Our national team has qualified as a group player for the World Cup in Qatar under Hans Flick. Our U-21 national team has become European champion this year. Our women’s national team has unbeaten for the European Championship in England. With Jürgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel and Ralf Rang nick, three of the top clubs in England currently employ a German head coach — in addition to the FC Arsenal with a Mertesacker one of the World Cup heroes of Rio for the offspring is responsible. With Florian With, Karim Adam, David Room and Lukas Mecca, promising talents have celebrated their debut in the A national team this year. So if changes in German football are not necessary? But on the contrary!

Our starting position is still good. But we all have the highest demands, want to start the fifth star for Germany and at 2024 the summer fairy tale 2.0. In some areas, however, other nations have expired the rank — such as. In the consequence, the talents and their individual development in the center, the individual support of top talents in the transitional area as well as the subject of data analysis and new technologies. I would therefore like to look back on an important and eventful year at this point, in which we have already turned to decisive set screws in order to return to the world top and to be successful in the future.

Publisher & converting engine

The DFB Academy works in here and now at the success of the German football of tomorrow by using numerous experts (note: The male form includes all sexes) our 15 national teams — men and women equally supported as a pioneer and implementation engine content.

Pulse generator & competence center

Our claim is to be the impetus and competence center for all German football. Therefore, we turn each stone individually and build u. A. An own Tech Lab, in which the latest technologies discovered, tested and checked for their added values ​​for football. Technology and digitization not as an end in itself, but as a means for the purpose of creating concrete solutions for real existing problems. For example, new impetus for our national teams and German football have delivered two hackathon formats in which new insights have been recovered in automated game analysis. The DFB Academy’s own leadership podcast allows views over the box and provides unique insights from leaders of all social areas.

External education institution

The DFB Academy continued to establish itself as a training and continuing education institution of German football last year: We have reformed all coaching in Germany by replacing the license pyramid by a staircase. New licensing levels such as the B + and A + license strengthen the individual development in child and youth football. In addition, we have developed a children’s coach app and started a first pilot project with two regional trainer developers.

In addition, we specifically invest in the key positions of German football by offering specific training programs for the coaches (e.g. elite head coach training, Excellence training, etc.). For the sports directors of the future, we have launched in the narrow shoulder with the professional clubs and the DFL a separate training program — there are more certificate programs for the LA leaders, sports psychologists and team managers. Through special common scholarships of DFB and DFL, women in football are sponsored in these programs. In addition, we implement offers for current and former national speakers. The well-founded education and training of key positions is a crucial success factor for the future of German football. The motto is always: Man and his individual development are in the center!
