Hertha BSC is a club not only with a rich and colorful history but also has a number of accolades to justify them. Having had a roller coaster ride up until the early 1990s, it wasn’t until a large sum of money was invested in the youth team, that the club truly showed some exciting potential not only in Germany but in European competitions as well.

Prior to the Bundesliga, Hertha BSC Football Club was a phenomenal side which had a strong presence in every national competition and although they played the final of the German league for 6 consecutive years they only ended up winning the trophy twice in 1930 and 1931.To the club’s credit, they have also won the German second division competition once back in 1990 and have dozens of other regional trophies as well. The club have stood runners-up in the DFB-Pokal (German national cup) thrice but have never had a chance to lift the beautiful trophy. Hertha BSC have also been the winners of the European Inter-toto Cup 4 times which is also a great achievement.

All this success would never have been possible without a group of extraordinary players that played for the club through out it’s history. Pal Dardai is one such name and a player who has served the club for over a decade now with most caps for any player for them. He has played in a number of positions for Hertha BSC but has mainly played as a defensive midfielder. Michael Preetz represented this incredible German club for over 7 years in which he scored prolifically in which he scored a total of 93 goals. Other notable names who have played for Hertha BSC FC would have to include Dick Van Burik, Christian Fielder, Arne Friedrich and the list goes on and on.

One thing is for sure, that with the investment being put into the club to secure excellent talent, the day is not far when Hertha BSC fc would be rubbing shoulders right next to European giants like Bayern Munich FC, Manchester United and Barcelona football club.

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.
