The first men's football team played in the 2013/14 season for the first time since 1985 again in the Bundesliga , but missed on the final day the chance to avoid relegation.

1895 to 1904 - The foundation of the association
The club was founded on December 15, 1895 in the apartment of the Braunschweig engineer Carl Schaper as the football and cricket club Eintracht Braunschweig . The founding members were mostly young street footballers who pursued their passion on Leonhardplatz in south-east Braunschweig. In the following two years the first friendly matches against other clubs took place.
The FuCC Eintracht 1895 Braunschweig is a founding member of the DFB just like the two other city clubs at that time, FC Brunsviga 1896 Braunschweig and FC Germania Braunschweig , all of which were represented by Mr Stansch at the DFB's founding meeting on January 28, 1900. However, the first championship games in Braunschweig did not take place until years later, after the football association for the Duchy of Braunschweig was founded on May 1, 1904.
At the turn of the century, the club was significantly influenced by the Braunschweig athlete and later sports official Johannes Runge .
1904 to 1933 - The early years of the club
With the founding of the football federation for the Duchy of Braunschweig , the football division of the FuCC Eintracht 1895 Braunschweig started the organized game operation. In 1905, the association championship succeeded in the first year of the event, which meant that participation in the German championship finals in 1904/05 was achieved for the first time . After two victorious games against Hannover SV 96 and FC Viktoria 96 Magdeburg , the team missed the semi-finals by losing to Berlin TuFC Union 92 .
On October 8, 1905, a dedicated sports field was inaugurated on Helmstedter Strasse. The square had a small wooden grandstand and held up to 3000 spectators. It was located on the site of today's main cemetery . The team's first international game ended on December 25, 1905 against Slavia Prague with a 3-8 score . On October 12, 1906, the club was renamed FC Eintracht von 1895 e. V .
After the merger of various North German associations in April 1905 to form the North German Football Association , after previously losing two finals in 1906 and 1907, the North German Football Championship was won for the first time in 1908, which now entitles participation in the 1907/08 championship finals . Here, however, the team was eliminated in the first game against Duisburg SpV with 0: 1.
In the following years three more finals were made in the North German soccer championship (1909, 1911 and 1912), but Eintracht lost all of them. Only in 1913 succeeded in winning the championship again. However, the North German Association final against SC Victoria Hamburg took place only two weeks after the final of the German championship due to time shifts, so that Eintracht was denied participation in the German championship finals in 1912/13 . In the 1913/14 season, Eintracht was the only club from the Duchy of Braunschweig to take part in the newly founded North German Association League and ended up in fifth place in the table.
With the outbreak of the First World War , there were significant cuts in gaming operations in the following years. The 1914/15 season was canceled entirely, after which only a Braunschweig district championship was played to a very limited extent between 1915 and 1918. In 1916 and 1918, the North German championship was no longer held by clubs, but by city teams. In the last championship played with club teams before the end of the war, Eintracht failed in 1917 in the semifinals at Marine SC Wilhelmshaven .
On February 10, 1920, the club was renamed again, this time as SV Eintracht Braunschweig . The number of members had risen to over 1,000, and a new stadium was built as a venue. The inauguration of the new Eintracht Stadium on Hamburger Strasse took place on June 17, 1923 with a game against 1. FC Nürnberg in front of 15,000 spectators.
In the period between 1920 and 1928 they played in the district league Südkreis . There they won the southern district championship in 1924 and 1925, and in 1924 they were again runner-up in northern Germany. In the following years the sporting success ebbed, so in 1929 there was the threat of relegation from the top local league for the first time, but this could be averted. In the league now called Oberliga Süd , Eintracht was only in 6th place among nine participating teams at the end of the 1933 season.
1933 to 1947 - Gauliga and a new beginning
From 1933, Eintracht continued to play in the highest performance class. In keeping with the zeitgeist, this was now named Gauliga . After previous places in the middle of the league in 1937, relegation could only be secured on the last game day. On October 31, 1937, a game against the reigning German champions FC Schalke 04 took place in the overcrowded stadium with 24,000 spectators . The round of 16 of the Tschammer Cup, the predecessor of today's DFB Cup, lost the Eintracht with 0: 1. The decision was made by a hand penalty for the eventual cup winner shortly before the extension ended.
In 1943, the club reached the German championship finals in 1942/43 as champions of the southern Hanover-Braunschweig sports class . After a clear victory in the first round, they lost 4-0 to the eventual winner Dresdner SC in the round of 16 .
