Titles, tears and triumphs: 1. FC Nürnberg can look back on an eventful history, now over 118 years old. The club celebrated its greatest successes in the “golden” 20s, when five of the nine championships were won. Until the 1960s, the club was one of the big names in German football. But with the first descent from the House of Lords in 1969, a decades-long low began. Relegations and scandals shaped the club, which earned the reputation of an elevator team during this time and even fell into the third-class regional league in 1996. Only in the new millennium did the club consolidate and pick up on old times with the DFB Cup victory in 2007. However, the FCN is still stuck in the elevator today. In 2007/2008 and 2013/2014 – including two coach changes, a winless first half of the season and most recently seven defeats in a row – the club was relegated from the 1st Bundesliga and is the only record relegated in Germany. Since the resurgence in 2017/18, the FCN, together with Arminia Bielefeld, has also been a record climber in the upper house of football. In summer 2020, the club only saved itself from relegation with a last-minute hit by Fabian Schleusener and thus remains second division.
