Description
The first momentum in terms of women's football was in 1989 when we hosted the European Championship in Germany. There were only four teams at the time, only four teams took part. Germany were the outsiders and won the final 4-1 against the favourites at the time, Norway. It was a real breakthrough for women's and girls' football. Since then there have been several highlights, with European titles and two World Cup titles. And in terms of club football, VFL Wolfsburg won the Champions League twice in a row. So not only the national team but also at club level, the fact that German girls and women's football is on top is great for fuelling the enthusiasm at grassroots level. Of the 7 million players at the DFB, one million are female. So we must promote girls' and women's football, and we do that with pure conviction.
