VfL Pinneberg

This club grew out of the post WW-II union of 3 long time sports associations. Spielverein Pinneberg started kicking the ball in 1908. TV Union Pinneberg started back in 1888, although the soccer section didn't start until 1910, and became independant as FC Union a year later. It changed it's name to FC Pinneberg in 1918. Freier Turn- und Schwimmverein was a worker's club affiliated with the ATSB, which started around 1899. In 1933 it was banned by the Nazis.

In 1945, Union, FC and FTSV members got together and formed VfL Pinneberg.

Pinneberg is one of the largest sports clubs, with some 6,000 members. It has established itself as one of the top Hamburg based amateur teams.
