ALBA Berlin, one of the top basketball clubs of the country and winner of countless national championships, promotes Footbag as a fun and healthy activity for elementary school kids in a series of videos on their YouTube channel. For the final installment, FC Footstar’s Felix and Yves showcase a few advanced moves. Enjoy! (FC Footstar segment starts about 12 minutes in)
Classic Video from 2004: GFO’04 – Shreds
This sideline shred video from German Footbag Open 2004 in Frankfurt/Main features FC Footstar members alongside top players from all over Europe. It was also produced by Sebastian Wäscher of Dexterity Dortmund footbag club.
Classic Video from 2004: GFO’04 – One Drop
Again, not a FC Footstar production, but surely worth watching: Tournament footage from German Footbag Open 2004 in Frankfurt/Main. In this showcase event players were given one attempt for their best run on stage.
This video was produced and released in July 2004 by Sebastian Wäscher of Dexterity Dortmund footbag club.
Classic Video from 2004: Der Ball (Swiss Production)
Although not a FC Footstar production, this video is too memorable to remain offline forever. Just see for yourself how this couple’s picnic turns surreal, and what Footbag has got to do with it.
Produced by Jörg Brönnimann and Patrick Pfister, Footbag by Samuel Hufschmidt, Switzerland.
Classic Video from 2004: Berlin-Wilanow
In the Winter of 2003, Wiktor Dębski – now director of the International Footbag Player’s Association – and his wife (then girlfriend) Gosia Dębska came to visit Berlin. He released this video in February 2004.
Classic Video from 2003: MTV Television Report feat. Nora Tschirner
In 2003, the former Music Television came to visit one of FC Footstar’s weekly outdoor sessions at the old YAAM location. None other than Nora Tschirner, who would later become one of Germany’s most popular actresses, can be seen here earning her spurs in front of the camera.
Classic Video from 2003: Berlin (School Project)
This video was shot and edited in early 2003 by Max Kerkhoff for an high school class. It is one of his first ever video projects, including clips from FC Footstar training sessions as well as competition footage from Todexon tournament in Prague featuring Ryan Mulroney, Vasek Klouda and Jan Weber.
Classic Video from 2003: FC Footstar’s 5th Anniversary
This is a series of videos showing highlights from the weekend of FC Footstar’s 5th anniversary in January 2003, featuring shred and shenanigans by FC Footstar members and visiting players from Prague, including Ales Zelinka and Vasek Klouda.
These videos were shot and edited by our friend Fabian Kollakowski, who passed away in 2016. The individual clips are joined into one single video here.
Only the compressed files remained available, so the quality isn’t all that great, but the footage is surely worth watching.
Classic Videos from 2002: Website Teaser and Profile Videos
Shot in 2002, this video was an early teaser for a bunch of videos (see below) that were to be released on fcfootstar.de. It was produced by the late Fabian Kollakowski, who remains unforgotten.
Beware of the pixels!
This is a series of clips that were shot and edited in early 2002 by Fabian Kollakowski and released later that year. For your convenience, they are combined into a single video here. There is no sound track on this one.
Classic Video from 2001: Fresh and Clean
In 2001, Ryan Mulroney (now Donohoe) visited Berlin, at that time World Champion of Footbag Freestyle. Also came Chris Löw and Sebastian Kleinichen from Frankfurt, the latter of which produced this video. It can be considered the first shred video to ever come out of Berlin (who needs HD resolution, anyways?):
