The Handball Sport Verein Hamburg eV is a sports club from Hamburg .


The association was founded in 1999 as handball club Luebeck founded and took over the Bundesliga license of VfL Bad Schwartau , with whom he and 2002 syndicate SG VfL Bad Schwartau Lübeck made. In 2002 this was dissolved and the association moved to Hamburg. The Bundesliga team there was initially operated by Omni Sport GmbH & Co. KG , in which Winfried Klimek held a 90 percent stake. Klimek was arrested in December 2004 and sentenced to five years in prison in August 2005 for fraud and breach of trust. The Omni Sport GmbH & Co. KG then had to file for bankruptcy and was replaced in summer 2005 by the HSV Handball Betriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG .

After Klimek left, Andreas Rudolph became the most important partner. He held a 74.9 percent stake in HSV Handball Betriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG and was president of the club from 2005 to 2011 and from 2013 to 2014. According to his own statements, he invested 50 million euros by December 2015. On May 8, 2014, he announced his resignation from the presidency, which threatened immediate bankruptcy due to the lack of financial support. On May 15, 2014, the club did not receive a license from the Handball Bundesliga (HBL) for the 2014/15 season and lodged an appeal against this decision, which was rejected by the HBL on June 3, 2014. On June 11, 2014 the Presidium decided to have this decision examined by the arbitral tribunal; In addition, the license for the 3rd division was applied for as a precaution . On June 25, 2014, the arbitral tribunal upheld the Hamburg's objection and granted the club a license for the coming season, subject to certain conditions. These conditions were met on July 1, 2014.

After the financial situation could not be improved in the following year and a half, the managing director Christian Fitzek filed for insolvency for HSV Handball Betriebsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG at the Hamburg district court on December 16, 2015 . The bankruptcy proceedings were opened on January 15, 2016. On January 20, 2016, the HBL licensing commission subsequently revoked the club's license for the 2015/16 season. When the license was granted, Andreas Rudolph made a declaration of commitment to secure liquidity gaps in the amount of 2.5 million euros, but restricted this in an additional agreement. This agreement was withheld from the licensing commission. The club was not allowed to apply for a license to play in the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga for the 2016/17 season due to the license withdrawal. On January 25, 2016, the insolvency administrator withdrew the team from playing in the handball Bundesliga with immediate effect.

Relationship to Hamburger SV

Former logo

A cooperation agreement was signed with Hamburger SV in 2002 to allow use of its logo. After the first team of Hamburger SV was promoted to the Hamburg Oberliga in 2007, they formed a syndicate with the Handball Sport Verein Hamburg and took on as SG HSV Handball. For the 2008/09 season, the syndicate was expanded to include the Hamburger SV youth teams. After the 2015/16 season, the cooperation was ended and the Hamburger SV logo was removed from the logo. Hamburger SV also forbade the Hamburg handball sports club to use the abbreviation HSV.
