Trouble in German Football: turn 180 degrees makes for huge problems

The press release of the German Football League (GFL) sounds authentic, and understanding. Up to the 24. July might choose the 16 clubs in the first League in American Football, if you "can't play because of the Corona of a pandemic in the autumn" and "your waiver to participate in the season". And those clubs, "which choose to participate, but later because of Corona-related changes but are not able to compete, need to fear no sanctions".

Everything is fine, everything is discussed like – you might think. However, in the past week published "additions caused a Statute to License" in the clubs in the GFL for annoyance. "Everything we have developed in the last few months, is off the table," says Alexander Korosek, the managing Director of the first division clubs Frankfurt Universe. Resentment arouses, among other things, Paragraph two of the Statute of additions. There is that only those clubs in 2021 could start in the League, the "Liability release and waiver (Appendix 1) legally effective under" have signed. Just this statement, however, was until recently still a major point of criticism of the clubs. Signed, says Carsten Dalkowski, the speaker of the GFL, but you should have now all.

another point of criticism lies in the fact that the League has left their clubs so far, in the Belief that no team had to give back the license if you don't want to participate because of the Covid-19 pandemic in a game of operation. This is exactly what happens now. "There's any understanding to listen to me," says Korosek. "These are completely new conditions." Dalkowski admits that the League had actually requested that no club had to give up his license. "But the Association saw this on a legal technicality otherwise. It was felt that there should be a license to return.“

Trouble on the duty to state reasons

in Addition, further barriers have been placed along the path to a temporary License are not. The League does not recognize the simple explanation, you want to align it with no games, because they are under the required hygiene measures economically. Only clubs that were opposed to the "negative impact of the Covid-19-pandemic, through its own Actions", could get the license back in season 2021 without problems, - stated in the Statute extensions. A club may lead such evidence, according to the League conclusively, it must reckon with sanctions. The amount of which is not called closer to.
