Dietmar Hopp, Katrin Müller-Hohenstein, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Prof. Dr. Matthias Prinz and Johannes Ebert will support the association in an advisory board.
The Deutscher Fussball Botschafter e.V. has restructured its Advisory Board in order to further support the positive dynamics of recent years. In future, the initiative, which was founded in 2012, will be supported in an advisory capacity by four top-class personalities from the worlds of sport, business and culture. The aim of the advisory board’s activities is to place the national and international activities of the Deutscher Fussball Botschafter e.V. on a wide social spectrum. In this way, the activities at the interface between sport and social developments are to be consistently expanded in the upcoming years.
With Dietmar Hopp and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, we have won two personalities who have been committed to sport in Germany for decades and who, above all, have had a sustainable positive influence on football. Katrin Müller-Hohenstein will also contribute her expertise as a sports presenter and TV expert. In addition, Prof. Dr. Matthias Prinz (internationally renowned media law specialist) and Johannes Ebert (Secretary General of the Goethe-Institut) will make profitable use of their expertise and networks. Both are almost partners from the very beginning and, thanks to their experience with the Deutscher Fussball Botschafter e.V., can further promote the potential of the initiative for partners and the social impact.
Dr. Norbert Taubken, member of the board and managing director of the CSR consultancy Scholz & Friends Reputation, will lead the advisory board: “The new advisory board represents the plans of the Deutscher Fussball Botschafter e.V. There are many opportunities in all countries to promote social developments through the emotional power of football. We want to continue to exploit this potential and therefore contribute as a club to the positive image of Germany in the world. In order to make this possible, further personalities will be admitted to the advisory board in the near future.”
