Marc Pfitzner (born 28 August 1984 in Braunschweig) is a German footballer who currently plays for Eintracht Braunschweig in the Bundesliga.[2]

Career[edit]

Pfitzner started out playing as an amateur in the 8th tier Kreisliga Braunschweig for TSV Timmerlah, before moving on to two other local amateur clubs, SV Broitzem and FT Braunschweig.[1] He joined Eintracht Braunschweig's reserve team in 2005. Having already given up on a professional career, he finally made the jump into Eintracht Braunschweig's first team in 2007, at the age of 23.[3] Since then he has become a regular first team player, appearing in over 160 league games over the last seven seasons. With Braunschweig, Pfitzner worked his way up from the 3. Liga to the 2. Bundesliga in 2011, and finally to the Bundesliga in 2013. On 29 September 2013, Pfitzner made his debut in the Bundesliga in a game against VfB Stuttgart,[4] making him the rare case of a player who made it from the Kreisliga all the way up to the Bundesliga.[3][5]