Also in the following season 1943/44 succeeded as Gaumeister the entry into the German championship finals . This time the club failed in the first round against Wilhelmshaven 05 . The last game of the "old" Eintracht before the end of the war took place on February 4, 1945 at Germania Wolfenbüttel and ended with the remarkable result of 6:10. After that, the game had to be stopped due to the war. After the end of the war, the game continued under the only major club authorized by the British occupying power, TSV Braunschweig . There they fought from February 18, 1946 for the district championshipin the Oberliga Niedersachsen-Süd, which could be won, and then for the North German Championship . However, this competition was banned and canceled by the occupying power in the quarter-finals. In the 1946/47 season they reached the finals of the zone championship, but failed in the quarter-finals at Rot-Weiß Oberhausen . In the following season 1947/48 the Hamburger SV stopped the title ambitions in the semi-finals of the finals.
1947 to 1963 - Oberliga Nord
From the 1947/48 season there was again a uniform game operation in Germany. In 1947, TSV Braunschweig was one of the founding members of the new North Football League .
On February 13, 1949, TSV goalkeeper Gustav Fähland crashed unhappy with a Bremen striker in an away game and died seven days later of kidney bleeding.
The renaming to the old name Eintracht Braunschweig took place on April 1, 1949.
After three successful years in the Oberliga Nord, Eintracht slipped off athletically. In the 1951/52 season , for the first time in the club's history, the gang had to go into the second division, namely by exclusion from the league because (from the perspective of the NFV ) proven bribery and coercion in the - sportingly successful - relegation battle. In the following year, however, succeeded with the new coach Edmund Conen, the immediate rise from the amateur league Lower Saxony .
By reaching second place in the league in 1958 it was enough to participate in the final round of the German soccer championship 1957/58 . There you failed in the preliminary round. In the following years, Eintracht was in the top third of the league. After the decision of the DFB to introduce a single-track, nationwide league from the 1963/64 season, it was enough for third place in the Oberliga Nord.
1963 to 1985 - Bundesliga
Due to sporting and economic factors, Eintracht Braunschweig received a place in the new Bundesliga on May 6, 1963 and is thus one of the 16 founding members. In the first game - an away game at TSV 1860 Munich - there was a 1-1 draw. Klaus Gerwien scored the first Bundesliga goal for Eintracht to equalize in the 74th minute. The first home game was a 1-0 win against Preußen Münster with a goal from Jürgen Moll .
The coach was Helmuth Johannsen from 1963 to 1970 . Of all the founding members who remained in the Bundesliga for a long time, Eintracht Braunschweig was the longest without a dismissal, namely until the 1975/76 season ; From 1963 to the first relegation in 1974, there were 322 Bundesliga games in a row - a record that still exists today. Eintracht's first dismissal was received by the then oldest player in the Bundesliga, 35-year-old Wolfgang Grzyb , on August 30, 1975 in a 3-2 victory over Werder Bremen after he had insulted referee Manfred Scheffner.
German champion 1967
In 1967, Eintracht Braunschweig became German football champions. After six encounters, Eintracht were leaders for the first time with 9: 3 points. During the season u. a. Bayern defeated 5-2. On the 17th matchday they celebrated the autumn championship, level on points with Hamburger SV. In the final table , the team had two points ahead of TSV 1860 Munich. The best-known players in the championship team were Lothar Ulsaß , Horst Wolter , Jürgen Moll , Joachim Bäse and Klaus Gerwien. The club won many games 1-0 or 2-0 this season, so their defensive performance was considered good. Overall, the team conceded only 27 goals and set a Bundesliga record that was only beaten in 1988 by Werder Bremen under Otto Rehhagel . The runner-up in 1860 Munich conceded 47 goals for comparison. The team was considered well-rehearsed, ten players came to more than 30 missions each. The championship was decided with a 0-0 on matchday 33 in the away game at Rot-Weiss Essen . Viktor Siuda was among the Eintracht fans therewho had walked the 328 kilometers from Braunschweig to Essen and had arrived at the stadium 20 minutes before the game. Siuda was also one of the club's athletes. He had won the German championship in long distance walking (20 and 50 km) four times with the Eintracht team in the years 1954-1958. After a 4-1 win in the last game of the season against 1. FC Nürnberg in front of 37,000 spectators in the Eintracht Stadium, the championship celebration lasted several days.
