Football in Germany: Hertha BSC football club profile

Based in Berlin Germany, Hertha BSC football club is one of the founding members of the German Football Association. The club was formed in 1892 in Leipzig and has a rich history to itself.

The club currently play in the German second division and have historically been known for performing really well through out their time on the pitch. They play their home games at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin which has a capacity or around 75000 people. The home kits for Hertha BSC FC are white and blue and the away kits are normally red and black in color. They happen to be one of the first teams to have beaten Southend United FC from England in 1910, in an era when the English clubs dominated the world of football.

Time and again the club felt the heat of poor financial situations and was at times not in the position to buy the sort of talent that would take them really to the top. Although they were one of the first sides to have played in the inaugural Bundesliga in 1963 and performed relatively well, they were demoted for the next season because they were found guilty of bribing the players to play for them. In recent times Hertha BSC FC have been regulars in the Bundesliga and have also managed to play not only in the UEFA Cup but also in the UEFA Champions league, which without a doubt is one of the biggest achievements for any club.
