Founding Clubs of the DFB

The DFB (Deutscher Fußball-Bund or German Football Association) was formed 28 January 1900 in Leipzig. The commonly accepted number of founding clubs represented at the inaugural meeting is 86, but this number is uncertain. The vote held to establish the association was 64–22 in favour (86 votes). Some delegates present represented more than one club, but may have voted only once. Other delegates present did not carry their club's authority to cast a ballot.[1]
