FC Köln History
1. Fußball-Club Köln 01/07 e. V., a.k.a FC Köln, and sometimes called FC Cologne in English, were born in 1948. A merger of Kölner Ballspiel-Club 1901 and SpVgg Sülz 07 resulted in the club we know today.
With over 100,000 members, Köln is one of the biggest sports clubs in all of Germany. The club’s nickname and mascot, Die Geißböcke (“Billy Goats”) comes from an actual goat named Hennes, in honor of Hennes Weisweiler, a former player and manager.
They’d win one of the final national championships before the Bundesliga era, in 1962, and also the first Bundesliga title in 1963-64.
The club’s third, and to date final, league title came in 1977-78, where they did the double also capturing the DFB-Pokal. The closest they’ve come to Bundesliga glory since have been as runners up three times during the 1980s.
Since the late 1990s, Köln has bounced back and forth between the top two tiers of German football, never spending more than a few seasons at a time at either level. 2023-24 will mark their fifth season in a row in the Bundesliga, the longest spell at the top since their continuous 1963-1998 stretch.
As a 2. Bundesliga side, they’ve won the league title and earned direct promotion four times since 1999-2000.
Regional Rhine rivals of Köln include Borussia Mönchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen, and Fortuna Düsseldorf.
