The four German Champions League clubs promise 20 million euros for clubs that are in need because of the Corona crisis. The signal is important. Solidarity should continue to apply after the crisis.
SInd 20 million solidarity tax of the four German Champions League clubs a lot? Or are a good 1.25 percent of the annual turnover of more than 1.6 billion euros that Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen generate cumulatively, little?
The quartet, which benefited from the proceeds from the Champions League, set an example on Wednesday. It wants to provide 7.5 million euros of emergency aid to needy clubs in the first and second Bundesliga and to waive the combined 12.5 million euros in revenue from the outstanding national media revenues this season in favor of these clubs – if the season continues.
