Füchse Berlin

The hunt is off

The fans go wild in the Fuchsbau when the Füchse Berlin run onto the pitch

Even the Romans are said to have played a kind of handball, and depictions of teams throwing a colourful cloth bag back and forth are also known from the Middle Ages. But the sport only really became popular in the last century. Today's handball is actually a Berlin invention. The favourites in Berlin are the Füchse, the professional handball section of the Reinickendorfer Füchse sports club, who have been playing in the first Bundesliga since the 2007-2008 season.

Having won the European Cup, the Super Globe and Olympic bronze in 2016, the Füchse have already made history in the sports city of Berlin. A large fan club supports the team loudly with drums and trumpets at its home and away games. The Max-Schmeling-Halle in Prenzlauer Berg is the home venue - the FUCHSBAU. And when the Füchse wear their green jerseys, the wild chase can begin.

The Berlin Füchse are climate neutral

In keeping with their green jerseys, the Berlin Füchse are also doing something for the environment and the climate. They have been officially climate-neutral since the summer of 2022. To this end, for example, green electricity is being pushed in all halls, as was already the case in the Max Schmeling Halle, which was awarded the Green Globe sustainability certification, and of course the temperature is also being reduced, solar panels have been installed and the lighting has been switched to LED. The vehicle fleet is gradually being converted to electric drive and the Füchse are of course also increasingly travelling by train. You can find out more about this in the sustainability report on the website of the Füchse.
