German authorities search soccer federation offices

Authorities searched the offices of the German soccer federation Tuesday and confiscated documents in connection with an investigation by the country's cartel office.
The federation (DFB) said it had "nothing to hide" and was considering legal moves to determine whether Tuesday's raid had been justified.
Authorities also searched the offices of the German soccer league (DFL), which runs the Bundesliga.
The raid was part of an investigation based on media reports nearly a year ago, claiming the DFB and DFL had attempted to shut out competition in the marketing sector.
