Multisport clubs in German ice hockey?

I came across this article by Uli Hesse about the Bayern München basketball team, and it made me wonder why so few, if any of the DEL teams have links to the multisport clubs that seem to play a significant role in almost all other German sporting activities.

I know that Eisbären Berlin were once a part of the SC Dynamo Berlin umbrella and that Frankfurt Lions used to be the ice hockey section of Eintracht Frankfurt, but do any of the other current or former DEL teams have a similar connection?

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%).

no 50+1 in the DEL


Mannheim has nothing to do with Hoffenheim in the sports section.

Only that Mr. Hopp sponsors both and I think without him, they wouldn't be where they are right now..

Yeah, I noticed the HSV team on Eliteprospects.
I guess the natural follow up question is if they are actually part of HSV or if they have just lent the name like the handball team has?

They are a part of the Hamburger Sportverein.
The Ultras of the football club even attend games from time to time to show their support.

The Handball club is actually Handball Sport Verein. The HSV doesn't even stand for Hamburger SV even though they are allowed to use the logo.

Bayern Munich used to have a profesional Hockey team between 1966 and 1969 which played 2 seasons in the top German league.

I used to play for the HSV youth team back in the 80's at the Stellingen outdoor rink.
