Nicknamed Eisern Union (Iron Union), FC Union is traditionally the working man's Berlin team, originating in East Berlin in 1966 and often a counterweight to the GDR's state-influenced (and very much unloved) Dynamo club. Union is still fiercely independent, based in a charming stadium, An der Alten Försterei. The club has resisted all commercialism, with a club anthem sung by punk legend Nina Hagen, and a stadium partly owned by passionate fans. They just missed out on promotion from the 2. Bundesliga in 2017 and had high hopes for 2018. Alas despite starting the season well their form slipped and from possible promotion contenders they ended up only narrowly escaping relegation. With a new coach, Urs Fischer, they will be hoping for a better 2018-19.
