Mike Diehl
Stadium announcer

For many spectators at the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar Arena, the voice that comes out of the loud speakers seems familiar. Why? Because stadium announcer Mike Diehl made a name for himself as a radio and music programme presenter. Working for Radio Regenbogen and on ZDF’s programme “Chart Attack”, he demonstrated his abilities early on in his career. Diehl has been with TSG since 2005 and is a Hoffenheim fan, but he only visited the stadium for the first time in 1999. 
He has been the presenter of matchdays since the club achieved promotion to the 2. Bundesliga in 2007. He is also responsible for all things charity related and oversees the organisation of the stadium tours.

Carsten Lindwurm
Head of fan support / Fan representative

Carsten has been head of Hoffenheim’s fan support since April 2018. The 33-year-old is a familiar face in the TSG fan community, having worked on ‘Fanprojekt Hoffenheim’ between 2011 and 2013. He also continued to work in the professional fan scene after that. Together with his team, he is now the main point of contact for all TSG fans at home and away games in the Bundesliga, the DFB-Pokal or even on the European stage.

He considers openness a key part of his work at TSG. “I’m always happy to lend an ear to any fan with any problem,” says Carsten, adding: “TSG have made huge strides when it comes to fan culture in recent years. Together with my team, I want to play my part in making sure we continue down that path.”

Andreas was a long-time chairman of the “Young Boyz” fan club and played a big role in supporting the team. He has also acted as a contact person and intermediary with other fan clubs. Whether home or away, he aims to make every TSG game an unforgettable stadium experience together with his colleagues.

Michael "Charly" Mildenberger
Disabled representative

Michael "Charly" Mildenberger grew up in the Kraichgau and played several times for TSV Dühren at the Dietmar-Hopp-Stadion. As founder and president of the “integrative fan club”, a group which looks after the interests of disabled football enthusiasts, and through his 20 years of experience working with disabled people, he was the obvious choice for the role of disabled representative at TSG.
Along with his team, he helps disabled fans and their companions enter the stadium and find their places, looks after their special needs and also provides electric blankets in the winter. Inclusion, integration and participation are the essential words in what he does.

Emil Vetter
Fan representative (U23)

It is no exaggeration to label Emil Vetter as a TSG veteran. Born in Sinsheim, he has had ties to Hoffenheim since the 1995/96 season. In the Verbandsliga he was the only fan with a drum and so was alone responsible for the rhythmic support of the team from the stands.
Emil Vetter was one of the founding members of the first Hoffenheim fan club “Zwingerclub” in 2000. A trained mechanic, he has been responsible for away game travel since 2001 and as a long time TSG fan, he always has time for the needs of the supporters.
