Eintracht Bad Kreuznach

A small club west of Mainz that has often been in the upper reaches of amateur play, but has not been able to break through to higher levels.

The club's roots go back to 1902, when it's forerunner FC Kreuznach 1902 was founded. Five years later FC merged with SC Kreuznach to become 1.FC Kreuznach. In 1932 they merged with FSV Kreuznach to become SG Eintracht Kreuznach.

Eintracht was usually in the lower half of the table in the old Oberliga Südwest of the 1950s, and aside from a couple of ventures into the 2nd division level in the early 1970s, has remained planted into regional southwestern amateur leagues. (The excursion into the 2nd division was funded by local wine celler merchant Emil Pieroth, who later became a CDU senator in Berlin.)

This stadium was built in 1965, and originally held 15,000 and was then expanded to 22,500. Moebus was a local boy who rose to the top of IG Farben and left his fortune to the city to build a golf course. Luckily they just built a mini-golf field and a proper soccer stadium instead. From 1926-65, SGE played at Sportfeld Heidenmauer, which could hold about 23-25,000. It was torn down in the 1960s.
