    Great pictures, love it. However many of these teams would be semi-pro, surely?

    Hey Gav, I don’t think these teams are semi-pro, though maybe there is some crossover – looks like that’s possible with a couple of the games that do have quite a few folks. But the attendance listed for most of these games is listed in the single figures; these photos all come from fchmksfkcb’s “amateur football in Germany” collection – he also has an entire, separate collection for pro and semi-pro football in Germany as well.

    Gorgeous photos, congrats to the photographer. A nice insight into the lower levels of footy in Germany. (Brrrr at those snow scenes!)

    Interesting to see the grass roots level. Football as I remember it from being a young lad 😉
