Become a HSV member

Join the club that you fell in love with to make your voice heard and become a part of something special.

Joining Hamburger Sport-Verein as a member means that become a part of a club steeped in history, and join an 88,000-strong family, which is growing all the time. Best of all, you can join like-minded HSV fans and make your voice heard to steer the club in the right direction. As a member of Hamburger Sport-Verein e.V., you have the ability to vote on matters which are put to the members, as well as at the club’s A.G.M. and various elections on who takes what position in the club’s hierarchy. On top of that, you have access to reduced season ticket prices, special items of merchandise and are able to buy tickets for home and away matches before they go on general sale.  As well as the emotional connection to the club which you feel when you become a member, there are a number of additional benefits:

  • Personal membership card and welcome pack upon application
  • Voting rights and right to be heard as part of HSV e.V
  • Season tickets at discounted prices
  • Right to buy tickets for home and away matches before they go on general sale
  • HSVlive e-magazine or a printed copy if preferred
  • Access to a whole host of official Supporters’ Club merchandise

For €5 a month, you can become a HSV member (Förderndes Mitglied) as well as a member of the HSV Supporters’ Club (more information here). The yearly membership fee of €60 is to be paid at the start of every new season, or €40 a year if you are a student, apprentice, disabled, pensioner or unemployed. Payment of the membership fee can be made with a non-German bank account, either by invoice or direct debit.

If you have decided that being a HSV member is for you then you can fill out the membership form here (in German). If you are having trouble filling out the form in German or have any other questions regarding membership, be sure to contact the Membership Services team via or on their hotline (+4940 4155 1500).

Lifetime membership

For many of us, being a HSV fan is a commitment for life. For that very reason, the lifetime membership at HSV has been developed, to give people the opportunity to show their allegiance to the famous blue, white and black diamond. Through a one-off payment of €1,887 (the founding year of the club), you can become a lifetime member of HSV e.V., something that is also available for current members of the club. The number of lifetime memberships available has also been limited to 1,887, meaning that if you decide to take this step you are joining an elite club.

The money generated by the lifetime memberships is used for investments into HSV e.V., meaning that your money goes towards the long-term financial security of the club and enabling a better future for all HSV fans. On top of this, you receive a special welcome package, containing a HSV scarf with a personalised name badge, your own membership card in a special design and a certificate confirming your lifetime membership.
