The Hamburg Huskies (formerly Hamburg Wild Huskies and Hamburg Eagles ) are an American football team from Hamburg .

The Huskies played in the GFL from 2015 to 2018 and will compete in GFL 2 in the 2019 season .


The club was founded in 1994 under the name "Hamburg Wild Huskies" by the four active players Marco Lotichius, Florian Raffel, Martin Sieg and Tobias Stancke. The first men's team was formed from the Gray Devils (the 2nd team of the Hamburg Blue Devils) and the Hamburg Patriots. As a division of the Eidelstedt sports club, the Hamburg Wild Huskies began to take part in organized league games. In 2007 the sponsoring association was changed and the Harvestehuder Tennis and Hockey Club (HTHC) started under the name "HTHC Hamburg Eagles". It was not until 2009 that the club was renamed “Hamburg Huskies”.

In October 2014, the Hamburg Huskies separated from the HTHC and have since operated as an independent association under the name “Hamburg Huskies American Sports e. V. "

The teams

The club has four youth teams in three age groups, the Hamburg Young Huskies (U19) , the U19 Prospects , the Hamburg Rookie Huskies (U16) and the Hamburg Little Huskies (U13) .

The first men's team played for many years in the upper third of the northern group of the second division (GFL2), and in 2014 it achieved the greatest sporting success in the club's history with promotion to the Bundesliga ( GFL ). With a record of 5 wins and 7 defeats, the club managed to qualify for the play-offs as fourth in the GFL Nord in the first year . At the end of the 2016 season, the team finished 6th with a record of 4:10 wins and missed the play-offs. In the 2017 season, the team was led by Head Coach Sean Embree . The American came from Denver and worked as an assistant coach at the Denver Broncos . In 2016 he coached the team from Vukovi Beograd ( Serbia ) and was voted “Coach of the Year” there.

At the end of the 2017 season, Anthony Rouzier, who previously held the position of Defensive Coordinator , took over the position of Head Coach. After four wins in a row, the club reached 6th place in the table in the GFL North (balance 4:10).

In the 2018 season, however, the team finished last with 14 defeats from 14 games and failed in the subsequent relegation to the champions of GFL2 Nord , the Düsseldorf Panthers . This meant that the Hamburg Huskies had to compete in the GFL2 again in the 2019 season.

A second men's team, the Hamburg Huskies II , competes in the top division.
