Football in Germany
The Mannschaft needs no introduction - three-time winners of the FIFA World Cup, the epitome of world football, whose consistency at the highest level led former English international Gary Lineker to famously remark: "Football is a simple game: 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans win."
The first Goal project
The German Football Association, one of the few associations not to have been a beneficiary of the Goal Programme in its first ten years in existence, submitted a project for approval to the Goal Bureau on 1 December 2009 for the acquisition of an IT system aimed at implementing an effective, global online communications strategy. The principle behind the system is to enable online management of relations with all stakeholders in German football, be it regional associations, clubs, media, supporters, etc.
