The Kiel Sports Association Holstein from 1900 e. V. ( KSV Holstein for short or Kieler SV Holstein ), commonly known as Holstein Kiel , is a registered sports club from the Schleswig-Holstein state capital of Kiel with around 3,000 members . The club is known nationwide primarily for its football department, whose first team belonged to the top German division until the introduction of the Bundesliga in 1963. The greatest successes in the club's history are winning the German championship1912 and two runners-up championships in 1910 and 1930.

The women's soccer team has existed since 2004 and, after a few years in the 2nd Bundesliga, has played in the Regionalliga Nord since 2016 .

Founding history

Predecessor club Kiel Football Club Holstein from 1902 (FC Holstein Kiel)

FC Holstein from 1902

The Kiel Football Club Holstein from 1902 ( FC Holstein Kiel for short ) was founded on May 4, 1902 by the students Friedrich Brügmann, Walter Duden and Hans Gosch of the Oberrealschule 1 (today Hebbelschule ). The place of foundation was a gazebo on Knooper Weg. A short time later, other students and friends from the other schools in Kiel joined the club and seven months after it was founded, the first encounter in the club's history took place against the second team from the later merger partner 1. Kiel Football Club of 1900 (4-0). From the beginning, the former school group was the dominant club in Kiel and developed into one of the strongest football clubs in Germany within a few years. Due to the very young age of the players and the associated lack of experience in administrative areas, there are hardly any written records of the first few years of club life. Since in the early years all the players were without exception schoolchildren and were not tied up in their jobs, they could, to the displeasure of their parents, devote their free time to the then ridiculed football lolling around. For many years the I. Crew remained firmly together, at least for the most part, without disturbance. The pillars of the active players from the beginning until the war years were the Werner brothers ( Friedrich Werner , Adolf Werner & August Werner ), Fick brothers ( Willi Fick , Hans Fick & Hugo Fick ), Georg Krogmann , Karl Rempka , Carl Lafferenz , to which later Hans Reese , Ernst Möller , Alfred Plambeck , Wilhelm Tim and Hans Dehning from the youth team were added.

In the further course of the club's history, the first renaming took place in 1908 as the Holstein football club from 1902 (short: FV Holstein Kiel) and the second in 1914 through the integration of the athletics and hockey divisions to the Holstein sports club from 1902 (short: SV Holstein Kiel) .

Merger partner Kiel football club from 1900 (KFV from 1900)

KFV from 1900

The origin of the Kieler football club from 1900 (short: KFV von 1900) stands next to the steadily increasing enthusiasm for football in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century ( see beginnings in German football ) in connection with two students from southern Germany (names unknown), who had joined the Kiel Men's Gymnastics Club of 1844 (KMTV for short) in February 1899 and introduced football in Kiel. At the beginning of 1900 Arthur Beier , another football-loving South German who had played for FC Phönix , a forerunner of Karlsruher SC , moved to the Kiel Fjord . Under his leadership, the football department of KMTV was established in 1844. On October 7, 1900 Arthur Beier and eight other members (Andrae, Beiler, Blaschke, Hudemann, Leuenhagen, Niederehe, Roland and Stange) of the Kiel men's gymnastics club went to Lübeck, in order to play a soccer game against a team from the Lübeck gymnastics association without the consent of the Kiel Turnrat . This event signifies the actual founding of the KFV in 1900 and thus the birth of football in Kiel. The game on the Lübeck Burgfeld ended 1-0 for Kiel. The goal scorer was Georg P. Blaschke , who worked his way up to one of the leading figures and football officials in the pioneering days of German football and was therefore made an honorary member of the German Football Association . The first official meeting of the club and thus the first on Kiel soil took place on December 2nd, 1900 and ended with a 0: 4 defeat against Altona 93 .

The establishment of the later merger partner Kiel Football Club Holstein in 1902 prompted the club to rename itself to 1. KFV von 1900 at the end of August 1902. The renaming wanted to make it clear that it was the first football club in Kiel. A month earlier, some young players had left the 1. KFV of 1900 and founded FC Kilia Kiel on July 23, 1902 . Due to the separation of a large number of players from FC Kilia Kiel, the club lost its athletic performance. The football sport in Kiel, however, benefited from the splintering to the extent that strong local opponents were created and clubs from Hamburg and other distant parts of Germany no longer had to be invited to games. Another reason for the decreasing strength and importance of the club was that football enthusiast Arthur Beier returned to his southern German homeland in 1902.

The reason why the club did not set the tone in Kiel in spite of its pioneering position and which increasingly fell behind in the period before the First World War lies in the splitting off and removal of players . Later the club concentrated more on athletics and from 1909 was considered one of the leading athletics clubs in Northern Germany.


Family tree of the Kiel Sports Association Holstein from 1900 e. V.

On June 7, 1917, the members of the SV Holstein from 1902 and the 1. KFV from 1900 met in the Zentral-Hotel, the clubhouse of the 1st KFV from 1900, and passed the following resolution with one abstention: “The resolutions of the both clubs through their merger under the name Kieler Sportvereinigung Holstein von 1900 e. V. (short: Holstein Kiel or KSV Holstein) are approved. "

The main initiator of the merger was next to the later President Ernst Föge, the always committed Kiel football pioneer and 1st KFV co-founder Georg P. Blaschke, who had been pursuing the vision of establishing a permanently competitive club in Kiel since 1909. Another, not insignificant reason for the merger was the immense weakening of the clubs due to the increasing hardship in the third year of the First World War.

The clearly fewer members 1. KFV from 1900 joined the successful SV Holstein Kiel from 1902 and became completely absorbed in it, which is not only recognizable in the current name Holstein Kiel. The Holstein-Platz (today Holstein Stadium) built by Holstein in 1911 was chosen as the venue and the KSV Holstein costume also corresponded to Holstein's blue-white-red. The 1. KFV renounced the venue built in 1914 as well as the club colors black and green and its club crest. A holdover of the 1. KFV was the reference to its founding date in the club statutes, which is common practice in football after club mergers (see for example Hamburger SV or VfB Stuttgart ).

The official founding date of KSV Holstein is October 7, 1900. The association has had its current name since June 7, 1917. The name of the association is derived from the southern part of Holstein in what was then the Prussian province of Schleswig-Holstein .

Club colors and club crest

Blue-white-red costume with club coat of arms 1957

From the beginning, the club colors were Holstein blue, white and red, which correspond to the Schleswig-Holstein national colors . For the first few years Holstein played in striped blue-white-red shirts and from 1906 in white shirts with blue-white-red sashes. In 1910 they wore blue jerseys with a white H on the left side of the chest, black breeches and black stockings. Since 1911 at the latest, people have been wearing the traditional costume that is still valid today: blue shirts, white trousers and red socks.

The coat of arms of Holstein Kiel, which was designed in March 1919, is a merger of the two coats of arms of the previous clubs and was accepted by the club members on April 9, 1919. It has been on the jerseys since 1921 and has not changed significantly from the basic structure ( Kiel coat of arms , color, shape and lettering) since then. From 1910 to 1917 a plain white H (for Holstein) was worn on the jersey. This H was used on the shirt in a white outlined circle with a dark background from 1917 to 1921. Holstein had a round coat of arms with the lettering in blue letters: FV Holstein v. 1902 EV Kiel . In the center of the logo was a white H, red F, and V, and the background was blue. The logo of the merger partner 1. KFV from 1900 was the Kiel city coat of arms and its club colors black and green, costume: black trousers, white shirt and Kiel city coat of arms on the chest.

