Factfile on Norwich City’s first opponents Hertha Berlin

Hertha Berliner Sport-Club von 1892, commonly known as Hertha BSC or Hertha Berlin, is a German association football club based in Berlin.

A founding member of the German Football Association in Leipzig in 1900, the club has a long history as Berlin’s best-supported side. Hertha will be competing in the 2.Bundesliga, Germany’s second division, for the 2012-13 season.

After spending the 2010–2011 season in the 2. Bundesliga, Hertha BSC secured their return to the Bundesliga for the 2011–2012 season by winning 1–0 at MSV Duisburg, with three matchdays left to go in the season. Hertha finished 16th in the 2011-12 Bundesliga and lost in a controversial relegation playoff tournament to Fortuna Dusseldorf.

They play their first match against Hertha Berlin in Gleisdorf on Saturday.

The club has been tweeting pictures from the camp @NorwichCityFC. Here is what they, and some of the players, have had to say.
