After the end of the women's football World Cup, the sports director of the Bundesliga VfL Wolfsburg, Ralf Kellermann, calls for investment and "far-reaching concepts" for German women's football. DFB and league are required, wrote the former master coach in the Kicker. "By this I mean, among other things, the coach education in the leagues as well as in the junior area, stricter admission criteria for the league and its consistent implementation, TV presence and marketing." At the World Cup, the German football women were eliminated in the quarterfinals against Sweden. As a result, the team had missed the Olympics participation in Tokyo in 2020. According to Kellermann, the World Cup has clearly shown that the German team is currently unable to keep up with the level of the Americans.

The national team but need a strong league and vice versa. The future DFB top must be clearly positioned to women's football.
