Alfons Hörmann Ideas on German Football
Now, Alfons Hörmann has resigned as President of the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB). Even six and a half weeks before his resignation on December 4th in Weimar, he still talked. There is even an easier way for him to speak: over social media! The outgoing boss has drawn government officials and politicians to recognize the importance of sports in people’s health.

Hörmann told a conference of sports officials that German sport would be successful where the state does not interfere and fail where officials have a hand in it in ten years. Hörmann warned that after the poor performance at this the Olympics. Most of the colleagues involved in sports policy for German professional sports associations and those facing these policies within state-level federations would have to agree with this concise opinion.
However, one top official has combined this general praise with the other side of an analogy. He says that if the list were to correspond to how the sport is in Germany after eight years under Hörmann’s leadership at DOSB, then at least one person would bear responsibility for it-Hörmann himself.
If the contract is awarded to Weimar, a considerable repair program will be required. The National and International political capacity of the DOSB has suffered significantly. This relationship with officials in the Federal Ministry of Interior, responsible for top-class funding sports, broke down because they were so frustrated by their work that they demanded changes. In addition, Thomas Bach revealed an enormous distance between himself and those at the helm of this organization when he sent them an open letter.
The increasing demand for society to unify sport with climate protection is rolling towards the DOSB. The top-level sports reform that has been stuck here must be accelerated and reduced bureaucracy. More initiatives are needed, like founding a sporting company of their own or agreeing with BMI employees after years of estrangement that deep interventions in the operational business of sports should not be necessary anymore, even if they are counterproductive.