Holstein Kiel celebrated the first and greatest successes in the club's history in the first half of the 20th century. Game operations in Kiel were organized for the first time in 1903 with the establishment of the Kieler Ballspielvereine (VKB). In the early years of German football, it was not uncommon for many associations ( see German Football Associations 1890–1933 ) to be founded and then disbanded. Under pressure from the DFB and its regional associations, the seven football associations from Hamburg-Altona, Bremen, Kiel, Hanover, the Duchy of Braunschweig, Mecklenburg and Unterweser merged to form the North German Football Association (NFV) on April 15, 1905 . The respective NFV district champions (nine districts in 1907) played for the first time from 1906 for the NFV championship, the winners of which qualified for the German championship finals. Holstein was always district champion in the Holstein / Lübeck district and failed from 1906 to 1908 in the semi-finals of the North German championship at Victoria Hamburg and in 1909 at Eintracht Braunschweig .

In 1910 they won the North German championship for the first time with a 7-1 win against Werder Bremen and thus qualified for the first time for the German championship finals. When they participated for the first time, they reached the final and played on May 15, 1910 in Cologne's Weidenpescher Park against the top club at the time, Karlsruher FV , which had five national players in its ranks. In the final, the team was defeated 0: 1 a. V. and became German runner-up.

In 1911 , the storks defended the NFV championship with a 6: 1 in the final against Eintracht Braunschweig and failed in the semifinals of the German championship finals at the eventual German champion Viktoria 89 Berlin . On October 15, 1911, Holstein Kiel opened its home ground at Holstein-Platz (today Holstein Stadium) after playing at various locations in Kiel. Today's Holstein Stadium is therefore one of the most traditional venues in German football and only a few clubs in Germany can boast such uninterrupted loyalty to the venue for over 100 years.

On May 26, 1912 Holstein Kiel celebrated the greatest success in the club's history by winning the German championship. As champions of NFV (final against Eintracht Braunschweig 3: 2) you won the final with 1: 0 against the German champions of 1910, the Karlsruhe FV. Ernst Möller scored the decisive goal against Baden , who had eight national players in their ranks, with a converted penalty . 10,000 spectators in Hamburg's Hoheluft stadium represented a new record in North Germany. The club thus secured the first championship title for the NFV. Holstein Kiel also won the German Academic Championship in 1912 by beating VfB Marburg 2-0 , making it the first “ double winner ” in German football organized by the DFB.

Champion team 1912

From 1909 to the outbreak of World War I , the team was one of the strongest teams in Germany and in June 1914 was honored by the German Football Association with the honor of representing Germany at the Baltic Games in Malmö. With a 7-0 win over a Russian and a 1-0 win against a Swedish selection, the Holstein selection became the tournament winner. By the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, a total of five players from Holstein's championship eleven in 1912 had managed to represent Holstein in the German national team .

The club has previously played international friendly matches or went on a friendly match tour to compete against top international clubs. As early as 1912, the championship team traveled to Moscow, for example, or the club invited teams from Denmark, for example Akademisk Boldklub , Kjøbenhavns Boldklub or BK Frem København , to regular friendly matches in Kiel. Not a year passed without several or at least one foreign team playing against Holstein Kiel. Holstein met clubs from England , the Netherlands , France , Russia , Hungary , the Czech Republic , Switzerland , Finland , Sweden , Egypt and Spain at the international friendly games between 1910 and 1930 .

Up until then, many footballers from Kiel came from the educated bourgeoisie and not mostly from working-class circles , as one might assume given the booming imperial war port of Kiel at the beginning of the 20th century. Although many soldiers who were enthusiastic about sports came to the city through the Imperial Navy and helped to promote the football boom, the high number of schoolchildren and students formed the backbone of the football movement in Kiel at that time. As early as 1914, the city of Kiel had 2033 active members, which corresponded to about one percent of the total population and was enormous in relation to other northern German cities (Hamburg 4631 and Lübeck 785 active members). KSV Holstein ranks fourth in the all-time final table of the clubs that played for the German championship from 1903 to 1914 (9 games, 6 wins, 0 draws, 3 defeats, 19:11 goals, 18 points). In front of the KSV are the Karlsruher FV, the Berlin TuFC Viktoria 1889 and at the top of this first all-time table in German first-class football, the then record champions VfB Leipzig .

With the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, gaming came to an abrupt end. From the summer of 1914 until the end of the war in autumn 1918, only emergency championships and friendship games took place. In the war years there were clubs or district teams to play for the North German Championship, but from 1914 to 1919 there were no games for the German Championship. Due to the mobilization , many clubs had difficulties in setting up, so that regular play was not possible. As early as January 1915, about 110 members of the Holstein association were involved in the war. After the Kiel sailors' uprising and thus the end of the war, a total of 86 club members died during the First World War, including four players from the master squad from 1912, or returned to Kiel as war invalids.

After the chaos of war and hardships, the game gradually became organized again, the KSV continued to dominate in their district and always qualified for the North German championship. A peculiarity occurred in the 1928/29 season when nine clubs from the Hamburg area and Holstein Kiel decided to create the “ Round of Ten ” as a separate division. Holstein was runner-up behind Hamburger SV in this round. In 1926, 1927 and 1930 the storks won the North German championship again and were runner-up in 1922, 1923, 1928, 1929, 1931 and 1932. There were always duels with the increasingly stronger Hamburger SV. The two teams shared all North German titles from 1921 to 1933 (HSV 10 titles, KSV 3 titles). In addition to three quarter-finals in 1927, 1928 and 1932 and two semi-finals in 1926 and 1931, the final of the German championship was reached for the third time on June 22, 1930 . In one of the most exciting and goal-rich finals in German football history, KSV lost 4-5 to Hertha BSC in front of around 40,000 spectators in the Düsseldorf Rheinstadion . From 1918 to 1933, a total of eight other Holstein players were appointed to the German national team, including seven players from the 1930 runners-up team.

Data on the final of the German championship in 1930

KSV Holstein occupies sixth place in the table in the all-time final table of the clubs that played for the German championship from 1903 to 1933 (26 games, 16 wins, 0 draws, 10 defeats, 73:54 goals, 48 ​​points). In front of KSV are VfB Leipzig, SpVgg Fürth , Hamburger SV, Hertha BSC and at the top of this all-time table the record champions at the time 1. FC Nürnberg .

1 Gauliga Nordmark was divided into two seasons

After the National Socialist seizure of power, Holstein Kiel played in the Gauliga Nordmark , one of 16 Gauligen in National Socialist Germany. The Gauliga Nordmark was dominated by Eimsbütteler TV and Hamburger SV. Both clubs shared all nine Nordmark titles among themselves, with Eimsbütteler TV winning the championship five times and Hamburger SV four times. The KSV took third place five times and, as the best placing in 1937, second place; thus the club missed participation in the finals of the German championship , as only the Nordmark champions qualified for it. In the all-time table of the Gauliga Nordmark, Holstein Kiel takes third place behind Hamburger SV and Eimsbütteler TV (164 games: 90 wins, 22 draws, 52 defeats; 524: 341 goals, 202: 126 points).

