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:

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.
At 11.30h, there will be a brunch at Yves’s place at Manteuffelstr. 103, U-Bahn Görlitzer Bahnhof.
Today’s session will be at Hasenheide, starting at 2 pm. See the map on the event page for the exact location.
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!
