DFL managing director hops: Future vision for football

Christian Seifert left great footsteps after his farewell to the German football league of his successor Donata Hopfen. He had brought the DFL to a new level as managing director and, above all, in terms of innovative strength. So it is now being observed with tension to what extent the DFL continues under hops. The 46-year-old, which has been in office since the beginning of the year, has recently given a comprehensive insight into Düsseldorf as part of the sports and technology fair “Sports innovation 2022”, where she presented her future vision for German football.

“We want to be the world’s most digital football league!”

The second day of SportsInnovation 2022 in review
“As originally the core of the game is and remains, the role of football changes over time – and the wishes of the fans,” said Hopfen, referring to various innovative approaches with which the DFL deals with and the younger generations and the “Bundesliga experience” wants to individualize more. The technological progress is essential: “There are incredibly great opportunities in front of us – the digital possibilities and formats are far from exhausted,” she emphasized. Your claim is clear: “We want to be the most digital football league in the world!”

On-Field interviews during the game?

Thanks to the fast 5G internet and more digital services such as virtual reality features on the smartphone, the stadium experience should become even more impressive. According to hops, the TV pictures of the Bundesliga, which can be transmitted in the stadium worldwide with up to 29 different cameras, should also become even more diverse and spectacular. In particular, new cameras such as the Cinematic Look Camera with their special focus, mini drones over the square and the rapid fast rail and rocket cams, which drive along the edge of the field or below the stadium roof and offer the spectators completely new perspectives. The DFL is also testing the possibility of performing on-field interviews with players during the game via a mini-drone-for example before penalty situations.

more interactivity for fans

Your own media value chain will also develop under hops and offer more interactivity: For example, a new “Interactive Feed” enables fans to configure the Bundesliga conference, repeat highlight scenes and access individual game data. In addition, in the “Tactical Feed” all 20 field players are kept in mind from the camera main picture and relevant information and graphics such as the “Bundesliga Match Facts” are shown on the edge of the screen. The “Social Media Matchday Feed” offers more options for participation, which enables the club’s social media reporters to deliver additional live content before, during and after the games.

The DFL strategy lived under Seifert to shine through digitization and innovations is obviously continued by hops, and even intensified. But how far does this innovation drive go? For this purpose, hops and the DFL in scientific cooperation with the WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management dealt intensively with the media usage behavior of younger generations (Z and Alpha). Hops predicted that automation and sustainability in the production of a Bundesliga game will continue to increase: “The number and performance of the cameras will continue to increase. Together with specific software, the direction will then be able to show almost any conceivable perspective of the game.”

“Optimal interaction of reach and monetization”

According to hops, the diversity of data in the Bundesliga will also be larger, which in turn enables new types and formats of storytelling: “These also help to tie fans closer, to better understand the game, to understand decisions and to discuss them on social media.” The personalization of the content will continue to progress: “At some point each fan will see his own transmission specially tailored to it.” For the digital expert, the potential of meta-verse will also play a major role in the future: “In the future, young fans in particular will want to experience sporting events more and more in a virtual environment.” With a maximum range, the DFL boss wants to achieve the greatest possible enthusiasm for the Bundesliga and “achieve an optimal interplay of reach and monetization”.

Spagath between tradition and innovation

Despite all the further development opportunities in football, hops are about the connection between tradition and innovation.
It wants to continue to advance technological progress in German professional football and at the same time do not spoil traditional fans.
A very difficult balancing act.

FC Bayern: video shop during training

Julian Nagelsmann has already pressed FC Bayern on the field this season. Now the coach has also started to change the training at the record champions according to his ideas.

Before the last Bundesliga game this season at VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday (3:30 p.m.), Nagelsmann caused a sensation with a huge video screen, which he had built on the edge of the field.

On the screen, the 34-year-old showed his team training directly on the square. Already on Wednesday he gathered his players in front of the screen to give them theory and practice.

Software made it possible for the trainer to change between videos, animations and power point presentation in order to visually underline his ideas.

Behind the Scenes: This is how the FC Bayern Training Camp in Grassau looked like

As Sam Stanton, a former chief analyst at Bristol City, told the “Training Ground Guru” portal, the system is particularly helpful in training the standard situation. Video analysis on the field combines the explanation of tactical ideas with their implementation and can help to show mistakes.

widespread in England – now also at FC Bayern

At the same time, the training becomes more efficient because, for example, less time in team meetings for video seal is necessary, says Stanton.

With the help of drones, the training could even be filmed to generate analysis material from a bird’s eye view.

Nagelsmann is considered the major advocate of modern training methods. He had already resorted to a video shop at the time of the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim.

Clubs from England have also been on such technology for several years. Manchester City has equipped the training area with several large screens, and a video wall can also be found in the practice complex at Manchester United.

