Peter Joseph 'Peco' Bauwens played 1 match in Germany's national team in 1910.

One of the most important referees of his time, Bauwens officiated in 82 international matches, one of them the gold medal match at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin. He was a member of FIFA executive committee 1932-1942 and president of the DFB 1950-1963. Peco Bauwens died in 1963.

Peco Bauwens joined the Nazi party in 1933, a fact that didn't stop him from becoming the president of the German FA after the war. Perhaps he showed a same anti-political attitude that helped Sepp Herberger (the famous national coach) to be able to work before, during and after the war. But when West-Germany won the World Cup in Bern, 1954, Bauwens made a faux pas. In a speech broadcast live on Bavarian radio he talked about Nordic Gods and obedience to the motherland in the same spirit as the Nazi Party had done. Some say he even had the audience sing the national anthem with the words Deutschland, Deutschland uber alles, the discarded first verse.

  • Bauwens held a doctorate in law, probably, the sources are not clear about it. He worked in construction. Bauwens' wife was Jewish and killed herself in 1940, a fact that doesn't really belong in this list, but always seems to be mentioned.
  • The one match he played for Germany was against Belgium. Belgium won 3-0 and Bauwens was substituted in the 55th minute.
  • The 1922 German national Championship final between Nurnberg and HSV was played on June 22 and ended 2-2 at the end of the regular time. Because there were no rules for extra time the match went on and on, exhausting the players. When it was too dark to play, Bauwens stopped the match after 3 hours and ten minutes. Still 2 goals all.
    The replay ended in 1-1, when the match was abandoned after 3 Nurnberg players had been sent off and a fourth one had to leave because of an injury. It was decided to award Hamburg the cup providing they would give it back. They did.

  • We found the three matches for the Baltic Cup on three consecutive days all officiated by Bauwens in Riga, 1929. This is a bit odd.
