MSV Duisburg | FM22 | Top of the Table Encounter | Episode 8

The German professional football once again has a club chairman: Nicole Kumpis has been elected at third division Eintracht Braunschweig to the President. The 48-year-olds sat down at the Virtual Extraordinary General Assembly on Wednesday evening with 472 votes just against Axel Ditzinger (411). There were seven abstentions. The previous counterholder Christoph Bratmann at the German master of 1967 had not been re-elected last November. Kumpis is first the second president in German professional football. In 1986, Gisela Schwerdt stood for 266 days of the then second division Arminia Bielefeld.
