Holger Glinicki loves Hamburg to the core. Born 1952 and raised in the hanse town the coach of the Baskets stayed loyal to his home and its proper football club. Owner of a HSV season ticket for 20 years he enjoys the matches whenever he could from the south stands in the Volkspark and gets emotional as on the sideline of the court. His greatest challange for this season: to form a team out of the single characters.
After a successful career as a player (in Hamburg of course), Holger coached the german woman national team and since 2013 the team of the BG Baskets. Besides paralympic gold 2012 in London the roll of his titles seems to be endless. But being honored Hamburgs coach of the year (2012) certainly was a special one for Holger.
