The Bonner Sport-Club 01/04 e. V. is a football club from Bonn in the south of North Rhine-Westphalia . It was created in June 1965 through the merger of the Bonner FV, founded in 1901, and the Tura Bonn team formed in 1904 . The club colors are blue and red according to the old city arms of Bonn. The venue is the Sportpark Nord , which can hold around 10,000 spectators . The club played in the 2nd Bundesliga in the 1976/77 season , and currently plays in the Regionalliga West .

In the 2009/10 season, the Bonner SC finished 10th in the fourth-class Regionalliga West, before going bankrupt in the summer of 2010 and successively denied the license for the regional and NRW leagues and the Middle Rhine league. Because of the bankruptcy, only the second team (district league C), the youth football teams and the table tennis department took part in the game in the 2010/11 season . After surviving insolvency proceedings (reduction of 8 million euros in legacy) and the establishment of a new team, the first team of the Bonner SC started again in the national league in the 2011/12 season. In the following season, he was promoted to the Middle Rhine League.

The club also had a rugby department from 1967 to 1997 (now RC Bonn-Rhein-Sieg eV ), which took part in the rugby Bundesliga several times . In the initial phase of the German championship in women's football , the later disbanded team of the Bonner SC was very successful and in 1975 became second German champion.


Since the Bonner SC in 1965 essentially emerged from the merger of two Bonn clubs (Bonner FV and Tura) each with decades of tradition, the history of these two predecessor clubs is also part of the history of the BSC.

Bonn football club

Origins and establishment

The Bonn FV was founded on March 25, 1901 in the Gasthaus "Vater Arndt". The initiative to form a club came from former soccer players of the Bonn gymnastics club ("BTV"), who had previously celebrated successes beyond the city limits under the direction of the first gymnastics attendant Oskar Fräsdorf in the "combined Bonn soccer team". The team was given the name “combined” because it was made up of members of the gymnastics club as well as students and high school students.

The BTV soccer team itself had held its own competitions since 1896 and defeated the Cologne gymnastics club 4-0 in a first national game. Two years later, the Bonn team stood on the parade ground on Venusberg in the west of Bonn during the “III. Congress of the Central Committee for Popular and Youth Games "opposite the Mönchengladbach football club (then still" Munich-Gladbach "). In addition, BTV competed against the local gymnastics club in Duisburg and won 3-1. From 1898 the city of Bonn - on the initiative of the teacher, soccer sponsor and later club president Rudolf Weegmann - made a permanent playing field available on the " Kessenicher Feld", which from then on, like the Bonn Hofgartenwiese , was to be used for soccer games. In the first game in this new venue, BTV won 4-1 against the Düren gymnastics association.

With the establishment of the "Combinierte Bonn Football Team" during the Easter holidays in 1899, the successes could be continued and the newly formed team - in which only two BTV players were left - defeated Cologne FC 1899 in their first game on July 30, 1899 in the cathedral city with 3: 1. After the November second leg in Bonn, Germany, followed in 1900 more important games against SV Mönchengladbach (2-0) and a 2-2 draw against the reigning Belgian champions "Racing Club de Bruxelles" on the occasion of the "Rheinische Spielfest" " in Cologne. In December 1900 the “Combined” defeated the Frankfurt champions “FC Germania” 5-0 in Koblenz , before Fräsdorf, who was employed full-time in administration, was transferred to Koblenz and had to give up looking after the team.

Early years up to the First World War

In the autumn of 1902, the Bonn FV joined the Rheinisch-Westfälischer Spielverband and was henceforth active in District 1 . There could be no question of an extensive championship operation there, as the 35 teams involved only played 99 games. The BFV was able to make all matches victorious at first, but then lost in the game for the championship against the "Cologne Football Club 1899" with 0: 1. In the following year, however, the revenge succeeded against the same club with a 4-2 victory in Cologne-Merheim ( Weidenpescher Park ). As a result, the BFV qualified for the final of the West German championship in 1904, which was lost 1-0 to Duisburg SpV .

In the meantime, the city of Bonn had sold the Kessenicher Feld and the BFV began - with great support from its own supporters - to build a new venue on Richard-Wagner-Straße . The opening game on the "Platz an der Richard-Wagner-Strasse" took place on September 17, 1904 against "Prussia Duisburg". The BFV was also one of the strongest teams in the West German game association and won the southern district championship in the 1908/09 season , but then retired in the fight for the association championship in the second round with a 1: 3 against the Duisburg FV.

As a founding member of the introduced in season 1909/09 tens League the BFV also included on the best teams and celebrated with friendly games against Liverpool (1: 5) and Young Fellows Zurich (2: 1) its tenth anniversary club. In the 1912/13 season, the club completed the ten league in fifth place in the table. The association league was then replaced by regional leagues as part of a restructuring, in which the BFV immediately took second place behind the Cologne BC and then third place in the West German football championship. Subsequently, due to the beginning of the First World War, the game operation was largely stopped, which was later resumed under extremely adverse conditions in a "war championship round". According to historical club records, a total of 48 members - including Oskar Fräsdorf - fell victim to the war.

Theo Koenen and Josef Schümmelfeder were among the most important players who were known beyond the Bonn city limits . Both took part in international matches for the German national team. In addition to these two actors, Jean Schwister was also regularly appointed to the West German selection .

After the First World War until the introduction of the new Gauliga

Ludwig Trapet took over the management of the club after the war, which from then on had to fear that it would remain in the top division and was only able to ensure this with two victories in the last two games. Before that, in 1920 the grandstand in the local square on Richard-Wagner-Straße had burned down and was rebuilt with the help of a collection campaign among the supporters - who were able to acquire shares in the association - as well as a grant from the state and a loan from the city administration. On the occasion of the 20-year existence of the club with VfR Mannheim , against which they lost 3-1, and VVA Amsterdam , which they defeated with the same result, prominent opponents were invited. Also worth mentioning this year was a friendly game against the ASV Hertha Wien club , which even received the enormous sum of 10,000 marks for its participation at the time, as well as the game of a Bonn team consisting of BFV and Tura Bonn players and against won a Cologne selection 4-1 and can be seen as the original team of the later Bonner SC.

The BFV merged with “FC Germania” in August 1922 and from then on went under the official name “Bonner Fußballverein 1901 (United BFV and FC Germania)” of the members failed. Two months later, the “Salamander” swimming club joined this new club, with the original swimming department ceasing to operate after just one year.

