TuS Koblenz

Originally founded in 1911, this club was renamed from TuS Neuendorf in 1982. They were a southwest 2nd division fixture in the 1960s and 1970s, but as the leagues tightened up, they were unable to take the next step and remained a regional club.

2006 saw the Koblenzers achieve their best result ever: promotion into the 2.Liga.

This was originally known as the Amerikaner-stadion. It was built in 1918 by the US-Army, which was part of the occupation force of the Rheinland after WWI. The Army used mostly for baseball and football, and usually banned Germans anyway. In 1929, it was turned over to the city and Neuendorf began to play it's games there. From 1933-45 it was known as Hermann-Goering-Kampfbahn, and the French got in the act too, changing the name to Stade de Gaulle in their short stay in 1945. In 1946, it again reverted to the city, which wisely chose a neutral name, Oberwerth, after it's location.
Tickets Quite reasonable. Ranged from 6-8 euros (2004).
Supporters Averaged 1,390 in 2004 (Oberliga), double any other club.
Heroes The best player was undoubtedly Josef "Jupp" Gauchel, who was capped 16 times for Germany (1936-42), scoring 13 times. The street where the stadium sits is named after him. Also making national team appearances were Karl Adam (3, 1951-52) and Jakob Miltz (2, 1954-56).
Beer Königsbacher, a local brewery, is a sponsor.
