The German football authorities have labelled as "unbelievable" raids by the country´s office of fair trading as part of an investigation into alleged anti-competitive practices.

The Bundeskartellamt seized several items to be used in an investigation into the German Football Association (DFB) and German Football League (DFL), who are suspected of creating a working group to limit competition between themselves and clubs over sponsorship.

Both the DFB and the DFL were quick to deny any wrongdoing, releasing statements labelling Tuesday´s raids "out of proportion".
