The DFB is financially struggling – now a new basic contract with the Bundesliga should bring in more money. But the construction is daring: the association’s income could be significantly lower than is currently suggested.
The delegates of the German Football Association (DFB) will only gather virtually this Friday for an extraordinary Bundestag. That could suit some officials around DFB President Bernd Neuendorf. Although face-to-face events at the DFB rarely turn out to be a place of controversy, experience has shown that the digital format increases the reluctance. The reason for this special meeting is a topic that actually needs discussion.
