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.
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.
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.
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.
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?):
This video should be the first to ever be released about footbag in Berlin, and one of the – if not the – first German TV reports about our sport. Shot in 2000 at the old YAAM location just outside Arena, it features some of the club’s early members and their unique tricks (watch until the end!) as well as some highly misleading commentary. Enjoy!
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!
Every year at the World Footbag Championships, there is a public screening of footbag videos that are made exclusively for this occasion. Here’s the video contest entries of two FC Footstar members, Mikko Lepistö and Matthias Schmidt, so turn up your speakers:
