Football Cooperation Berlin

Our Network

One of 1.FC Union Berlin's training objectives is to offer the best football coaching to highly talented players from the Berlin/Brandenburg region. Our cooperation with partners and partner clubs plays an important role here.

The Football Cooperative Berlin has been in existence since 1. January 2015 and supports daily training and competition activities in the academy. All our partners are committed to our training for high-level competition. To this end, they contribute extensive expertise and create optimal conditions for our players' daily football activities.

The targeted strengthening of selected clubs in and around Berlin increases the efficiency of our philosophy and allows more young players to participate. These long-term and sustainable partnerships are not a one-way street, they have a positive effect on the region, creating identification while promoting competitive and popular sports.
