Leu Braunschweig

Definitely the forgotten cousin of the city leader Eintracht, Leu has been kicking around haplessly for years in the lower regions.

The club was founded in 1906 as Wacker 06 and 5 years later joined up with MTV Braunschweig. The soccer section was started in 1922 and was known as "Leu", until 1937, when they were integrated into MTV. In 1954 they seperated again.

In 1979, after the new club field was built, "HSC" was added to the club name. This was to more closely identify with the Heidberg district of the city.

Full Name Heidberger Sportclub Leu 06 Braunschweig e.V.

This became the permanent home after the facility was finished in 1978. From 1956-74, during the "glory" years, Leu played at the Humboldtstraße (capacity: 8,000). Then they played at Franz'sches Feld
