Ulrich "Uli" Hesse (born 1966 in Dortmund) is a German freelance journalist, editor and author.

Life and work[edit]

He graduated from Bochum University in 1994, having written his M.A. thesis about baseball.[1] He has covered popular music for fanzines and magazines, such as the German edition of Rolling Stone,[2] but primarily writes about sports, predominantly (association) football.

Hesse has published articles in newspapers and magazines in a variety of countries, including England, United States, Sweden, Japan and Israel,[3] and was the editor of the German-language edition of "Champions", the official UEFA Champions League magazine,[4] for which he worked as a contributing editor until the publication's demise in 2015. Since 2002, he is a regular columnist for ESPN FC (formerly ESPNsoccernet),[5] which has been called the world's most popular football website. In September 2016, he joined the editorial staff of 11 Freunde magazine, Germany's biggest football monthly.

So far, Hesse has published nine books. "Tor! The Story of German Football" (2002)[6] was the first extensive English-language history of German football and has since been translated into Japanese, Danish and Polish. Two of his German-language books were nominated for the Football Book of the Year Award.[7]

Hesse is a Borussia Dortmund season ticket holder. He has listed the novelty song "Jilted John" by Jilted John as his all-time favourite 7" A-side and the punk rock classic "Born to Lose" by the Heartbreakers as the greatest-ever 7" B-side.[8][8][9] For more than a decade he published as "Hesse-Lichtenberger", a name acquired through marriage. In October 2009 he went back to his birth name and now usually publishes as Uli Hesse.
