Success was moderate, although by the 1930s, SCF played in the highest regional league, the Gauliga Baden. During the French occupation, for some odd reason the club name was banned, so it was called VfL Freiburg until it reverted to SCF in 1951.
Success continued only on a moderate scale in the amateur leagues. Then in 1978 they made the next step up, into the 2nd division - where they would then remain for some 15 years. In the early 90s they then moved into the top flight for the first time. The 94-95 season saw an amazing 3rd place finish, the best ever in club history. The club was noted for it's fighting spirit and team play, led by coach Volker Finke and stars Jens Todt and Argentinian goal scorer Rudolfo Cardoso. Unfortunately, both stars would soon leave for (as yet) mediocre careers with bigger clubs.
The goal in 1998-99 was merely staying up, and with a fighting performance, the "Breisgauer" achieved it. Despite difficulties, they repeated the performance the next season. Once again coach Volker Finke's squad pulled rabbits out of hats, with attractive attacking soccer. Despite dropping down a couple of years later, they popped right back up. Given the meager resources, one can't expect much more.
After 4 years in the 2.Liga wilderness, Freiburg bounced back into the Bundesliga.

Prices range from 9-43 euros (2004).
SCF virtually sells out every game, playing in a small park. Tickets are
hard to come by. Your best bet might be the official website, which has
section for folks (usually season ticket holders) trying to sell tickets
they can't use.
Fanatical, but well behaved local support. Small park means a sell-out,
averaged 24,000 in 2004.
Given the collapse of Freiburger FC, there really is no local rivalry.
Obviously other southwest teams, such as VfB Stuttgart and Karlsruher SC,
along with SSV Ulm. || Heroes
