SSV kitzingen received a rude awakening at its members’ meeting on friday evening. The club was honored with the highest award of the bavarian football association (BFV), the golden diamond, by the honorary district commissioner in the wurzburg match district, ludwig bauer.
Neither the sporting performance, nor a table position are a yardstick for the awarding of the prize. In fact, the association uses this seal of approval to honor clubs that demonstrate outstanding long-term performance in the areas of youth work, volunteering, prevention and mass sports, thus living up to the DFB’s motto: "fubball is more than 1:0, fubball is social responsibility – do justice. Out of ten criteria in each of the above areas, at least four criteria must be met in order to receive the golden diamond.

"Good restaurants get stars, and clubs that do something special are awarded the diamond", this is how bauer expressed it in his laudatory speech and praised the great voluntary commitment at SSV kitzingen. What in the economy the certification is, represents in a sports club the golden rod as a confirmation of the qualification reached by itself. Socially, the SSV is now certainly in the "diamond european league" and, according to the statutes of the BFV, will be able to make the leap into the "diamond champions league" in 2024 create.