The championship eleven from 1967:
- Goal: Hans Jäcker (2/0); Horst Wolter (32/0)
- Defense: Joachim Bäse (33/0); Wolfgang Brase (3/0); Wolfgang Grzyb (15/2); Peter Kaack (34/0); Wolfgang Matz (5/0); Klaus Meyer (30/0); Jürgen Moll (34/5)
- Midfield: Walter Schmidt (33/0); Hans-Georg Dulz (32/5); Gerd Saborowski (33/8)
- Storm: Klaus Gerwien (21/4); Wolf-Rüdiger Krause (2/0); Erich Maas (33/10); Lothar Ulsaß (32/15)
- Trainer: Helmuth Johannsen
In 1966/67, the players in the championship eleven generally received a basic monthly salary of DM 1200 and bonuses of DM 250 for Bundesliga games they won. As a result, almost all players had regular jobs in addition to professional football. They trained four times a week, on Sundays and Wednesdays Helmut Johannsen gave his players free time - they should take care of their families. Ten players were still there from the squad with which he went into the first Bundesliga season in 1963. In the summer of 1966 the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung hadwrote: “The danger that the Hanseatic League cities will be the next foreign body to repel the staid Braunschweiger cannot be dismissed out of hand. Your departure would be a logical straightening of the geographical and economic boundaries of the Bundesliga ”. The "Bild" mocked Eintracht as "typical housewives team, good and solid". In the European Cup of National Champions in 1967/68 , Eintracht made it to the quarter-finals. There, after the games against the Italian champions Juventus Turin (first leg 3: 2, second leg 0: 1 by penalty in the 88th minute), a playoff took place on a neutral pitch in Bern , which was lost 0: 1.
Bundesliga scandal from 1971
Before the season finale on June 5, 1971, the building contractor Rupert Schreiner (sponsor of Arminia Bielefeld ) negotiated a bonus of 40,000 DM with some players from Braunschweiger Eintracht, which would be payable if the BTSV did not play against Rot-Weiß Oberhausen in the last game lose. After the game, which ended 1: 1, Schreiner initially withdrew from his commitments. However , he was provided at the airport by Eintracht player Max Lorenz , who then also received the bonus.
- Lothar Ulsaß was banned from the Bundesliga from August 7, 1971 to January 1, 1973 and received a fine of 2,200 DM. On August 16, 1972, he was given permission to move abroad; he went to the Vienna sports club and Eintracht thus lost their captain and most successful Bundesliga scorer.
- Horst Wolter, Wolfgang Grzyb, Peter Kaack, Franz Merkhoffer, Bernd Gersdorff, Klaus Gerwien, Rainer Skrotzki , Eberhard Haun , Jaro Deppe, Dietmar Erler, Friedhelm Haebermann, Joachim Bäse and Michael Polywka each received a fine of 4,400 DM.
- Burkhardt Öller was banned from February 9, 1973 to May 8, 1973 and sentenced to an additional payment of DM 2,000.
The 1970s and 1980s
After the first relegation from the Bundesliga, he was immediately promoted again in 1974. By 1977 the team that was then trained by Branko Zebec was again relatively successful. She established herself in the top group. The most noticeable players were goalkeeper Bernd Franke and the Yugoslav winger Danilo Popivoda . In 1974/75 Eintracht kept in contact with the top for a long time as a newcomer, but finished in 9th place. In the following years the club reached places 5 ( 1975/76 ) and 3 ( 1976/77 ), most recently with only one point behind champions Borussia Mönchengladbach . In the 1977/78 UEFA Cupswitched off Braunschweig Dynamo Kiev .
After 1977 there were changeful years with promotions and relegations, which went hand in hand with economic difficulties, also because the renovation of the stadium and the new construction of the main stand had caused high debts. Despite the commitment of the national players Paul Breitner (1977) and Ronnie Worm (1979), Eintracht lost contact with the top and rose for the second time in 1980. In 1981 the company immediately rose again. In the four other Bundesliga years, the best placement was 9th place in the 1983/84 season.
The player Lutz Eigendorf (formerly BFC Dynamo ), who fled the GDR in 1979, was involved in a car accident shortly after moving from 1. FC Kaiserslautern to Eintracht on March 5, 1983, of which he died shortly afterwards. Shortly after the accident, there were suspicions of an assassination attempt. After the Stasi archives were opened, it turned out that Eigendorf and those around him had been spied on by more than 50 MfS employees . In the WDR documentary Tod dem Verräter (broadcast on ARDon March 22, 2000) the suspicion was confirmed that the accident was an assassination attempted by the Stasi. At the beginning of 2011, however, the responsible public prosecutor announced that there was no objective evidence of third-party fault in the Eigendorf accident.
