Named after a steam ship upon its founding in 1892, Hertha Berlin is the most prominent football export from the German capital. Their two championships in 1930 and 1931 came before the Bundesliga era.
A member of the inaugural Bundesliga, Hertha had their most successful years in the 1970s, reaching the German Cup finals twice and the UEFA Cup semifinals once.
