Weekend after weekend, these 69 referees from the steigerwald group are on the pitch, out of "love for soccer", to carry out this honorary office.

Fifa:third transfer window possible

So far, there are two phases in which players are allowed to transfer: one between seasons, which may not last longer than twelve weeks, and one in the middle of the season, which may not last longer than four weeks. "What we have seen now in the crisis is that associations are opening an additional, third transfer window," james kitching, FIFA director of football regulatory, told ARD’s "sportschau" about the new recommendations. "We were flexible about that, if the 16 weeks total time is not exceeded."

FIFA had recently issued various recommendations and guidelines regarding transfers and contracts in the coronavirus crisis. In german mannerfubball, two so-called registration periods for transfers have been planned so far: from 1. July to 31. August 2020 as well as from 2. January to 1. February 2021. Should the currently interrupted season last longer than planned, the transfer periods could be rescheduled.

The world governing body had also called for professional players’ contracts to be adjusted to reflect the actual course of their currently interrupted playing time. Expiring contracts can be extended until the season is over. Player changes planned for the summer are also to be completed only afterwards. FIFA cannot, however, make any binding stipulations in these matters. "We have to recognize that national labor law and the autonomy of clubs and players always take priority," kitching said.

Djk ladies just miss sensation

With their heads held high, but empty-handed, the bundesliga women’s basketball team of DJK brose bamberg returned from their first play-off quarter-final game in wasserburg, germany. With the last throw, the team of trainer steffen dauer had the chance to force the clear favorite into the verlangerung, but ultimately had to admit defeat with 68:71 (38:27) narrowly. The second duel of the "best-of-three-series takes place on friday (8 pm) in bamberg.

Then, so coach steffen dauer assured despite the first disappointment about the defeat "we will try everything to make up the series in our own hall with the support of our fans in the back". Not much was missing, and the bambergerinnen had gone with 1:0 in the lead. "In the end it was an attack", stated dauer "but the last throw has unfortunately not fallen. The only thing that was not right today was the result. We fully challenged the opponent for 40 minutes, but unfortunately drew the short straw." It was not necessarily expected that the closest final result in the opening quarterfinal would come from the duel between the first and last teams in the main round. The wasserburg audience was correspondingly restrained in its reaction to the performance of the prominent hosts, who had an outstanding emma cannon (34 points/21 rebounds) under the basket to thank in particular for the fact that they were able to pull their heads out of the noose in the second half.

The first 20 minutes clearly belonged to the DJK ladies, who took the lead after three threes of their captain jessica miller (9:6) and maintained it until the end of the third quarter. With the self-confidence from five wins in a row in attack and high intensity in defense, the up-and-coming team around the strong janae young (12 points and 10 rebounds in the first half) always kept the championship favorites at bay and built up a double-digit lead (38:27) by the break.

Jan raber hits best, helmut schweikl tricks best

A 96.3-piece placed jan raber ahead of his friend and current first knight fabian engelhardt, who shot a 99.0-piece. "Were held the discs side by side", jan laughs "the difference would probably not be visible to the naked eye".

Nevertheless, he was naturally pleased on saturday at the king proclamation celebration in the guard house uehlfeld. He has also succeeded in repeating his success of the previous year.

Fabian is this year already for the third time in a row second place and thus first knight. "It’s a pity it’s not like trophies. You can keep it" he joked. Third best and so second knight was vanessa ozanic with a 374,6-divider.

Fit for the 2021 olympics: between a new beginning and the end of a dream

But only training. Again. Alone, no spectators, no cheering, no medals, only drudgery. Day by day for the rough day.

Fur olympia, the longing goal of almost all athletes. From saturday they wanted to compete for gold, silver or bronze in tokyo. Being there when the best of the best compete. Only training instead.

For some, it is "incredibly hard to be able to develop and call up the great level that they have trained for, especially in endurance sports, again in the following year," emphasizes ulf tippelt, head of the institute for applied training science in leipzig.
