SC Borussia Fulda

Founded 1904, the club has about 700 members. For the most part they've been a regional Hessenliga powerhouse, but not until recently have they made signs of doing anything better. Lack of financial management has apparently cut short that effort as well.

The 1998-99 season was quite memorable. Barely missing the playoffs in the previous year, Fulda totally collapsed under the financial legacy of mounting debts in that failed attempt. In fact, it looked like by midseason that they would declare bankruptcy. In addition, they were getting pummeled on the field. But they managed to raise enough money, and then with a great effort, were able to stay up as well. However the next season it was finally time to pay the piper, and Borussia were relegated.