As before, they also played against first-class international opponents and, for example, made a trip to Poland in 1936, where the team played against ŁKS Łódź and Warta Posen and Hungary, where KSV played against MTK Budapest FC in front of 40,000 spectators . With the beginning of the war in 1939 and Kiel's position as a naval port, countless soldiers came to the city, including footballers who were accepted as "guest players" by Holstein and other local clubs. One of the most prominent guest players was the later national player and world champion Ottmar Walter , who played for the storks in the 1942/43 season.

For the 1942/43 season, the Gauliga Nordmark was divided into the leagues Hamburg, Mecklenburg and Schleswig-Holstein for logistical reasons, but also because of cost reasons due to the Second World War . Holstein Kiel, now in the Gauliga Schleswig-Holstein , twice reached the finals for the German championship as champions. In 1943 the KSV sensationally beat the top club FC Schalke 04 in the quarter-finals in front of the record crowd of 18,000 spectators at that time in Kiel with 4: 1, but lost the subsequent semi-final against the eventual German champions Dresdner SC with 1: 3. The game for third place on June 26, 1943 in the Berlin Post Stadium could be won 4-1 against the Austrian capital club First Vienna FC 1894 .

KSV Holstein is in seventh place in the all-time final table of the clubs that played for the German championship from 1903 to 1945 (34 games, 21 wins, 1 draw, 12 defeats; 94:66 goals, 64 points). In front of KSV are Fortuna Düsseldorf , Hertha BSC, Dresdner SC, Hamburger SV and at the top of the former joint record champions 1. FC Nürnberg and FC Schalke 04.

Data for the perpetual final round table from 1903–1945

The club has reached the final round of the German championship 13 times (1910–1913, 1926–1932, 1943 and 1944). The club moved into the final three times (1910, 1912, 1930) and five times (1911, 1913, 1926, 1931, 1943) in the semi-finals. Since the game operations in the Gauliga season 1944/45 had to be canceled due to the war after only a few games played, a city league (the so-called Gauliga Schleswig-Holstein - Staffel Kiel ) was brought into being with the participation of the storks , but their game operations ended soon afterwards had to become.

The city was almost completely destroyed by the air raids on Kiel in World War II. Many KSV Holstein facilities had been hit by bombs, which meant that some departments, such as swimming, could not be rebuilt and were closed. After the end of the war in May 1945, a total of 112 club members were killed in the course of the Second World War.

From 1945 to 1947 Holstein Kiel played for the district championship and in 1947 was runner-up in the final round of the Schleswig-Holstein state championship. Thus, the storks qualified for the newly founded top division, the Oberliga Nord , in which the club played until the introduction of the national Bundesliga in 1963.

The club was excluded from gaming twice in the first few years after the war. Initially by the British military government from mid-July to early October 1946. The background was that the then responsible Kiel Association for Physical Exercise (KVL) won the district championship Holstein Kiel (due to previous consistent performance) instead of the district master Eckernförder SV for participation in the later Had nominated the North German championship, which had already been canceled in the quarterfinals. After an unauthorized later play-off, which Holstein won 4-2, the verdict of the British military government had fallen. The Holstein board was banned for life, the KVL dissolved and Kiel banned as a venue for three months until October 1st.

Immediately for the rest of the season, the storks were excluded from further game operations after the eighth day of the league season 1948/49. The reason was that the club had disregarded the transfer ban in the pre-season 1947/48 by deploying Willy Hamann ( SpVgg Weiden ). Prosecutor was Hanover 96 , which had been relegated from the Oberliga Nord in the pre-season 1947/48 and had received a guaranteed place for the Oberliga season 1949/50. Holstein Kiel was threatened with financial ruin after the verdict, as the club, like Hannover 96, could only play friendlies and no more point games for nine months. However, since the Oberliga Nord was increased from 13 to 16 teams for the 1949/50 season, KSV, like Hannover 96, was allowed to return to the Oberliga Nord.

The Oberliga Nord was one of a total of five major leagues in Germany, whose champions and sometimes also runners-up played for the German championship at the end of a season. In 1953 and 1957 Holstein took part in the final round of the German championship as runner-up in the Oberliga Nord , but without success. In 1953 they played in Group 1 and met the teams 1. FC Kaiserslautern , Eintracht Frankfurt and 1. FC Cologne . With five defeats, one draw (2: 2 against 1. FC Köln) and a goal difference of 8:16 goals, they finished the group stage last. In 1957 , the last time they took part in the final round of the German championship in the club's history, the club failed in the pre-qualification for the group stage with 2: 3 afterwards at Kickers Offenbach .

Participation in the German championships from 1910 to 1957

KSV Holstein is in 15th place in the all-time final table of the clubs that played for the German championship from 1903 to 1963 (41 games, 21 wins, 2 draws, 18 defeats, 104: 85 goals, 65 points).

Data for the perpetual final round table from 1903–1963

Before the 1st Bundesliga was founded in the summer of 1963, the German Football Association developed a distribution key to identify the first 16 Bundesliga clubs. In addition to economic criteria and a twelve-year evaluation , which took into account the sporting performance from the 1951/52 season, the final table of the last Oberliga-Nord season 1962/63 was also decisive for the new national league in the north of the republic . Holstein Kiel took 5th place that season and narrowly missed out on participation in the Bundesliga. Hamburger SV, Werder Bremen and Eintracht Braunschweig were included in the new nationwide league. The clubs VfL Osnabrück , FC St. Pauli , Hannover 96 and Holstein Kiel, who were placed ahead of the Braunschweig team in the twelve-year standings , protested against this. The DFB justified its decision by stating that the clubs named “are to be regarded as equivalent due to their sporting past” and therefore “this year's table should be decisive”. Braunschweig, which was third in the Oberliga Nord in the 1962/63 season, received the Bundesliga license. In the all-time table of the Oberliga Nord from 1947 to 1963, Holstein Kiel is 6th behind Eintracht Braunschweig, VfL Osnabrück, FC St. Pauli, Werder Bremen and Hamburger SV (452 ​​games: 188 wins, 102 draws, 162 defeats; 857: 794 Goals, 469: 419 points).

After missing the Bundesliga qualification, the team went on a friendly game trip, this time to the far north to Iceland. At the invitation of Fram Reykjavík , they met the Icelandic record champions KR Reykjavík (2-0 win) and the Icelandic national football team (4-2 win). Even before the trip, there were international friendly matches, as was so often the case in the 1950s and 1960s. Particularly noteworthy was the game on May 9, 1962 against Ipswich Town . Holstein Kiel beat the reigning English champions 2: 1 (1: 1), although there were four amateur players in the starting eleven.

A premiere in German football took place on October 26, 1957, when a league point game was broadcast in full on German television for the very first time. On the Adolf-Jäger-Kampfbahn in Hamburg-Altona met in the game of the Oberliga Nord Altona 93 on Holstein Kiel (0-0). Another success before the founding of the Bundesliga was winning the 1961 German amateur championship, which was still very popular with the public at the time . The KSV amateurs won the final against Siegburger SV 04 with 5: 1 - in front of more than 70,000 spectators in the Lower Saxony stadium in Hanover.

