Soccer career


In 1960 Rainer Lisiewicz began playing football under his first trainer, Max Richter, at BSG Empor Oschatz and in 1966 switched to the junior team at BSG Chemie Leipzig . For the 1968/69 season he was delegated to the first division club 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig and initially played in the fourth-class third team. When he made a positive impression in a training game with the second team in early 1969, coach Hans Studener gave him a chance in the league team. On February 22, 1969, the 1.71 meter tall Lisiewicz was substituted on in the match of the 15th matchday 1. FC Lok - BFC Dynamo (1: 2) in the 46th minute. By the end of the season, he was a total of nine times in the league, including two games over 90 minutes. Then Lok relegated to the GDR league , in which Lisiewicz did not play under the new coach Kurt Holke . After the immediate resurgence, Lok played in the top league again from 1970/71. At first, Lisiewicz again found no interest in Holke, only from matchday 16 he was used for the rest of the season in the league team and was most recently as a midfielder in the starting eleven. After Horst Scherbaum took over as coach for the 1971/72 season , Lisiewicz was able to establish himself permanently in the first team with 22 point matches. He usually played as a right striker, but was only substituted on several times or had to leave the field early. His five league goals , together with Hans-Bert Matoul, were the top scorer of the locomotive team.

In 1972/73 Lisiewicz was absent in the last third of the season and missed participation in the final of the GDR Football Cup (1. FC Magdeburg - 1. FC Lok 3-2), although he had previously played all four 1. FC Lok cup games had denied. During the 1973/74 season Lisiewicz finally established himself as the standard right winger of his team. At the same time he played a successful season in the 1973/74 UEFA Cup competition . Lok Leipzig reached the semi-finals after eight games and only failed there against Tottenham Hotspur with 1: 2 and 0: 2. Lisiewicz played all ten games and scored the 1-0 lead with his two goals in the games Lok - AC Turin (2: 1, 1st round) and Lok - Fortuna Düsseldorf (3: 0, round of 16).

With 24 and 25 point games, Lisiewicz played his most intense league seasons in 1974/75 and 1975/76. On May 1, 1976 he stood as a right winger with 1. FC Lok in the GDR Cup final and reached after the 3-0 victory over forward Frankfurt / O. the greatest success of his football career. In 1977 his career took a decisive turn. While he was still able to complete all 13 point games in the first half of the season, he then came only once on the penultimate match day as a substitute and only played 18 minutes of the 5th match day in the 1977/78 season. After this game he could look back on 143 league games with 22 goals, 24 GDR cup games with 4 goals and 12 European cup games with 2 goals.

For the season 1978/79 Lisiewicz moved at the age of 28 years to the league club Chemie Böhlen . There he rose again on the 9th game day in the league action and played all 18 point games by the end of the season, now as a midfielder. The chemists only landed on the penultimate place and had to play in the GDR league in 1979/80. Lisiewicz played 28 of the 30 championship games, scored six goals and was instrumental in the immediate resurgence. In 1980/81 he played his last season in competitive football. He was once again called up as a midfielder in 18 league point games. With his 36 league games for Chemie Böhlen, he increased his first division record to a total of 179 appearances and 22 goals.


During his time as a soccer player, Lisiewicz had already successfully completed a degree in sports teacher at the German University of Physical Culture in Leipzig. He used this after the end of his playing career to be able to continue to work in football. First he started in 1981 with the third-rate regional division Motor Geithain as a player-coach. In 1983 he switched to the league competitor Motor Grimma and led them to promotion to the GDR league within a year. Two years later, the team under Lisiewicz surprisingly reached fourth place in the GDR league. In 1987 he moved to BSG Chemie Buna Schkopau within the GDR league . He stayed there until 1993 after the restructuring in SV Merseburg 99 , before he returned to his old place of work in Grimma for the 1993/94 season. With young players from the region he had success after a certain start-up time and rose with SV Grimma in the 1996/97 season in the amateur league . He achieved relegation straight away with the team and was able to steadily increase the placements in the following years. So he led Grimma first in 7th place and then even 4th place in the 1999/00 season.

In the meantime, his former club Lok Leipzig had meanwhile transformed into VfB Leipzig , which went bankrupt in 2004 and was re-established in the same year as 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig . This had to start again in 2004/05 in the 11th league (3rd district class) and signed his former player Rainer Lisiewicz. He managed to bring the club into the fourth-class amateur league within four years. When 1. FC Lok gambled away their next promotion on matchday 26 after a 4-0 home defeat against ZFC Meuselwitz, Lisiewicz was given leave of absence. On October 6, 2009, he took on a new coaching position at the sixth-class national division club SV Naunhof 1920. For the 2011/12 season Lisiewicz took over the training of the Union Sandersdorf club. In December 2018 it was announced that he would again be head coach at 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig and that he had signed a contract until 2020. He was released at the end of October 2019 at the club, which was in 4th place in the table after eleven games, after the resignation of team boss Björn Joppe and replaced on an interim basis by sports director Wolfgang Wolf .
