Sören Halfar (born January 2, 1987 in Hanover ) is a former German football player .


The left-back began his career at the DJK TuS Marathon Hannover and TSV Havelse , before moving to the youth team at Hannover 96 . From the A-Juniors he went to the amateur team of the Bundesliga club in 2004. Shortly afterwards, he was taken to the professional team's training camp. He earned his place in the squad through solid performances. When the seeded left-back colleague and mentor Michael Tarnat had to sit out longer due to injury, Halfar's place in the first eleven was vacated. He mastered these seven games solidly and fairly clear, whereby his acceleration and ball agility were noticeable. After Tarnat's recovery, the youngster moved back into the second tier.

As a youth player, Halfar received special honors: In 2005, as a U-18 player, he was awarded the Fritz Walter Medal in silver.

On August 29, 2007 Hannover 96 announced that Halfar would be loaned to SC Paderborn 07 in the 2nd Bundesliga until the end of the season. For the 2008/09 season he dissolved his contract with Hannover 96 and stayed with the Paderborn team, who had been relegated to the third division . After the end of the 2009/10 season , his contract with Paderborn was no longer extended.

At the beginning of June 2010 it was announced that Halfar was moving to Wacker Burghausen in League 3 . He received a contract in Burghausen until the end of the 2010/2011 season . In the summer of 2011, Halfar moved to SV Sandhausen and signed a two-year contract there. The Lower Saxony left-back was a regular player until the winter break, when he had to undergo a groin operation that cost him the rest of the season. Even without his help, the club achieved the third division championship and thus promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga. There Halfar only came to seven missions, after which he ended his career due to an injury in the summer of 2013.

On July 28th, 2015 Sören Halfar became assistant coach at his youth club TSV Havelse, which plays in the Regionalliga Nord .


  • Promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga with SV Sandhausen in 2012