1984 to 1993 - From the 2nd Bundesliga to the Oberliga and back
In the 1984/85 season, the club rose again to the 2nd Bundesligafrom. After the first second division season, which ended with a twelfth place in the table, the relegation to third division followed in 1986/87, the only relegation of a club in German professional football with a positive goal difference (52:47). In the meantime, Karl-Heinz Briam, the then Labor Director at Volkswagen, was striving for the office of the club's board of directors. However, Günther Mast, the board member of the main sponsor at the time, Jägermeister, tried to prevent this undertaking. Briam then took over the management of VfL Wolfsburg and, together with the Volkswagen Group, laid the foundation for further sporting development in the neighboring city. In 1988 there was an immediate resurgence. After that, Eintracht was able to stay in the 2nd Bundesliga until 1993, before relegating again.
1993 to 2007 - Between the regional league and the 2nd Bundesliga
This was followed by nine years in the Oberliga Nord and the Regionalliga Nord . Five times the second place and twice the third place was achieved, only in 2002 succeeded the rise again with a 2-1 against Wattenscheid 09. On the 34th matchday Thomas Piorunek scored the winning goal in the 90th minute after Hamit Altıntop Wattenscheid had previously taken the lead would have. In 2003 the club rose again. The relegation was sealed by a 1: 4 home defeat on the last match day against Jürgen Klopp'strained FSV Mainz 05. In 2003/2004 Braunschweig was able to advance to the round of 16 of the DFB Cup. In the first round Braunschweig was able to defeat Bundesliga club 1. FC Kaiserslautern 4-1. While Miroslav Klose , Tim Wiese and Halil Altıntop ran up for Kaiserslautern, Torsten Lieberknecht committed on the Braunschweig sideas a midfielder his competitive debut. In the next round, Braunschweig was able to beat Hanover, who were considered arch rivals, 2-0. A year later, he was promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga. Up until the last match day, Braunschweig, VfL Osnabrück, SC Paderborn and VfB Lübeck were close together in the table. It was only on the last day of the match that Braunschweig was able to make clear the promotion with a 3-2 win against the Bielefeld amateurs who had already been relegated. Captain Jürgen Rische scored the winning goal with a penalty kick. The 2005/06 season ended with 12th place. In the DFB Cup, Braunschweig defeated Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in a game that was interrupted for 15 minutes due to a power failure.
In the 2006/07 season, despite various measures, the relegation to the regional league could not be prevented; During the winter break, eleven new players were signed for 1.1 million euros, none of which, however, proved to be powerful. Five different coaches led the team throughout the season, including Michael Krüger , Willi Reimann and Đurađ Vasić. The latter was dismissed as a coach after five defeats in five games and 2:13 goals after exactly 30 days after he had denied the team's suitability for the second division after his first game as a coach. In the end, however, the club finished last in the table with a total of only four wins and twenty-three points. In addition, there was a major change in terms of personnel, as most of the players brought in in winter only had contracts for League 2.
2007 to 2017 - from the regional league to the Bundesliga for one year
Benno Möhlmann was hired as a savior for the new season. He was kicked out of Fürth for a lot of money and given all the freedom with the aim of achieving direct resurgence. The start of the 2007/08 regional league season, the additional qualification round for the new 3rd leaguewas, but failed and the team only collected three points in their first eight games. Finally, Möhlmann resigned three game days before the end of the season. The post of head coach was taken over by the then A youth coach and former Eintracht player Torsten Lieberknecht, who described the situation as follows: "I came to the office, it was about existence - and suddenly all eyes were on me in the executive committee." Lieberknecht finally got 7 points from the remaining three games and after Eintracht had been on a relegation zone the entire season, on the last day of the game they managed to jump to 10th place with a victory over the second team from Borussia Dortmund, which means qualification for the 3rd team. League meant.
On September 17, 2007, 80 percent of the 312 voting members in the extraordinary meeting voted for the spin-off of the professional football department into a corporation. On December 3, 2007, 309 members unanimously elected the 44-year-old economist Sebastian Ebel as the successor to Gerhard Glogowski . Lower Saxony's former Prime Minister decided not to run again after seven and a half years as President. In 2011 the new presidium was unanimously re-elected.
