German Labor Law


HSV’s attacker Jann-Fiete Arp is, no doubt, a new star of German football, but because of his age (17) a Hamburg club has major problems with the German law.

Namely, according to Article 14 of the German Labor Law, minors must not work before 6 am and after 20 pm.

Each round of the Bundesliga opens with a game on Friday at 20:30, and each of the 18 teams plays at least once in that term.

It was HSV that just came in on that date, and this Friday
to visit the Schwarzwald-Stadion in Freiburg, and coach Merkus Gisdol from the Hamburg team can not count on the Arpa.

HSV leaders have asked the German authorities a special permit for the Arpa for meetings against Freiburg this Friday and December 15 against Gladbach.

HSV will be hoping to approve Arp’s performance in these two terms, and the young striker will be 18 years old on January 6 next year and will not be banned from performing.

In the ranks of the HSV, they are optimistic, since six years ago Schalke was granted permission for the then younger Julian Draxler.

Arp this season in the HSV jersey in the Bundesliga played five times with two goals scored.
