Rot-Weiss Essen is a German association football club based in Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia. The club plays in the fourth-tier Regionalliga West, at the Stadion Essen; the team won the DFB-Pokal in 1953, the German championship in 1955. The latter success qualified them to the first season of the European Cup; the club was formed as SV Vogelheim on 1 February 1907 out of the merger of two smaller clubs: SC Preussen and Deutsche Eiche. In 1910, Vogelheim came to an arrangement with Turnerbund Bergeborbeck that allowed the two clubs to field a football side; the footballers left in 1913 to set up their own club, Spiel- und Sportverein Emscher-Vogelheim, which changed its name to Spiel und Sport 1912 after World War I. In 1923, this side turned again to Turnerbund Bergeborbeck to create Rot-Weiss Essen. In 1938, RWE broke into top-flight football in the Gauliga Niederrhein, one of sixteen premier divisions formed in the 1933 re-organization of German football under the Third Reich, came within a point of taking the division title in 1941.
In 1943 they played with BV Altenessen as the combined wartime side KSG SC Rot-Weiß Essen/BV 06 Altenessen. The next season this club was in turn joined by BVB Essen, but played only a single match in a stillborn season as World War II overtook the country; the club returned to first division football in the Oberliga West in 1948, where a series of solid performances led to a divisional championship in 1952. The pinnacle of the club's success came with a 2–1 win over Alemannia Aachen in the 1953 DFB-Pokal final, followed by a national championship in 1955 when it beat 1. FC Kaiserslautern 4–3; the following season, Rot-Weiss became the first German side to qualify for the European Cup. Their performance tailed off after this and RWE became just another mid-table side before they were relegated in 1961; the club played most of the 1960s as a second division side, but did manage its first appearance in the top-flight Bundesliga in 1966–67. It returned to the Bundesliga for two seasons in 1969–70, again, for four seasons beginning in 1973–74.
Between 1978 and the end of the century, Rot-Weiss was a solid second- or third-tier club, with just one season spent in the Oberliga Nordrhein in 1998–99. During this period, the club was plagued by financial problems that saw it denied a licence in 1984, 1991, 1994, leading to relegation from the 2. Bundesliga each time as a result. Bright spots during this period included winning the German amateur championship in 1992 and an appearance in the 1994 DFB-Pokal final, which they lost 1–3 to SV Werder Bremen. RWE dropped to the Oberliga the next season. In 2004, they won promotion back to the 2. Bundesliga, but were relegated once again. In November 2005 Pelé became an honorary club member; the team reappeared in the 2. Bundesliga after winning the Regionalliga Nord in 2006, but narrowly missed staying up when they lost the critical final match of the 2006–07 season 3–0 to Duisburg. Rot-Weiss became a fourth division side following the introduction of the 3. Liga in 2008 and a fifth division team after insolvency in 2010.
They won the fifth level NRW-Liga in 2010–11 and returned to Regionalliga West for the 2011–12 season. Until 2012 Rot-Weiss used to play in the Georg-Melches-Stadion, named in honour of a former club president. In 1956, the team's home field became the first stadium in West Germany to have floodlights. Since August 2012 RWE has played in the new Stadion Essen; the naming rights to the stadium include RWE AG. Fortuna Düsseldorf, Rot-Weiß Oberhausen and Wuppertaler SV are local rivals when they are playing in the same league; the club's fiercest rivalry is with FC Schalke 04, from nearby Gelsenkirchen, with whom they contest the Ruhrderby. In the past, the local derbies versus Schwarz-Weiß Essen were big events, sometimes followed by more than 30,000 fans, however since their rivals decline the rivalry has waned in importance. Although clouded in political terms, the "reds" were left-wing and the "blacks" right-wing, in reality there was no real distinction; the rivalry was more based on geography of the city, a north versus south city divide.
