The verdict of the state data protection officer on the data affair at VfB Stuttgart will be made this week. But there is still one point of contention within the club.
The end of an affair that has shaken VfB Stuttgart to its foundations in recent months is imminent. After several law firms have investigated and legally assessed the data scandal, after the personal consequences within the association have already been drawn, the last act is reserved for the state data protection officer.
Probably in the middle of this week Stefan Brink will give his verdict and announce the amount of the fine. The fine is likely to be between 300,000 and 400,000 euros, which would then also close the case from the authorities.
After this, it is planned that CEO Thomas Hitzlsperger and President Claus Vogt will draw the final line at a joint press conference – but until then there is another point of contention out of the way: the question of the form in which the final reports for Data affair must be made available to VfB members.
