Which clubs voted for and which against?

The billion-dollar deal fell through: the controversial investor entry into the German Football League (DFL) failed due to massive resistance from its own ranks. At the meeting of the 36 professional clubs on Wednesday in Frankfurt/Main, the two-thirds majority required to start negotiations with potential donors was missed.

The skeptics about the club management of 1. FC Köln and FC St. Pauli have thus prevailed. The critics, which also include numerous fan groups, had denounced the possible influence of a donor and the further cementing of the sporting balance of power. Details of the planned agreement that have recently become known suggested exactly that.

Only 20 of the 36 professional clubs had voted for the controversial investor entry – four votes were missing for the necessary two-thirds majority. Because the eleven opponents in the posh Frankfurt airport hotel Sheraton also had five abstentions. Which clubs voted for and which against? Not everyone knows this, but some do.

  • FC Bayern Munich
  • Borussia Dotmund
  • Eintracht Frankfurt
  • Sc freiburg
