150 million approved for academy construction

Actually, it should go to the Extraordinary DFB Bundestag primarily for the approval of the construction of the new DFB Academy. But the most expensive project of the DFB history was no longer a fuss. There was much more need for discussion about the difficult fourth-league question.

From the seasons 2018/19 and 2019/20 there will be four instead of three newcomers from the five regional leagues. A direct right of promotion is obtained in both seasons of the champions of the Regionalliga Südwest. The champions of the other leagues get this right only once and have to play once in a playoff. A special highlight was the appointment of Philipp Lahm as honorary captain. This award was previously only Fritz Walter, Uwe Seeler, Franz Beckenbauer, Lothar Matthäus and at the last Bundestag in Erfurt 2016 also Jürgen Klinsmann. At the same time, Lahm is taking on a promotion job for the German Football Association (DFB) and is advertising as Euro-ambassador for the German EM candidacy in 2024.

APA not only had the honor to prepare the event in DFB-look, but also was able to install a spectacularly large stage back wall of 18 x 7 m wrinkle-free in one piece.
