DOSB congratulates the DFB team - Looking forward to Rio 2016

The German Olympic Sports Federation has congratulated the DFB team for the fourth title in the history of FIFA World Cup.

"All German sports fans are full of pride and congratulate this impressive played national football team for the fourth world title. It was the expected heart-stopping finale and the most exciting 0-0 after 90 minutes I've ever experienced, "President Alfons Hörmann said in Rio de Janeiro. With director general Michael Vesper he flew to Rio at the invitation of the German Football Association (DFB) to root live for the “DFB-Elf” at the Maracana Stadium.

Vesper, who, as the Director-General, is i. a. responsible for encouraging the socio-political significance of this sport, said: "The World Cup in Brazil and today’s victory of the national football team have increased our anticipation for the 2016 Olympic Games once again. The German team has been celebrated by the locals in an impressive way, even though they had defeated the Brazilian team in the semifinals. The country was an outstanding World Cup host and we can hardly wait to return to Rio in two years and experience the Olympic Games here in the city and here in this stadium. Then a German Olympic team will step up and hopefully will be as successful as the German national football team." At the scene of the German World Cup victory, the Games of the XXXI. Olympics will be opened on August 5, 2016.

The Felix Schoeller Group is also looking forward to Rio 2016 and will support the German Olympic team, as it’s done in Sochi, as premium paper-partner. You get a glimpse of how we contributed as an Olympic co-partner on site in Sochi, with our video.
