The Berlin Adler have a long tradition in the German capital ever since the club was formed in 1979. The team started to play in the First National Football League before it joined the newly founded German Football League GFL in 2002. The ever growing Adler family consisting of over 400 players, coaches and members plus a large fan base play a big active part in the development of American football in Berlin and Germany.
Pride, honour and passion! These are the values Berlin Adler stand for. Under these themes the Berlin Adlers with their experienced coaches fight for optimum results. Every single one is aware of his role and their shared target of victory. Physical and mental fitness, talent, ambition and team spirit are basic preconditions for the players in our GFL-Team.
The maintenance of first-class performance and continuing success are provided by an intensive and successful youth program overseen by our excellent trained coaches.
In 1987 the Berlin Adler won their first national championship – further followed in 1989-1991, 2004 and 2009 in Berlin. As well as national, international championships have also been won: Eurobowl Championship in 2010 and to runners up as well as EFAF Cup Championship in 2008.
Also 2013 was a very satisfying year. The Berlin Adler just barely missed the final of the Germanbowl – with a nerve-racking game that went right to the last minute. Reaching of the semi-finals of the Eurobowl is also very satisfying, which was achieved through a spectacular game at home in the Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark.
The American Football Club Berlin Adler was founded in 1979 – back then under the name Berliner Bären and were lead by American soldiers, who were stationed in Berlin. To get an optimum structure the already 80 players became part of the large sport club BSC Wilmersdorf which since 1982 the club is known as Berlin Adler.
