Peformance record of German football club Mainz 05

FSV Mainz 05 Football Club have never been a club that you would associate a lot of trophies with. The fact is that with it’s long history it has never been able to draw in big money and eventually big named players which would have helped them win trophies.

Mainz 05 FC have been constantly struggling to make a mark for themselves in German football and have not been present consistently in the top flight German Bundesliga. Apart from winning the ‘South West Cup’, a trophy in which the reserve players take part, eight times, Mainz 05 FC do not have any notable achievements to write home about.

The most important achievement for the club is that in the recent years even though have faced relegation from the top flight division regularly, they have often bounced backed and are trying to draw in investors who could change the fate of this club by investing big money in the infrastructure and players.

Mainz 05 Football club have however had a good start to the 21st century not only because they have been constantly playing with the big boys but also because in the German national cup called DFB-Pokal they finished as semi finalists in 2009. More so, in 2005, due to their fair play they won a ticket to play in the UEFA Cup. With the club still struggling on many fronts, it’s fans and hard working players are trying to make sure that the club works towards populating it’s trophy cabinet soon.