Due to the unsuccessful qualification for the Bundesliga, Holstein Kiel played in the newly created Regionalliga Nord (second class). It was one of five second-rate leagues in Germany from 1963 to 1974. Like the Oberliga Nord, the Regionalliga Nord consisted of clubs from the four football associations of Lower Saxony, Schleswig-Holstein, Bremen and Hamburg.

The most successful Regionalliga-Nord season was the 1964/65 season. In the summer of 1965 the KSV played as champions of the Regionalliga Nord for promotion to the Bundesliga, but failed in the promotion round to Borussia Mönchengladbach . After two wins, two draws, two defeats and a goal difference of 6: 6 goals, KSV ended up in third place.

Team honor for winning the Regionalliga Nord in the 1964/65 season

In 1966, 1967 and 1970 the KSV finished third and only just missed the promotion round. The founding of the Bundesliga gradually made itself felt in the reduced number of spectators and the club ran into financial difficulties in the early 1970s. In 1973, due to debts, the club sold its sports facilities to the city of Kiel, which the club had received as a gift from the city of Kiel in 1950 for the 50th anniversary of the club. Along with FC St. Pauli, VfL Osnabrück, Arminia Hannover , VfB Lübeck , VfL Wolfsburg and Bremerhaven 93, Holstein Kiel is one of the clubs that played all eleven seasons from 1963 to 1974 in the Regionalliga Nord. In the all-time table of the Regionalliga Nord from 1963 to 1974 Holstein Kiel is fourth behind VfL Wolfsburg, VfL Osnabrück and FC St. Pauli (364 games: 174 wins, 84 draws, 106 defeats; 691: 513 goals, 432: 296 points ).

The Regionalliga Nord received a total of seven places for the two-track 2. Bundesliga , which was newly founded in 1974/75 . These were awarded after a five-year evaluation, whereby the Regionalliga-Nord seasons 69/70 and 70/71 were evaluated once, 71/72 and 72/73 twice, but the 73/74 season four times. If there was a tie, the better placement of the 1973/74 season decided. KSV Holstein took 8th place in this five-year ranking with 91 points, tied with VfB Lübeck (9) and TSR Olympia Wilhelmshaven (7). With 7th place in the final table of the 1973/74 season, Olympia Wilhelmshaven was better placed than Holstein Kiel (13) and VfB Lübeck (16) and thus secured a place in the 2nd Bundesliga North. Holstein Kiel was third class for the first time in the club's history and from then on played in the Oberliga Nord, which was re-established in 1974/75.

The Oberliga Nord (now third class), in the early years still called Amateur Oberliga Nord, consisted of clubs from the associations Hamburg, Bremen, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein like its eponymous but higher-class predecessor (1947–1963). In the first two seasons, 1974/75 and 1975/76, the KSV took 10th and 13th place. After the 1976/77 season, the team played in third place for promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga North, but failed in the promotion round to Rot-Weiß Lüdenscheid ; you ended the round with two wins, four defeats and a goal difference of 9:11 goals in third place.

In the 1977/78 season Holstein Kiel was fourth-placed to take part in the promotion round to the 2nd Bundesliga North. Before that, however, the team had to beat the loser of the final of the Westphalia Championship, 1. FC Paderborn (today: SC Paderborn). After two draws (2: 2 each), KSV won the decisive third game on neutral ground in Osnabrück with 5: 3 (1: 1 after penalties) . In the promotion round, the club met OSV Hannover , Olympia Bocholt and Wacker 04 Berlin . With a 1-0 home win over Wacker 04 Berlin, the Storks secured 2nd place on the last matchday and were promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga North.

The 2nd Bundesliga North consisted of clubs from the associations of North Rhine-Westphalia, West Berlin, Lower Saxony, Bremen, Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein. From 1978 to 1981 the KSV played in the then two-pronged 2nd Bundesliga. In 1978/79 and 1979/80 the team reached 14th place. The 1980/81 season ended in 19th place. Through the reform of the second division in 1981/82, which brought about a single-track nationwide league, the KSV became like 22 other clubs in the then two-pronged 42 strong second division, again third class. In addition to technical qualification criteria, a three-year evaluation decided who was allowed to move up to the new 2nd Bundesliga. In the end, ten teams each should be represented from the north and the south. Holstein Kiel took 19th place in the north and therefore had to enter the third-class Oberliga Nord.

In the Oberliga Nord (then third class), the storks played continuously from 1981 until the third division reform in 1994/95. The most successful season was the 1982/83 season. In the end, Holstein Kiel took third place in the table; In 1987, 1989 and 1991 place 4 was reached. For the most part, they occupied single-digit positions in the table but without playing a role in the promotion race to the 2nd Bundesliga. At the beginning of the 90s, the club ran into enormous financial difficulties. The unattractive league, which is made clear by the falling audience figures and empty coffers, almost forced the club into ruin. In the Holstein Stadium, the structure of the building was falling apart and some areas of the stands were even completely closed. In 1994, after 1989 (at that time banks canceled debts of 400,000 DM), the association was on the verge of bankruptcy for the second time and the debt level (180,000 DM) was almost impossible to manage. Shortly before the club's 100th anniversary, the glorious times of the past had become a long way off. With investments by sponsors and the founding of a sports marketing company, the course was set in good time for continued professional work, so that the club only passed the bankruptcy and thus the deletion from the club registers.

In the all-time table of the Oberliga Nord from 1974 to 1994 Holstein Kiel is fourth, behind VfB Oldenburg , VfL Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen II (566 games, 243 wins, 150 draws, 173 defeats; 913: 757 goals, 636: 496 Points).

In the 1994/95 season, the DFB introduced the regional leagues as the new third-highest division. The placements 1-14 of the final table of the Oberliga North season 1993/94 decided who qualified for the new, initially three-pronged league. In the end, the KSV occupied 7th place in the table and was thus qualified for the Regionalliga Nord . Like its predecessor of the same name, but of a higher class (1963–1974), this consisted of associations of the Lower Saxony, Bremen, Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein associations. After being ranked 11th in the first season, Holstein Kiel rose the following year as bottom of the table from the Regionalliga Nord. In the end, two points were missing to prevent the first fourth class; henceforth one played in the Oberliga Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein, founded in 1994/95.

After two years in the Oberliga Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein Holstein Kiel returned to the Regionalliga Nord in the summer of 1998 and played there until relegation again in the summer of 2000. This time the third division reform 2000/01 had an impact on relegation. The four regional leagues have been reduced to two seasons (north and south). Kiel rose again in eighth place in the Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein Oberliga, as only the first six teams qualified for the new two-track regional league.

After the second relegation to the fourth division, the direct re-promotion succeeded. Due to the reform of the third division in 2000/01, the champions of the upper league Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein and the upper league Lower Saxony / Bremen did not rise directly as usual; from then on they had to play against each other for promotion to the new two-track regional league. Holstein Kiel met the Lower Saxony / Bremen champions 1. SC Göttingen 05 (today I. SC Göttingen 05) as champions. 1. SC Göttingen 05 prevailed in the promotion games after a 2-0 defeat in the first leg with 3-0 in the second leg. But for economic reasons (bankruptcy, not successfully completed due to lack of assets) the Lower Saxony was refused the license for the Regionalliga Nord and the club was struck from the register of associations, whereby the KSV was the first to move up to the Regionalliga Nord.