During this time - between 1922 and 1926 - the BFV and Tura played for the first time in a joint championship round, with the BFV six and Tura only winning one of the eight derbies . With Willi Hutter , who moved to Bonn for work, the BFV got prominent reinforcement in 1925 with a former two-time national player and with the new addition beat the West German champions of 1922 and 1923 ( Arminia Bielefeld ) in a spectacular friendly 9-1.

When the West German Game Association split the top level up into district classes from the 1926/27 season onwards , three groups of eight teams each formed the first district class in the Rhine district . The BFV was placed in the second group, while Tura Bonn was placed in the first group, which prevented games between these teams. Due to large protests because of the low number of games, a single-track 1st district class with 13 clubs was introduced for the 1929/30 season - after a transition year in the previous season with two groups - in which both the BFV and Tura participated. From then on, the BFV was accompanied by variable successes, which were able to occupy fifth place in the table in this new class in each of the first two seasons. In the 1930/31 season, Matthias Heidemann from SV Victoria Köln came to Bonn, a later national player who, after moving to Werder Bremen, also won the 3-2 victory at the 1934 World Cup in Italy against the as a “ miracle team “Designated team from Austria in Naples was on the pitch. Another important player was Sepp Stadler , who with Heideman and Sutter formed one of the best attacking formations of his time.

For the 1931/32 season, the top division in the Rhine district was again divided into three groups and the BFV won 25 of 26 games in group 2 . Nevertheless, he only finished fourth overall and in the following season the class could only just be held.

The BFV in the time of National Socialism

After the Nazis came to power in 1933, football was reformed following the political reorganization in 16 districts. The Bonn FV played from then on in the division of Gau XI Mittelrhein, which was planned as a division of ten, but was later increased to eleven clubs at short notice . After a 4: 5 opening defeat at Cologne's CfR , the BFV finished fourth in the new league at the end of the first season. At that time, the club had to leave its only leased home ground on Richard-Wagner-Straße because the owner had sold the area for development. Until the completion of its own stadium on Dottendorfer Strasse / Friedrich-Ebert-Allee in 1938, the team played in the Schmidt-Schneiders stadium of the Tura rival in the mid- 1930s .

Although Schümmelfeder, a former club icon, took over the training management, the BFV found itself in the relegation battle of the Gauliga Mittelrhein after a changeable start to the 1934/35 season . With a 2-1 victory over Eintracht Trier , the fall into the second division could be averted.

After the rise of the Tura, there were now two clubs in Bonn in the top division, both of which should even play for the top spots. The BFV finished third in the table after late home defeats against the eventual champions Cologne CfR and VfR Köln 04 rrh had ruined further ambitions. The following season 1936/37 was very mixed for the BFV and with the seventh place at the end of the season - two places behind the new rival SV Beuel 06 - the good result of the previous year could not be confirmed.

The development continued to deteriorate, which led to the fact that the BFV was on the 13th match day of the 1937/38 season for the first time on a relegation zone, from which he could no longer free himself until the end of the season. The 0-1 defeat against Alemannia Aachen finally sealed that the BFV had to relegate to the second division for the first time in the club's history. The main reasons for this decline were numerous players leaving and the early death of Willi Hutter.

The BFV went into the first season in the new stadium on Friedrich-Ebert-Allee as the favorite to be promoted again, as almost all of the important players remained loyal to the club. After the superior championship in the second group of the district class, however, the club only finished second in the qualifying games behind SG Düren 99 and could not reach the season goal in the last season before the outbreak of World War II .

After the start of the war, the Gauliga championship was not held as planned and the clubs reduced their games to the regional or even local level. From then on, the BFV took part in the "Spielgemeinschaft Bonn / Sieg", with this league being characterized by very different team strengths, which often led to unusual results. This game class was discontinued in November 1939 and replaced by the "war game community on the Middle Rhine", where the BFV was sorted into the second group. In this season, which lasted until March 1940, the BFV took second place in the table - but by a considerable margin.

This was followed by the reintroduction of the Gauliga for the 1940/41 season under the name "Division Class", in which the BFV was allowed to participate, although in 1939 it was relegated from this league. Another relegation was finally prevented after a long fight by a 3: 3 against VfR Cologne . At the latest after the beginning of the war against the Soviet Union , a constant game operation was unthinkable and the success strongly depended on which players were on home leave or which guest players were available (according to the club's history, 383 of 886 club members took part in the war as soldiers ). The BFV played until February 1943, before the declaration of " total war " led to numerous withdrawals from clubs in the leagues. For the 1943/44 season, a Gauliga was introduced again, in which BFV players participated as part of the "KSG Bonn" war syndicate. After the invasion of the Allied forces in Normandy , gaming operations largely collapsed, although KSG Bonn still played a few games despite the constant threat of air attacks.

The BFV in the post-war period and entry into professional football

Pin Bonner football club BFV 1901 from the 1950s

Many former BFV players never returned from the war or were still in captivity for several years, such as Peter Herbst, who did not return until 1948. Nevertheless, with the help of the British occupying power, a league could be put together, which began operations on November 4, 1945 and also incorporated the BFV there. In this league, in which in addition to the Bonn clubs with SG Düren 99 and BC Euskirchen - along with a British selection of the 5th Guards Brigade - two clubs outside Bonn took part, Düren became champions, whereby all sports organizations had to be dissolved at the end of the year and every new establishment had to be dissolved The approval of the Allied authorities was required, but this was generously granted by officers who were mostly interested in sports .

In 1946 a reorganization of Middle Rhine football was intended and the elite class should consist of 51 clubs in four parallel groups. This was rejected by 16 previous top division clubs - including the BFV - as a "football stew" and led to a separate league formation, from which the term "separatist group" arose. However, when the three football associations Niederrhein, Mittelrhein and Westphalia thought about the introduction of a joint upper league and only clubs from the associations came into question, the breakaway clubs returned after a successful intervention by Peco Bauwens and played in Group 5 from December 1946 District Middle Rhine, whereby two teams from this league were allowed to move up to the new Oberliga West and nine other teams to the likewise new division league at the end of the season. The BFV qualified by the ninth place in the table for this division league.

