The SC Preußen 06 e. V. Münster is a sports club from Münster . The club was a finalist in the final of the German soccer championship in 1951 and a founding member of the Bundesliga in 1963 . The club colors are black, white and green, the heraldic animal is the Prussian eagle .

Since February 28, 2018, the professional football department has been outsourced to Sportclub Preußen Münster 06 GmbH & Co. KGaA , of which the club is a limited partner. The general partner authorized to manage the company and fully liable is Sportclub Preußen Münster 06 Geschäftsführungs-GmbH , whose shares are held in full by the association. Since advancing as champion of the regional football league West in the 2010/11 season, Preußen Münster played in the 3rd division until 2020 . In 2020 the club was relegated to the Regionalliga West again. The second team plays in the Oberliga Westfalen . The A-Juniors have been playing in the A-Juniors Bundesliga West season since the 2014/15 season and are therefore just as top-class as the B-Juniors in the B-Juniors Bundesliga West Season and the C-Juniors in the Regionalliga West.


Foundation and promotion to the top division

Old club crest

The association was founded on April 30, 1906 by students from today's Johann-Conrad-Schlaun-Gymnasium under the name “FC Preußen”. Football historians suspect that the name was probably due to patriotic reasons. At the beginning, FC Prussia did not have its own place, so that, with the approval of the commanding general Freiherr von Bissing, they played on an army parade ground on the Loddenheide. As a condition of the general, however, the goals had to be dismantled after each game. The Münster team won their first game against FC Osnabrück on June 24, 1907, 5-0. After the club was accepted into the West German Association of Games, they initially played second class until they were promoted to the A class (1st division) as early as 1908. In 1910 the FCP moved to Feldschlösschen on Sentruper Höhe in the west of Münster. In 1914 the club became Westphalian champions for the first time. This success was repeated in 1921, when the name was changed to "Sportclub Preußen". Between 1916 and 1926 the SCP played on Münstermannplatz, which was not far from today's Prussian stadium.

There the club became part of German broadcasting history in 1925 when a live commentary was made for the first time (by Bernhard Ernst ) on November 1, 1925 (game against Arminia Bielefeld ). Preußen Münster has been playing in the Preußenstadion on Hammer Strasse since 1926.

From 1933 to 1936 and again from 1938 to 1941, the Prussians belonged to the Gauliga Westfalen for a total of six seasons , which at the time was, along with 15 other Gauligen, the highest German division.

After the war in the Oberliga West

After the Second World War , the club was finally able to establish itself after several relegations and re-ascents from the late 1940s in the then first-class Oberliga West . Josef Oevermann played a major role in this, since as a football lobbyist and entrepreneur he brought the so-called “Prussian Ring” into being, a counterpart to today's pool of sponsors. Oevermann's support allowed the Prussians to lure a number of above-average attackers into the Münsterland, which in 1950/51 became legendary as the “100,000 mark storm”. These were right winger Felix "Fiffi" ​​Gerritzen from VfB Oldenburg , who was not only able to convert corners directly against Austria in 1951 , Dortmund Borussia and later record shooter Dortmund Alfred "Adi" Preißler , center forward Rudi Schulz , left winger Josef "Jupp" Lammers and half-striker " Sigi “Rachuba ( SpVgg Erkenschwick ), then Friedel Weghorst and from 1952 Werner Erb , who soon returned to Altona 93 .

The players later denied having received that much money. Adi Preissler remembered a gas station that he could lease, but with which no money could be made because of the gasoline rationing at the time; and Gerritzen said: “After the training we got a bottle of milk and a sausage with potato salad. That cost 1.90 DM, and they were also counted towards our contract player salary until we went to the barricades against it. ” The catchy phrase“ 100,000 mark storm ”probably goes back to a journalist who used it to describe the value of the attack series wanted, which reached its sporting climax with reaching the championship final in 1951.

With Siegfried Rachuba, who wore the Prussian dress from 1949 to 1959, a member of this series of attacks is Münster's most successful first division shooter of all time; he scored 97 goals in 238 league games and four of the 23 Prussian goals in the final round of the 1951 German championship.

