Hamburg Dockers

Der Klub in Hamburg wurde 2003 durch Fabian Cordts, Fritz Mehler, Marc Fairweather und Max Linek gegründet
und schloß sich in diesem Jahr der AFLG an. Man zog einige Vereinsnamen in Erwägung, u.a. Hamburg Foxes.
In der größten Hafenstadt Deutschlands gelegen, entschied man sich aber schließlich für Hamburg Dockers. Seit 2015 ist der Verein offzieller Partnerclub der Fremantle Dockers aus der australischen Profiliga AFL
Seit 2018 haben die Dockers auch eine Damen-Mannschaft.

The Hamburg club formed in 2003 by Fabian Cordts, joining the AFLG in that season. The club considered a number of names, including the Hamburg Foxes, but being located in Germany’s largest port city eventually settled on the name Hamburg Dockers. Ironically, they wore the jumpers of the Fremantle Dockers‘ biggest traditional rivals, the West Coast Eagles, for the first two years of existence, finally receiving a set of Fremantle’s all-purple alternative jumpers for the 2005 season.

The Hamburg Football Club went through its first two seasons in the AFLG winless, but started their 2005 campaign in fine fashion with their first-ever win – a 155-23 away drubbing of the Düsseldorf Lions, becoming a strong footballing outfit over the course of their third season.

After a year off in 2010, the Dockers came back for the 2011 AFLG Season. A rebuilt team, plenty of new talent at the old turf in Stadtpark with 2 big victories at the end of the 2011 season defeating the Frankfurt Redbacks and Stuttgart Emus.
