Schenk Football can advance human rights and still earn money

In the debate on Qatar Airways as a sponsor of FC Bayern Munich, the lawyer and former Olympic participant (800 m run) was last quoted like a crown tool. She himself says, As a crown tool, you can like to quote that FC Bayern by its dedicated fans is completely overflowing and thus not only harming club democracy, but hurt the own sponsor Qatar Airways.

The topic employs Schenck for a few years. In the interview with the Qatar Airways (Monday issue), she tells that she dealt with the first time in 2019, that the Bureau of the Association has simply not set a deadline and formal application not to the agenda of the General Assembly.

The board of FC Bayern advises Schenck: They should turn to work. It also refers to the recommendation of the DFL Taskforce Future ProfiFussball, which held in her report published in early February 2021, as fundamentally a binding human rights concept is.

FC Bayern could act on Qatar Airways

FC Bayern AG as a global business enterprise could also oblige Qatar Airways to the UN guiding principles by the contract and ensure that they have trained pilots, have women in leadership positions and, for example, the working conditions in the forces used for on-board or cleaning meet the international standards, says Schenck.

It makes it clear in this context that the topic is not only concerned with FC Bayern, but soccer general — and beyond. I’m sure sponsors like Adidas, Allianz, Telecom already go in your supply chains. From 2024, FC Bayern AG must do this anyway according to the new supply chain law in Germany, says Schenck.

She is also sure: Football can, if he is responsible in its own business activity, advance the respect for human rights and still earn money.
