Karlsruher Sport Club, Karlsruhe
The local soccer club of Karlsruhe is called the KSC - Karlsruher Sport Club. They have had their ups and downs during the past decade, but their fans are great and support their team - no matter how good or bad they play.
When I first wrote this tip (2006/2007) the KSC had done exceptionally well, so we had high hopes that they might make it to the 1st division again next season! Now, some 5 years later, we find the KSC in the 3rd division.... And still the fans are supportive as ever!
Equipment: The local stadium is called Wildpark Stadion and it will be rebuilt/renovated shortly. It can seat over 30000 people so far and is mainly used for soccer matches.
Wild Park! Before you think they have lots of Football (Soccer) Hooliganism – they don’t. No the stadium was named for the lovely deer habitat they dug up in 1955 to build this concrete monolith that can house 32,306. For those actually hoping for violence on the terraces – only 14,724 screaming fans are seated. This allows for all sorts of issues like being crushed in a crowd surge. Karlsruher SC, members of the Bundesliga, play here.
Equipment: You need some balls.
Go see a match while here in Karlsruhe. Can be lots of fun even if they are not the greatest team.
Equipment: Looking for a KSC Scarf. If you can get me one please email.
UPDATE: I got it. Thank you Janet and Pasquali
