The DFB fulfils its socio-political and sports policy responsibilities at international level through various activities.
The international work of the DFB is divided into two areas: on the one hand, the International Relations and Strategic Projects Unit strives to create knowledge and added value for German football and its partners through cooperation with other football associations worldwide and through strategic partnerships.
On the other hand, the DFB has been carrying out international, football-related CSR projects for more than half a century. Amongst others the DFB supports the German government in its sport-related activities in developing countries and emerging markets.
The departments are working together to promote the development of football worldwide.
