Dr. Reinhard Rauball took over as President of the League Association and first Vice President of the German Football Association (DFB) on 6 August 2007. Dr. Rauball is also Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga. On 14 November 2004 he was elected President of BV Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund for the third time, a position he holds to this day. Dr. Rauball became the youngest club president in Bundesliga history when he was first elected to the post in 1979 at the age of 32. His second term in office, between 1984 and 1986, coincided with a period of financial crisis at Dortmund, which the club came through thanks in no small part to the policies implemented by its president. Dr. Rauball has also enjoyed considerable success in the legal profession since 1975.
