The DFB has today announced changes to the referees for the top two divisions for next season. In the Bundesliga, Dr Robert Kampka has been dropped to the 2. Bundesliga, to be replaced by 29 year-old Florian Badstübner from Windsbach in Bavaria, seen twice in the course of the season and creating a very good impression the second time.

It has been decided to reduce the 2. Bundesliga list to 16: to this effect Bendikt Kempkes, Robert Kempter (after a dozen years at that level) and Rene Rohde have become Bundesliga Specialist Assistants, along with Philipp Hüwe. Tobias Christ and Holger Henschel have ended their careers as Assistants. The aptly named Johann Pfeifer will no longer be aptly named, having moved from the 2. Bundesliga referees list to the VAR room at that level. Two 2. Bundesliga referees, Dr Matthias Jöllenbeck (33) and Tobias Reichel (34) have been selected for a talent group - not promoted, but given matches in the top division. Similarly two 3. Liga officials will have the opportunity to handle some 2. Bundesliga games - Florian Lechner (29) and, much to JCFC's pleasure, Patrick Hanslbauer (29).

It is not yet known whether there will be changes to the 3. Liga list.
