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. Is it time for the fans to start dreaming? With three-quarters of the season done, Union find themselves in 3rd place, just three points behind the automatic promotion spots. 2nd place Hamburg head to the capital on April 28, for what will be a monumentally important clash.
