Berlin – It’s about honesty and justice. It’s about the rule 50 + 1. The debate about this economic formula is now part of German professional football like the discussions about the 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 game systems, except that the Federal Cartel Office is not involved in the latter. This Wednesday, the German Football League (DFL) wants to announce how it will deal with 50 + 1 in the future and whether it may even allow investors to become involved that exceeds half of the total budget. Above all, she will have to explain how she deals with the special cases of the Bundesliga, with the works clubs Bayer Leverkusen and VfL Wolfsburg, with the Hoffenheimers who are sponsored by a patron. The Cartel Office demands honesty, fairness and improvement on this point. The three clubs oppose it.
