Would I be able to find any names that would be familiar to me as a football fan in the 2. Bundesliga or the Oberliga?

I'd also like to know if the ice hockey clubs follow the 50+1 rule like the football clubs do?
Hamburger SV has a team in the Oberliga right now, Eintracht Braunschweig had a team many years ago.
Adler Mannheim have strong ties to the Hopp family, which are behind Hoffenheim of the football Bundesliga.

Many teams are owned by investors, the Anschutz Group, owner of the LA Kings, also controls Eisbären Berlin and the Hamburg Freezers (and Hammerby IF up to 49%).
