FSV Gütersloh team visits the FC Gütersloh game in the Heidewaldstadion!

The two clubs are aiming to merge for the 2025/26 season – that’s when FSV Gütersloh came up with the idea of ​​paying FC Gütersloh a visit to its “living room”. Without further ado, the board of the men’s regional league team invited the women’s second division team to the home game on Friday evening against the U23s of FC Schalke 04 at the Ohlendorf Stadium in Heidewald. The response from the FSV footballers was overwhelming: 20 players expressed interest. “It is important to us to get to know the stadium, the atmosphere and the people at FC Gütersloh,” said captain Sarah Rolle, explaining why no player wanted to miss the chance to play in this floodlit game.

Head coach Britta Hainke played along and moved the training session forward in the East Sports Center so that everyone could be in the stadium on time for kick-off at 7:30pm. The FSV entourage, which included Chris Punnakkattu-Daniel, Tobias Neumann, Dennis Seelige and Wolfgang Temme as club representatives, took their seats in the main stand right next to “Hagedorn’s”. From there they saw Schalke take the lead in the 26th minute through Nelson Amadin. But they were also close when FC Gütersloh played for “their” goal in front of the clock in the second half and pushed for the equalizer with loud cheers from the fans. When Aleksandar Kandic deservedly scored in the 74th minute, the FSV players around Nele Schmidt, Maren Tellenbröker and Marie Schröder threw up their arms, as did most of the 1,560 spectators. Shpresa Aradini and Paula Reimann were then among those who would have liked to initiate a La-Ola, especially since “their” team was now in control and had a chance of scoring the second goal. Ronja Leubner, Lena Strothmann and Co. were all the more regretful when the Royal Blues scored a 3-1 victory in the final phase and FC Gütersloh had to postpone the celebration of staying in the league for the time being. In any case, the women witnessed a high-class regional league game. “The pace is enormous and the technical quality of the players is impressive,” marveled Leah Blome.

The successful “company outing” was rounded off by the fact that Sarah Rolle, Lea Bultmann and Lilly Stojan were able to have a nice chat with FCG board members Helmut Delker, Heiner Kollmeyer and Hans-Hermann Kirschner in the VIP room during the half-time break. It goes without saying that the FSV women were also able to enjoy FC Gütersloh’s hospitality at the bar. Of course, two days before the second division away game at SV Meppen, only non-alcoholic drinks were consumed.

FSV Gütersloh would be happy to return the favor. He therefore invited the FC Gütersloh regional league team to visit the Tönnies Arena for the last home game of the season on May 19 against FC Bayern Munich II. The FCG even advertised this game in the current stadium magazine “Heidewald”, which also reported on the intended merger of the two clubs. These are all further small steps on the way to the goal of growing together what belongs together again.