In the all-time table of the Regionalliga Nord from 1994 to 2000 Holstein Kiel is 14th (136 games, 46 wins, 34 draws, 56 defeats; 184: 215 goals, 172 points).

In the two-pronged Regionalliga (then third class) the KSV fought again against relegation and finished four years in a row at the bottom of the table. The regional league north of the same name, but geographically larger, existed from 2000 to 2008 and consisted primarily of clubs from three ( NFV , NOFV and WFLV ) of the five German regional associations . The 2005/06 season in the Regionalliga Nord ended after the autumn championship in 4th place in the table. At the end of the 2005/06 season, the German Football League (DFL) declared that the stadium was no longer classified as suitable for the third division by the DFB control bodies responsible for licensing. Modernization measures were carried out at the Holstein Stadium, with which the club fulfilled the safety and media license requirements required by the DFL and the DFB.

After the 2006/07 season, the club rose for the third time in the fourth division. Since the introduction of the three-point rule in 1995, no relegated team from the first three leagues has been relegated with such a high score. In the end, four clubs got 48 points, of which Holstein Kiel had the worst goal difference and therefore relegated to the fourth-class Oberliga Nord, which was re-established in 2004/05. In the all-time table of the Regionalliga Nord from 2000 to 2008 Holstein Kiel is in 7th place (210 games, 77 wins, 57 draws, 76 defeats; 302: 301 goals, 288 points).

At the end of the 2006/07 season, Holstein Kiel was relegated to the Oberliga Nord (then fourth class), which had been re-established in the 2004/05 season from the two leagues Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony / Bremen, in order to reduce the performance gap to the two-track regional league to reduce. The 2007/08 Oberliga Nord season was very successful for the storks . Two game days before the end of the season, the team won the championship with a 2-0 away win against the second team from Eintracht Braunschweig. Due to the third division reform of 2008/09, which resulted in a single-track, nationwide third division , the champions of the Oberliga Nord did not rise directly to the third highest class, as was customary until then. Rather, the first five teams of the last Oberliga-Nord season 2007/08 qualified directly and another team via a promotion round for the new three-track regional league (fourth class). The Regionalliga Nord at that time consisted primarily of clubs from the regional associations of the NFV and the Northeast German Football Association NOFV .

On June 4, 2008 Holstein Kiel won the Schleswig-Holstein State Cup (SHFV Cup) for the tenth time . In the final, KSV beat arch rivals VfB Lübeck 1-0 and qualified for the 2008/09 DFB Cup.

In the 2008/09 season Holstein Kiel was one of the teams at the top of the table in the Regionalliga Nord right from the start. After the first half of the season they were in first place ahead of 1. FC Magdeburg and Halleschen FC . On the last day of the match there was a long-distance duel with Halle for promotion to the third division. Holstein Kiel won the last league game against VfB Lübeck 1-0, while Hallesche FC lost 0-1 to VFC Plauen . Holstein Kiel was thus champion of the Regionalliga Nord and rose to the 3rd division. The club played for the first time in its long history in a national league. But after one season they were relegated again and played again in the fourth-class Regionalliga Nord from the 2010/11 season. In the first season after relegation, the club finished 6th in the table. 2011/12 missed promotion on the last day of the game; Despite a home record of 15 wins and two draws (most recently in the 1986/87 season), two points were missing from the newly promoted Hallescher FC. In the all-time table of the Regionalliga Nord from 2008 to 2012 Holstein Kiel is in third place (102 games, 60 wins, 23 draws, 19 defeats; 192: 89 goals, 203 points).

In the 2012/13 season, the club took part in the newly reformed regional league , which has since consisted of five seasons instead of three. Although the regional league remained fourth-rate, the league is limited to the federal states of Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Bremen and Lower Saxony and is thus geographically reminiscent of the old league (1947–1963, 1974–1994) and the old regional league (1963–1974, 1994 -2000). In 2013 Kiel won the championship and the subsequent promotion games against KSV Hessen Kassel 2-0 and 2-1 and returned to the third division.

The first season after being promoted again in 2013 almost ended with direct relegation. With a 3-1 away win at the later promoted SV Darmstadt 98 , relegation could be secured on the last match day. In the 2014/15 season Holstein Kiel qualified with a 3rd place for the relegation games to the 2nd Bundesliga against TSV 1860 Munich . After a 0-0 win in the home stadium, they lost 2-1 in the second leg in Munich after a lead through a goal in stoppage time and thus missed promotion.

After a season in the lower midfield of the league, Holstein Kiel made it to the 2nd Bundesliga on matchday 37 of the 2016/17 season with a 1-0 away win at SG Sonnenhof Großaspach . The club reached the second class again after 36 years. After promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga and winning the autumn championship in the first half of the 2017/18 season, the Schleswig-Holstein State Sports Association named the club to the Schleswig-Holstein Team of the Year 2017 for the first time. In the 2017/18 season Holstein Kiel qualified third in the table for the relegation games to the 1st Bundesliga against VfL Wolfsburg. After a 3-1 defeat in Wolfsburg, they also lost the second leg 0-1 and thus missed promotion.

DFB Cup and predecessor

The NFV announced a cup competition for the first time in 1924, but it was not particularly popular and was therefore discontinued in 1928. The winners of the NFV circles at the time were eligible to participate. Holstein Kiel won three of the four events (1925 7-0 against Bremer SV , 1926 3-1 against Eimsbütteler TV and 1928 3-1 against Phoenix Lübeck ) and reached the final in 1927 (1: 3 against Hamburger SV). For the Tschammer Cup , which was held nine times and was the predecessor of today's DFB Cup from 1935 to 1943, the club qualified six times for the Germany-wide pairings in the first final round. With the first participation Holstein Kiel reached the 2nd final round, 1937 the second round and 1943 the quarter-finals. The greatest success was participation in the semi-finals in 1941. The club was the first team from Schleswig-Holstein to reach a German Cup semi-final, but lost it 6-0 at FC Schalke 04. On the way there they beat Hamburger SV 2-1, SV Werder Bremen 2-1, in the second round Blau-Weiß 90 Berlin 4-0 and in the quarterfinals 1. SV Jena (today: FC Carl Zeiss Jena) with 2: 1.

The storks have qualified 26 times for the DFB Cup , which has been held since 1952 . For Holstein Kiel the tournament ended eleven times in the first round (1971/72, 1975/76, 1980/81, 1994/95, 1996/97, 2003/04, 2005/06, 2007/08, 2008/09, 2014) / 15, 2015/16), seven times the team reached the 2nd round (1974/75, 1979/80, 1983/84, 1991/92, 2002/03, 2017/18, 2019/20), once the 3rd round. Round (1981/82), five times finished in the round of 16 (1961/62, 1965/66, 1970/71, 1978/79, 2018/19) and once in the quarter-finals (2011/12). In 2011/12, Holstein Kiel reached the quarter-finals in the German cup competition for the first time since the Second World War, in which the then reigning German champions and later cup winners Borussia, after successes over the second division club Energie Cottbus , the second division club MSV Duisburg and the federal division club 1.FSV Mainz 05 Dortmund lost 4-0. Holstein Kiel, 1. FC Magdeburg (2000/01 cup season) and 1. FC Saarbrücken (2019/20 cup season) are the only three clubs in German cup history that have reached at least the quarter-finals as fourth division clubs. The club caused a cup surprise in the DFB-Pokal season 2020/21, in which they defeated the reigning Trible winner FC Bayern Munich 6: 5 (2: 2 nV) on penalties in the second main round .

