History

Foundation to WWII

Verein für Bewegungsspiele Stuttgart was formed through the 2 April 1912 merger of predecessor sides Stuttgarter FV and Kronen-Club Cannstatt following a meeting in the Concordia hotel in Cannstatt.

Stuttgarter Fußballverein was founded at the Zum Becher hotel in Cannstatt on 9 September 1893.[2] FV were initially a rugby club, playing games at Stöckach-Eisbahn before moving to Cannstatter Wasen in 1894. The rugby club established a football section in 1908. The team drew players primarily from local schools, under the direction of teacher Carl Kaufmann, and quickly achieved its first success; in 1909 they were runners-up to FSV 1897 Hannover in the national rugby final, losing 6-3.[3] Rugby was soon replaced by football within the club, as spectators found the game too complicated to follow.

Kronen-Klub Cannstatt

Cannstatter Fußballklub was formed as a rugby club in 1890 and also quickly established a football team. This club was dissolved after just a few years of play and the former membership re-organized themselves as FC Krone Cannstatt in 1897 to compete as a football-only side.[5] The new team joined the Süddeutschen Fußballverband (SFV) as a second division club and won promotion in 1904. Cannstatt possessed their own ground, which still exists today as the home of TSV Münster.

Following the 1912 merger of these two clubs, the combined side played in the Bezirksliga Württemberg/Baden, earning a number of top three finishes and claiming a title there in 1927.

1933 - 1945

In 1933 German football was re-organized under the Third Reich into sixteen top-flight divisions called Gauligen. Stuttgart played in the Gauliga Württemberg and enjoyed considerable success there, winning division titles in 1935, 1937, 1938, 1940, and 1943 before the Gauliga system collapsed part way through the 1944-45 season.

1950s championships

After the war VfB continued to play first division football in the Oberliga Süd, capturing titles there in 1946, 1952, and 1954. The team also made regular appearances in the German championship rounds emerging as national champion in 1950 and 1952, and finishing as runner-up in 1953. In the 1950s, the club also twice won the German Cup (1954 and 1958). The team which won four titles in eight years was led by Robert Schlienz who had lost his left arm in a car crash.

1963 Bundesliga

Due to international competition that lead to disappointing results in the 1958 and 1962 World Cup, DFB introduced a single professional league in 1963. Stuttgart's consistently good play throughout the 1950s earned them a place among the sixteen clubs that would make up the original Bundesliga. The club, as an amateur organisation and due to proverbial swabian austerity, hesitated to spend money, and some players continued to work in an everyday job. Throughout the balance of the decade and into the mid-70s the club would generally earn mid-table results. One of the few stars of the time was Gilbert Gress from Strasbourg.

1975 - 2000 era of president MV

VfB Stuttgart was in crisis in the mid 1970s, having missed new trends like sponsorship. Attempts to catch up with new levels of professionalism by spending money failed. Towards the end of the 1974/75 season, with the team in imminent danger of been relegated to Second Bundesliga, local politician Gerhard Mayer-Vorfelder was elected as new president. Yet, a tie in the final game meant that VfB would be ranked 16th and lose its Bundesliga status. The first season in second league, considered the worst in its history, ended with VfB being ranked 11th, having even lost a home game against local rival SSV Reutlingen in front of only 1200 spectators.

The young team was popular for offensive and high-scoring play, but suffered from lack of experience. At the end of 1977/78, the VfB was ranked 4th, but the average attendance of over 53,000 set the league record until the 1990s. They made another UEFA Cup semi-final appearance in 1980 and delivered a number of top four finishes on their way to their first Bundesliga title – the club's third national title – in 1984, now under coach Helmut Benthaus.

In 1992, the club clinched its fourth title in one of the closest races in Bundesliga history finishing ahead of Borussia Dortmund on goal difference. Internationally, they had been eliminated from UEFA Cup play that season (1991-92) after losing their second round match to Spanish side CA Osasuna (2:3). As national champions, the club qualified to play in the UEFA Champions League in 1992-93, but was eliminated in the first round by Leeds United after a tie-braking third match in Barcelona which was required due to coach Christoph Daum having substituted a fourth non-German player in game two.

VfB did not qualify for any European competition again until 1997 by way of their third German Cup win, with coach Joachim Löw. They enjoyed a measure of success on their return, advancing to the 1998 European Cup Winners' Cup final in Stockholm where they lost to Chelsea F.C.. Only one player of the magic triangle, captain Krassimir Balakov, remained after Giovane Elber and Fredi Bobic left.

However, Stuttgart's performance fell off after this as the club earned just mid-table results over the next two seasons despite spending money on the transfer market and for veterans like Balakov.


2000-2007 The post-MV-era return to success

Due to high debts and the lack of results, Gerhard Mayer-Vorfelder finally resigned from VfB in 2000 to take over offices at DFB, UEFA and FIFA. New president Manfred Haas had to renegotiate expensive contracts with players that seldom appeared on the field anyway. As in 1976, when MV had taken over, the team had to be rebuilt by relying on talents from the youth teams.

Halfway through the disappointing 2005-06 season, Giovanni Trappatoni was sacked and replaced by Armin Veh. The new coach was designated as a stop-gap due to having resigned from FC Hansa Rostock in 2003 to focus on his family and having no football job since 2004 except coaching his home team FC Augsburg for a season. Supported by new manager Horst Heldt, Veh could establish himself and his concept of focussing on promising inexpensive players rather than established stars.

Despite early-season losses and ensuing criticism, which included a 3-0 loss at home to Nürnberg, Veh managed to turn the collection of new players like Mexican Pavel Pardo and Brazilian Antônio da Silva and fresh local talents, including Mario Gomez, Serdar Tasci and Sami Khedira, into a strong contender that lead the league on 12 November 2006 for the first time in two years. Stuttgart established themselves among the top five and delivered a strong challenge for the Bundesliga title by winning their final eight games. In the penultimate week on 12 May 2007, Stuttgart beat Bochum 3-2 away from home, took the Bundesliga lead from FC Schalke 04 and secured a spot in the 2007-08 UEFA Champions League. After trailing 0-1 in the final match of the season against Energie Cottbus, Stuttgart came back to win 2-1 and claim their first Bundesliga title in 15 years.

In addition, VfB Stuttgart had their first ever chance to win the double as they also reached the final of the German Cup for the first time since their victory there ten years ago. Their opponents in the cup final in Berlin were 1.FC Nürnberg, a team that had beaten them twice by 3 goals in regular season, 3-0 and 4-1, but last had won the cup in 1962.