In this second-class league, the BFV played for a long time for the top of the table against Sülz 07, which was to merge with Cologne-based BC to form 1. FC Köln during the 1947/48 season . In the end it reached third place after a 1-1 in March 1948 against the future top club and a final 0-1 home defeat against Godesberg 08 . In the following season, the BFV - among other things after a 2-1 away win at 1. FC Köln - together with Cologne, which had been in the promotion games against Rhenania Würselen in the previous season (after a decisive goal by the later national coach Jupp Derwall ) was unable to prevail, temporarily taking first place. 1. FC Köln kept hurrying on and the BFV finished the season in third place in the table.

In 1949, an important step towards professional football followed, and from the 1949/50 season onwards, the West German Football Association set up three divisions as “contractual leagues” for a total of 48 teams - including two second division groups. The BFV decided on July 27, 1949 to introduce contract player football and received the license required to participate in the 2nd Oberliga West . However, this step was underestimated overall by the club's management and important player departures, which could not be compensated, meant that the BFV ended the season knocked down in last place and had to return to the amateur camp.

From fourth class to the merger with the Tura

From the 1950/51 season onwards, the contract players' team, which was set up a year earlier, was in Group 2 of the Rheinbezirksliga Mittelrhein , the top amateur class at the time and the third-highest level in German football. The beginning turned out to be promising, but many leaks in the professional camp had a lasting negative effect and the BFV only finished the season in which the club celebrated its 50th anniversary in sixth place. In the same year, the club lost its last area outside of football with the very successful athletics department. The negative trend continued and after two eighth places in the following two years, the BFV reached another low point in its history with the fall into fourth class - after the relegations in 1938 and 1950.

In the first group of the district class, however, it became clear that the BFV remained almost unrivaled in the 1954/55 season by clearly leading the table with only four minus points after 18 game days and finally returning safely to the top amateur class now called Landesliga Mittelrhein . For the first time, considerations were concretized to realize a merger between the BFV and the Tura, but this failed because of the numerous traditionalists in both clubs. Mainly due to mutual friendlies against 1. FC Köln (1: 2) and Schalke 04 (2: 2) it became clear that an opportunity to bundle the common forces in Bonn had been missed, which one would mourn later afterwards. After returning to the regional league, the BFV acted at a mediocre level, but in the end had to go back to the fourth division. Eighth place - and one point and one position behind the Tura - meant that the BFV could not qualify for the now single-track Association League Middle Rhine , as only the seven best teams from both groups were accepted.

As already two years before, the BFV quickly made it to the top of the table in the state league and was finally able to confidently put the promotion back into action with a record number of 135 goals (with 42 goals conceded). This performance gave the club a lasting boost and in the first year of their return the BFV stormed to the top of the table. In the end, the club took second place behind the Mittelrheinmeister SV Bergisch Gladbach . Only one year later, the BFV followed the club from Bergisch Gladbach and became champions of the Middle Rhine in the 1958/59 season. Despite a 2: 5 defeat in the first game against Baesweiler, the club was able to stabilize within the first half of the season and, after a 5: 1 win against FV Godesberg , overtook Viktoria Alsdorf and Siegburger SV to win the autumn championship . The BFV then secured the title itself three game days before the end with a 3-2 win in the top match against Alsdorf. In the subsequent battle for the West German championship, the Bonn team were defeated by the Lower Rhine champions TuS Duisburg 48/99 after a 3-1 lead in Duisburg with a clear 3: 8. The promotion to the "2. Oberliga West ”- and the associated return to professional business - the BFV secured itself in the qualifying games with a 4-1 win against SpVg Beckum .

The stay in this second highest German division should last four years in the second attempt and started very promisingly when the team was able to establish itself consistently in the top third of the table, which its preliminary climax in the first season with a sensational 1-0 away win against Wuppertaler SV found. At the end of the first half of the season, the BFV surprisingly took third place and even fueled speculation about an imminent rise to the top class. Although there was a gap to the three best-placed teams in the back series, fourth place for the BFV in the 1959/60 season was probably the greatest success in the club's history. With increased ambitions, the club went into the next season, but could not meet these expectations with tenth place. A high point of this season, however, was a trip to Africa by the club at the turn of 1960/61, for which the club played in Cameroon and Togo as part of a development program run by the Foreign Office . However, the negative sporting trend continued and after a season with the 14th place in the final table it became known that the club had also accumulated a mountain of debt of 74,000 marks from the "adventure of professional football". Despite great appeals to the team to consolidate the club's economic base through good performances, the last professional season 1962/63 ended in a debacle when the BFV graced the end of the table with only two wins, five draws and thus 9:51 points.

Back in amateur sport, in the Mittelrhein Association League , the BFV quickly found itself - despite different goals - in the relegation battle there too and in the end was only able to save itself after a 2-1 win in the decider against Baesweiler (the game was played in the Cologne race track ). After only one more year, the sporting descent could no longer be prevented with the penultimate place, but this should no longer matter in view of the imminent merger with Tura Bonn to the new club "Bonner Sportclub 01/04". The management of the BFV decided to take this step on February 23, 1965, thus enabling the birth of the new club, on which the Tura management had already made a decision in 1958. The BFV was able to win the last derby against Tura with 3: 2 - despite a clear superiority of Tura. The last championship game, however, the BFV lost at home to BC Efferen after a disappointing performance with 1: 5.

Gymnastics and lawn games Bonn

The official founding of the association is given as the year 1904, although the Tura did not come into being until 1921 as a merger of three clubs, which in turn were born in different years.

Development of the predecessor clubs until 1921

FC Normannia 03

On May 31, 1903, the student Wilhelm Rick founded the “Normannia Football Club” with a few comrades in the “Zum Lukas” restaurant and was to remain the club's first chairman until 1919. The club colors were black and yellow and the team entered their matches with appropriately colored stripes. The first game took place on a pitch behind the municipal slaughterhouse against "FC Rhenania", whereby Normannia had to leave this venue only a year later because they did not comply with the rules of the Rheinisch-Westfälischer Spielverband , which the club had just joined. corresponded. From then on, Normannia was to temporarily share the Kessenicher field with the BFV and “FC Germania” before using the municipal playground on Adolfsplatz (later: “Frankenplatz”).

