Virtual Bundesliga to be included in the DFL statutes
The Virtual Bundesliga (VBL) is to be included as an additional competition in the league statues of the DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga. At Monday’s DFL Members Assembly, the clubs in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 passed a resolution to this effect, setting out the official staging of the competition for the title of “German eFootball Club Champion”. This step establishes the Virtual Bundesliga Club Championship as the eFootball competition of the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 and serves to advance its professionalism.
From the 2023-24 season, the aim is for all clubs in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 to take part in the Virtual Bundesliga Club Championship. TSG Hoffenheim have taken part in the VBL CC in the past two seasons.
