After 39 years, during which the German Football Association (DFB) had governed all aspects of the game including professional football, the clubs and joint stock companies of the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 finally took the plunge and established their own League Association. 18 December 2000 saw the foundation of this new, independent body, which together with the DFB forms the two pillars upon which German football rests. Equal in status with the regional and sub-regional FAs, the League Association is an ordinary DFB member association vested with the right to vote at the DFB‘s triennial Congress. Acting on behalf of the League Association, the DFL organises and deals with all of the professional game’s operative aspects, which are comprised under the four headings of Rights and Licenses, Match Operations, Finances and Licensing, as well as Marketing and Communication. The six-strong supervisory council, whose remit is to monitor the DFL’s activities, consists of four members elected by the League Association general assembly, plus the League President and Senior Vice-President. The supervisory council also appoints the DFL Directors put in charge of the four departments outlined above. The League Association itself has an eleven-members Executive Board consisting of the League President, the Senior Vice- President and the Vice-President, four elected board members and the four DFL Directors.
