Holstein Kiel are a club from the northern port city of Germany in the state of Schleswig-Holstein, whose flag is blue, red and white ( like our three kits)
The city of Kiel has a population of just under 250,000 and is home to various things water related, ship building, Germany's Navy, international sailing competitions and ferries on to Sweden, Norway and Lithuania.
Until 1864 Kiel used to be ruled by the Danish king even though it was still part of Germany.
The football club Holstein Kiel in recent times has been on the up with a 3rd place finish in Bundesliga 2 last season being the highest finish in modern German football. They did once win a national German championship in 1912.
The club play at Holstein-Stadion which has a capacity of 11,386 (2,634 Seated) given the cities size I feel this is very small, but given the limited success of the club maybe we dont have a massive fanbase. Our training facilities facilities are adequate and our youth setup is average. So there is work off and on the pitch to help this club get into the professional era of Bundesliga.
The board expects us to finish midtable in the league this season. In the German cup we are only expected to get to the 2nd round. These aims seem realistic.
We have 9 million balance and 225k to spend to help us this season. But I will most likely exploit loans and frees this season!
The squad upon my arrivial already had a large number of loans in already but I also wanted to bring in some english youngsters just like the Bundesliga has been doing in real life.