German runner-up, founding of the Bundesliga and relegation

In the 1950/51 season, the team came in second in the Oberliga West, one point behind FC Schalke 04 . In the subsequent group matches for the German championship, Preußen Münster eliminated 1. FC Nürnberg , Hamburger SV and Tennis Borussia Berlin . At the last group home game against Nuremberg with well over 40,000 spectators, the all-time attendance record was probably set in the Prussian Stadium; it ended 6: 4. In order to win the group in the last game and thus move into the final of the German championship, the SCP had to win against Tennis Borussia in Berlin and make up for the worse goal difference compared to 1. FC Nürnberg. The Prussians won against TeBe after a 2-0 deficit 8-2 and made it into the final. The team was received in Münster as if they had already become German champions. At least 23,000 people crowded the Prinzipalmarkt in Münster to see the team. In the final in front of 100,000 spectators at the Olympiastadion Berlin against 1. FC Kaiserslautern , Gerritzen brought Prussia into the lead shortly after the start of the second half. Two goals by Ottmar Walter , three years later world champion with Germany, finally ensured the 2-1 victory and thus the first championship of the Palatinate.

In the league season 1953/54 Prussia managed again a fourth place, otherwise the team only reached places in the midfield. For numerous observers, it was all the more surprising that Münster was accepted into the newly founded Bundesliga in 1963 .

In 1962, the team made a trip to South America and won it against the national teams of Chile and Argentina 3-0 and 2-1. In May and June 1963, Preußen Münster was one of 14 clubs from just as many countries to take part in the fourth of six international soccer league games in the USA. With three wins and three losses, Prussia finished fifth in the group of seven participants led by overall winner West Ham United FC .

Dieter Stosberg played for Preußen Münster from 1966 to 1973

On August 24, 1963, Prussia split 1-1 from Hamburger SV in its first Bundesliga match in front of 38,000 spectators in the sold-out Prussian stadium. This made the stadium in Münster the first sold-out stadium in the history of the Bundesliga. Falk Dörr brought the people of Münster in the lead after 72 minutes, but they had to accept the equalizer from Charly Dörfel eight minutes later . Already after the first half of the season Prussia finished 15th and penultimate place and at the end of the season the Münster team was separated by a point from 14th place. The highest victory was a 3-0 win at VfB Stuttgart on matchday 20, while a 0-5 at the start of the second half in Hamburg of a series of five defeats in a row represented the highest defeat. Hermann Lulka was with nine goals ahead of Manfred Rummel with seven goals the best goalscorer of the Prussians, who were instructed by Richard Schneider , who was the master coach in Kaiserslautern at the beginning of the 1950s.

After relegation, Prussia did not get beyond mediocrity in the Regionalliga West and sometimes even relegation worries arose. The number of viewers stagnated at a low level. The best placement was fifth place in 1973/74 in the last season of the old regional league. The five regional leagues were then transferred to the two-pronged 2. Bundesliga, for whose northern season Prussia qualified.

In 1966 the SC Preußen Münster celebrated its 60th anniversary. On this occasion, a. hosted a friendly against FC Bayern Munich , which Prussia Münster won 2-1.

Second Bundesliga, relegation and promotion

The best chances of returning to the Bundesliga were in 1976, 1978 and 1979, when Prussia was third in the 2. Bundesliga North and thus missed the relegation games for promotion to one place. Particularly remembered was the 4: 1 against direct promotion rivals Borussia Dortmund in pouring rain in front of over 40,000 spectators in the overcrowded Prussian stadium on the fourth last match day in 1975/76. However, a draw and a defeat in the last two games of the season put an end to hopes.

In 1978, President Günter Wellerdieck and other members of the Board of Directors resigned from their offices after a black card affair and disclosed tax arrears of the association and left the SCP with a mountain of debt of around 3 million D-Marks, which, through a comparison and great commitment of the Münster population, rose to 700,000 D-Mark could be lowered. However, this meant the end of the SCP's ambitions for advancement.

For the 1981/82 season, the DFB introduced the single-track 2nd Bundesliga. With the 13th place in the preseason, Münster could not qualify for this and was third class for the first time.

After six unsuccessful attempts, SC Preußen became champions of the Oberliga Westfalen in 1988 , but failed in the promotion round to the 2nd Bundesliga to Hertha BSC and Eintracht Braunschweig .

