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.
Former FIFA official Mohamed bin Hammam has admitted he received a payment from a World Cup organizing committee account after the awarding of the 2006 World Cup to Germany. However, he denied the money was a bribe.
German prosecutors are reported to have found that Franz Beckenbauer made a false statement regarding the scandal related to the 2006 World Cup. There was no immediate comment from the footballing legend.
The new academy that the DFB plans to build is designed to set new standards in digital match analysis. Big data is thought to be the future of football and Germany is aiming to be the world leader in this field.
The German FA has said it will fight an order to pay millions of euros in back taxes. The case is related to the scandal surrounding Germany's successful bid to host the 2006 World Cup.
