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. What a time to be alive for fans of Union. The club secured its first promotion to the top tier after a nail-biting play-off with Stuttgart, and the fans will love every single second of this season. Two big matches against Hertha await, the derbies taking place on November 2 and March 23.
