Four legends added to the “Walk of Fame”

Mladen Petric, Caspar Memering, Peter Hidien and Jürgen Groh have been inducted into the “Walk of Fame” around the foot at the Volksparkstadion.

You picked the candidates and the jury is out. Roughly 450 of you sent in about 90 different nominations. The honours-adjudicators, consisting of HSV-chairman Bernd Hoffmann, Museum curator Niko Stövhase and Walk of Fame founder Andreas Maske have come to a decision. Mladen Petric, Caspar Memering, Peter Hidien and Jürgen Groh have earnt their place on the HSV “Walk of Fame” in front of the Hamburg Volksparkstadion. “We are delighted about the lively participation and numerous nominations. I think that we can be very satisfied with the final choices. The Hamburg Walk of Fame has four shimmering stars to add to its collection”, said Maske after the decision.

Around the statue of Uwe Seeler’s foot near the north-east bank of the stadium, lie the names of 46 former HSV greats of the game, including Ernst Happel, Manfred Kaltz and Kevin Keegan. Alongside their name and position, the elected legends have been immortalised by a memorial plaque alongside their hand or footprint. Numbers 46 to 50 will be ceremoniously installed on 9th October 2018. Petric, Memerings, Hidiens and Groh will have their footprints specially moulded before the induction into the Walk of Fame.
