German football: Karlsruher SC football club

Ever since Karlsruher SC football club was formed, it relied heavily on one thing and that was passion. It is the same love and passion for the game that has taken the club to levels which make them a respectable name not only in German but European football.

Under their previous name of Phoenix Karlsruhe, the club won it’s first and only German championship in 1909. They also have had the honor of winning the German Cup back to back in 1955 and 1956. They did not prove to be lucky at two different occasions where by they made it to the final of the German Cup but ended up on the losing side in 1960 and 1996. Success at the European level came when Karlsruher SC football club won the inter toto cup in 1996 and had also had the opportunity to play in the Semifinal of the UEFA Cup in 1994. They have also been a part of the UEFA on two other occasions as well but ended up crashing out in the third rounds of the tournament.

All this success for this 2nd division club would not have been possible without some inspirational players that really helped in lifting the façade of the team and taking it to the next level. A few notable names that deserve a mention here would have to be, Adrian Knup, Mehmet Scholl, Andre Cristea, David Regis and Oliver Kreuzer.

German football: karlsruhe-football-club

Karlsruher SC football club was a result of a lot of mergers and although it was initially formed in 1894, it finally settled down in 1952. The club is based in Karlsruhe, Germany and after being relegated from the Bundesliga a few years back, they are currently playing in the 2nd division in Germany.

Karlsruher SC football club play their home games at the wildparkstadion with a capacity which is closing down to 30000. The home kits are predominantly white with blue borders and the away games are played wearing a blue kit with white borders.

The club has through out it’s history seen a lot of ups and downs mainly due to financial restrictions which have led them to even play in the German 3rd division but the sheer will and passion for the game helps them bounce back. The club’s golden period is always associated under the crafty leadership of Winfried Schafer, who not only helped them up the table in the Bundesliga got them to perform exceptionally well in the UEFA cup where Karlsruher SC literally thrashed the Spanish giants Valencia football club 7-0 and making the victory as one of the most memorable in the club’s history.

At present the club is playing in the 2nd division but looks pumped up to bounce back in the Bundesliga and some how duplicate the seasons in which they reached the semi finals in the UEFA Cup.
