German football club: Hannover 96 football club

A club with over 100 years in existence, Hannover 96 football club is a well established name in German football. However, with regular financial woes coming back to haunt them, the club does not have a lot of trophies on display in the cabinet.

The club has never featured regularly in top flight football and has been relegated a handful of times into 2nd and times even 3rd division. Hannover 96 FC have only managed a top 10 finish in the German Bundesliga once when they ended up 8th in 2007-08 season.

Prior to the start of the Bundesliga, Hannover 96 football club won their first German club nation championship in 1938 and repeated the feat again 1954. Although they have managed to win a few trophies of lower stature through out their history but their most defining and memorable moment would have to be the German Cup that they won in 1992.  During this cup they developed a reputation of giant killers when they brought down clubs who were then playing top flight football. Hannover 96 FC turned out to be the first lower division side to lift the coveted trophy.

More trophies are promised with the club’s owners investing not only in new talent but drawing in good names in management to help them in achieving their first German Bundesliga title.
