Hertha Berlin Receives 2. Bundesliga License!

Roger Hampel


The DFL (German Football League) has given the green light for Hertha Berlin's participation in the 2. Bundesliga. Thomas E. Herrich, Managing Director of Hertha BSC, expressed satisfaction, highlighting the strenuous efforts over recent weeks and months to submit all the requisite documentation to the DFL before the deadline.

The process of financial restructuring, consolidation and recovery has been ongoing, mirroring their sporting plans for the forthcoming season. Securing their DFL license provides Hertha Berlin with a level of certainty for future planning. The club is fully committed to improving their financial situation and assembling a competitive team.

The DFL affirmed that licenses have been given to all 36 teams across the Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga for the 2023/24 season. Hertha Berlin lodged their application back in March, but there was a risk they might not receive their license because of financial complications. As a result, Hertha had to provide further evidence of their financial viability following sustained losses.

Having finished last in the Bundesliga with only seven victories out of 34 league games, Hertha Berlin was demoted – marking their first stint in the 2. Bundesliga since the 2012/13 season.

Now that their license has been officially confirmed, they are ramping up their preparations for the forthcoming season. In fact, they've just confirmed an agreement with Diego Demme, set to sign a contract that will extend until 2026.
