Soccer, women: The FFC continues to live in harmony,

That is his "life's work", resulting in Siegfried Dietrich has also in the past few weeks, as the end of the FFC Frankfurt came as a pure women's football club getting closer and closer, never a secret made. The 22-year-long Era, which was marked in the first few years of a lot of success and in the last decade of a culture change within the club, came at the unfortunate home defeat (0:2) against SC Freiburg to an end. A result that is not reflected necessarily in the course of the game, but the need for the merger with Eintracht Frankfurt has shown.

So much Potential and the game wit the team proves again and again: There was a lack of maturity and playful class, in order to fulfil its own claim to play again in the medium term internationally.

the occurrence That the FFC women sometimes compelling and "hectic" as it is formulated coach Niko Arnautis, at the same time, was not a new finding in the stadium at the Brentanobad. However, the last official game as a pure women's football club, especially in the light of a final assessment of the past: the rise in the world's top professionalization of women's football, Champions League title and significantly higher social visibility – the merits and successes of the FFC should be for the last Time in a nostalgic manner, and celebrated the effort, even if the "big Party" could not take place due to the Corona-crisis in the Form of how the long-time companions would have liked.

What remained was a large poster on the empty category fan, in which head coaches and Team captains was paying homage to, as well as the presence of some of the protagonists of that unprecedented rise of the unknown SG Praunheim up to the four-time European Cup winners ' Cup: started in the former coach Monika Staab, the Dietrich until today, glad to have him, "the door to the women's soccer opened" up to influential players like Nia Künzer or Kerstin Garefrekes, as the concentrated FFC wool-history, finally, in front of the club, bow has you and your sports provides a milestone in terms of General acceptance.

that's why Dietrich made it clear before the game that the result on that day was secondary. He regards "the greatest possible gratitude for what we were able to move in the women's football". Melancholy was therefore not the dominant feeling, as Dietrich puts it: "Even if our name changes: the FFC will live in unity more."

Wolfsburg unbeaten, Cologne rises

And to then be able to offer eventually, VfL Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich, the forehead, made as in previous years, the ranks one and two: The FC Bayern accompanied champion VfL Wolfsburg, according to in the coming season in the Champions League. On the last round of the women's League in Munich on Sunday at SGS Essen came to a clear 3:0 (1:0)-success and secure place. With Bayern's second Champions League spot rival TSG Hoffenheim lost to Turbine Potsdam 1:2 (1:1).
