The future of the Hamburg fixture was at risk this time last year.

Beloved Hamburg club Golden Pudel has received €300k in government funding after being severely damaged in a fire last February.

The funding, which combines €200k from the city of Hamburg along with €100k from the western district of Altona, makes an enormous dent in €850,000 goal, as NDR points out. Last fall the club began taking donations for the repairs with fundraising support from artists including Helena Hauff and Modeselektor.