In 1989, the Prussians managed to defend their title in the Oberliga under Helmut Horsch with a goalless draw on the last game day at SC Verl and a simultaneous defeat of the previous front-runner Arminia Bielefeld at VfB Rheine . After a 0-0 win in the decisive game of the promotion round in the Preußenstadion against MSV Duisburg , SC Preußen rose again to the 2nd Bundesliga . For the new season, Horsch left Prussia and switched to the Westphalia Football Association. Elmar Müller followed him into the coaching chair.

The following second division season closed Münster as twelfth in the table. Prussia managed to beat FC Schalke 04 both at home (2-1) and away (1-0) this year . In the current season, due to the lack of success, a coach change from Elmar Müller to Ernst Mareczek , previously Sports Director at the Eagle Bearers.

Relegation to third and fourth class

The following year, there was great disillusionment with the descent. While Gerd Roggensack was still hopefully a renowned coach and Harald Kügler an accomplished second division player, the Prussians did not succeed in playing football successfully. In the spring of 1991, Siegfried Melzig was therefore hired as the supposed savior. However, he was just as unsuccessful in keeping the class with the Prussians; Prussia rose as table eighteenth again from the Oberliga Westfalen .

In the two following seasons, the SC Preußen was each champion, but failed in the promotion rounds at Wuppertaler SV and Rot-Weiss Essen . In 1994, second place was enough to qualify for the newly founded Regionalliga West / Südwest . In the same year Münster won the German amateur championship after a 1-0 win in the final against Kickers Offenbach . In the following six seasons in the regional league, SC Prussia was mostly mediocre. Nevertheless, with 306 points from 206 games, the club was "eternal leader" of this league, which was dissolved in 2000.

For the 2000/01 season, the DFB introduced a new two-track regional league. SC Preußen was able to qualify on the last match day of the preseason with a 4-1 win over SC Verl in front of over 10,000 spectators and was assigned to the Regionalliga Nord .

In the very first season, the club was close to returning to the 2nd division . But on the penultimate matchday it was not possible to take a 1-0 lead at direct promotion competitor Fortuna Köln over time and so the team was dependent on support from other clubs, which failed to materialize.

In the following seasons, Preußen Münster was regularly involved in the relegation battle. In 2002 the class was only held because only one team from the 2nd Bundesliga had to be relegated to the Regionalliga Nord and the number of relegated teams there was reduced from four to three. In 2004 they succeeded in relegation on the last day of the game in a relegation final against Wattenscheid 09 , which had to go to the league after the Prussians won 1-0 . The motto “Men, you have to burn” was specially issued for this game and Martin Hauswald scored the decisive goal in the 45th minute to save 10,200 spectators .

At the beginning of 2005 the chairman of the board Thomas Herda, who had been in office since October 1991, and his treasurer Hermann Brück were replaced by a team of four led by the new president Marco de Angelis. New impulses should be given to prevent the further decline of the SCP. For the 2005/06 season Colin Bell took over the coaching post from Hans-Werner Moors . Moors, who was the Prussian coach for the third time and who had also played for the SCP during his active time, did not fit into the concept of the new club management. In November 2005 Bell was dismissed after unsuccessfulness and his predecessor returned during the winter break to take a fourth seat in the coaching bench of SC Preußen. But even Moors could not prevent the SCP from relegating at the end of the 2005/06 season, exactly on the club's 100th birthday, after a 1: 2 defeat against Wuppertaler SV on the penultimate game day. The following 3-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen (A) couldn't turn the tide either. This was the first time in 100 years of club history that the Prussians were fourth class. In the 2006/07 league season, the desired immediate promotion to the regional league under coach Georg Kress was clearly missed with a 6th place.

The 2007/08 season was tackled under the new coach Roger Schmidt and with an almost completely changed squad. Since a promotion to a higher division was not possible due to the introduction of the third division this season, the goal was to qualify for the new fourth division regional league. This was achieved at an early stage. In addition, Preußen Münster secured the championship on the penultimate matchday with a 2-0 win in Hamm . In addition, the Association Cup and the District Cup were won, with which the Prussians qualified for the first main round of the DFB Cup for the first time since 1997 and only lost 5-6 on penalties to VfL Bochum in the Prussian Stadium, which has been sold out again for a long time. In the 2008/09 season , the Prussians played a good role in the fourth-class Regionalliga West , but without being able to intervene in the promotion battle. In the final table, Münster finally took fourth place. In addition, they won the Westphalia Cup again , so that the club was also represented in the first main round of the DFB Cup in the 2009/10 season . There they met Bundesliga club Hertha BSC in front of 18,200 spectators and only lost 3-1 after conceding two goals in the last two minutes of the extra time that had become necessary after a 1-1 after regular playing time. The city issued a special permit especially for this game in order to increase the audience capacity from 15,050 to over 18,000.

