German-born Uwe Seeler was well-known as a professional football player and referee. On November 5, 1936, Uwe was born in Hamburg, Germany. On Thursday, July 21, 2022, in Norderstedt, Germany, he passed away at home. He was 85 years old.



He participated in the same four FIFA World Cups as Pelé as a player. In 1958, 1962, 1966, and 1970, he performed. The German team placed fourth in 1958, and after losing to Italian rivals in the semifinals in 1970, the West German team finished third.

After retiring from football, Uwe served as president of Hamburger SV for 2.5 years, starting in 1995 and ending with his resignation due to a financial controversy for which he accepted responsibility in 1998. He wasn’t directly connected to the abnormalities, though. Due to his fairness and modesty, he was a very well-liked player. In Hamburg and the surrounding area, he is still frequently referred to as Uns Uwe, which is German for “Our Uwe.”



 

 

He was made an honorary citizen of Hamburg in 2003, the first athlete to get such a distinction. Thank you, football, Uwe’s autobiography, was released that year. A massive monument honouring him was unveiled in front of the Hamburger SV stadium in 2005.
