Project Fussball returns for a third season.
With Bayern Munich daring to win a 10th consecutive Bundesliga title, Germany’s top-flight continues to suffer from a competition issue. At the heart of the debate is German football’s most complex and yet most important rule: the 50+1 rule.
In season three, Project Fussball delivers the defintive series on the rule.
We outline what it is, speak to those who work with it on a daily basis, discuss the pros and cons to the rule, explain the future of the rule and hear from a board member of one of Germany’s most traditional clubs about why 50+1 is a part of German football’s soul.
Join us to understand why this rule matters and why it sets Germany apart from other European nations.
Everyone knows who scored the winner on Saturday in the Bundesliga and which games Germany have before the World Cup, but what about the bigger topics in the world’s most popular sport?
Project Fussball is a podcast dedicated to the stories, not scorelines, reasons, not results of German football.
In Germany, football is deeply woven into the tapestry of society, so what are the stories beyond the score lines? Who should we be listening to? And what must we learn from them?
Writer, commentator and podcaster James Thorogood will host the show, but the stars of Project Fussball will be the guests and experts as we look to dive into a diverse range of topics with a variety of voices.
Join us as we explore the role and responsibilities of football and tackle the issues changing the face of German football culture.
