FC Spandau 06

Created in 2003 through a merger between the old Spandauer BC 1906 and 1.FC Spandau

Spanduaer BC was founded in 1906 as SC Britania Spandau. In 1919 they merged with Borussia Spandau and played as Hertha Spandau until 1923, when they became SBC. In 1945, the club was restarted as A Sportgruppe, before adopting the SBC name again in 1953.

1.FC Spandau was founded only in 1997 by the district mayor, a Werner Salomon. His idea was that the district, which "has double the population of Kaiserslautern, but no decent soccer club", would become a new force in Berlin football - and that all the "traditional" Spandau clubs, such as SSV,SBC,SSC etc. would merge into this new club. Nobody seemed too interested at first, with only Ruhlebener SC joining in 1999. However, you could certainly not fault them with ambition, as then manager Rolf Fringer stated "We want to become the 3rd power in Berlin after Hertha and Union." and Salomon laid down the law: "By 2010 we want to get promoted into the 2.Liga." Instead the club was 125,000 euros over budget and in chaos. At the annual meeting, Salomon had tears in his eyes when he announced the players wouldn't be paid. Only the merger with SBC saved things, and SBC president Elmar Koch became the new boss.
