Biography

Willi Worpitzky was a member of the German soccer team at the 1912 Stockholm Olympics. The starting goalkeeper [Albert Weber] was severely injured during the first round match against Austria, when Germany was in the lead, 1-0. He was replaced by Worpitzky, a forward, and Germany lost the game 5-1, although Worpitzky sometimes played as a goalkeeper for his club. At those times substitutes were not allowed, so Germany had to finish the game with only 10 players.

Worpitzky played for Britannia Berlin from 1898-1906, then until 1916 for Viktoria 89 Berlin, winning German Championships in 1908 and 1911. From 1916-22 he played for VfB Pankow. He earned nine international caps and scored five goals. After his active career Worpitzky became a football coach in Berlin. By profession, he was a technician.
