A new beginning for a club with plenty of history. Fortuna Cologne have reinvented themselves as internet team deinfussballclub.de.
A democratic experiment in which the eleven thousand members are also the managers. They choose the team, decide on transfers and on sponsoring contracts. The former second division club rapidly slipped down to the fifth division after 2000. Now they want to claw their way back. Kick Off! was there on the very first day of the new era when Fortuna faced Aachen II.
