Stand Your Ground | Steh deine Frau

Stand Your Ground

Union Kleinmünchen stands out as a founding member and eight-time champion of the Women's Bundesliga. Despite its success, media coverage is limited. Interviews since summer 2021 with key figures like Christine Holzmüller (club stalwart and chairwoman), Katharina Meßthaler (captain), and Almedina Šišić (U19 team player) reveal the club's overlooked story. These insights highlight the daily challenges within this family-run club, the journey back to the field after injuries, and the ongoing struggle for recognition and gender equality in the male-dominated football landscape.
