New allegations have emerged over the scandal at the DFB, which stands accused of knowingly covering up a slush fund list that shows high-ranking football officials were paid off in order for Germany to host the World Cup in 2006.
German media have reported that the German Football Association (DFB) might end its long partnership with premium carmaker Mercedes and switch to rival Volkswagen as the car sponsor for the national team.
Mercedes' days as lead sponsor of the German Football Federation (DFB) are counted. The dieselgate tricksters of Volkswagen are taking over. That's more bad news for Mercedes' parent company Daimler, says Henrik Böhme.
Tax authorities have uncovered a cache of deleted files pertinent to an investigation into Germany's 2006 World Cup bid. Members of the organizing committee face allegations of fraud, corruption and misappropriation.
Swiss prosecutors looking into corruption allegations surrounding the 2006 World Cup have conducted another series of raids. This came as the list of suspects grew to include a former senior FIFA official.
