FRANZ BECKENBAUER RECEIVES HONORARY AWARD 2022
On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the German Football Ambassadors e.V. will award Franz Beckenbauer with the Honorary Award 2022. The award stands for the life’s work of the football legend and will be presented with the participation of numerous celebrities on 19 May 2022 at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin. “All those who were able to get to know him privately see a person full of kindness, down-to-earthness and generous charity. Or in this case: an absolutely worthy winner of the 2022 Honorary Award for his life’s work!”, Roland Bischof, as President of the non-profit association, had already emphasised at the announcement.
Franz Beckenbauer expressed his thanks via video message: “I would like to thank you very much for this award. It is a great honour for me.” As he was unable to attend in person due to the stress of travelling, Heidrun Beckenbauer accepted the award on behalf of her husband from Reiner Calmund, who also held the laudatory speech.

INITIATOR - Roland Bischof is the driving force behind the idea of the German Football Ambassador
For 10 years now, Roland Bischof has been the driving force behind the good idea of the German Football Ambassador. With great commitment and private financing (the football ambassador has no public funding such as grants or subsidies!) he built up a nationally known and internationally active movement in a very short time.
He brought numerous supporting personalities and companies together, whereby Rainer Holzschuh and Dr. Norbert Taubken in particular, were important companions and close advisors on his way.
