Happy New Year to all the Footbag family, and everybody else! May 2022 finally bring an end to the pandemic (fingers crossed). Also, get vaccinated!

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)

January 12th, 2019, marks the 21st anniversary of our clubs’s official formation. In celebration of finally having reached legal drinking age in the United States, we will be publishing classic photos and videos from our archives over the course of the next weeks, not necessarily in chronological order. To begin with, here’s a photo from (presumably) the foundation meeting in January 1998. Just one of the guys in the photo is still active, can you find out who it is?
(Sorry for potato quality, it was 1998 after all. Also, ignore table contents and wall decoration, please.)
The year 2018 went by as quickly as ever, so let’s take some time to look back at it from a FC Footstar perspective. Our 20th anniversary, World and European Championships, and why there were no German Championships for the first time since 1999 are the subjects we want to explore in this post. …read more!
There’s no doubt about it: Today’s session will be outside, and it will be hot. Sunscreen should be applied at all times. The loaction is right behind the Berlin Wall at Ostbahnhof, to find it just use the map on the event page.
It won’t be as hot as yesterday, and you might want to bring your sweater, but it certainly won’t rain, and it is always nicer to be outside. So today’s session will be at Volkspark Friedrichshain starting at about 2 pm. Check the map on the event page for a precise location marker!
The situation is currently being evaluated. We will let you know soon about today’s location!
That was a great first day of our 20th Anniversary event, and the weather played along nicely. Let’s hope it will be the same tomorrow. We will decide on the location in the morning, and post it here!
It is decided: The weather forecast tells us it won’t be raining until the evening, so we will have our first session of FC Footstar’s 20th Anniversary at Spreebogenpark, close to Berlin Central Station / Hauptbahnhof. Go to the event page for a map and more info. See you all there!