In the 2009/10 season, Münster was able to qualify for the DFB Cup for the third time in a row . There they met Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg in the first main round , but retired as in previous years. The game ended 1: 2 (0: 0) for Wolfsburg.

The team was named Team of the Year 2011, 2012 and 2014 by the Sports Association of the City of Münster at the Ball des Sports.

In the 2010/11 season, Preußen Münster, under coach Marc Fascher, was promoted to the 3rd league early on matchday 31 . After seven victories in a row, the Prussians not only secured promotion early in the game against the second representative of Borussia Mönchengladbach , they also set a new record in the Regionalliga West, which has been in existence since 2008, with 18,500 spectators (sold out) .

In the 2012/13 season, the club finished fourth in the table, one point behind the third place VfL Osnabrück. Furthermore, the Bundesliga club SV Werder Bremen was defeated 4-2 in the first round of the DFB Cup after extra time. In the first round of the DFB Cup 2013/14 , the second division FC St. Pauli was defeated 1-0 and the club reached 6th place at the end of the season.

In the years 2012 to 2014 there were frequent reports of riots by the supporters of the association. In particular, with 27 incidents involving pyrotechnic objects, more incidents were counted in this period than any other German professional association. For these 27 crimes alone, the club had to pay more than 60,000 euros to the DFB, which, like the police and regulatory authorities, placed the club under strict observation and imposed conditions. Prussia Munster reacted by tightening the measures to maintain stadium security, which met with displeasure among some of the fans. Parts of the catalog of measures were withdrawn after a short time after fan protests.

On matchday 10, 2015/16, the fans from Münster were banned from watching the derby at VfL Osnabrück. The security authorities, together with both clubs and the DFB, took this measure, as pyrotechnics were used on both sides in the past. The alternative to excluding the Prussian fans would have been requirements such as personalized tickets, no free choice of route and a strict reduction in the number of tickets. This was not a serious option for SC Prussia. After the exclusion was announced, the Osnabrück fan scene decided to boycott the mood. The Münster fan project registered a demonstration on match day to demonstrate against the exclusion of guests. The desired route should go through downtown Osnabrück. The Higher Administrative Court in Lüneburg prohibited this at short notice and only allowed a rally on the station forecourt. This went off peacefully with 450 participants.

At the end of the third division 2019/20 season , SC Preußen Münster under coach Sascha Hildmann was relegated to the fourth-class Regionalliga West again after ten years . This ended the renewed period of professional football at the SCP after a decade .

Change in the management level of the association

On October 13, 2016, the new club management was announced at a press conference. The former SPD member of the Bundestag, Christoph Strässer, succeeded the resigned President Georg Krimphove . The long-time chairman of the supervisory board, Thomas Bäumer, who had also made his post available, was replaced by the managing director of Coler GmbH, Fabian Roberg. Members of the supervisory board included the former SC Preußen players Jochen Terhaar and Christoph Metzelder . The board positions in sports and finance have also been filled. With Walther Seinsch a comrade could be won for the field of sport, who had already attracted attention in German football through his involvement with FC Augsburg . Martin Jostmeier was appointed Chief Financial Officer. In addition, the post of newcomers to the Executive Board was created and taken over by Bernhard Niewöhner.

On October 28th, the long-time director of sport, Carsten Gockel, announced his immediate departure. After the restructuring at the management level of the SCP, his tasks in the sporting area were already taken over by Walther Seinsch. Gockel's work area was therefore limited to managing the office. After ten years of sporting responsibility, Gockel switched to the private sector. On November 20, Fabian Roberg announced that he was stepping down as chairman of the supervisory board. As a reason, he cited a lack of basic trust in the club's committees. Subsequently, the previous supervisory board no longer joined. At the annual general meeting on December 5, 2016, a new six-member supervisory board was elected. Walther Seinsch was appointed to these, who gave up his previous position as head of sport. For the first time, Friedrich Lukas, a fan representative, became a member of the supervisory board.