From 1952/53 to 1973/74 Holstein Kiel qualified via the North German Cup / NFV Cup (1952–1974) for the DFB Cup. With the introduction of the two-part 2. Bundesliga in the 1974/75 season, the qualification system for participation in the DFB Cup was changed. In addition to the participants from the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga, the regional associations were henceforth responsible for identifying and naming the "amateur participants" for the organization of an association cup. With the exception of the period in which they belonged to the 2nd division, Holstein Kiel has since competed in the SHFV Cup in order to qualify for the DFB Cup.

Club environment

Stadium / venue and training facility

Holstein Stadium 1911

Holstein Kiel plays its home games in the Holstein Stadium in the north of Kiel in the Wik district . After four months of construction, the stadium was originally opened by Holstein as Holstein-Platz on October 15, 1911. Before that, Holstein played on Gutenbergplatz and from 1907, like his later merger partner, 1. KFV, on the newly opened municipal sports and playground on Eckernförde Chaussee ( today Nordmarksportfeld ). The Holstein-Platz was expanded and enlarged over time (in 1921 after a windpipe and in 1927 by a general renovation) and in 1943 offered space for around 18,000 spectators.

Old back straight 2006

After the Second World War, the stadium was badly damaged by bombs and the club began rebuilding in 1949. After the construction of the new main grandstand and the extension of the trusses on the back straight in 1950, the stadium offered 30,000 spectators. In 1957 the floodlight system was inaugurated and in 1965 the venue was officially renamed the Holstein Stadium. In the following years (exception: the stadium was sold to the city in 1975 and promoted to the second division in 1978), no major changes were made to the stadium, so that it gradually fell apart. At the turn of the millennium, the authorized audience capacity fell to 8,000 seats for a short time due to partial closures of grandstands. After renovation work, the stadium was fully accessible again and the total capacity rose again to 13,500.

In 2006, renovation and renovation measures took place (investment: 1.8 million euros) after the DFB had classified the stadium as no longer suitable for the third division. With the construction of the new roofed west and north tubular steel grandstands, the audience capacity fell to 11,386 seats. In the summer of 2009, the club fulfilled further criteria by building new floodlight masts suitable for television and other requirements that the DFB had requested for third division games. Most of the costs (investment: 4.2 million euros) went into the expansion of the Projensdorf training and young talent center. From 2011 to 2015 further renovations were carried out (investment: 2 million euros), which included a display board, underfloor heating with new drainage , wider and new access routes and renovation work in the sanitary and catering area. As a result of the promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga in 2017, renovations were again carried out in order to meet the DFL requirements for match operations. This was followed by the expansion of the floodlights, the changing rooms, the mixed zone and the press area. In addition, the grandstands on the main, west and north grandstands were raised, the east curve demolished and replaced by a new roofed tubular steel grandstand (investment: 6.4 million euros).

The stadium currently has a capacity of 15,034 spectators.

The training center ( Citti-Fußball-Park ) of Holstein Kiel is located between the two districts of Suchsdorf and Steenbek-Projensdorf and is about three kilometers to the north-west of the Holstein Stadium. The 4.5 hectare site was leased to the club by the city of Kiel at the turn of the millennium (then with a lawn and a grand pitch). In the summer of 2009, a new building for the office and other modernization measures began on the premises of the Projensdorf training and young talent center. Today there are several grass and artificial turf pitches, an artificial turf hall and a weight room on the site. In September 2019, the club announced that it would invest 3 million euros in two new soccer fields in Projensdorf. The two pitches completed in summer 2020, a hybrid turf and a natural turf pitch, each have floodlights, a drainage system and turf heating. In addition, in summer 2020 the Holstein Stadium and the arena in the Citti Football Park, where the games for the second team and the youth take place, were equipped with a hybrid turf, irrigation system and drainage.

The youth performance center , which has been officially recognized as a DFB performance center by the German Football Association since 2007 , has been called the Citti- Fußball -Park since October 2016 and received the certification of a maximum of three quality stars from the DFB in summer 2019 and thus the highest award.

Mascot and nickname

White stork

Since the 2006/07 season, Holstein Kiel has had a mascot again, which was named “Stolle” on the occasion of a home game against 1. FC Union Berlin . The Holstein fans had been asked to submit name suggestions, from which a jury selected the most suitable. Holstein Kiel's traditional nickname is Die Störche . The mascot itself is a stork in full football gear in the club colors of blue-white-red.

The origin of the nickname The Storks is not clear. On the one hand, the first club bar called “Zum Storchnest” existed as early as 1900 on Gutenbergstrasse near today's Holstein Stadium. On the other hand, the costume of Holstein Kiel with the white trousers and red socks is reminiscent of a white stork. Presumably the name The Storks can be traced back to both the eye-catching clothing and the club bar.

The nickname has been a household name in the sports press since the 1950s and the KSV has been regularly depicted as a stork in the Oberliga preview caricatures. This does not mean that the nickname could not be of an older origin, as the reporting before the First World War was initially brief and very factual. In the 1920s and 1930s it took up more space, but the official and not the slang terms were mostly used in specialist publications.

Sponsors and suppliers

KSV Holstein played in the promotion round to the 2nd Bundesliga in 1978 for the first time with an advertising print on the club's jersey. The first was Damp 2000 , the 1972 built holiday center in Damp , which advertised on Kiel jerseys until 1980.

The KSV then concluded jersey sponsorship agreements with several other companies. From 1981 to 1984 with Denimil , 1984/85 the Kieler Volksbank , 1985/86 NTKV , 1986/87 with Sport Aktuell and Gothaer , 1987 to 1989 Gothaer , 1989 to 1992 Störche 2000 , 1992/93 bkt-Computer , 1993/94 Solterbeck , 1994 to 1996 Karlsruher Insurance , 1996 to 2000 Veltins and 2000/01 Gimborn . From 2001 to 2005 the supermarket chain Markant was a shirt sponsor and since the 2005/06 season it has been the hypermarket chain famila . Both companies belong to Bartels-Langness GmbH & Co. KG, which has its headquarters in Kiel. The former owner of the company, Hermann Langness, had been a member of the 1. KFV since 1906 and, after the merger in 1917, continued to be a member of the newly founded KSV Holstein. From 1930 to 1938 and from 1949 to 1952 he was President of Holstein Kiel and his grandson Hermann Langness maintains this family tradition as a member of the first supervisory board (2007) in the history of Holstein.

The second main sponsor besides famila is the Citti group of companies (shareholders Bartels-Langness and Gerhard Lütje), a delivery service for bulk consumers and operators of supermarkets and shopping parks. In addition to the two main sponsors, there are co-sponsors Förde Sparkasse , NordwestLotto Schleswig-Holstein, VW Zentrum Kiel and the Flensburg brewery . In addition to the four regional co-sponsors mentioned, national companies such as Sinalco and Puma and international companies such as Drückglück.de (online casino) based in Malta or Markant (supermarket chain and association) based in Switzerland are among the eight co -Sponsors. There is also a broad pool of sponsors made up of 17 team partners, 3 media partners and over 200 local and regional companies that support the association.