While the reputation of northern Essen has been attached to the working class in the past decades, the south of the city is regarded as a wealthier area, inhabited by an upper-middle class. The RWE followers have a strong fan friendship with SV Werder Bremen, while another with Borussia Dortmund ended. Although playing in lower divisions, the club enjoys solid fan support, with an average attendance of better than 6,000 per game; the club's honours: German championship Champions: 1955 German amateur championship Champions: 1992 Oberliga West Champions: 1952, 1955 Regionalliga West Champions: 1973 Regionalliga Nord Champions: 2004, 2006 NRW-Liga Champions: 2011 Oberliga Nordrhein Champions: 1985, 1986, 1993, 1999 DFB-Pokal Winners: 1952–53 Lower Rhine Cup Winners: 1993, 1995, 2002, 2004, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016 As of 15 February 2018Note: Flags indicate national team as defined under FIFA eligibility rules.

Borussia VfL 1900 Mönchengladbach e. V. known as Borussia Mönchengladbach, Mönchengladbach or Gladbach, is a professional football club based in Mönchengladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia, that plays in the Bundesliga, the top flight of German football. The club has won five League titles, three DFB-Pokals, two UEFA Europa League titles. Borussia Mönchengladbach were founded in 1900, with its name derived from a Latinized form of Prussia, a popular name for German clubs in the former Kingdom of Prussia; the team joined the Bundesliga in 1965, saw the majority of its success in the 1970s, under the guise of Hennes Weisweiler, they captured five league championships with Die Fohlen team. Mönchengladbach won two UEFA Cup titles during this period. Since 2004, Borussia Mönchengladbach have played at Borussia-Park, having played at the Bökelbergstadion since 1919. Based on membership, Borussia Mönchengladbach is the fifth largest club in Germany, with over 75,000 members; the club's main rivals are FC Köln, against.
A forerunner of the club Borussia Mönchengladbach was a group of players who, after leaving the sports club Germania, founded the new club on 17 November 1899 in the restaurant "Anton Schmitz" on the Alsstraße in Eicken district of Mönchengladbach, which became a sports club with the name FC Borussia in 1900. The name "Borussia" derives from the Latinized form of Prussia, the kingdom in which the city of Mönchengladbach was situated from 1815. By 1912, Die Borussen found itself in the Verbandsliga, at the time the highest division the club could play in. In March 1914, the club purchased the ground on which the Bökelbergstadion would be built; the First World War halted the progress of both the stadium and FC Borussia, but by late 1917 the team had begun to play games once more. In 1919, FC Borussia merged with another local club, Turnverein Germania 1889, becoming 1899 VfTuR M. Gladbach; the club achieved its first major success in 1920, defeating Kölner BC 3–1 to win the Westdeutsche Meisterschaft final.
The union between Germania and Borussia only lasted a matter of two years. V. M. Gladbach. Following the rise of the Nazi Party to power in 1933, the German league system was reformed to consist of 16 Gauligen – Gladbach found themselves playing first in the Gauliga Niederrhein, in various Bezirksklassen. While under the Third Reich, Mönchengladbach's first international player was capped. After the outbreak of World War II, play continued as usual, other than for the 1944–45 season. Mönchengladbach resumed play in June 1946, gaining successive promotions to the Landesliga Niederrhein in 1949 and the top flight, the Oberliga West, in 1950. Following many years of promotions and relegations, Borussia won their first Oberliga title in the 1958–59 season. In August 1960, Borussia Mönchengladbach defeated 1. FC Köln in the West German Cup. Weeks the club won the DFB-Pokal, clinching their first national honours after defeating Karlsruher SC 3–2 in the final; the following year, the club took on the now-familiar name Borussia VfL Mönchengladbach after the city of München-Gladbach became Mönchengladbach.