In February 2017, ex-professional Malte Metzelder was announced as the new sporting director and branch manager. As of April 1, 2017, he took over the tasks that Carsten Gockel carried out before his departure.

After the relegation of SC Prussia from the third division at the end of the 2019/20 season, Metzelder resigned as sporting director and was replaced by ex-professional Peter Niemeyer , who signed a three-year contract.

Change of legal form

The club leadership led by Strässer and Seinsch, who started in October 2016, took up their positions with the firm goal of professionalising SC Preußen Münster and its structures. In addition to a significant improvement in the infrastructural possibilities and the construction of a new stadium, it was essential for the management team to outsource the professional sporting area to a corporation. With the help of an auditing company, a future construct was worked on over a period of months. The favored corporate form of those responsible was ultimately the limited liability company and the company limited partnership on shares ( GmbH & Co. KGaA ). On 14 January 2018, the repeatedly postponed Extraordinary General Meeting was finally convened to discuss the change of the legal form of a registered association ( eV tune) to a GmbH & Co. KGaA. Of more than 850 voting members present, 84.21 percent voted in favor of a spin-off. This clearly exceeded the required majority of 75 percent. The spin-off to Sportclub Preußen Münster 06 GmbH & Co. KGaA was completed on February 28, 2018 . Malte Metzelder , who had been sports director and branch manager in the e.V. structure , was appointed managing director of the general partner , Sportclub Preußen Münster 06 Geschäftsführungs-GmbH , who is authorized to manage the company and is fully liable . In mid-May, the previous member of the Presidium, Bernhard Niewöhner, was appointed provisional managing director of the company's commercial area, which allowed Metzelder to concentrate more on his area of ​​responsibility as managing director for the sporting area. With the new office, Niewöhner automatically resigned from the Presidium. He was replaced by Burkhard Brüx, who took over responsibility for "Fans" from Siggi Höing.

Participation in the DFB Cup


The majority of the sports club's active fan scene is based in Block O. The association has its own fan department, the fan project Münster e. V. , which works as an umbrella organization for fan issues in the club. Furthermore, bus trips to away games, campaigns for charity and events for fans are organized and the fan radio Radio Mottekstrehle is operated.

The number of viewers at SC Preußen has developed very positively in recent years. While an average of between 2,600 and 4,600 spectators found their way to the Prussian Stadium in the fourth division seasons, the average in the promotion season has already increased to 5640 spectators. In the third division , a further increase to the club's best in the third division of 8,992 spectators in the 2012/13 season was recorded. This value was exceeded in the following season when the average reached around 9200 viewers. In the 2014/15 season, the SCP sold over 5,000 season tickets, setting a club record.

The derbies against Arminia Bielefeld and VfL Osnabrück are particularly important to the fans. Due to the frequent clashes of clubs in the third division in recent years, the stadiums of which are located at a distance of 65 kilometers, the term the Bermuda Triangle of the third division was invented. In 2015, director Milan Skrobanek dedicated the documentary Im Derby-Dreieck to the three clubs and their environment . Among other things, Skrobanek accompanied the Münster fan scene and the fan radio in the 2014/2015 season. Another rivalry exists with Rot-Weiss Essen .

At the ultra level there are friendly contacts with the fan scenes of Heracles Almelo , Sporting Charleroi , Pescara Calcio , VfL Bochum and Girondins Bordeaux .

The club has (as of December 10, 2020) 2,000 members.

Panorama photo of the Prussian stadium before the renovation (2007)

The club's soccer games are played in the Preußenstadion on Hammer Straße. The current capacity, which has been continuously reduced due to the increasing dilapidation of the stadium, is 15,000 spectators. With a special permit, the capacity for top games can be increased to 18,000 spectators. The club would prefer to do without that in the future, as the stadium reaches its limits with this capacity.

After the SCP had played on Hammer Strasse since 1926, the stadium was expanded into one of the most beautiful and modern arenas in western Germany from 1948. The capacity was 40,000 spectators in the 1950s; a “Preußenstadion” stop of the Deutsche Bundesbahn was even set up in Münster, which was unique at the time. In the following decades, however, they failed to keep the stadium up to date.

Since the 1980s, a rebuilding or new construction of the Preußenstadion in Münster has been discussed, especially after promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga in 1989. In December 2000, the Preußen-Park project finally failed .