In terms of sport, the club has been active in the third and thus lowest class since joining the game. Although the Normannia was mostly to be found there in the top places and was able to play steadily for the district championship, a promotion to the higher second division failed regularly. The club became known primarily because it left the Rheinisch-Westfälischer Spielverband in 1907 and, together with clubs from Bonn, Neuenahr and Düren, set up a counter-association ("Bonner Verband"). Since the powerful gaming association from then on forbade all its members to play against the breakaway clubs, the Normannia had no choice but to return.

In addition to the normal championship games, the Normannia often played against domestic military selection teams and according to the history of the club, 54 of the 60 club members were to go to World War I and most of them would not return from there - or were seriously injured. From then on it became more and more difficult to put together a powerful team and the remaining club members joined the football department of the Bonn gymnastics club in 1919.

Borussia - Club for lawn games 04

The club from Bonn's old town was founded in 1904 by Robert Bowinkelmann and his brothers Peter and Heinrich, initially as “FC Regina” and renamed “FC Borussia” two years later. After the club had not previously participated in the championship game operation and had completed its games on the square on Kölnstrasse (called: "Kölle-Platz"), where today's Sportpark Nord is located, the club did not join the Rheinisch until the 1908/09 season -Westfälischen Spielverband in third grade. The team, which ran up in red jerseys with a Prussian eagle , was able to achieve the championship and promotion to the second class straight away and was even able to march through to the "A-class" after just one more year. Since the start of the league, the game has been played on the city's Adolfsplatz .

In 1912 Borussia played for the championship in the A class and lost against SSV Vingst 05 with 1: 2 after extra time . Borussia was then also badly affected by the First World War and participation in the games that were still being played during wartime proved difficult, as the city also banned the use of the sports field on Adolfsplatz from 1916. From then on, Borussia “rented” the “FC Germania” venue, which resulted in not inconsiderable additional financial burdens. In the 1916/17 season, Borussia finally won the championship in the A-class.

After the end of the First World War, the football department of the "AV Eiche" joined Borussia, although this original heavy athletics club had only recently been joined by the "Sport-Club Bonn", which, however, had no longer seen any development opportunities within the club. Only a short time later, Borussia called themselves “Club für Rasenspiele 04” (CfR) and from then on formed a very strong team. When Gauligen was introduced as the top regional league for the 1919/20 season, the CfR was able to qualify for the league in its region after three wins in qualifying games against Cologne clubs. In the middle of 1919 the club moved to Bornheimer Strasse, where numerous members built a new venue on the leased site. Despite some respectable successes in friendly games (especially against the big Bonn FV), the CfR had to accept relegation in 1921. In the same year it was merged with the football division of the Bonn gymnastics club.

Bonn gymnastics club

After the departure of Oskar Fräsdorf, who founded the BTV soccer team in 1898, and the result of the Bonn soccer club in March 1901, soccer was only played in the gymnastics club again in 1912. A team was finally formed again in 1913, which consisted of gymnasts - for the purpose of balancing out gymnastics - and played their games in a black and white outfit on "Kölle-Platz". The connection to the West German Game Association was preceded by a tough struggle, as the BTV as a whole already belonged to the German Gymnastics Association and membership of a gymnastics club in the WSV was not intended. However, after a successful intervention by FA Schmidt, the connection finally succeeded.

In January 1914, "FC Phoenix" joined the football department of BTV and significantly increased the quality of the team with a large number of good games. However, this could not pay off in successes due to the First World War, since in this case too the bloodletting was serious. After the war, in 1919, with the help of FC Normannia, which had previously joined, BTV was placed in the A class. The next goal was to set up a venue, and a suitable piece of land could be found on “Lievlingsweg”. After a one-year construction phase, the new stadium with a capacity of around 10,000 spectators was officially inaugurated on May 8, 1921. Only three days earlier, the “Club for Lawn Games 04” had joined the BTV football department, and this new club was now known as “Bonner Turnverein e. V, Department of Gymnastics and Lawn Games ”, from which the short form“ TuRa ”(or more commonly:“ Tura ”) later developed.

This new club now even had two venues and developed a special focus on its youth work. During this time, a large number of official events and tours laid the foundation for the feeling of togetherness and deep anchoring in the local population, and the term “Tura-Geist”, which is still widespread in Bonn today, was born.

The first Tura years

Although the association had already merged to form Tura Bonn in 1921, it was not officially founded in the statutes until May 1922. Due to the relegation of the CfR from the top division, the Tura had to compete in the A-class, but was able to get promoted again in 1922 after a 6: 3 victory in the decisive away game against "TSV 93 Cologne". This was followed in November 1923 by a major dispute over the club's supporters both in the German Gymnastics Federation and in the German Football Association . The gymnastics association insisted that the clubs concerned had to make a decision and even strived for their own football game operation in the future. The Tura survived this dispute by splitting the club into three divisions, from now on only the area “lawn games 04” should belong to the West German gaming association.

The club played in the stadium on Lievingsweg, which after a lot of expansion work and the official completion on July 24, 1927 was named "Schmidt-Schneider Stadium". In terms of sport, the Tura was active in the top division with variable success until 1926 and could not win a championship game against local rivals BFV between 1923 and 1926. When the top level was divided into three groups as the 1st district class for the 1926/27 season , the association assigned the Tura to Group 1 . For the 1929/30 season, the association brought the top divisions back together into a league and the Tura Bonn was able to qualify for it. The club's best player in this era was Peter Herbst , who, together with winger Leo Betzgen, formed a dangerous formation on the left and played 17 games in several regional national teams. The single track of the elite league was lifted after only one year and the Tura occupied a midfield position in his group. Another highlight was to be a friendly game against the German runner-up FC Schalke 04 - led by Ernst Kuzorra - in the Schmidt-Schneider Stadium in 1933 , which Tura lost 4-2.

The Tura in the Nazi era

When the new Gauliga was founded in the Middle Rhine area, the Tura - in contrast to the BFV rival - was not one of the original ten candidates, which led to violent protests, as six Cologne teams were also to be included in the league and this decision was only made on green table was made. When further discrepancies within the league formation process led to the decision to increase to eleven clubs, another club from Cologne was added instead of the Tura with "Rhenania Köln".

