A long-time journalist and politician, Reinhard Grindel has been involved in football administration since 2011, when he served as vice-president of the Lower Saxony regional association in his native Germany. Two years later he was named treasurer of the German Football Assocation (DFB) and was elected the association's 12th president in 2016. After studying law, Grindel embarked on a career in journalism in radio and television. He headed the ZDF studio in Brussels (Belgium) from 1999 to 2002, after which he became a member of the German federal parliament - a position he relinquished after his election as the DFB's president.