From November 2008 to May 2009, most of the stadium was under renovation. A grandstand conversion by Walter Hellmich Baugesellschaft had already been considered safe when the building contractor jumped out due to increased raw material prices on the grounds that he could not meet the budgeted construction costs. Shortly afterwards, the Paderborn-based Bremer AG agreed to implement the project.

During the renovation, the main grandstand built in 1948 could not be used. After completion, the grandstand will have 2,885 seats, including almost 800 business seats, various function rooms, press rooms and initially ten VIP boxes. The necessary renovation costs of € 4.8 million were borne by the city of Münster. For the home game against Eintracht Trier , part of the new grandstand was opened to spectators for the first time. The official inauguration took place on August 21, 2009 before the championship game against Schalke 04's second team. The back straight was roofed over in a construction project independent of the grandstand in November 2008 and now offers protection to around 5,000 spectators.

In the course of the other two renovation measures, a special construction company from Münster announced that it wanted to renovate the western curve, which had been closed for years, on its own and with financing. Although this project would not increase the stadium capacity due to some noise protection guidelines, the west curve would then offer more space for the spectators of the visiting clubs. However, the work was interrupted by the death of the building contractor, so that the west curve is only halfway renovated and has not yet been opened for spectators. In the opening game for the new 2010/11 season, the club presented an electronic and color display board for scores for the first time. The board was donated by the Hoesch company and replaced by a more modern model in the 2013/14 season. This scoreboard was also donated by a company, BK Media, as part of its sponsorship activities.

During the summer break before the start of the 2012/13 season, the more than 60-year-old turf, on which the Prussians played their first Bundesliga home game in 1963, was replaced and a new turf was laid. In the course of this, turf heating was also installed. The opening of the new field took place on July 28, 2012 during the first home game of the new 2012/13 season, a 1-0 win against Chemnitzer FC . On August 19, 2012, Preußen Münster celebrated one of the greatest successes in the club's recent history with the 4-2 win after extra time against Bundesliga club Werder Bremen in the DFB Cup .

Second team

The reserve of SC Preußen Münster rose in the year the Bundesliga was founded (1963) in the then fourth-class state league. After the crash in the mid-80s up to the district league A Münster, the direct return from 1986 to 1988 via the district league in the state league, which at that time was only fifth class. After 16 seasons for the first time in the 2002/03 season the championship and the jump into the then fifth-class association league succeeded. After another interlude in the regional league (2007-2009), he returned to the association league, which was now officially known as the Westfalenliga and was only sixth class. Today's U23 played there from the 2009/10 season. In the 2019/20 season, he was promoted to the Oberliga Westfalen as champions of season 1 .

Other departments

Even if the Sportclub Preußen Münster is known nationwide primarily as a football club, other sports such as tennis, athletics, handball and fistball are also practiced in the club .


The relatively small handball department with currently three teams competes with the DJK SV Borussia 07 Münster in a syndicate as HSG Preußen Borussia Münster . The first men's team was able to qualify for the Münsterland district league for the first time in the 2016/17 season.


For decades, SC Preußen Münster has been one of the larger athletics clubs in Münster. In the 1960s , the long-distance runner Harald Norpoth won four of his German championship titles in the Prussian jersey and four more as an athlete in the LG Ratio Münster. In the 1960s there were also athletics festivals with more than 10,000 spectators in the Prussian stadium. However, the cinder track was never replaced by a plastic track and after the construction of the main grandstand this would no longer be possible due to the available space.

The athletes of the Prussians competed from 1970 to 2012 in a starting and training community with other clubs from Münster and the surrounding area as LG Ratio Münster . Since January 1, 2013, the athletics department of the Prussians was independent again when it left the LG Ratio. At the beginning of 2020, the athletes will rejoin the athletics community , which is now called LG Brillux Münster after the sponsorship change .

The outstanding athletes of SC Preußen included the U20 European Champion 2011 and German Champion 2015 in the long jump, Lena Malkus , who started for the club until the end of 2018. The sprinter Tatjana Pinto (European champion 2012 in the 4 x 100 meter relay) was a member of SC Preußen until December 31, 2012.


Shortly after the club was founded, a tennis department was set up in 1908/09 . The courts and the clubhouse are located right next to the Prussian stadium.