The KSV's first kit supplier was the sporting goods manufacturer Puma from 1978 to 1988. From the 1988/89 to 1991/92 season and from 1994/95 to 2016/17 adidas was Holstein Kiel's supplier for many years. In the meantime, the British sporting goods manufacturer Umbro from 1992 to 1994. Since the 2017/18 season, the sporting goods manufacturer Puma has again been an outfitter for Holstein Kiel.

Cooperation with schools and associations

A partnership with the US soccer club San Francisco Glens has existed since June 2019 . The football club, founded in 1961, plays in the fourth class USL League Two . Among other things, the cooperation provides for young players and coaches to visit each other, as well as for the exchange of know-how and ideas. In addition, training and further education by trainers from KSV is planned as part of soccer camps and a training camp for the league team in summer 2020 in the western United States . The city of Kiel and San Francisco have been twinning cities since September 2017 . The aim is to cooperate in the areas of economic development, education, climate protection, culture, sport, tourism, science and digitization.

In addition, with the aim of improving talent promotion in the Schleswig-Holstein area, the club maintains club cooperations with FC fishing 02 , Heider SV and SpVg Eidertal Molfsee . The association also runs holiday camps with age-appropriate training for children between the ages of 6 and 13 and cooperates with the associations FSG Ostseeküste / MTV Gelting, Gettorfer SC, Heider SV, SpVg Eidertal Molfsee, SSV Jersbek and SV Boostedt. In girls' and women’s football, the club cooperates with TuS Felde and organizes trial and inspection training together.

In addition, the association currently has cooperation agreements with three schools in Kiel. The aim of the cooperation is to enable the young competitive footballers an optimal compatibility of school and football. This is guaranteed by the regular exchange between the club and the school. The three partner schools are the Ernst-Barlach-Gymnasium in the Wik district , the Regional Business Education Center in the Ravensberg district and the Theodor Storm Community School in the Wellingdorf district .

Derbies and rivalries

Game scene from the derby against VfB Lübeck in October 1965 in Kiel (final score 1: 1)

The most important games of KSV Holstein are the encounters or derbies against VfB Lübeck. This rivalry is mainly due to the question of number 1 in the state of Schleswig-Holstein. The overall balance since the first encounter in the 1932/33 season looks clearly positive from Holstein's point of view after more than 120 encounters and more than 60 wins. Holstein Kiel mostly claimed the unofficial title “No. 1 in Schleswig-Holstein “in front of VfB Lübeck.

Before the Second World War, Holstein Kiel was the undisputed No. 1 in the then Prussian province of Schleswig-Holstein (1867–1946). However, after the end of the war in 1945, other Schleswig-Holstein clubs also finished the season as the best team in the state (see graphic).

Goal for Kiel in the derby against HSV, January 1963 (final score 1: 1)

The games against the Hamburg rivals FC St. Pauli and Hamburger SV are also among the most important games of KSV Holstein and always generate great public interest.

This is illustrated by the attendance record in the Holstein Stadium, which is still valid today, which was achieved against Hamburger SV. On March 23, 1951, 30,000 spectators made the pilgrimage to the Nordderby (then / outdated also called Nordmarkschlager ) and saw a 3: 3 (1: 2). Because of the class difference between 1963 and 2018, however, one can no longer speak of intense mutual rivalry today as it did in the years 1919 to 1963 (103 encounters in that period; 23 wins, 14 draws, 66 defeats). Nevertheless, the game against HSV is highly valued by fans and connoisseurs, even if both clubs have met in friendly games over the past four decades. Due to Hamburg's historic Bundesliga relegation, both clubs have met again in competitive games since the second division season 2018/19 . The overall balance of all games after 125 encounters is: 26 Holstein wins, 21 draws, 78 HSV successes. (As of 2020)

Game scene from the derby against FC St. Pauli in April 1967 in Kiel (final score 1: 1)

Due to the more than 40 joint seasons in the same division (1927–1929, 1934/35, 1936–1940, 1947–1974, 1978/79, 1981–1984, 1985/86, 2003–2007 and 2017–2020), the rivalry is based on FC St. Pauli is more based on direct sporting success. Overall balance from Kiel's point of view after 89 league competitive games since the first meeting in the 1927/28 season: 30 wins, 23 draws, 36 defeats (as of 2021) .

The encounters with the third most successful and traditional Hamburg soccer club Altona 93 were a crowd puller for a long time. Both clubs have met in over a hundred meetings in their club history. Until the organized competition in Kiel (1903/04), the Altonaer FC from 1893 was the best team in the province of Schleswig-Holstein. From 1905 on, Holstein Kiel became Altona's greatest opponent, and from 1910 at the latest Holstein Kiel was the dominant club in the Prussian province. Altona 93 was only able to finish the season ahead of KSV Holstein in 1914, 1917 and 1925. In 1924 this was also achieved by Union 03 Altona , the second most successful club from the then still independent town of Altona, which was part of the province of Schleswig-Holstein (since 1937 Hamburg district). The rivalry lost more and more importance since 1968 at the latest due to the Altona relegation to the Hamburg regional league.

Other derbies that were well attended in the past were the games against FC Kilia Kiel, SV Friedrichsort and VfR Neumünster .

The amateur department was founded before 1945 and was assigned to the Kiel district league in 1951. In 1955, the team rose for the first time in the then second-highest German league, the amateur league Schleswig-Holstein (today Football Oberliga Schleswig-Holstein ), and became champions in 1961. As a result, the amateurs qualified for the German amateur championship , which they won with a 5-1 win against Siegburger SV 04. In 1963, the team was relegated from the highest Schleswig-Holstein division. After the direct resurgence in 1964, the amateurs won the SHFV Cup in 1961 and 1962 as well. In 1969 the team rose again from the highest Schleswig-Holstein division and played in the same, but renamed and fourth-class Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein from the 1993/94 season on again.

In the very first year, the amateurs won the championship in 1994 and thus qualified for the fourth-class Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein Oberliga, from which they were relegated in 1996. In 2002 the team rose again and won the Oberliga Hamburg / Schleswig-Holstein championship in 2004. Thus one qualified for the newly introduced fourth class Oberliga Nord.

The second team or the U23 finished the Oberliga Nord (4th division) 2006/07 season with ninth place in the table, but had to go to the Schleswig-Holstein Association League due to the relegation of the 1st men's team from the Regionalliga Nord (3rd division) ( 5th league). In 2008, two game days before the end of the season, the team confidently secured the association championship ahead of VfR Neumünster and TSV Kropp . In the 2008/09 season, the second team continued to play fifth class, only the Schleswig-Holstein Association League was renamed the Schleswig-Holstein League.

In the Schleswig-Holstein League, the second team defended the championship on the penultimate match day in 2008/09, but failed in the promotion round to Regionalliga Nord 6: 7 (1: 0 a.s.) after penalty shoot-out at FC St. Pauli II. In the 2009/10 season they secured the SH championship for the third time in a row two game days before the end. The promotion to the fourth division regional league failed because of the relegation of the first men's team from the third division. In the 2017/18 season, the second team qualified via third place in the Oberliga Schleswig-Holstein for the relegation games for promotion to the Regionalliga Nord . In the relegation one met the clubs VfL Oldenburg , Brinkumer SV and FC Teutonia 05 Ottensen and finished them in first place, whereby the team was promoted to fourth division.

