Your new favorite team is playing in the Champions League right now


Recommended Posts

Union Berlin is currently playing its first Champions League group stage match against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. Big deal, right? Of course a team from Berlin would be in the Champions League.


Except they never even played top-flight football until 4 years ago!




Coolest fucking team ever. And they have an American on their roster (Aaronson)! Definitely worthy of your footy-related consideration.

When the club needed to renovate the grounds due to age related problems, most of the work was done by fans of the club who volunteered their time and skills due to the club not having enough funds to hire professionals. 

That’s mentioned in the video; they also held a blood drive, since in Germany it’s legal to be paid for giving blood. Literally bled for the team. Fuck the Stasi pigs.
