The sports community Eintracht eV 1902 Bad Kreuznach (short: Eintracht Bad Kreuznach , often also Eintracht Kreuznach ) is a football club from the Rhineland-Palatinate city ​​of Bad Kreuznach .


The early history of Eintracht is determined by a number of mergers, the last of which on August 19, 1932, became today's association.

family tree

The oldest proven predecessor club of today's Eintracht is FC Kreuznach 02 , which was founded on June 18, 1902. In 1907 the FC 02 merged with the SC 1906 Kreuznach to form 1. FC 02 Kreuznach , which is occupied from 1919 with interruptions in the Hesse district league.

The local competition of the FC was SC Nahetal Kreuznach , founded in 1907 , which in 1909 initially merged with FC Preußen Kreuznach to form SC Viktoria Kreuznach and after the affiliations of the Kreuznach clubs Britannia 08 , Hermannia 08 (both 1909), FC Germania 07 (1910) in 1911 united with FC Sportlust Kreuznach to form Kreuznacher FV 07 . The soccer sports club 07 emerged on August 18, 1919 from the merger between the Kreuznach soccer club 07 and the sports club 08. The FSV was first recorded in the Hessen District League in 1921.

On August 19, 1932, 1. FC 02 and FSV 07 merged to form SG Eintracht Kreuznach , which was later renamed SG Eintracht 02 Bad Kreuznach .

Athletic career

In national football, Eintracht appeared for the first time in 1938, when it failed , as in 1939, in the promotion round to the Gauliga Mittelrhein . After the third championship in the Mittelrhein regional league, the Kreuznachers profited in 1941 from the annexation of Luxembourg and the resulting splitting of the Mittelrhein sports area into the Cologne-Aachen and Moselland sports areas. Despite the second place in the promotion round, the club qualified for the Gauliga Moselland, immediately became champions of the group east, but failed in the final games for the Gaume championship against the champions of the western seasons, the FV Stadt Dudelange (originally CS le Stade Dudelange). In the first leg (0: 3), Kreuznach had to do without a number of important players. Before the Gau Moselland ceased playing due to the war in 1944, Eintracht came second twice.

After the war, the Eintracht initially came in second class, before they made it to the league in 1950 . In 1952 the Kreuznacher descended, in 1954 up again. Until they were relegated again in the last league season 1962/63, the team almost always ended up in the lower half of the table.

From 1963, the Kreuznachers were long absent from higher-class southwest football. In 1967 they even got relegated from the amateur league, to which they did not return until 1971, this time with great success: In the first two years, Eintracht was each champion of the amateur league, in the second attempt they rose to the Regionalliga Südwest in 1973 , which, however, was one year was later abolished due to the introduction of the 2nd Bundesliga . Kreuznach was seventh, but still had to return to the amateur league. There the team was again champion and rose in 1975 with four wins in the promotion round in the 2nd Bundesliga. After a good start, the Kreuznacher lost 15 of 17 consecutive games from November 1975, so that they had to leave professional football after a year.

In the remaining two amateur league years, Eintracht was twice third with more than 120 goals this season. In the Amateur Oberliga Südwest, founded in 1978, they could not keep up with the newly added top clubs from the Saarland and Rhineland Association, gradually fell further and further down the table and finally rose in 1988 from the amateur Oberliga, at times down to the district league Nahe. Only in 2000 succeeded in returning to the now only fourth-class Oberliga Südwest.

In the past few years, the Bad Kreuznach hotelier Gojko Lončar made Eintracht one of the financially strongest clubs in Southwest German amateur football as club president, but as a non-specialist he occasionally made very unfortunate personnel decisions. In the meantime Lončar gave the presidency to Dr. Fred Weber left, but he guaranteed financial support until the end of the 2006/07 season . In the 2006/07 season they just secured relegation. For the 2007/08 season, the Eintracht legend Thomas "TJ" Jung was introduced as the new team boss. Together with Peter Weiß, who had the necessary licenses, he succeeded Karl-Heinz Halter.

At the beginning of 2008 financial problems came to light at Eintracht. The bankruptcy could only be averted because several (regular) players and coach Peter Weiß were allowed to leave the club during the winter break. The squad of the first team was largely filled with youth players. In addition, team boss Jung announced his return to the football field.

As expected, you had to accept relegation to the sixth class association league for the coming season in the 2007/08 season . Even if you could annoy some opponents, the performance was not enough to ensure relegation. Thomas Jung then left the association, as did President Freb Weber and Vice President Gerold Mohr. Patrick Krick took over responsibility as player-coach. In the new league, too, the sporty run continued: Patrick Krick resigned from his position as player-coach after only three game days (three defeats). With him four other regular employees left the club. The new coach, who only has an inexperienced and poorly decimated squad, was Gerd Menne .

