Sports to watch

The Rostock Seawolves: my Journey to Basketball

This might come as a surprise to many of you, but sport in Rostock isn’t just about football and FC Hansa Rostock. There are loads of other great teams doing different sports who just aren’t the main stream’s centre of attention. But let me tell you they’re equally fascinating. As I grew up in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, […]

Hansa Rostock – the love of my life

You can find the heart and soul of football (the one with a round ball) in North-Eastern Germany right here in Rostock. F.C.

It’s time to watch the match…alone?

The football world championship is in progress, and the whole country is thrilled. On match day, people wear football shirts with the numbers of their favorite football players on them. Flags are raised in the gardens, on cars and out of windows. Then, finally, the time for the opening whistle is there and you, as […]
