surprised, he is not surprising, explaining the diverting Supervisory Board of the German Football League (DFL), which had been proposed by the Westphalian Athletics and Football Association for the Supreme Office in German football. But: "The conference has neither a proposal for an Office nor can it set the electoral procedure. That is the responsibility of the Bundestag in accordance with the Articles of Association and Rules of Procedure. However, it is increasingly conferring another impression that I think is democratically difficult," says Peters. Already in the run-up to today's meeting rumors had emerged that certain officials would have such a pre-vote on the agenda. In fact, the Kicker agenda of the meeting had only two points relating to the DFB Bundestag, where on March 11, 2022 the successor of Fritz Keller is elected: "Personalia" and "applications".

  Louisiana Tech, football coach Skip Holtz parts way with after nine seasons Louisiana Tech said Friday it was parting ways with football coach Skip Holtz after nine seasons.

The personal discussions and assessments of the delegates are more important to me." In the eyes of the former Schalke financial board ", many delegated votes are not considered at all in these supposed resolutions at all, which does not correct the image of German football."

Select the delegates secret or in the open vote on March 11?

The maneuver looks astonishing in view of the fact that there is no formal consequences, and could be interpreted as an attempt to convince Peters from the withdrawal and to dissuade potential further applicants from a possible candidacy. Especially since the question is being discussed hot: Select the delegates secret on 11 March or in the open vote? The statute basically sees a secret choice. However, for the case of a single candidate, a public vote can be brought about upon request. A circumstance, which made for irritations at the last Bundestag 2019, because some delegates were based on the query of the former chairman to the open choice only to the presidential election. But then, certainly 'en bloc' was not-secret matched. About it complied with officials in a break.

The question of secret vote concerns less the presidential election, but the Vice President.

Rainer chef out, which runs the DFB currently together with Peters interim-once - once again. His critics to which numerous representatives of DFL are a strive for a non-public vote. On the part of the provincial associations, then the Hamburg Association Chief Christian Okun described opposite the kicker, one obviously assumes a secret election in March.
