FC Koln football club is one of the most successful clubs in Germany. Although they have not had an exceptional record within Europe but certainly back at home their record is worth applauding.

Not only have they been champions of Germany on three occasions in 1962, 1964 and 1978, they have also been runners up on seven different occasions. DFB-Pokal seems to be one of the most favorite hunting grounds for this mammoth German club, they have bagged the title four times but have been runners up on six different occasions. Undoubtedly, one of the highest points that FC Koln has achieved within it’s history is the runners up medal that received in the 1986 UEFA Cup in which they played supremely and became a genuine force to reckon with in Europe.

There have been some very famous names that have been associated with FC Koln football club over the years and of the most famous is the German star that one recall’s from the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Lukas Podolski. He is been one of the most consistent and ruthless strikers who have played the game and FC Koln have been lucky to have had him for a long time although he briefly played his football at Bayern Munich FC. Thomas Cichon is a defender who represented the club for almost a decade and served them in some of the club’s toughest times. Other players of note include Petit, Martin Lanig and Fabrice Ehret.