The home games take place in the Sinalco Arena in the Holstein-Kiel training center in Projensdorf .

For Holstein Kiel, youth always played an important role. The founding of the club by schoolchildren paved the interest in youth football from the start. The club had its first youth teams as early as 1903 and the German championship team from 1912 already included six players ( Hans Reese , Willi Fick , Hugo Fick , David Binder , Heinrich Homeister and Ernst Möller ) who had learned to play football in Holstein's youth.

Due to the good youth work, it was not difficult for the club to build up a powerful league team again during and after the two world wars, in contrast to many other clubs. Other players who testify to the early interest in youth football are the later three national players Franz Esser , Kurt Voss and Werner Widmayer , who were part of the runner-up team from 1930 and came to KSV at a young age. The best-known youth player in this country, who laced his football boots with Holstein Kiel for 16 years, is world and European champion Andreas Köpke .

Countless championship titles and cup wins at district, district and state level as well as players who have made the leap into the Bundesliga ( Fin Bartels , Francisco Copado , Sidney Sam , Christopher Avevor , Hauke ​​Wahl , Fabian Reese , Max Christiansen , Melvyn Lorenzen ) confirm the good Youth work until today.

KSV's A youth team has played eleven seasons in the U-19 Bundesliga, which was founded in 2003/04 . The team competes in the North / Northeast group of the three-part Bundesliga. For the DFB junior club cup , which has been played for the first time since 1987 , the A-youth from Holstein Kiel have qualified 17 times, making them a record participant from Schleswig-Holstein. The B-Jugend has played ten seasons in the U-17 Bundesliga, which was founded in 2007/08 . The B-youth also plays for points in the group north / north-east. The first C-youth of the club played in the C-Juniors Regionalliga Nord , which was founded in 2004/05 and is the top division in this age group, for 14 seasons so far. The regional league includes the federal states of Hamburg, Bremen, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein.

Men's handball

Holstein Kiel's men's handball division was founded on January 15, 1924. Major national successes were not achieved, but the club played from 1961 to 1965 in the then first-class Schleswig-Holstein State League. The highlights were the major international tournaments in the Kieler Ostseehalle (today Sparkassen Arena) in the 1950s and 1960s, where opponents such as the Swedish champions Heim Göteborg , Reinickendorfer Füchse (now Füchse Berlin ) and THW Kiel were played. The men are currently playing in the Förde region in the 2nd district class of Kiel.


A tennis department was founded at KSV as early as March 1919. In 1921, the tennis players and the Düsternbrook tennis company formed a community of 80 players. But at the beginning of 1922 the episode tennis at KSV was over for the time being due to lack of active people and money. In 1988 the tennis department was brought back to life. No major national successes were achieved.


Holstein Kiel has had a cheerleading department since 2003 . It consists of the Northern Lights - the Seniors (from 15 years) of the Holstein Kiel cheerleaders. The Shining Lights - the junior cheerleaders (from 11 to 15 years) and the Twinkling Lights - the Peewees (from 5 to 11 years) and thus the youngest cheerleaders at Holstein Kiel. The cheerleader squads have been taking part in the state championships since 2003 and were represented at the German Cheermasters and the German Cheerleader Championships. In addition to other appearances, the cheerleaders can be seen during the breaks at the home games of KSV Holstein in the Holstein Stadium.


Holstein Kiel has had its own department for e-sports since November 24, 2018 , which takes part in the Virtual Bundesliga .

Former divisions

Table tennis

The table tennis department was founded in 1945. Until the end of the 1960s, Holstein Kiel was one of the leading table tennis clubs in Schleswig-Holstein and was number two in the state capital behind the Kiel TTK Grün-Weiß . In 1950, 1953 and 1958 the women won the Schleswig-Holstein state championship. While the men were relegated from the Oberliga Nord in 1966 , which had been the highest German league up until then, and never made it back, the women were promoted to the Oberliga for the first time in 1964. In 1968 the storks did without the Oberligaplatz, although they had safely managed to stay in the league as sixth in the table.

The name Holstein Kiel reappeared nationwide : in 1975 several clubs from the Kiel region, including Holstein, merged to form TTSG 75 Kiel in order to be able to compete with the green-whites of the KTTK in terms of performance. Already in the first season he was promoted to the Oberliga Nord for women. Since syndicates were not permitted on a supraregional level at the time, the TTSG appeared in the 1976/77 season under the name Holstein Kiel , was promptly won the league as a newcomer and was promoted to the table tennis Bundesliga . There the team played under the name TSV Kronshagen (this club also belonged to TTSG 75 Kiel). Today Holstein Kiel no longer has a table tennis department.


Like almost all football clubs at the beginning of the 20th century, Holstein Kiel also had a track and field tradition. Both Holstein and his later merger partner, the 1. KFV, did intensive athletics in the summer months when football was not being played. Particularly noteworthy is the 1. KFV, which was considered one of the leading athletics clubs in Northern Germany from 1909 and, with Robert Pasemann, had a two-time German champion in the high jump and pole vault (1909 and 1910).

Even after the merger in 1917, athletics had retained its high status and by the end of the Second World War, good placements at the German championships were achieved and many titles were won at the state championships. In 1927, the club began to build a cinder track for the athletes as part of the general renovation of the Holstein-Platz (today the Holstein Stadium). Many athletes came to competitions in Kiel because of the well-known, good cinder track.

A very successful period followed after the Second World War, winning nine German championships. Particularly noteworthy is Uwe Beyer, who won the bronze medal at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo. In terms of youth work, there are four German junior titles and eight German youth titles for Holstein Kiel in various disciplines. Interest in the department gradually waned in the 1970s and it later disbanded.

Box department

The boxing department of KSV Holstein was founded in 1925, but the strong competition in Hamburg made it difficult to keep talent in Kiel. After the Second World War, boxing began to flourish again at KSV Holstein and the boxers fought against well-known boxing wars such as SV Prag Stuttgart , SC Colonia 06 or 1953 against Partizan Belgrade in front of 5,000 spectators in the Kieler Ostseehalle (today Sparkassen-Arena). A few more state championships were won, but later, with the general decline in interest in amateur boxing, the Holstein boxing relay began to be disbanded in Kiel from 1966.

  • Willi Hoepner , later a professional and 1955 European light heavyweight champion
  • Walter Einfeld, German lightweight champion in 1949, runner-up in 1950
  • Rolf Ziegler, German amateur youth welterweight champion
  • Peter Born, 1965 national welterweight champion
  • Manfred Staske, 1966 national bantamweight champion


The men's volleyball team was one of the leading teams in Schleswig-Holstein at the end of the 1990s and played from 1994 to 2000 in what was then the third-highest division in Germany, the Regionalliga Nord.

Other former divisions

In addition, the sports of hockey, swimming, batting, fistball and cycling were once offered by KSV Holstein. The departments fell victim to either their own development in the club or the general decline in popularity and thus also the lack of active people. Due to the loss of training facilities after the Second World War, for example, the swimming department could not be rebuilt.