After a good start in the further course of the season, the desired promotion moved further and further into the distance and in the end the club missed the promotion with a fourth place behind Blau-Weiß 06 Köln , the up-and-coming SV Beuel 06 and SV Victoria Köln with the four Elbern brothers clear. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the club, the intention to move up to the Gauliga was emphasized with the first 10-1 home win against Blauweiß Friesdorf , but at the end of the first half of the season, after a few defeats, only took third place in the table. After the two teams in front of the Tura, Victoria Köln and Vingst 05, were beaten at home, the Tura became champions of group 2 after a 1-1 draw in Frechen with one point ahead of the Victoria champions of group 2, with the Bonn team being defeated by Victoria benefited on the last day of the match. In the promotion round, the Tura beat SV Oberstein 3-0 and rose to the Gauliga due to the better goal difference against Oberstein.

Tura impressed straight away as a newcomer to the Gauliga and at times even climbed to the top of the table by five points. Before the last day of the match this had melted down to just one point, but a home win against “Kölner SC” would have been enough for the championship. This decisive game was lost 1-0 after a penalty in stoppage time and the "Cologne CfR" was able to win the title "Gauligameister am Mittelrhein" with a victory of its own at the last moment. However, the Tura received recognition from many sides for this achievement and the club even suggested a game round for the Gauliga runners-up, which was not implemented despite some promises from prominent clubs.

This was followed by a difficult second season for the Tura in the Gauliga and a sporting decline, which meant that the club was quickly in acute danger of relegation. The new rivalry with the club SV Beuel 06 , which had recently been promoted to the Gauliga, was even more explosive, and the Tura management accused it of having lured a number of players to Beuel. In the end, the club with the penultimate place could only just get the league - with two points ahead of TuS Neuendorf . In contrast, the Tura was able to reach the top 32 teams in the DFB Cup , which has been held since 1934, after a 4-2 win against the North Hessian champions Spielverein 06 Kassel , where they lost 2-0 at Eintracht Braunschweig .

Just like the local rival BFV, the Tura was in danger of relegation in the 1937/38 season and was at times the bottom of the Gauliga. After a few victories, with large supporters being mobilized for important away games, and above all by the victory against the BFV, which suddenly increased the relegation worries there, the Tura freed themselves towards the end of the season and were able to win a 1-1 draw against the Mülheimer SV save sporty on the final day. It was the last season for the time being in the Tura Stadium under the name Schmidt-Schneiders-Stadion . Since the club management could not meet the financial interest obligations for the loan granted, the stadium was foreclosed by the city of Bonn for 85,000 Marks and renamed "Post-Stadion" after the new owner.

The performances in the league consolidated again at Tura in the last season before the outbreak of war and before the last matchday there was even the possibility of the Middle Rhine Championship, assuming a personal victory in the top game against Sülz 07 and a simultaneous defeat of Troisdorf 05 . After a 2-0 lead in Sülz in the meantime, the Tura equalized to 2-2, which was not enough and made Sülz the champions, as Sülz had scored a better goal difference than Troisdorf.

After the outbreak of war, the Tura first took part in the "Spielgemeinschaft Bonn / Sieg" and from November 1939 in the "Kriegsspielgemeinschaft am Mittelrhein" (Group 2), which lasted until March 1940, and took third place in the table. In the reintroduced - and known as the "area class" - Gauliga played alongside the BFV and the Tura to remain in the top division and was ultimately able to ensure this with a 0-0 win against Düren 99. In 1941/42 the Tura formed a war game community together with the Post-Sportverein Bonn and from then on competed as KSG Bonn in the games in the division class until the end of the war , with BFV players later also joining this community.

The Tura after the war and loyalty to amateur football

Just like the BFV, after the short adventure in the Bonn League , which was expanded by the 5th Guards Brigade , the Tura participated in the separatist group , which later became Group 5 of the Middle Rhine district. In this league, in which the best two teams were able to qualify for the Oberliga West and nine others in the division league below , the Tura only finished eleventh at the end of the season. In a subsequent elimination round, the promotion to second place behind Troisdorf 05 and before Beuel 06 - who also qualified - could still be realized retrospectively.

In the two years in which the Tura acted together with the BFV in Group 2, the club landed in sixth place in the table. In a general assembly on July 16, the club unanimously rejected the introduction of contract players and thus advocated remaining in amateur football. Although a large part of the high-performance clubs had migrated to professional football, the Tura played a very mixed season in the amateur league and ended up taking a disappointing eleventh place. The club made more talk of its new ideas for team support when several coaches were employed one after the other who had been trained at the Sport University in Cologne . It started here in 1949/50 Wolfgang Troßbach , who later became multiple German champion in the 110 m hurdles . He also looked after the Tura in the historic game against 1. FC Kaiserslautern.

Years in the amateur leagues, German vice amateur championship until the merger with the BFV

After the disappointment in the previous season, the Tura played again for the top of the table in the 1950/51 season, also kept the BFV rivals at a distance and was thus again the best sporting team in Bonn. Ultimately, the Tura took second place with a comfortable 5-point gap on the third-placed and had spectacularly defeated the later Middle Rhine champion Troisdorf 05 at home with 6: 1, especially during the season . In the 1951/52 season, the Tura fought head-to-head with the Godesberger FV . In the end, both teams finished in first place with equal points and the regulations stipulated a play-off in this case, which Tura Bonn won 3-0 in the Beuel stadium . Although Tura was the favorite in the game for the Middle Rhine Championship against "Viktoria Alsdorf", the club lost 1-0 at home in the first leg. Despite a great deal of optimism, the Tura also lost the second leg, with the amount of the 2: 7 defeat being particularly surprising. After a comparatively disappointing fifth place in the following season, the club won the runner-up again in the 1953/54 season behind "Rapid Cologne". Before the last game day, the Tura was only one point behind Rapid. The 3-2 victory of Tura against Godesberger FV was ultimately not enough for first place, as Rapid was able to defeat rivals SC Fortuna Köln 4-2 at the same time . However, the supremacy in Bonn was lastingly consolidated, as the BFV even had to relegate to fourth class in the same season.

This was followed by another runner-up behind SV Bergisch Gladbach in the 1954/55 season , although the championship had been given frivolously mainly by two late defeats and a draw. The best time of the Tura was now over for the rest of the 1950s and the club finished the 1955/56 season only in seventh place, which even only just managed to stay in the third division, as only seven teams were involved from both third division groups for the now single-track Verbandsliga Mittelrhein . While the BFV, which was relegated after this merger, was able to return confidently in the following year, the Tura disappointed with twelfth place in the table. When the BFV then began to soar in the league and won the runner-up, the Tura rose in the same season 1957/58 as the table penultimate even in the fourth division.

