Holzhäuser Says DFL Should Use Additional TV Money To Support Other Organizations

Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen Managing Dir Wolfgang Holzhäuser said that "the German Football League (DFL) should use its additional income of €216M ($274M) a year from the sale of Bundesliga TV rights for other sports and organizations," according to the SID. Holzhäuser said the additional income should not be "distributed with a watering can using the current distribution method" to the DFL clubs. Holzhäuser said, "I could imagine using part of the money in the fight against doping." His concrete plan is to increase the support of Germany's National Anti-Doping Agency. The DFL will receive €628M ($797M) annually instead of currently €412M ($523M) a year from the sale of its TV rights starting in '13-14 (SID, 11/13).
