Volkswagen is not taking any consequences from the scandal surrounding the "One Love" armband banned by FIFA.

Other partners also remain loyal to the DFB.

For football fans, a World Cup is usually the highlight of the year.

But this time everything is different: a winter dream instead of a summer fairy tale.

The public viewing takes place with mulled wine in hand, while the advent wreath announces the upcoming Christmas celebrations.

But the mood for the World Cup doesn't really want to arise: many people are boycotting the tournament entirely because of the human rights situation in Qatar.

And the scandal surrounding the "One Love" bandage that Manuel Neuer should have worn does not paint a good picture of the World Cup.

And that has consequences for the DFB.

With Rewe, the first partner these days has already drawn the first conclusions and is letting its sponsorship rest.

The contract with the DFB, which expires at the end of the year, should not be extended without it.

At Volkswagen - the association's mobility partner since 2019 - they also have a clear opinion on the events.

Volkswagen will remain a sponsor of the DFB in the future.

The discussions and reactions show that something fundamental needs to change in world football!” emphasized Voss.
