Werder Bremen is a German football club playing in Bremen, in the northwest German federal state of the same name. The club was founded in 1899 as FV Werder by a group of sixteen vocational high school students who had won a prize of sports equipment to set them on their way. They took their name from the seldom used regional German word for "river island", describing the riverside field they first played football on.

History

The club enjoyed some early success, fielding competitive sides and winning a number of local championships. They were the first club to charge spectators a fee to attend their games, and to fence in their playing field. Steady growth after World War I led the club to adopt other sports and, in 1920, change their name to the current SV Werder Bremen. Football remained their primary interest, so much so that in 1922, they became the first German club to hire a professional coach. Werder remained competitive through the 30's and 40's in the country's Oberligen and Gauligen, the highest levels of play at the time. “The Great War ” redirects here. ...

Like other organizations throughout Germany, the club was disbanded on the order of the occupying Allied forces after World War II. They re-constituted themselves in late 1945 as Gymnastics and Sport Club Werder of 1945, which was quickly changed to Sport Club Green White of 1899. They were able to reclaim the name SV Werder in early 1946. At the time, professionals were not permitted to play in the German game, so it was normal for football players to take on other jobs, often with the club's local patron. In the case of Werder, a number of the players worked at the nearby Brinkmann tobacco factory, and so the side took on the nickname Texas 11 after one of the company's popular cigarette brands.

Between the end of the war and the formation of the Bundesliga in 1963 the club continued to do well, being recognized as the number two team in the north behind Hamburger SV. In 1961 they managed their first German Cup win. Their performance was good enough to earn them a place as a charter member of the Bundesliga, and in the league's second season Werder took the championship. They earned a second-place finish in the 1967-68, but then languished in the bottom half of the table for a dozen years. An attempt to improve their lot by signing high-priced talent earned the side the new, derisive nickname of the Millionaires and turned out to be an expensive failure. The club dropped out of the Bundesliga for the first and only time, being relegated to the 2.Bundesliga-Nord for the 1980-81 season after a 17th place finish. The official Bundesliga logo. ...

Werder recovered themselves under the direction of newly hired coach Otto Rehhagel, who led the side to a string of successes: Bundesliga runners-up in 1983, 1985 and 1986, champions in 1988; appearances in the final of the German Cup in 1989 and 1990 with a win there in 1991; followed by victory in the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1992. In 1993, the club earned its third Bundesliga title and, in the following year, its third German Cup.

The impact of Rehhagel's departure was felt immediately, and a succession of coaches (Aad de Mos, Dixie Dörner, Wolfgang Sidka and Felix Magath) led the club into a critical position. In May 1999 former defender and amateur coach Thomas Schaaf took over the team and stopping a slide toward relegation and leading the team to a German Cup victory only weeks later.

2006/2007 season

In the 2006/2007 season, Werder Bremen claimed the 'winter champions' title, being the first place team in the Bundesliga before the winter break period. Bremen have scored a total of six goals in one game three times (against VfL Bochum, FSV Mainz 05, and Eintracht Frankfurt). Bremen encountered a tough champions league draw, against last years champions FC Barcelona, and English powerhouse club Chelsea FC. Werder Bremen surprised many avid football viewers, by shocking Barcelona 1-1, and defeating Chelsea 1-0 at the Weserstadion during Champions League group stage. In the return leg of the group stage at the Nou Camp Estadio in Barcelona, Bremen were defeated 0-2, thus seeing them take the third place in the group, and relegated to the UEFA Cup, where they were to face Ajax Amsterdam. They won the first leg 3-0 in the Weserstadion, and despite losing 3-1 in Amsterdam, Werder Bremen progressed with an aggregate score of 4-3, to face Celta Vigo in the next round.

The club started the new year positively, beating Bayer Leverkusen 2-0 away from home. This result, however, was followed by 3 consecutive Bundesliga losses, to Schalke 04, VfB Stuttgart and Hamburger SV. The aggregate victory over Ajax Amsterdam brought some respite, and the club has recently recorded an away draw at Mönchengladbach and a home victory against Bochum to close the gap on Schalke 04, who suffered 2 defeats in the same period, at the top of the league. They also passed to the next round of UEFA cup by defeating Celta de Vigo as they won 0-1 in the first leg and also winning in the second leg with 2:0 in the Weserstadion. In the semi-finals, they held AZ Alkmaar to a 0-0 first leg draw and turned on the style in the second leg to rout the high-flying Dutch team 4-1 to win with the same score on aggregate. They face RCD Espanyol in the semi-finals. (Three of the semi-finalists were all Spanish La Liga teams, whilst Werder Bremen was the only non-Spanish team.) RCD Espanyol emerged 3-0 victors in Barcelona, and won second leg despite Bremen's scoring the first goal. Striker Miroslav Klose was sent off in the 19th minute of the second game, dashing all hopes. Espanyol came back from a goal down to win 2-1 (aggregate 5-1).

Werder Bremen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (421 words)
Werder Bremen was founded on February 4th, 1899.
In the German Cup, Werder went to the Finals in 1989 and 1990, and finally won it in 1991.
At the end of the 2004/05 season, Werder was able to secure a chance to qualify for the 2005/06 Champion's League by finishing third in the Bundesliga; a remarkable feat, given their long, injury-prone and game-intensive season.
