The 47-year-old has agreed terms with the DFL supervisory board and will now continue in his post until 2022. He first became chief executive of the DFL in 2005.

“With the challenges that lie ahead, the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 clubs will be able to continue relying on the proven and successful joint activities.”

Seifert added: “I am pleased to have the supervisory board’s trust and look forward to tackling the tasks awaiting me. Together with the clubs, committees and the DFL team, I will be furthering German professional football as a sports competition with a solid economic basis and great popularity in all parts of society.”