Fabian Klos: It was rewarded how I live the club

This Saturday, the often certified ability of the supporters of Arminia Bielefeld will have to withstand a major challenge. In the final home game against RB Leipzig, it is important to cope with the almost inevitable descent. To this end, the fans experience the last appearance of some of their heroes of the past few years, especially those of the currently injured cult player Fabian Klos.

Auf Wiedersehen Fabian Klos; die Pressekonferenz
If everything comes as it is prescribed, it will be the second sporting descent for Klos with Arminia. After the first in 2014 from the 2nd league, dramatically concluded in the relegation against Darmstadt, he had quickly and unconventional to stay in Bielefeld in the heyday of his career and to remedy the accident. From then on, the later club record goalkeeper accompanied the constant upswing to the 2nd league including the consolidation there up to the acclaimed Bundesliga promotion in 2020.

The last contract year at Arminia should be different for Klos. After relegation in 2021, to which he had also contributed considerably again with his goal in the last game in the 2-0 victory in Stuttgart, there were rather half-cooked solutions. The 33-year-old at the time was supposed to hang up a year, step by step into the role of the back-up for the next generation of strikers. He should not hand in the captain’s armband, instead share with the co-captain Manuel Prietl. All of this didn’t really work.

I don’t leave any gaps open that could not be closed.

Fabian Klos

The successors in attack like Bryan Lasme and Janni Serra hardly met Bundesliga claims. Prietl looked pale and overwhelmed as captain, and also had a difficult year due to illness. Klos himself initially swam with the announcement of his farewell at the end of the season in February, after Arminia had developed a six-point lead before the penultimate place in the table with a 1-0 victory over Union Berlin: ” I said the boys in the team after the game against Union that I was very proud of the victory. I wish nothing more than that we do it the same way in the next games, “said the Gifhorner native. “I don’t leave any gaps open here that could not be closed. We have a young, good team that is developing further and further. With people who hopefully can step in my footsteps at some point.”

difficult relationship between Klos and Arabi

Klos’ hopes were not confirmed. The team structure did not remain unencumbered with the difficult relationship between him and sports director Samir Arabi, including, among other things, he could no longer become a big key figure in the relegation battle. Finally, the severe and unhappy head injury against Stuttgart (1-1) in early April. On a stretcher he left the field on the day that he would have liked to have entered as a player in the rest of the season and on which he can now experience the deserved, great applause from the Bielefeld public for the last time.

Small consolation maybe: The countless, already expressed priorities for the ever popular player are presumably more worth it than a monument near the stadium that some admirers already demanded for their “football god”. “It was rewarded by the fans how I live the club. The title will remain connected to my name forever,” said Klos at the great homage of the stands. “I feel honored that there is a petition for a statue, but now I’m not the type who has to or want to see a great image of itself every day.”

Klos continues his career elsewhere

Klos’ energy seemed unbroken until the end, and at his farewell press conference he announced that he wanted to continue his career elsewhere. Not completely excluded that he will meet “his” Arminia in the 2nd division next year.

If one day he appears in Bielefeld in the colors of another club – the local fan soul would undoubtedly be put to the test again.

Italy, Series A: Florence duke Roma

After the 1-0 in the semi-final round over Leicester, which had also been a game of tears, the almost unchanged Roma team from Coach José Mourinho presented itself unusually tired, weary, unimaginative and generally weak in the duels.

Foxes European Journey Ends In Rome | Roma 1 Leicester City 0 | Europa Conference League
The domestic fioretina, which in this direct duel in the struggle for the Europa League ranks directly from the start, accelerated, accelerated and immediately came to a penalty thanks to Gonzalez. The Argentinian, who came from VfB Stuttgart before the season, had tricked himself into the sixteen in the second minute before Karsdorp came with his leg too late – and referee Marco Guida after VAR intervention and her own image study. Gonzalez started and converted safely into the lower left corner to the 1-0 lead.

But that’s not all: because the Roman and 20-year-old Zalewski against the starting Bonaventura did pretty much everything wrong (too far away, wrong posture, no intervention at all), it was already 0: 2 from the point of view of the conference League final participants. The 32-year-old Bonaventura was therefore able to shoot into the left corner freely and easily from a few meters.

Florenz pushes

It was only with this goal “Mous Team” woke up a bit, became more passionate about the direct duels and subsequently also came to a few dangerous deals (Pellegrini free kick in the 20th, Abraham header in the 54th). Rather, this evening simply shouldn’t succeed, also because the domestic viola supported by its fans in the Artemio Franchi was defensively and repeatedly started relief attacks. Only the accuracy of these counterattacks was missing in order to ultimately form an even clearer result.

