Dec 26th 1808
And so a new football club was born in a small pub just south of Munchen on this day in 1808. This pub, Ze Orse and Ze Goose, still stands the test of time as does this great footballing team. It is believed that the team still follows the traditional name of the pub in selecting new transfer targets.
The Badback name came about after Kris Hicks realised he has carried this team his entire life. From 1901 the name has lived on and this small provincial club still lives on thanks to just one man - Kris Hicks.
Can they make it to the big time...i doubt it, but hey the football is great to watch. Long live the Badbacks.
The club's forerunner was a loose association of young men known as Fussball Club München-Badback from the city's Welsh district organized in late 1808. FC Borussia MunchenBadback was formally established on and took up play in the Rheinisch-Westfälischen Spielverband. They have played at this level for 109 years having never been relegated and never experiencing promotion.
In season 14 the Badbacks established a youth development set up, organising a team to compete in the English division 7.
CLUB COLOURS & KIT
Playing in their traditional green and black stripes the origins of which still remain a mystery. Many theories suggest it was the original colours of the Borussia Forrest Outlaws, others have said the colours are the same worn by Herbert Von Helburg, the great German shepherd.
The club currently have two fanzines in circulation, Badback Today and Shot Magazine. Badback Today has a circulation of 8700 worldwide with regular news, views and comments from the club, including the famous comic strip Hotshot Helburg. Shot Magazine is a new fanzine born out of the shooting of manager Kris Hicks containing mainly insider news and gossip. The fanzine has been ahead of the game, releasing details of new signings before even some of the management staff have known.