As could be seen before at the BFV, the Tura's one-year stay in the national league was also suitable for a new start. The Tura also confidently secured their return to the association league as champions - with a six point lead over "SV Schlebusch" and only three defeats. Once there, the team lost the first three games, but was able to improve steadily and finally took fourth place, somewhat surprisingly. After a transition year with the mediocre seventh place in the table, the Tura began at the latest from the 1961/62 season on for their second successful era in the top amateur class. Mainly responsible for this was Fritz Machate, a former player of FC St. Pauli and Dresdner SC , who was to act as coach from now on.

This extremely successful season 1961/62 started disappointingly when the Tura finished only tenth after the first half of the season with a negative point ratio. A winning streak followed, which initially reduced the deficit to just six points. Further victories against “Übach-Palenberg” and on the last match day against “VfL 99 Köln” ensured that Tura won the Middle Rhine Championship with just five loss points in the back series. Then the team prevailed in the fight for the West German championship with a 1-0 win against Arminia Bielefeld and a 1: 1 against "Duisburg 08". The final round of the German amateur championship followed . After a 2-1 win against the amateurs of Werder Bremen in the Weserstadion , the Tura moved into the final in the Wuppertal Stadium at the Zoo , where the team faced the Berlin club SC Tegel . Tegel won this exciting game after a free kick goal 1-0 and the Tura had to be satisfied with the runner-up amateur championship. The Tura deliberately decided not to become a professional because of the financial problems that this caused the BFV and thus retained the amateur sport.

There were two more runners-up in the league behind Düren and SV Schlebusch . The club closed the last season 1964/65 with a balanced point account in seventh place in the table, before the plans for the formation of a joint club with the BFV, which had been forged in 1958, could be implemented after the management of the BFV had a corresponding decision had seized. The last championship game of the Tura was lost against SpVg Frechen 20 with 2: 3. Although the Tura was officially dissolved on June 18, 1965 - like the BFV - a Tura team continued to play the final in the district cup and after the 8: 1 win there against "TV Rheindorf" also in the Middle Rhine Cup against "BC Oberbruch", which the team lost 3-1 after extra time .

Bonn sports club

Foundation phase

The foundation, initially planned for May 21, 1965, was not carried out until June 18 of that year due to the fact that three-quarters of the club members did not appear. The club received the official name "Bonner Sportclub 01/04" and chose red and blue as the club colors according to the city ​​arms of that time . In addition to a football department, other areas for athletics , basketball and shooting , as well as table tennis in 1966 and rugby in 1967 were opened, of which later only the last two departments mentioned and then exclusively table tennis were to assert themselves. The establishment of the BSC triggered a great deal of euphoria in the city and raised hopes that it could also play a major role in top-class sport in the future. The Gronaustadion served as the home arena , although in the medium term the construction of a covered stadium with a capacity of more than 30,000 spectators was targeted.

The first season of 1965/66 began the new club in the Association League Middle Rhine and thus took the place of the Tura Bonn, who had previously completed their last season in this third highest division - and highest amateur level. The team supervised by Günther Glomb was able to win 2-1 in the first game of the season on August 21, 1965 against the amateurs of Bayer 04 Leverkusen and from then on established itself in the top positions. At the end of the season, however, the BSC only finished second behind the superior master “Düren 99”, which actually would not have been eligible for promotion. Since Düren, however, refrained from participating in professional football, the Bonn team took part in the promotion rounds as a substitute, but where they had no chance. When Fortuna Düsseldorf and Rot-Weiss Essen were allowed to move up to the Bundesliga and thus two places were vacant in the Regionalliga West below, the BSC played another elimination game against the original Regionalliga relegated VfB Bottrop , who beat Bottrop 5-0 won. Luck turned to Bonn, however, when the football association decided that Bottrop, as a club that had already been relegated to the sport, was not entitled to remain and thus the game against the BSC was inadmissible. Thus, the Bonner SC rose to the Regionalliga West .

The club started the new adventure in paid football with a number of newcomers, with four former licensed players from Schalke 04 being signed. Nevertheless, the team had a difficult time from the start and was only able to secure their first victory with a 1-0 win against SC Viktoria Köln on matchday ten . Despite a surprising 1-0 away win at Alemannia Aachen , the relegation - even despite the change of coach to Fred Harthaus - after the 1: 2 against Arminia Bielefeld on the penultimate matchday was unavoidable.

Middle Rhine Championships 1968 and 1972

The BSC played again in the Association League Middle Rhine and went into the new season 1967/68 with the previously active coach Helmut Gans at the BFV . Like two years before, the BSC competed against "Düren 99" and the amateurs of 1. FC Köln for the top of the table. The Bonn team went into the last game with a two-point lead over Cologne and secured the Middle Rhine title with a 1-1 draw against Bayer Leverkusen. This also made it possible to return to the regional league and the BSC competed in the qualifying games against "SSV Hagen", "Spvg Erkenschwick" and "Eintracht Duisburg". Despite a defeat in the home game against Duisburg and a total of three draws, the Regionalliga promotion was achieved.

Before the next attempt to gain a foothold in professional football, the club reported some spectacular transfers from Alemannia Aachen , including the 49-time Uruguayan national player Horacio Troche , who became known because he met Uwe Seeler during the 1966 World Cup in England had slapped. Nevertheless, the club only played against relegation again and played a real "relegation final" against Preußen Münster on the last day of the match in the Gronaustadion , which the BSC won 5-1. In the subsequent 1969/70 season, the team developed a great home strength and lost only two games at home in the entire season. This ensured that this year the class could be secured quite safely - with a gap of eight points.

It was the last season in the old Gronaustadion. The club moved to the "Sportpark Nord", to the place where the old "Kölle-Platz" used to be. Due to the tight financial situation, the club's management was forced to sell some top performers. The 1970/71 season started with a 4-2 win against former Bundesliga club Alemannia Aachen - the first championship game in Sportpark Nord - promising and some talents from the club, such as the young Hans Bongartz , fueled optimism about staying up. In the course of the season, however, it became clear that the loss of substance was too great and the team had to start again in the third division due to the worse goal difference compared to VfR Neuss .

