Teammates last and next year
The 28-year-old Kreß won three German club championships in the GFL with his previous team, the Schwäbsich Hall Unicorns, along with Butsch. At 112 kg, Butsch is slightly lighter than his well-known teammate, but is nevertheless hyped about the new challenge in the best European football league. "I'm looking forward to the new challenge and will work hard on myself to build on previous successes. I also want to help establish a winning mentality and culture in Stuttgart," said Butsch.
While Butsch and Kreß are new additions to the team, Sercan Vardar, a real crowd favorite, had already been extended a few days ago.
