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 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?):


Classic Video from 2000: RTL Television Report

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!

21 years of FC Footstar, today!

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.)

Looking back at 2018

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!
