Bundesliga club Werder Bremen plans in the future with a kind of crisis clause for player contracts. “There are efforts to include such a clause to mitigate the financial risk after an unforeseen event,” said sports director Frank Baumann Weser courier: “I assume that we will include this in the contracts for all players.” Since Baumann does not assume that such a clause will be incorporated into the DFL’s model contracts, the Hanseatic authorities would have to negotiate the passage individually with each professional and his advisor. “We have to see if there is a uniform rule or differences,” he said. Werder had run into financial difficulties due to the Corona crisis and had announced that he would like to apply for loans from the KfW bank.
