About #Heimspiel

In spring and summer 2023, football matches and small tournaments were held at various locations in Chemnitz. On 26 August, the starting signal was given for the #home match in the stadium – An der Gellertstraße! We are now working on new plans for 2024 and 2025.

Football should be fun, bring people together and invite them to play. The teams in our tournaments should be as diverse as possible in terms of sporting criteria, while a cultural programme with exhibitions, workshops, music and talks will accompany the matches and focus on the breadth of the sport, its forms of play as well as its political content, rituals and fan culture. With this in mind, we are calling on everyone to take part, help shape the programme and enjoy a great day of football together with us, the other teams and fans, friends and families.


Team #Heimspiel

Numerous individual players, creative artists and initiatives are involved in the #Heimspiel. The project ran for the first time in 2021-2023 as a cooperation between CFC Fans gegen Rassismus and ASA-FF e.V., among others, as part of the new undiscovered narrative 2025 programme. You will soon find out how it continues here in 2024.

For us, Chemnitz is a city where football and diversity belong together, even if that was unthinkable in the stadium in recent years. That’s why we joined forces for the #Heimspiel project, which became a reality in summer 2023: A football tournament in which football culture and an open-minded society can be combined and an environment can be created in which everyone feels comfortable – regardless of age, gender, origin, religion, disability or sexuality. In this sense, #Heimspiel sees itself as a broad-based campaign for and with Chemnitz’s urban society and, ideally, beyond. Also in the future.

You want to join?

Do you want to be part of #Heimspiel? We are looking for supporters as well as active and interested people who would like to participate in our project to playfully mobilise the Chemnitz urban and civil society, to bring them (back) to the stadium and, last but not least, to back up diversity-sensitive players and fans.

#Heimspiel Tournament

The matches 2023

The game was played in tournament mode at one of four possible preliminary tournaments and on 26 August at the final of #Heimspiel in the stadium – An der Gellertstraße. Approximately four teams could play on each match day and qualify for the final. The game was played with at least seven players (18+) per team according to the classic football rules on a small pitch. Each game lasted 2 x 10 minutes.

The games were accompanied by an extensive cultural programme: In addition to great match days, there were exhibitions, workshops, discussions and film screenings as well as a networking trip to Gelsenkirchen! Tomma Suki Hinrichsen developed DIY football furniture for us that turned the urban space into a pop-up football pitch. We kicked off summer 2023 together in the UK with a football festival for kids, brought the exhibition Between Success and Persecution – Jewish Stars in German Sport up to 1933 and afterwards to the station forecourt and combined football and hip-hop, got to know fantastic teams, great fans and important initiatives and projects, exchanged views on inclusive, integrative and diversity-sensitive issues in football and experienced four great pre-tournament match days with music, sunshine and fair play.

We are part of KOSMOS Chemnitz 2024 and look forward to spend the day with you: Among others, we create a part of the sports area together with Athletic Sonnenberg, the AJZ Siebdruckwerkstatt and IVF Leipzig!

What we have planned:
What connects us on and off the pitch? And what is football and fan culture for you?: Together we will build a diversity banner for Chemnitz. Come along and help design part of the banner!

You want to design your own merch? We prepared motifs for screen printing and colours for your messages and the AJZ screen printing workshop will help you with the printing. So bring your shirts, bags or similar (ideally unprinted and cotton!) and get creative with us!

The IVF from Leipzig will be bringing along a parcours on the special features of blind football. IVF Leipzig has been involved in anti-discrimination work in football for many years and was already part of #Heimspiel x KOSMOS in 2022 with its exhibition ‘Strafraum Sachsen 2.0’!

Fair Play

We love football as much as you do! Football is what connects us. Rivalry and friendship, celebrating victories together and mourning defeats together – in football, joy and sorrow are often very close together. For us, team spirit, fair play, respect, tolerance, diversity and role models are just as much a part of football.

We appreciate every participation in our project, every comment and every discussion under our posts. We are aware that we cannot all have the same opinion. In order for this exchange to take place on an equal level and always remain fair and factual, a few simple rules are required:

1. We do not tolerate racist, sexist, anti-semitic, anti-LGBTIQ or otherwise discriminatory comments about groups or individuals.

2. We do not accept personal insults, belittling or other derogatory comments about appearance.

3. We do not tolerate glorification of violence or calls for violence.

Furthermore, we reserve the right to make use of our domiciliary rights to deny access to or exclude persons from our events who belong to right-wing extremist parties or organisations, who are associated with the right-wing extremist scene or who have already made an appearance in the past through racist, nationalist, anti-semitic or other inhuman statements.
