The Münchner Sportclub e. V. (MSC) was founded in 1896 and is a sports club from Munich ( Lerchenau district ). It is the oldest, unchanged existing hockey club in Germany . In 1998 he celebrated the 100th anniversary of his hockey department. The MSC also runs tennis and fitness .


In 1896 a group of foreign students (English, French, Russians, Scandinavians, Americans, Brazilians and South Africans) founded an association called the Internationaler Sportclub München (ISC). The first sport practiced was boxing, but as more and more locals joined the new movement over the next few years, the program was constantly expanded. The ISC soon gained international fame in cycling polo, followed by tennis, football and, from 1898, hockey. The name was changed to Münchener Sportclub (MSC) as early as 1899 .

After sport was first practiced on a site on Karl-Theodor-Straße, the large area on Schwabinger Landstraße was leased from the city in 1906 and was the home of the club until 1963. At the same time, the entire second floor of the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten was rented for administration and as club rooms , which was specially converted for this purpose. Numerous new departments were founded in the winter sports field, e.g. B. Ski, bobsleigh and ice hockey. The team took part in the German ice hockey championship in 1913 . Women's hockey was also added in 1911.

It was in the spring of 1906 when negotiations with FC Bayern Munich came to an end. The Bavarians joined the MSC as an independent football department - while maintaining their independence and the name FA Bayern in the Munich SC - as a condition they had to exchange their black shorts for the wine-red ones of the MSC. As an MSC department, they won the championship of the Ostkreis in 1910 and 1911 within the Association of South German Football Associations . This association lasted until 1919.

Smaller Munich sports clubs joined as departments of the now obviously financially strong MSC. With up to 22 departments it was at times Europe's largest sports association and it is not without pride that members close to the court counted among its members. The construction of the grandstand, which stood until 1960, had space for 200 people and, in addition to changing rooms, also contained an apartment for the servant, also fell during this period.

After the First World War , the former major club MSC disintegrated, former departments went into business for themselves or joined other clubs, such as the track and field athletes and the FA Bayern gymnastics club Jahn . The surviving old folks devoted themselves mainly to the card game and no longer found the strength to take care of the rebuilding and continuation of the old MSC. It was left to a group of younger people to found the Munich sports club for tennis and hockey together with some upright old people in 1920 , which otherwise continued the tradition unchanged. In January 1933 a further change of the club name to Münchner Sportclub eV was decided unanimously.

After moving from Schwabing in 1963, today's facility at Eberwurzstraße 28 was built on the site in Lerchenau. The driving force for the athletic advancement and the construction of the new facility was Hans Fleitmann, club president from 1960 until his death in 1983.


Hockey has been played in the MSC since 1898 and the first guaranteed hockey match took place at Easter 1898 in the absence of national opponents in Vienna against the Vienna AC .

Since the late 1970s, the first MSC teams have been represented in the national leagues of the German Hockey Association (DHB). The first men's team was German indoor hockey champion in 2003 and 2006, under the long-time successful coach Klaus Holzmüller, who was also a women's coach , and the national indoor hockey champions in 2004. The team rose in 2007 after long years of first class as the bottom of the table from the field hockey Bundesliga , after the third place could be achieved there in the previous year. Although they were promoted again in the 2016/17 season, they were immediately relegated in the 2017/18 season. In the hall they are still first class.

The women's team is first class in the field as well as in the hall and became German runner-up in 2015. In 2017, the team achieved success at their premiere at the Euro Hockey Club Trophy, which is synonymous with the greatest field success in the club's history.

Former actors include a .: Caroline Casaretto , Katharina Scholz , Philipp Zeller , Christopher Zeller , Max Weinhold , Rebecca Landshut and Hannah Krüger.

Youth work

The MSC attaches great importance to its youth work. For example, the double Olympic champions Philipp and Christopher Zeller and goalkeeper Max Weinhold are the sports club's own generation. Many Bavarian championship titles have been won over time, plus titles at the southern German championships. The youth department of the MSC has so far won the German championship title five times.

Christoph Elste is currently responsible for youth work. Under him, the MSC succeeded for the first time in qualifying four youth teams for the German championships in one season.

At the beginning of 2017, a new hockey performance center with a second artificial turf pitch and a hall complex should be opened on the facility in Lerchenau.

The track and field athlete Hanns Braun came to MSC at the age of 16 to play hockey. His running talent was soon recognized and from 1904 he devoted himself to athletics, although the MSC officially had no athletics department at that time. But he did not give up the hockey game. He was at the 1908 Olympic Games in London and in 1912 in Stockholm , winning two silver and one bronze, and was in 1909 , 1910 and 1912 German champion over 400 meters. Braun, who set a world record over 1000 m and 15 German records between 1907 and 1912, withdrew more and more to Stockholm.
