FC Lausitz Hoyerswerda

The club was founded in 1991, as the successor to the old BSG Aktivist Schwarze Pumpe, which was started back in 1951. Success was modest, as they pretty much were limited to the 2nd division of GDR football, ocassionally slipping back down to the 3rd level.

After reunification, the club continued to play in the regional leagues, although they ocasionally threatened to break through to a higher level. The club was now known as FSV Hoyerswerda. Unfortunately, the efforts to get promoted had a disastrous effect on the club finances, and they were forced into bankruptcy proceedings. The club was restarted as FC Lausitz, and is struggling to keep from going under. The latest reports are that they seem to have stabilized at the lower regions of the local leagues. The club went without a win for "667 days", but it ended with a 2-1 win in a local derby against Einheit in late August 2005. Things are beginning to look up, as the club is actively building up it's youth resources.

Heroes OK, it depends on your perspective. Certainly most Wessis couldn't even find Hoyerswerda on a map. And probably most Ossis wouldn't want to find it. But in 2005, someone put the town on the map all across Germany. She was known as the Lausitz-Luder, basically some talentless bimbo who made a habit of stripping and generally acting like a whore on Germany's version of the crap "reality" series Big Brother. OK, she'd be a hero if she had an FC-Lausitz emblem tatooed on her derriere...As far as real heroes, one of the better ones was Waldemar "Waldi" Adamowicz, who led the club to their Oberliga title in 2000 and scored some 40 goals in 169 Oberliga matches. He took over as head coach in 2005.
Beer Wittichenauer Pils, from the local brewery.

The Net The original official site, www.fsv-hoyerswerda.de, was fairly complete and nicely done. It went belly up during bankruptcy. A new site was started as www.fclausitz.de An excellent fanpage, www.fansdesfsv.de is also worth checking out.
