Erwin Kostedde (born 21 May 1946) is a German former footballer. The son of a German mother and an African-American father, Kostedde was the first black player to play for West Germany,[2] and was the top scorer in the Belgian League in 1970–71 and in Ligue 1 in 1979–80.
He scored 98 goals in 218 Bundesliga matches.[3]
In 1990, Kostedde was accused of robbing an amusement hall, and spent six months in prison before being acquitted and receiving DM 3,000 compensation.[4][5][6]
In 1994, a fanzine at Kickers Offenbach was started and given the name 'Erwin' in Kostedde's honour. The fanzine lasted for 13 years and produced 65 editions.[5]
