In addition, Carro would like future league boss Donata Hopfen to grow TV funds. “My clear expectation of the new DFL management is that the international TV revenues of the Bundesliga will increase significantly,” Carro told Sport Bild: “The value of the Bundesliga is far above what is currently being achieved, regardless of Corona -Effects.”
At the German Football League (DFL), Hopfen will take over the chairmanship of the management team from Christian Seifert and also the position of spokeswoman for the DFL Presidium from January 1st. Hopfen is currently working as a managing director and partner at a renowned management consultancy.