For the goal of recovery, Helmut Gans was hired again as a coach. This was followed by an exciting championship race against "Jülich 10", which the BSC then faced on the last match day at Sportpark Nord with only one point behind. The Bonn team won this final of the Middle Rhine Championship 4-1. The ascent was then missed, which was mainly due to the 4-0 defeat at Sportfreunde Siegen . Another highlight should be a tour through the former Soviet Union , where the BSC played in Leningrad (today: "St. Petersburg") and Volgograd (the former "Stalingrad").

The 1972/73 season turned out to be disappointing and the BSC only finished in seventh place in the table. Part of the responsibility for this was probably also the statement by coach Gans in the middle of the season that he only wanted to remain coach until the end of the season, and that speculations subsequently arose about an early end of Gans' term of office and the successor to the coach. The highlight of this season was the entry into the circle Cup final, in which the BSC after an exciting game with 9:10 to penalties the association Beuel 06 defeated. For the season 1973/74 the omens were bad from the beginning, because the BSC due to the formation of a regional league with only two seasons - the later “2. Bundesliga “- no opportunity for promotion was available. At the end of the season the BSC was runner-up behind Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

Before the 1974/75 season, the club's management officially announced the goal of wanting to advance. However, the team could not quite meet the high expectations and only finished third behind Bayer 04 Leverkusen and "SC Brühl". Particularly disappointing at this point was the very low number of spectators, which reached its low point in the home game against "Westwacht Weiden" with 273 observers.

Developments up to the present

From 1971/72 to 1975/76 the BSC played again for four years in the Verbandsliga Mittelrhein before becoming second class and being promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga North in the 1976/77 season . In the season , the league could be achieved in 16th place, but on July 9, 1977 the license withdrawal by the DFB followed - one of the first in German football. After that, it was mostly played in the association league and upper league . In 1984/85 the BSC won the title in the Mittelrhein Association League for the fourth time.

In 1994/95 he rose again to the Regionalliga West / Südwest. Since 1995 the policy of the association has been strongly determined by the patron John Viol , a Bonn entrepreneur and mineral dealer from Zimbabwe, whose companies were the most important, at times the only notable sponsor, but also the association's lender and he himself was long-term president until 2001, later chairman of the supervisory board.

From 1998/99 the BSC played again - with a small interruption in 2000/01 (Association League) - in the Oberliga Nordrhein. The team won in 1996/97 the title of the Oberliga Nordrhein and in 2000/01 for the fifth time the title in the Verbandsliga Mittelrhein. In the first year after promotion to the league, relegation could be secured with a tenth place without major problems. In the following year, the federal townspeople again reached a midfield position. In the 2003/04 and 2004/05 seasons, Bonn only narrowly escaped relegation. In 2004 she only saved the better goal difference and in 2005 they were relegated in terms of sport, but could remain in the league due to the license not granted for SV Adler Osterfeld and Borussia Freialdenhoven .

For the 2005/06 season, the Bonner SC signed Reinhold Fanz, a Bundesliga experienced coach, with whose help some new players found their way to Bonn. The league season 2005/06 ended the club in second place in the Oberliga Nordrhein, behind the second representation of Borussia Mönchengladbach . Thus, the promotion to the regional league was missed extremely narrowly.

After a weak start, Reinhold Fanz took his hat at the beginning of the 2006/07 season and was replaced by his former assistant coach Asif Šarić . Saric managed to lead the team out of the table cellar upstairs, so that they had nothing to do with relegation this year, but was one of the best teams in the second half of the season. In the 2007/08 season, the Bonn team's goal was to qualify for the newly introduced three-track regional league . A place in the top four would have been necessary for this. The season goal was clearly missed with a tenth place in the table. After all, the BSC was still able to qualify for the fifth-class NRW league , which was also newly created for the 2008/09 season . As champions of the premiere season, the club was promoted to the regional soccer league in the 2009/10 season , while qualifying for the DFB Cup was missed by a 3: 5 on penalties in the state cup final of the Mittelrhein soccer association against FC Germania Dattenfeld . In order to advance, President Viol switched to the Supervisory Board, the new President was the marketing professor and football marketing expert Tobias Kollmann . However, this resigned a few game days before the end of the season because of the club's financial situation, which made it impossible to continue working successfully. In particular, viol's debts of more than six million euros and the reduction in sponsoring activities put a strain on the club.

After the club had achieved relegation in the 2009/10 regional league season with a tenth place in the table, the DFB announced on June 4, 2010 that it would not be granted a license for the 2010/11 regional league season for economic reasons. For the club it was now a matter of at least securing the funding to continue playing in the NRW League. However, the required license for this fifth-highest division was initially not granted. On July 21, 2010, the insolvency proceedings were opened before the Bonn District Court. On July 23, 2010, the club announced that the first team would not participate in any match operations. In consultation with the insolvency administrator, an attempt should be made to save the association as part of a plan insolvency proceedings. The youth department was able to take part in the 2010/11 season as planned and the table tennis department was able to continue playing. Karsten Hutwelker , who had been appointed as the new coach of the first men's team, was appointed the new coach of the U19s and, together with the sporting director Mike Rietpietsch, was supposed to promote the sporting rebuilding in voluntary work. In the youth sector, a basic framework should be created for future men's teams. An attempt was made to secure the further financing of the youth department through a trust account beyond the 2010/11 season, to save the Bonner SC as a club and to keep it from liquidation.

But already in November Mike Rietpietsch and Alexander Ogrinc announced that they would be leaving the club, as the burden of doing voluntary work for the club on the side was too great. Both justified the exit, besides private reasons, with the fact that, despite a successful creditors' meeting, there would be no improvement in the near future in terms of the financial situation. At the end of the year, coach Karsten Hutwelker also ended his work for Bonner SC. His successor was the former coach of the U19 team, Tomek Kaczmarek, who also coached the club's first team in the national league in the 2011/12 season. In the 2010/11 season he was promoted to the A-Juniors Bundesliga with the club's U19s in the western season. In the 2011/12 season, after the bankruptcy proceedings were concluded, the Bonner SC played with its first senior team in the Landesliga Mittelrhein (7th division), with its second senior team in the Bonn district league B (10th division) and with his A and B youth teams in the Bundesliga (1st division). The A-Juniors (U19) were trained from January to early March 2012 by the former national soccer player Jürgen Kohler . After only a few weeks he gave up the position of head coach in charge of the A-Juniors (U19). His previous assistants Alexander Halfen and Kourosch Hosseini are continuing this work. Kohler justified this step with heavy professional demands as a company representative and TV co-commentator. The first team in the national league was trained in 2012 by Deniz Bakir , who returned from SG Bad Breisig to Bonner SC. At the end of the season, fourth place was achieved in the regional league, in the following season 2012/13 the championship of the regional league season 1.