In the final minutes, Mourinho still took the opportunity to help his comeback to help the Italian EM hero Spinazzola, which was long after his Achilles tendon tear. The outdoor car player hadn’t kicked since July.

No question, the 2-0 for the Tuscans was absolutely well deserved, which came even more excitement in the fight for international business behind the Italian Top 4 (Milan, Inter, Napoli, Juve). From then on it says: Lazio is in 5th place with 62 points and thus has pole position two rounds before the end of the season, followed by the Roma and the Fiorentina and also Atalanta with 59 points each.

Oilers shoot home game against Sharks – Draisaitl

NHL Highlights | Oilers vs. Sharks - Apr. 28, 2022
The Oilers caught up three times against the San Jose Sharks and won 5: 4 after extension. Superstar Draisaitl posted a goal on Thursday and is now at 110 scorer points. His team -mate Connor McDavid, who also prepared a goal, is on first place on the scorer list.

Draisaitl’s gap to Auston Matthews in the scoring list remained unchanged. The attacker of the Toronto Maple Leafs stands at 60 goals, Draisaitl has 55 goals before the last main round game against Vancouver on Friday evening (local time).

Presidents’ Trophy goes to the Panthers

The top talent Tim Stützle, which was over 19 minutes, had no chance with the Ottawa Senators against the Florida Panthers, who secured the Presidents’ Trophy through the 4: 0 – for the best balance in the regular season. The Colorado Avalanche also scored this award, but Nico Sturm’s team (10 minutes of ice age, no scorer point) lost 4: 5 after penalty shootout at home against Nashville Predators. Despite five defeats from the last six games, the Avalanche are the best team in the Western Conference.

Hamann counts Rose: BVB should worry

VfL Bochum gave BVB a lesson in terms of use and passion on matchday 32. Not the first time that an actually inferior opponent bought the cutter of Marco Rose’s team. Ex-international Dietmar Hamann wonders whether the coach may be part of the problem.

Ex-international Dietmar Hamann found clear words for the performance and subsequent explanations of the Dortmund for the 3: 4 defeat against VfL Bochum. “This is embarrassing,” said the “Sky” expert. There was “excuse for excuse,” the 48-year-old rumbled. The whole season of BVB was “underground”, Hamann said.

Yes, the BVB has achieved its minimum goal with the qualification for the Champions League. “But they are twelve points behind FC Bayern. What the Dortmunders did this season is not enough for me,” said Hamann, who also spoke out of the soul of many BVB fans.

Said fans took air after the final whistle in the form of a loud whistle concert. Not the first time that the black and yellow trailers acknowledged their team with whistles. “I have the feeling that the mood is turning at the moment. The players are whistled or insulted,” Hamann observes a questionable development in Dortmund.

Hamann: BVB should worry

But where exactly is the problem of BVB? “They do wonderful work when it comes to scouting and newcomers. Adeyemi and Schlotterbeck are very good newcomers. But the best of the team also has to be taken out of the team,” Hamann, above all, takes on the coaching team around Marco Rose.

The “Sky” expert recognizes a pattern here that the executive floor in his eyes should possibly think of. “I don’t know if you shouldn’t even worry about whether you have the right trainer,” Hamann indicated that Marco Rose should be questioned by the Hamanning leadership.

In the past few weeks, various media reports have already indicated that this is happening. At the beginning of April, “Bild” reported that Rose was no longer undisputed internally. A few days later, the “Hamann Bild” also wrote that thoughts are given in the club. Managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke in particular is “torn back and forth”.

NBA Playoffs: Disaströzen Philadelphia 76ers go under in the BuH concert

The fans of the Philadelphia 76ers are slowly nervous. Toronto has also decided game 5 against the Sixers for themselves and shortened with a coexistent 103: 88 victory in the series to 2-3. Philly collects a buoy of own fans.

Philadelphia 76ers (4) – Toronto Raptors (5) 88: 103 (Boxscore), Series: 3-2

Already at the half-time break, the Sixers fans were fed up and adopted their team with loud bus boots in the half-time break. The home owners gave the catastrophic second quarter with 14:25, but it was not better but not better. Philadelphia did not manage to start a run because the stars could not push their stamp to the game.

Joel Embiid was already with 20 points (only 7 points in half two, with 11 rebounds at 5 fouls) best scorer of the hosts, James Harden disappointed all the line. The Beard finished the game with 15 points and 7 assists at 4/11 FG. Tobias Harris (16, 6/16 FG) or Tyrese MaMey (15, 5/14 FG) could not build on their previously strong appearances.

Thus, the Raptors may continue to make hopes for a sensation. The Canadians are only the 14th of 146 teams, which can force a game 6 after a 0-3 residue in a Best of Seven series.

