FC Oberneuland

A small district club in Bremen that has recently come out of the shadows.

The club was founded in 1948, in the local pub "Zum Dorfkrug". There isn't much to report about, as the club wallowed in obscurity of the local Bremen amateur leagues. The finally popped up on the map when they played in the DFB Cup main rounds, qualifying as the Bremen city cup winner. In 1993, they faced Chemnitz, and got trounced 8-1. In 2003 however, they did much better, facing 1. FC Köln, finally losing 5-2 in overtime. As far as league play, in 1996, they finally made the jump into the Oberliga Niedersachsen, and eventually into the Oberliga Nord by 2004.

In the 2008 promotion playoffs for the new Regionalliga Nord, FCO kicked ass against opponents VfL Oldenburg, VfB Oldenburg, Victoria Hamburg and MTV Gifhorn.
