Majority shareholder Martin Kind from Hannover 96 expects that a decision on the 50 + 1 rule in German professional football will be made in an ordinary court. "My assessment is: it will go to court at some point," said the managing director of the outsourced professional football company of the second division football club on Monday to the German press agency.



Majority shareholder Martin Kind from Hannover 96 expects that a decision on the 50 + 1 rule in German professional football will be made in an ordinary court.

"My assessment is: it will go to court at some point," said the managing director of the outsourced professional football company of the second division football club on Monday to the German press agency.

Hanover - The 50 + 1 rule, which only applies in Germany, essentially stipulates that a parent association must continue to hold the majority of the votes in the new corporation after its professional department has been outsourced.

The Federal Cartel Office published a preliminary assessment at the end of May, according to which the 50 + 1 rule is basically compatible with antitrust law.

However, the special permits for VfL Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen and 1899 Hoffenheim would mean a “competitive disadvantage” for all other clubs, because “club-shaped and investor-financed clubs compete side by side”.

ECJ: Poland has to pay a fine in the dispute over opencast mining

In the dispute over the Turow lignite mining on the border with Saxony, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has sentenced Poland to a fine.

Despite an interim ECJ order from May, Warsaw did not stop lignite mining, according to an order from ECJ Vice-President Rosario Silva de Lapuerta on Monday.

Therefore, from now on Poland has to pay 500 for every day on which it does not comply with the order.

The three clubs have until the end of this month to comment. According to this, the German Football League (DFL), as the umbrella organization of the 36 German professional clubs, is required to find a solution that takes everything into account: the antitrust concerns, the situation of the three exceptional clubs and the pro-50 + 1 stance of a large majority of the clubs. That is exactly what the child thinks is difficult. “I don't have the imagination how such a decision should look like. It's a Gordian knot, ”he said.

At Hannover 96 the situation is particularly spicy.

There Kind wanted to get an exemption from the 50 + 1 rule in order to enable long-term sponsors to have a majority stake in the professional football society.

An opposition resisted, was elected to the head of the mother association Hannover 96 eV in 2019 - and on Sunday at the general meeting, the 50 + 1 rule was anchored in the statutes of the traditional association.

“The members decided that.

You have to respect that, ”said the child.