In the same season (2008/09) there was further restructuring at Eintracht, after the club's supervisory board had decided to create an external trio with the corresponding ones in Bert Haag (president), Werner Gink (sports director) and Stefan Seidel (trainer) Equip skills. The three former officials of Spvgg. Ingelheim (Haag, Seidel) and SV Alemannia Waldalgesheim (Gink) had previously emphasized several times that they wanted to join Eintracht in 2009/10. The new management team signed seven new players for the remainder of the 2008/09 season. Even in the association league, the competition turned out to be too strong, so that Eintracht only reached 16th and last place in the table with only three wins this season and 105 goals conceded in 30 games. Although relegated to the national league in terms of sport, Eintracht was also allowed to remain in the association league in the 2009/10 season, as two clubs waived their place in this division.

For the 2009/10 season, Eintracht again signed some supposed top performers, but after six defeats in the first seven games, the team found itself again in the table cellar, so that coach Stefan Seidel left Eintracht. Sports director Werner Gink also gave up his post just a few weeks later, after he had signed the ex-player Tino Häuser as Seidel's successor on the coaching bench. Only President Bert Haag retained unity.

Tino Häuser initially seemed to be able to get the team on track and achieved three wins by the turn of the year 2009/10, but after four bankruptcies at the beginning of 2010, he too was dismissed on March 21, 2010. As an interim coach, Eintracht legend Jürgen Wilhelm , who had experienced the club's only second division season in 1975/76 as a player , then stood on the line. Even he could not prevent the descent of the residents of the Nahe city. As again bottom of the league table, the Kreuznacher rose in the seventh-class Landesliga West.

For the 2010/11 season, Lulzim Krasniqi took over as coach at Eintracht. Bert Haag was unanimously removed from the board of directors as president in preparation for the season in the regional league.

On October 18, 2010, the association decided at its supervisory board meeting that it would file for bankruptcy. The game operations in the regional league should be continued until the end of the season. In this context, Krasniqi resigned his coaching position, among other things because his players had been given financial promises before the season, which were ultimately not kept. For this reason, the said players refused to play some games under the new coach Ercan Ürün, who had meanwhile moved up from the squad of the second team, which is why the team, which had been in relegation again, suffered some major defeats. It was not until the end of the year that Eintracht was able to present a reasonably competitive team again, which was due to the return of the formerly striking actors. At the end of the 2010/11 season, the team occupied the 15th and penultimate place in the table and would therefore have been relegated to the eight-class district league Nahe even if the relegation had not already been determined due to the bankruptcy.

On the last day of the 2011/12 season, Eintracht secured the championship of the Nahe district league and thus rose directly back to the regional league. In the following year, however, the immediate relegation to the district league followed. There the club took 3rd place in the final table in the 2013/14 season. In the 2014/15 season, Eintracht secured the championship on the penultimate match day and thus rose again to the state league.

In the 2015/16 season Eintracht Bad Kreuznach was able to reach second place in the final table in the state league, which entitles them to participate in the promotion games to the Association League Southwest. Against the runner-up of the Landesliga Ost-Staffel, the second team of VfR Wormatia Worms , they won the third and decisive game in Guntersblum and played for the first time since 2010 in the sixth class association league. After the 23rd match day of the 2016/17 season of the Association's league, Thomas Wunderlich surprisingly resigned from his position as coach of the first team, so that his coaching colleague Patrick Krick held this position alone for the rest of the season. In the final table of the Association League Southwest, Eintracht took 11th place this season.

Until 1965, Eintracht Bad Kreuznach played in the Eintracht Heidenmauer sports field . The attendance record in this stadium comes from the first match day of the first Kreuznach Oberliga season. Depending on the source, 20,000, 23,000 or 25,000 spectators saw the 2-4 defeat against 1. FC Kaiserslautern on August 27, 1950 .

Eintracht later moved to the Friedrich Moebus Stadium, which opened on June 11, 1965 . The completely uncovered multi-purpose stadium was initially approved for 15,000, later for 20,000 spectators, today for 10,000 spectators.

In 2005 the city of Bad Kreuznach replaced the old wooden benches in the stands with modern seat shells on the occasion of the upcoming World Cup , in order to be able to apply - ultimately unsuccessfully - as a training location for a World Cup participant.
