The Bundesliga 'dinosaur'


The biggest club in Germany's second city, Hamburger SV are an institution in German football and one that oozes tradition. They were founding members of the Bundesliga and remain the only ever-present club in the top tier despite coming close to relegation in 2014, escaping via the relegation play-offs. Dominant in the northern regional leagues before the Bundesliga's inception, HSV enjoyed their most fruitful years on the national scene in the 1970s and 1980s but their form has dropped in recent years.
