Berlin as Football Capital …?
Berlin football club Hertha BSC may not be the most well-known or successful team in Germany, but the capital is nonetheless big in the game. Back in 2008, Lucas von Cranach founded OneFootball in Berlin. The famous app provides fans with facts and figures such as live-scores, statistics and background information on all things football. Now, according to information from deutsche-startups, the company has received further funding. With financing to the tune of €150 M, its valuation is up to over a billion Euro, making it a unicorn. Along with investors, several clubs such as Bayern München, Chelsea, and Liverpool support OneFootball. And of course Fanzone, the blockchain-based fan app with digital NFT trading cards, is also a Berlin company.
