Hall of Fame of German Football

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hall of Fame of German football is the hall of fame of German football founded in 2018 . It was initiated by the German Football Museum, inspired by Manuel Neukirchner , the director of the German Football Museum.

Choice of the founding eleven

In November 2018, a jury of sports journalists selected the first 11 players and the first coach for the Hall of Fame as the founding eleven of the Hall of Fame . The 26 jury members each submitted a personal list of suggestions from which a shortlist of 26 players and three coaches from German football was created. The main selection criteria were outstanding performance in German national teams as well as in national and international club football. The prerequisite was that her career had ended at least five years ago. In 2019, the jury also selected a founding eleven women for the Hall of Fame.