The 1961–62 season in the Oberliga ended again with Borussia in 13th place in the table. In 1962–63, the club hoped in vain to join the circle of DFB clubs which would start next year in the newly founded Bundesliga. Helmut Beyer, who remained in office for 30 years, took over the responsibility of president that season and Helmut Grashoff took over as second chairman. In July 1962, Borussia signed Fritz Langner, who had won the West German championship in 1959 with Westfalia Herne, as their new coach. To Langner's chagrin, the new leadership sold Albert Brüllsfor a record fee of 250,000 DM to FC Modena in Italy in order to rehabilitate the club financially. Helmut Grashoff, who collected the fee in Italian lira in cash in a suitcase said he had feared, after the money transfer, "being thought a bank robber"; the proceeds from the transfer enabled Langner to rebuild the squad with the signing of players like Heinz Lowin, Heinz Crawatzo and Siegfried Burkhardt. That year, the A-Youth team won the West German championship with a squad that included future professional footballers, Jupp Heynckes and Herbert Laumen.
Further honours would have to wait a decade. Borussia's results in the ten years leading up to the formation of the Bundesliga in 1963 were not strong enough to earn them admission into the ranks of the nation's new top flight professional league, so the club played in the second tier, the Regionalliga West. In the next season, 1964–65, the club signed the youngsters, Jupp Heynckes and Bernd Rupp, some of the youth team joined the professional squad, their average age of 21.5 years was the lowest of all regional league teams. They earned the nickname "foals" due to their low average age as well as their carefree and successful play. Reporter Wilhelm August Hurtmanns coined the nickname in his articles in the Rheinische Post, he wrote that they would play like young foals. By April 1965, the team had won the Regionalliga West and thus secured the participation in the Bundesliga promotion round in Group 1; this saw the team play against the competitors of Wormatia Worms, SSV Reutlingen and Holstein Kiel in first and second matches.
Of the six games Borussia won thre

FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt
FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt is a German association football club based in Erfurt, Thuringia. The club has roots that go back to a cricket club founded in 1895; as they broadened their interests they came to be called Sport Club Erfurt. The club was a founding member of the German Football Association in 1900 and in 1904 they joined the Verband Mitteldeutscher Ballspielvereine; the side won the league championship in 1908–09 and advanced as far as the semi final of the national round where they lost to the eventual champion. While Erfurt did manage to play for a number of seasons in the premier level Gauliga Mitte, formed after 1933, they failed to earn any honours. In the aftermath of World War II the Allies banned all organizations, including sport and football clubs. In 1946, the Soviet occupation authorities permitted the organization of five district sports clubs in Erfurt. SG Erfurt West encompassed the area of the city once served by SC Erfurt 1895 and VfB Erfurt and drew footballers who had played for these clubs.
Success came with an appearance in the 1948 Thüringer final, followed by a title in 1949. A quick series of name changes went hand-in-hand with a series of failed cup and final appearances: as Fortuna Erfurt in 1949, KWU Erfurt in 1950, BSG Turbine Erfurt in 1951. In 1954 and 1955, Turbine captured consecutive East German national titles, but slipped back into the pack and out of tier I for the first time in 1959; the team was up and down between the first and second divisions through the 60s, being relegated three times, but always winning immediate promotion. Like other East German clubs at the time they suffered as the best players were plucked to play for favoured clubs with politically powerful sponsors. East German football underwent major changes in 1965 with the creation of "pure" football clubs in the place of broadly generalised sports clubs; the number one football sides of SC Turbine Erfurt and BSG Optima Erfurt were merged in 1966 and revived the name FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt, while the more junior sides stayed with their original clubs.
The name was unusual for its time in that the club did not have a name that honoured some socialist virtue. In 1980, Rot-Weiß Erfurt appeared in the East German Cup final. German re-unification and the merger of the leagues of East and West Germany in the early 1990s brought exciting times to Rot-Weiß. A third-place finish in the NOFV-Oberliga in 1990–91 earned them a spot in the 2. Bundesliga for the next season, as well as a turn in the UEFA Cup 1991–92, they eliminated FC Groningen in the first round, went out against eventual winner AFC Ajax Amsterdam in the second round. This fixture made them the last side to appear internationally for East Germany. Through the 1990s and into the new millennium, Rot-Weiß remained a tier three side, they had a close call in 2001 when they avoided relegation only because SSV Ulm 1846 was denied a license due to financial difficulties. During this period of time, the club went through to the regional cup final seven times, they came away as Thuringian cup winner each time.
