The club named after a ship...


Hertha was a steamship that cruised the Havel River. It so impressed young Fritz Lindner that when he formed a football club in 1892 he took not only the name of the ship, but also its blue and white livery. 

Berliner Fußball-Club Hertha 92 was founded on 25.07.92 by Fritz and his brother Max and the Lorenz brothers, Otto and Willi. These were 16-17 year old youths.
In 1900 the club were founder members of the Deutscher Fußball-Bund .
