Indeed the Romans are supposed to have already played a kind of handball; and even from the Middle Ages, one knows embodiments of teams that threw a colourful cloth pouch back and forth. However, only in the past century did the sport become truly popular; and in Berlin, only first through the “Füchse” (foxes), the professional handball division of the sports club “Reinickendorfer Füchse”, who since the 2007-2008 season are playing in the 1. Liga.
The Berlin Füchse is therefore still quite a young club, which however already has many German and international National players in its squad. A large fan club deafeningly supports the team with timpani and trumpets at its home and away games. The home playing ground is the Max Schmeling Hall in Prenzlauer Berg. And when the Füchse run up in their green jerseys—the hunt 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 foxes are of course also increasingly travelling by train. You can find out more about this in the sustainability report on the Foxes' website.
