Berlin (dpa) – 14 Bundesliga football clubs and second division Hamburger SV are planning to meet, according to information from “Bild am Sonntag” on November 11 in Frankfurt to discuss important issues in German professional football.
The meeting will take place under the leadership of the top clubs Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen, but without representatives of the German football league.
The Bundesliga clubs FSV Mainz 05, FC Augsburg, Arminia Bielefeld and VfB Stuttgart have not been invited. Mainz, Stuttgart and Bielefeld, as well as 2nd division clubs, would try to redistribute television money. Therefore, apparently the encounter should be only marginal. Among other things, it will be discussed who will succeed DFL Managing Director Christian Seifert, who will leave at the end of June 2022. The next steps in the Corona crisis and the current situation at the German Football Association should also be on the agenda.
