The German Sport Federation ( DSB ) was the umbrella organization of the state sport federations and sports associations in Germany in the legal form of a registered association (e.V.). On May 20, 2006, the German Sports Association merged with the National Olympic Committee for Germany to form the German Olympic Sports Association (DOSB).

history

Historical development of German sports umbrella organizations and National Olympic Committees

The DSB was founded on December 10, 1950 in Hanover as the first democratic association covering the whole of sport in the Federal Republic of Germany, including West Berlin . The establishment was preceded by almost five years of discussion in which the interests of top-class and popular sports, civil and workers' sports as well as gymnastics and sports had to be brought to a common denominator. The first president of the DSB was Willi Daume (civil sport), his deputies were Heinrich Hünecke (workers ' sports ) and Oscar Drees (workers' sports ). Other members of the first presidium were Max Danz , Bernhard Baier , Gerhard Schlegel , Walter Wülfing , Paul Reinberg , Johannes Stoll , August Zeuner , Ottoheinz Ertl , Ludwig Wolker , Herbert Kunze , Heinz Lindner and Grete Nordhoff (1899–1976). General Manager, then renamed General Secretary of the DSB from 1954 to December 31, 1963 Guido von Mengden , from 1964 to 1989 Karlheinz Gieseler and from 1990 to 1994 Norbert Wolf .

In 1990 most of the sports associations represented in the German Gymnastics and Sports Federation of the GDR joined the DSB. With 27 million members, the DSB was the largest personal organization in Germany.

Member organizations of the DSB were the 16 state sports federations, 55 central associations and eleven sports associations with special tasks, six associations for science and education and two funding associations. The head office was in Frankfurt am Main .
