TSG 1899 Hoffenheim

Their nickname is Die Kraichgauer, after the region in which they are based. The club colours are blue and white. They play their matches at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena, which is currently called the PreZero Arena for sponsorship reasons. It is a modern stadium that opened in 2009 and can hold 30,150 spectators for league matches.

Lack of tradition?

Interestingly, other clubs and some media have criticised Hoffenheim in the sense that it is not a traditional club, is artificial and does not have the right loyal fan base. In short, it lacks historical context and a traditional healthy club base.

It is similar in the German league with VfL Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig, which are largely sponsored or even wholly owned by companies. Nevertheless, Wolfsburg and Leverkusen were born from the working class and have achieved their successes in the past without the support of big business, unlike Hoffenheim. The latter was realistically formed in a village with a population of 3,300.

The origins of the club and milestones

The club is based in the Sinsheim district of Hoffenheim in the state of Baden-Württemberg. It was founded in 1899, then called TV Hoffenheim. It has borne its current name since 1945 after a merger with another club. Like many other German clubs, this club is involved in other sporting activities than football, but its membership is considerably lower compared to other clubs.

Around 2005, the first plans for promotion to the second highest competition took shape. The club wanted to achieve this by bringing former national team player Karlheinz Föster into the club management. However, the plans gradually got cracks, disputes arose and the new manager eventually left the club. It was only the arrival of coach Ralf Rangnick and others in the management team that brought real success and secured the club's promotion to the 2nd division. Bundesliga in the 2006/07 season

Notable development and progress eventually got the club to the top flight, in the 2008/09 season. This is its first ever promotion and it remains in the competition. The club's achievements are only of a local nature outside the top competition.
