FC Augsburg is a German football club that was founded 112 years ago in 1907 but didn’t always go by their current name. In 1907 they played as Fußball-Klub Alemania Augsburg until 1921 where, they adopted the name BC Augsburg, before losing the ‘BC’ in 1969. FC Augsburg currently plays their home games at the WWK Arena which has a capacity of 30,660 and have done so since 2009. FC Augsburg has not seen a huge amount of success at the top level as a club over the entire history, with them spending the majority of their time in the second and third divisions of German football.
At the beginning of their time, Augsburg’s two most successful clubs, TSV Schwaben and BC Augsburg had been enjoying life in the top flight of German football, which was known as the Oberliga Sud. By 1964, BC Augsburg had dropped out of professional football and was now struggling in the third division along with TSV Schwaben. Due to their lack of success, the two clubs finally underwent a merger to become FC Augsburg.
FC Augsburg Honours
FC Augsburg’s list of honours isn’t enormous, with the majority being promotions. They won the 2. Bundesliga for the first time in 2010/11 and have remained in the top flight ever since. The club have had a total of six promotions since 1969, whilst also suffering four relegations during their history.
Augsburg’s best performance in the DFB-Pokal came in the 2009/10 season, when they reached the semi-finals of the cup competition as a second division team. They were defeated 2-0 by eventual runners-up Werder Bremen. After an impressive fifth-place finish in 2014/15, Augsburg qualified for the Europa League the following year where they would exit in the Round of 32 after losing 1-0 to Liverpool.
FC Augsburg Managerial History
Jos Luhukay enjoyed a successful period as Augsburg manager between 2009 and 2012. The Dutchman was responsible for leading the club to the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal, before guiding them to promotion to the Bundesliga where they have remained ever since. He laid the foundations for the stability and success that the club have found being regular figures in the top flight of German football ever since.
No one has taken charge of more games of FC Augsburg than Armin Veh, who has overseen 202 matches as manager of the club across two separate spells. His first came between 1990-1995, before returning to the club for a second spell between 2003-2004.
Augsburg’s two biggest local rivals are Ingolstadt and 1860 Munich. Both clubs are currently out of the Bundesliga at this moment in time, meaning any potential meeting in the near future would have to come via the DFB-Pokal. A match between Augsburg and 1860 Munich still holds the all-time attendance record at Munich’s Olympic Stadium. Augsburg also have a local rivalry with German giants Bayern Munich, whom they face in a Bavarian derby. This is traditionally their biggest match of the season in the Bundesliga and is a guaranteed sellout at the WWK Arena.
