Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 1. FC K ln is a German football club based in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia. It was formed in 1948 as a merger of the clubs K lner Ballspiel-Club 1901 and SpVgg S lz 07. The club's nickname Die Gei b cke ("The Billy Goats") refers to the club's mascot, a male goat named Hennes after the veteran FC player and (later) manager Hennes Weisweiler. The first Hennes was donated by circus entrepreneur as a carnival joke. Currently (since July 24, 2008) the eighth Hennes is the acting mascot. Another nickname, more common locally due to its ambiguity, is FC, a common German abbreviation for football clubs. Characteristic for the dialect spoken around Cologne, this is pronounced "EF-tsay," in contrast to the high language pronunciation of the abbreviation where the stress is on the "C."show more
