German Football Ambassadors Awards 2020 cancelled due to Coronavirus

Deutscher Fußball Botschafter e.V.

With a heavy heart, the German Football Ambassador (Deutscher Fußball Botschafter e.V.) made a decision of reason as the board in coordination with the German Foreign Office decided to cancel their award ceremony for May 26, 2020 in the capital’s representative office of the Deutsche Telekom AG. This also applies to the expert lecture by Dr. M. Zschaber (VMZ Sport) in the run-up to the event, which they had planned at their partner Arcotel John F.

After weighing up all possibilities and observing the current developments in the Coronavirus pandemic, they would like to give their invited guests at least planning security during these times. If it needed one last clue, it was the cancellation of the International Ambassador Conference of the Federal Foreign Office planned for the same day, which means that numerous top-class guests from international politics could not have been with them.

But the German Football Ambassador will of course continue their work! They will again award the awards in all three categories this year. This week they will announce the honorary award winners, and they expect to start online voting for the audience award next week. In what form and at what time they can hand over the awards, the board will advise in the coming weeks.

The German Football Ambassador ask for your understanding for this necessary decision and thank all members of the football ambassador family who remain loyal to them even in this eventful time!
