BVB chief executive officer Hans-Joachim Watzke made the following comments regarding the decision on the distribution of TV money:

''The DFL executive committee's decision regarding the distribution of TV money represents a difficult compromise for the top clubs. However, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and for reasons of solidarity, it proved an unavoidable and thus correct decision. Throughout the entire process, the vast majority of clubs in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 demonstrated a very cooperative and fair attitude. My thanks go to the DFL executive committee, which proved more than up to the difficult task of acting a mediator between the clubs and their different interests.''
