Based in one of the most happening cities in Germany, FSV Mainz 05 Football Club is based in Mainz Rhineland-Palatinate. The club was initially formed in 1903 but it went through a lot of mergers in a short period of time and eventually settled down with it’s current name in 1919.

Playing their home games in Stadion am Bruchweg with a capacity of over twenty thousand, FSV Mainz 05 FC play in their usual home kit colored red and white. The club did not get a chance to play top flight football for a very long time since they mostly played in the German second division and mostly finished middle of the table. Eventually under the inspirational managerial leadership of Jurgen Klopp, FSV Mainz 05 won a ticket to the German Bundesliga in 2004. The very same season, they received a ticket to the UEFA Cup under the fair play rule eventually losing out to the subsequent champions Sevilla football club.

The club has since then been facing constant relegations only to return back to the top flight but there seems to be a lack of consistency which is frustrating for the owners and the fans. However, the current season has been very promising and the club is well away from the relegation zone which in itself would be a major victory for them.
