Football in germany: Profile of Hannover 96 football club

Nicknamed ‘Die Roten’ (The Reds), Hannover 96 is a football club that plays in the German Bundesliga. Founded back in 1896, the club is distinct in their Red and White home kit although, originally, black-white-green were colors associated with the club.

The club was resolved during the world war 2 like most of the football clubs all across Europe but was reassembled in August 1945. Hannover 96 football club are not necessarily known for their trophies but the club has a rich history to show. They have won an odd trophy here and there but mostly they have been fighting relegation and financial problems. Had it not been for a decent run for the club post 1990, the club would have very well gone into administration. It was their victory in the DFB-Pokal tournament that helped Hannover 96 FC get their finances straight and became the first lower division side to win this tournament. The club then got relegated to the third division which was probably the worst period in the club’s history. They however recruited some fresh talent which took the club from strength to strength and eventually Hannover 96 football club got back into Bundesliga with the big boys.

Having signed a new technical director and a group of talented footballers, the future promises to be bright for Hannover 96 and it’s fans.
