The 100th anniversary of FC Eitting in early summer was an unparalleled effort.
In the general meeting of the FC, chairman Martin Lenz reviewed “the great party”.
Eitting - .
He referred to the festival committee, which planned everything in an exemplary manner months before the festival – and to the many volunteers without whom such a mammoth effort could not have worked.
At the end of this month there will be a helper's meal.
"After the pandemic, everyone was just happy to be able to celebrate again," said Lenz, who also referred to the summer party, for which 280 guests significantly exceeded the usual number of almost 200.
The chairman urgently asked for more support for the club, even if it was only for one hour a week with youth work or with work on the pitch.
The players should also use resources sustainably, such as switching off the floodlights in good time, turning down the heating and the like.
The association will recognize this and is therefore not thinking about increasing contributions at the moment.
Lenz reported on the construction of a new floodlight system on a training ground, which is equipped with energy-saving LED lamps and, thanks to various subsidies, has only had a small impact on the club's coffers.
Secretary Christoph Schmid gave an overview of the situation of the first and second football teams in game operations.
Then treasurer Martin Huber informed about the finances.
The 100-year celebration will only be included in the next annual statement, which will of course improve the club's finances.
Huber had booked over 600 receipts over the course of the year, all expenses totaled almost 114,000 euros, with the costs for the sports facility (50,000), repairs (7,000), sports equipment and games (50,000) being the main items.
In terms of income, contributions, perimeter advertising, stadium newspapers, photovoltaic systems and spectator income in particular remained stable.
The BLSV club fee has doubled to 8,200 euros, while donations and subsidies have remained roughly the same.
After the discharge, auditor Josef Strasser pointed out the immense work of the long-standing chairman Alfred Neudecker, who was in charge of the commemorative publication for the 100th anniversary, which was distributed to all households in Eitting.
A few days ago, Neudecker was awarded the volunteer prize by the Bavarian State Sports Association (BLSV) (see report above).
The BLSV introduced the "Silent Stars" honor for hard-working employees behind the scenes.
Astrid Brückl, who has been washing the jerseys of the Eittinger footballers for over 20 years, found out about this.
However, she was unable to accept the honor personally from BLSV district chairman Martin Weber, chairman Lenz will present her with the certificate personally.
FC Eitting also attaches great importance to the promotion of young talent and has therefore booked individual support training for C, D and E juniors once a week at the Martin Platzer talent sports school in Erding.
The aim is to convey as much as possible to these youth players during their effective learning phase so that they become better players.
Currently, 56 children from U 6 to U 10 are active in the small field.
In the large-field area, 44 players are divided into four youth classes, where some game communities have also been founded.

FC Eitting hosted the ice tournament in Waldkraiburg for the first time in the club's history.
However, the Eittinger Bayernliga team was not in top form and was relegated to the district league.
In the summer season, three Eittinger teams competed.
The First (Oberliga) finished fourth, the Second (BOL) finished sixth and the Third finished fourth in their class.
Overall, FC Eitting took part in over 50 tournaments at home and abroad.
