VfB advisory board: Claus Vogt sole presidential candidate - football

A bang in the power struggle: As the advisory board of VfB Stuttgart announced on Sunday, the incumbent President Claus Vogt will be the sole candidate for president.

Unexpected turning point at the traditional Swabian club: the VfB Stuttgart advisory board nominated current President Claus Vogt as a candidate for the upcoming presidential election in a session on Sunday. In a written statement it was said that the aim of the advisory board had always been to be able to present two suitable candidates to the members at the general assembly. For this reason, several conversations with other people have been held in the past few weeks.

“From the group of persons eligible for a majority, however, there was no willingness to run against the incumbent, so that Claus Vogt will now run as the sole candidate for the office of president for the next four years.”

 The  further applicant Volker Zeh is therefore not available for election due to the decision of the advisory board. At the same time, the advisory board appealed to the members to attend the general assembly planned for March 28th and to cast their votes. VfB is facing enormous challenges that can only be overcome together.

 The  chairman Wolf-Dietrich Erhard announced at the end of the meeting that he would suspend his mandate with “immediate effect”, the club announced. “Even if I have nothing to do with the data protection affair personally, with my decision I would like to help ensure that a new start is possible,” said Erhard. Claudia Maintok, Vice Chairwoman of the Advisory Board, and James Bührer resigned from their offices for personal reasons before the actual meeting.

As the supervisory board of VfB Stuttgart 1893 AG announced, it decided in an extraordinary meeting on Saturday to dismiss the board of directors for marketing and sales and the board of finance with immediate effect.

Quarrel and unrest in the club for weeks

It has been simmering behind the scenes of the club for weeks. Fines proceedings had been opened against VfB on suspicion of betrayal of secrets. On Friday the presidium decided against the will of President Vogt that the general meeting should take place on March 28th and in digital form. In addition, Hitzlsperger had sharply criticized Vogt at the end of last year and announced a campaign candidate for the presidency. © www.de24.news

 The  ex-international later apologized for his choice of words and withdrew his candidacy.
