"Die Mannschaft" foundation
Our guiding principles
We believe that our privileged position comes with a special responsibility to champion those less fortunate who need our help. We enjoy so many people’s support on the field that we hope to do the same for them off it. The world can be a good place if we give our all to make it that way – and if we all play our part.
This is a long-term commitment for us – the players who currently wear the national colors and those who come after us. Established in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our foundation is an umbrella organisation for our social activities and a beacon for diversity in the team today and tomorrow. Our foundation is devoted to Article 25 of the Universal Human Rights Declaration, which grants every human being the right to a decent standard of living, and we work to make that a reality.