After a brief engagement by Idris Dogan (6 months) and Dalibor Karnay (12 months) as trainers, Daniel Zillken took over this position in July 2014. After the promotion to the fifth class Middle Rhine League, the BSC reached the autumn championship in the second season 2014/15 and finally the second place in the table. On the 28th matchday of the 2015/16 season, the club secured promotion to the fourth-class Regionalliga West . In the 2017/18 season , the club took part in the DFB Cup for the first time in 40 years, but failed in the first main round with a 2-6 defeat at Bundesliga club Hannover 96 . The goal scored by central defender Nico Perrey with a hoe to make it 2: 3 in the meantime was voted Goal of the Month for August 2017.

Head coach Daniel Zillken resigned on November 10, 2018 after losing to newly promoted 1. FC Kaan-Marienborn. He was in office longer than any other coach before him. After Zillken's resignation, Florian Mager was temporarily appointed as head coach. On January 7, 2019, Markus Zschiesche was introduced as the new head coach. After the 2018/19 season, which Bonner SC ended as the 14th and first non-relegated team, the club announced that Markus Zschiesche and his assistant coach would leave the BSC again. On June 3, 2019, Thorsten Nehrbauer was introduced as the new head coach.

Venue of the Bonner SC, the Sportpark Nord

The Sportpark Nord , opened in 1970, is a multi-purpose stadium with athletics facilities and a covered main grandstand; it holds 10,164 spectators. Until 1970, the home games of the Bonner SC were played in the stadium in Gronau . This was demolished in order to expand the then government district and to build the 29-story high-rise building. In the run-up to the 2006 World Cup , the Bonn team also played in the Pennenfeld and Sportpark Süd (Bad Godesberg) stadium, as the lawn of the Sportpark Nord was to be spared for the Japanese national soccer team's training camp in Bonn. In 2011 the stadium was equipped with floodlights and a video display board.


In the 1999/00 season the Bonner SC signed 15 Cuban national players, in April 1999 there was a friendly match against the Cuban national soccer team . The coup was also unsuccessful due to difficulties regarding eligibility to play. The BSC was relegated at the end of the season.

On May 7, 2006, the friendly game against the German record champions FC Bayern Munich , which Bonner SC won 1-0, attracted over 12,000 spectators. In the run-up to the 2005/06 season, Bonner SC played a game against FC Bayern that went 4-2 to the guests from the Isar .

Other teams

After its dissolution in 2002/2003, the second team was re-established for the 2008/09 season, as the DFB rules at that time stipulated that clubs from the regional league must have a second senior team. After starting in the district league D rose to the "second" in the first two years under player-coach Dirk Meesters. Even after the bankruptcy, they initially continued to play in the district league B and held the class for a few years under coach Martin Lichius, who was inherited by Imed Jouini in the second half of 2013/14. For the new season Sascha Ochsendorf was coach, but Imed Jouini took over his position again for the second half of the season. This coaching change could not prevent the 2014/15 relegation to the district league C. After a 6th place in the next season, Christian Schmidt-Preuß took over the fate of the "second" on October 1, 2016.

The A-Youth and the B-Youth both play in the Mittelrhein Association. Since 2015, the association has had a futsal department with two senior teams, the Bonn Futsal Lions . The first team was relegated from the first-class Futsalliga West in 2018 . However, since the second team made the promotion, the Bonn Futsal Lions remained first class. A year later , the Bonn team had to relegate again as the penultimate.

Women's soccer

As early as 1957, a general meeting of Tura Bonn decided to set up a women's football department. Since women's football was still outlawed by the DFB at that time, the sporting value was very low until the beginning of the 1970s and mostly degenerated into pure show business through the marketing of dodgy entrepreneurs. This changed when the DFB surprisingly officially introduced women's football in 1971 by releasing games at the regional association level.

The Bonner SC built a competitive women's team in the same year, which should be looked after by the former Bonn player Willi Krahe . After the DFB had decided to introduce a German women's soccer championship in 1973 by means of a Bundestag resolution, the BSC women entered this championship in 1974 as representatives of the FV Mittelrhein (it was now called the German women's soccer championship) . The team survived the preliminary round with three wins in three games and then lost in the semifinals to the eventual champions TuS Wörrstadt with 1: 3 - the subsequent game for third place against SV Bubach / Calmesweiler was also lost 4: 7 on penalties.

Also in 1975 the BSC took part in the German championship round as the winner of its regional association and won all the games in the preliminary round. In the semi-final against TuS Wörrstadt, the team successfully took revenge, clearly got the upper hand 4-0 and finally faced FC Bayern Munich in the final. In front of around 2500 spectators in the Bad Godesberg Pennenfeld Stadium, the Bonn favorites were already behind after three minutes, after the interim equalization in the 26th minute of the game, they had to accept the renewed deficit only 60 seconds later and go into the break with this score (at that time there was a Half time in German women's football only from 35 minutes). Shortly after the start of the second half, Beverly Ranger - the tricky Jamaican top player - managed to equalize to 2: 2 with a header, and the BSC then played out its technical superiority. Two more goals from Charlotte Nüsser were the result and with the 4-2 final result, the BSC women's selection secured the German championship in 1975 .

In the following year 1976, the women's team of the BSC met the Munich women in the preliminary round after two wins against TuS Niederkirchen and the players from the Bavarian capital were able to reciprocate after a 1: 1 in the first leg with a 3: 2 second leg win on their part - in later it was even enough to win the German championship. The BSC team fell apart after that. With Beverly Ranger, Erika Neuenfeldt and Anne Haarbach-Trabant , key top performers switched to SSG 09 Bergisch Gladbach and won another German championship there in 1977; Haarbach-Trabant then played in the first eight international matches of the German women's national team , which was established in 1982, and even led the team in seven games as team captain on the field.

The BSC was no longer of great importance in women's football and after the team's 10th anniversary in 1981, which was celebrated with an invitation tournament, the department disappeared more and more into oblivion.