They were never able to make it past this point and were always subsequently eliminated in the first round. In 2004, the club was promoted to 2. Bundesliga, but finished last and was relegated back to Regionalliga Nord. In 2008, Erfurt finished in seventh place in Regionalliga Nord and therefore qualified for the new nationwide 3. Liga, it has played at this level since, which makes the club the only side to play 3. Liga continuously since the foundation of this league in 2008. Fifth places in 2011 and 2012 are the best results as yet; the club's honours: DDR-Oberliga: Winners: 1953–54, 1954–55 Runners-up: 1950–51 Soviet Zone championship: Runners-up: 1948–49 Verband Mitteldeutscher Ballspiel-Vereine: Champions: 1908–09 Thuringian Gau championship: Winners: 1902–03, 1903–04, 1904–05, 1905–06, 1906–07, 1907–08, 1908–09, 1909–10, 1911–12, 1916–17, 1918–19, 1919–20 Northern Thuringia Gau championship: Winners: 1910–11, 1911–12, 1913–14, 1916–17, 1917–18, 1923–24, 1926–27, 1931–32, 1932–33 Thüringian championship: Winners: 1948–49 FDGB-Pokal: Runners-up: 1949–50, 1979–80 Thuringia Cup: Winners: 1993–94, 1997–98, 1999–2000, 2000–01, 2001–02, 2002–03, 2004–05‡, 2007–08, 2008–09, 2016–17 Runners-up: 1995–96, 1996–97, 2003–04‡, 2012–13, 2013–14, 2015–16 ‡ Won by reserve team.

Horst Hrubesch is a retired German football player who last managed the German women's national team. As a player Hrubesch won three West German championships with his club side, Hamburger SV, as well as the European Cup title in 1983, he was a key member of the West Germany team that made it to the final of the 1982 World Cup, losing to Italy. His nickname was Das Kopfball-Ungeheuer for his heading skills as a centre-forward. Hrubesch played in small clubs until the age of 24. There he played well enough. At Hamburg he blossomed into one of the most productive forwards of the Bundesliga and was soon called up for the West German national team. Hrubesch formed an attacking partnership with fellow HSV player Manfred Kaltz, a right wingback whose crosses Hrubesch headed in, or headed to teammates to provide them with scoring chances. Hrubesch won the West German championship three times with Hamburg, in 1979, 1982 and 1983. In all, he scored 96 goals in 159 matches for the club. Hrubesch won the European Cup in 1983, captaining the team to a 1–0 win against favourites Juventus in the final in Athens.

West Germany's match-winning hero in the UEFA Euro 1980 Final in Rome against Belgium, Hrubesch scored two goals, the second a trademark bullet header, in the 89th minute, it was a day of redemption for the big Hamburger SV centre forward who a few weeks earlier had hobbled around the field with an ankle injury as his club lost the European Champion Clubs' Cup final to Nottingham Forest FC. A latecomer to the international scene, Hrubesch had only been called into the West Germany squad after Klaus Fischer broke his leg, the game against Belgium was only his fifth international appearance.
He would play for West Germany 21 times, scoring 6 goals, his last match being the losing 1982 FIFA World Cup final against Italy. Hrubesch is famous for having scored the winning penalty which defeated France in the 1982 FIFA World Cup semi-final, after an epic game, tied 3–3 after extra-time. Minutes earlier, in the second extra-time period with France leading 3-2, it was Hrubesch who headed a cross from the left wing to Klaus Fischer, enabling his spectacular overhead kick equalizer. Irish television commentator Jimmy Magee during the shoot-out coined the nickname that made Hrubesch best known in the English-speaking world: "The man they call'The Monster'." Hrubesch started his coaching career with Rot-Weiss Essen He was there between 1 July 1986 and 14 September 1987.