Pascal Siakam led his colors with 23 points, 10 boards and 7 assists, Precious Achiuwa contributed 17 meters, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks from the bank. Also above. Anunoby or Gary Trent Jr. knucked with 16 points each. In the night on Friday, the Raptors want to force a decision game in Toronto.

“No fight”: Sixers go against Raptors

Toronto also became significantly better in the game without the Fred Vanvleet exposed due to hip problems, the initially strong Embiid kept the Sixers but still in stroke distance. But when the center and harden took place at the beginning of the second quarter at the same time on the bank, the disaster took his run.

NBA Gametime
The guests started with a 12-0 run in the game, even as Embiid came back to the Court, stuttered the Sixers engine. Only in the tenth stop, the households succeeded in the second round of the first hits, Danny Green (14, 4/9 threesome) now beamed out of Downtown a little danger. But otherwise, Philly was absolutely nothing together.

Only 5 of the 22 throw tests in the second round landed in the basket (22.7 percent, and the Sixers with a total of 10 ball losses in the first half of themselves had the life difficult. A spectacular layup from Maxey still remained the only highlight, Toronto sat down until On 15 points and went with 54:41 in the half-time break.

“We did not deliver a fight today,” the served Tobias Harris had to admit. The operational readiness of his team was “terrible”. That continued after the second change. Siakam and Achiuwa now made steam for the Raptors, the Sixers did not approach anymore.

Significant was in the end, as Anunoby could make the lid on the game with a Driving Dunk in the fourth neighborhood with a Driving Dunk. Numerous Sixers fans had already left their seats, far from the final buzzer.

Schiri Siebert admits fault with FC Bayern vs. BVB

Again, after a duel between FC Bayern and the BVB, the referee was the focus. Daniel Siebert expressed himself the day after the game – and regretted two wrong decisions.

During the FC Bayern after the 3-1 victory in the top match of the Bundesliga celebrated the tenth championship in a row with the fans, the mood was not too dazzling at the guests from Dortmund. In particular, two scenes caused displeasure.

Siebert over Pavard’s grass against Brandt: “Biggest mistake in the game”

At first there was the duel between Julian Brandt and Benjamin Pavard in the 49th minute. The Frenchman met the Dortmund national player pretty clearly with his grassy on the ankle. The game continued. “That was the biggest mistake in this game and my evaluation of this scene I am very annoying,” Daniel Siebert said in conversation with the “kicker”.

“Brandt is spared at a high speed towards Munich Tor and Pavard sets from the side-back quite controlled to the grasse to play the ball,” explained the impartial and came to a clear conclusion: “But he only meets Brand’s ankle, so it was so it was A clear foul that would also have been mandatory with yellow. “

Schiedsrichter Siebert äußert sich zu Fehlentscheidungen im Topspiel zwischen Bayern vs Dortmund !
Siebert had deceived by the perspective and thought Pavard played the ball. “I’m glad that Brandt could continue playing and apparently did not seriously violate,” the 37-year-old continued.

Siebert: There must have been penalty for the BVB

The second scene was those who made the biggest displeasure among the BVB officers. Pavard first brought Jew Bellingham into a grace in his own penalty area and then touched the ball.

Siebert decided to continue playing. From his view also a mistake. “Crash would have been the right decision,” emphasized the referee. “This first attempt fails, Pavard does not play the ball, his leg represents an obstacle instead of Bellingham. Control technology is a chance and thus a foul. That Pavard touches the ball shortly afterwards is irrelevant,” the 37 led -Year-old.

Pavard hidden him in this situation, so he decided against a penalty whistle. He could decide as a referee “not to suspect” on penalty. The fact that there was no VaR intervention caused the BVB for irritation.

“One would have to look at the situation at least,” Kehl demanded the “kicker”. Siebert now also meant that the foul was visible. “Especially in the camera setting ‘Hintertor high’, however, in this case the criminal contact of Pavard is clearly recognizable to Bellingham,” he shared.

PSG is missing after victory a point to the title

Paris St. Germain is the tenth championship title in the French Ligue 1 only theoretically to take. PSG won on Wednesday 3: 0 (2: 0) at Angers SCO and is five gaming days before the end 15 points in front of Olympique Marseille. The spread of the table posted the decision by a 3: 2 (1: 2) against FC Nantes.

Paris is therefore missing a point to follow with title number ten to record champion AS St. Etienne. Nearest opponent is on Saturday RC Lens.

On Wednesday, World Champion Kylian Mbappe (28th), Sergio Ramos (45. + 1) and Marquinhos (77.) for PSG. Sweeper was injured in the Parisians in the starting, national team colleague Julian Draxler was missing.
