Welcome to issue #1

Since 2016 Bloody Hell Magazine has been joining you on the side-lines and in the stands of berlin football. From the heights of the Bundesliga 2, to the wonderful depths of Kreisliga C. Eight tiers of football, from the verge of Bundesliga greatness to the bloody knees of a challenge on AstroTurf at 10 am on a Sunday morning in a far flung corner of berlin. Two years has led us to this, a welcome to the first edition of the bloody hell magazine.

We're not just here for amateur football in Berlin, we're here for everything non-league, and on occasion we look at matters that affect all tiers of football. We hope you enjoy this first issue, released, not coincidentally, on the weekend of non-league day, and we look forward to bringing you more stories from the world of non-league football in the near future.