Peter Neururer is a German association football manager notable for coaching a number of Bundesliga clubs. Neururer had a minor playing career in the lower leagues before moving into coaching at TuS Haltern and SG Weitmar, he moved into the higher leagues as assistant manager of Horst Hrubesch at 2. Bundesliga club Rot-Weiss Essen in the 1986–87 season, had a two-month spell in sole command in late 1987. Neururer won two of his nine matches as manager. Neururer gained an outright managerial position at this level with Alemannia Aachen in January 1988. After landing the club a 6th-place finish where he won 10 out of 17 matches in the 1987–88 season and a strong following season, he was approached by Schalke 04, who were enduring a difficult season after relegation. Neururer left the club on 10 April 1989, his final match was a 1–0 loss against SV Darmstadt 98 on 7 April 1989. Alemannia Aachen were in seventh place, he Finished with a record of 23 wins, nine draws, 13 losses. Neururer was chosen as manager of FC Schalke 04 on 11 April 1989.
Neururer took the Ruhr club to 5th place in 1989–90 and started the following season brightly as well, with the club being second after the opening three months. However, this was not enough to satisfy the club president who fired him nonetheless in November 1990, he finished with a record of 33 wins, 16 draws, 17 losses. In June 2007, Neururer created controversy when he claimed that doping had been rife in German football in the 1990s, he referred to his time as manager of FC Schalke 04 in 1989–90 in this accusation, although this was refuted by the club itself. Neururer did not have to wait too long for another opportunity as Bundesliga side Hertha BSC came calling after they had fired Pál Csernai. Neururer took over in March 1991; the club were sat bottom the table at this point and Neururer was unable to stop the rot, as the team failed to win a single game in his 14 in charge and were duly relegated. Unsurprisingly, Neururer left Hertha BSC at this point in May 1991, he finished with a record of no wins, two draws, 10 losses.
Neururer joined 1. FC Saarbrücken on 1 July 1991. At 1. FC Saarbrücken, Neururer enjoyed his greatest success yet as the team won the league and were promoted to the top flight, their time in the Bundesliga was not to prove lengthy though, as they finished bottom in their first season back at this level, which spelled the end for Neururer. Neururer left the club on 30 June 1993, he finished with a record of 21 wins, 25 draws, 22 losses. Neururer's next post was at second flight Hannover 96. Neururer took over on 7 November 1994; the club was at the bottom of the table. Neururer maintained their league status. Neururer left the club on 30 May 1995, he finished with a record of seven wins, seven draws, six losses. He had to wait until the following year for another management role, when Bundesliga side 1. FC Köln moved for him after firing Stephan Engels. Neururer again managed to retain a club's league status, he managed a 10th-place finish the following season, but after a disappointing start to the 1997–98 season, he was fired in September 1997.
He finished with a record of 25 wins, eight draws, 27 losses. Neururer was manager of Fortuna Düsseldorf from 22 April 1999 to the end of the season, he finished with a record of two wins, one draw, five losses. Neururer joined Kickers Offenbach in October 1999; the club were bottom of the 2. Bundesliga at the time, Neururer was unable to reverse their fortunes and they slipped to the Regionalliga Süd, he began the following season still with the club but after failing to win either of their opening two games, the club acted swiftly and he was dismissed on 6 August 2000. He finished with a record of eight wins, nine draws, 10 losses, he returned to the second flight with LR Ahlen in October 2000. His first season brought a 7th-place finish, but an indifferent start to the 2001–02 season saw him leaving the club for fellow 2. Bundesliga outfit VfL Bochum. VfL Bochum hired Neururer on 3 December 2001. VfL Bochum was another period of success for the coach as they were promoted in his first season and he retained their Bundesliga position for two seasons.
