Beckenbauer and other German officials, who participated in the organization of the 2006 World Cup, were subjected to an ethical investigation by the 2016 World Federation.
Cases against former members of the FIFA executive board Theo Zwanziger and Horst Schmidt have also been closed due to obsolescence.
The case was conducted due to suspicious money transactions between the organizers of the World Cup, FIFA members and Qatari football official Mohamed Bin Hamam.
In particular, Beckenbauer was charged with giving a bribe of 10 million Swiss francs to Mohamed Bin Hamam in 2002, the FIFA ethics court announced.
The Swiss federal court also conducted an investigation into this case, but it was also terminated in April last year due to the statute of limitations.
