DENIC allows letter "ß"
The German letter "ß" will be allowed for .de domains. Owners of .de domains containing the letters "ss" (not what you think :p - this is the ASCII replacement of ß) will have grandfathering rights. So the chances of getting Fußball.de are pretty slim unfortunately.
As far as I remember it was disallowed because there was no uppercase version of it. So it was invented:
