HSG Humboldt-Uni Berlin


This famed club was founded in 1949, as part of the Humboldt University sports department. After German re-unification, it became an independant club. Currently there are two squads battling in the Berlin Kreisliga A, and a couple of oldies teams.

This is absolutely a must visit if you are in Berlin, and you will probably have a lot more fun then any other game in the city.

Supporters The players all have wives and girlfriends, or perhaps both!
Friends SV Blau-Gelb Berlin, Hansa Rostock and 1.FC Union Berlin.
Foes Don't know. Logically, it would be west Berlin's Freie-Universität, but HSG would probably kick their ass so severely, FU would give up soccer and probably go off for another silly protest. The other "enemy" is Bayern Muenchen, which is probably afraid to take on HSG!
Heroes Rugged defender Thomas Anders started soccer on the web by making the first German soccer site in 1994!

Pub Grub Bei Karin.
The Net One of the best soccer web sites around :), www2.hu-berlin.de/fussball . This is the oldest soccer web page in the former GDR, and perhaps one of the very first official in German, period. You often get first hand accounts from players of their latest defeat, err, victory. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated since 2003. Perhaps the webmaster finally graduated and got a real job. Actually, a new official page, www.ssg-humboldt.de has popped up. But it's just that, a single page...(2007)
