Frauke Seeler Parents: Uwe Seeler and Ilka Seeler

Frauke Seeker’s parents are Uwe Seeler and Ilka Seeler. In addition to being a football official, Uwe Seeler played football professionally for Germany. In Hamburg, Germany, on November 5, 1936, Uwe Seeler was born.



Between 1953 and 1972, he served as a striker for Hamburger SV in Germany. During his playing career, he appeared for the club 476 times and scored 404 goals for the German-based team.

Between 1953 and 1970, he also competed for West Germany’s Under-18 and Senior national teams as well as the German national team. At the age of 85, Uwe Seeler passed away today in his home in Norderstedt, Germany.




In 1978, he and his former teammate Franz-Josef Hönig played for Cork Celtic F.C. in a one-off sponsored event. Seeler had ended his active playing career in 1972. However, this match turned out to be an official League of Ireland one and Uwe scored twice.

Thus, his overall record of goals scored in league and championship matches adds up to 446 (Hamburger SV 444, Cork Celtic 2). His 404 goals in German Oberliga and Bundesliga league games are a record that stands today, his 406 goals in league games overall making him the second-best German goalscorer behind Gerd Müller.



Seeler died on 21 July 2022, aged 85, in his home in Norderstedt. He was honored later in the day with a moment of silence before the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 quarter-final between Germany and Austria.
