Füchse Berlin Reinickendorf are a professional handball club from Berlin, Germany, that currently compete in the Handball-Bundesliga, the highest national league.

History[edit]

Until 2005, the club was organized as handball department of Reinickendorfer Füchse. For the 2005–06 season, the branding was changed to Füchse Berlin, in an effort to establish the club as a leading sports team of Berlin alongside Hertha BSC (football), Eisbären Berlin (ice hockey) and Alba Berlin (basketball). This coincided with the move to Max-Schmeling-Halle (Berlin's second biggest indoor sports venue), which is dubbed Fuchsbau (burrow in English). In 2007, the Füchse secured the championship in the Zweite Handball-Bundeliga, the second highest German league, thus advancing to Handball-Bundesliga, which the club has stayed in ever since. In 2014 the team won the DHB Cup, its first major trophy.
