* Transfer of €6.7m to Fifa from organising committee under investigation
* ‘Prosecutors in Frankfurt investigating suspicion of serious tax evasion’

German police have raided the Frankfurt headquarters of Germany’s football association, the DFB, and searched the private homes of officials on suspicion of tax evasion linked to the awarding of the 2006 World Cup.

Documents and hard drives were seized from the DFB’s headquarters in Frankfurt, according to the German news agency DPA, which said 50 officers were involved.

“Prosecutors in Frankfurt have opened investigations on suspicion of serious tax evasion linked to the awarding of the football championship in 2006 and the transfer of €6.7m of the organising committee for the German Football Association (DFB) to the Fifa football association,” said prosecutors in a statement. They said they suspected the association of failing to register the payment in tax returns.

Bild had reported that the homes of the DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach and of the former president Theo Zwanziger had been raided. The DFB was not available for comment after several attempts by Reuters.

even if was something from 100 years ago police would still investigate that kind of evasion anyway isn't a surprise that football/soccer (depends if you're from usa or not) makes such money that somebody forgets to report them for paying the relative tax