Under the new sporting director Marc Arnold, who also started more or less as a young professional, the club's policy was realigned. Eintracht Braunschweig now relied on personnel continuity and a consolidation and austerity course. In the course of this, the club increasingly began to sign talented young players from lower leagues, such as the 22-year-old Mirko Boland. After a season with mediocre placement, they attacked again and only just missed promotion. Six game days before the end of the 2010/11 season , Eintracht had already been promoted to the second division after a 1-0 away win at SpVgg Unterhaching on the 32nd game day. Karim Bellarabi scored the decisive goalwho moved to Bundesliga club Bayer 04 Leverkusen after the season. On the 36th matchday, she made the championship perfect with a 2-1 home win against VfB Stuttgart II . She set some records in the 3rd division during the season . In addition, for the second time in the club's history they won the NFV Cup , in which Kickers Emden was defeated 2-1 in the final. From then on, Braunschweig strengthened itself primarily with talented young players from lower-class teams such as Marcel Correia , who was signed free of charge by the second team of 1. FC Kaiserslautern and quickly developed into a mainstay of the team. The team made it eighthin the first year after their return sovereign relegation in the second division.
The team started the 2012/13 season extremely successfully. With a 1-0 win against 1. FC Köln, Eintracht laid the foundation for a successful first half of the season, in which Braunschweig remained unbeaten on the first 14 matchdays. In addition, the championship lead was taken over on the second match day and not given up for the entire first half of the season. On the 16th match day, Eintracht secured the early autumn championship of the second division ahead of their pursuers Hertha BSC . It was only on the 23rd match day that Eintracht, which had previously been at the top of the table for 21 matchdays without interruption, was dethroned by Hertha from Berlin after a home defeat against 1860 Munich. The pillars of the team included captain Dennis Kruppkethe future top scorer Domi Kumbela , the future Bosnian international Ermin Bičakčić and Omar Elabdellaoui, who was signed in the winter, and veteran Deniz Dogan . On April 26, 2013, Eintracht made the promotion prematurely perfect on the 31st matchday with a 1-0 away win at FC Ingolstadt 04 . Damir Vrančić secured a return to the Bundesliga after 28 years of second and third division with a free kick goal in stoppage time.
At the beginning of the Bundesliga season, Lieberknecht mainly relied on the promotion heroes and only strengthened himself selectively , for example with the later national player and former Braunschweig player Karim Bellarabi . On the 8th matchday of the 2013/14 season , the Braunschweig team achieved their first win in the upper house since their promotion with a 2-0 derby against VfL Wolfsburg . Over the course of the season, Eintracht occupied last place in the table for most of the time, but with a 3-0 derby win on matchday 29 against Hannover 96In front of her own backdrop, she once again raised hopes of relegation. Until the last game day, she kept the chance of at least reaching the relegation place. This was finally missed by a 1: 3 away defeat at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim . Although the sporting goals were missed by relegation, the club was able to completely reduce its remaining debts by quintupling sales and foregoing expensive newcomers.
In the following season, the direct promotion seemed possible until shortly before the end of the season. However, hopes had to be buried at the latest after the defeats on matchday 32 in Nuremberg (1: 3) and a week later against their direct rivals Karlsruhe (0: 2). In the DFB-Pokal Braunschweig fought their way to the round of 16, but had to admit defeat to Bayern with 0-2. The season ended in 6th place and some of the former heroes of the promotion like goalkeeper Marjan Petković or Dennis Kruppke ended their professional careers. They continued to rely consistently on youth players who were introduced to the first team via the U23 and A-youth teams. Gerrit Holtmannmoved to the new season for FSV Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga. In the DFB Cup, the team made it to the last sixteen, where Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart only lost 3-2 in extra time. With only 44 goals scored, Braunschweig had to be content with 8th place at the end of the season. In the 2016/17 season , VfB Stuttgart and arch rival Hannover 96 played two long-time Bundesliga clubs in the second division. A four-way battle quickly developed at the top of the table with Stuttgart, Hanover and Union Berlinand Eintracht, who played an excellent first half of the season; she was always on a direct promotion spot, was leader of the table on 14 match days and was autumn champion. At the end of the season, however, Braunschweig only reached third place - partly due to a 6-0 defeat as runner-up on the penultimate matchday in the away game against Arminia Bielefeld - and failed in the relegation with two 0-1 defeats at local rivals VfL Wolfsburg .
Since 2017 - present
In the following 2017/18 season, the Braunschweiger fell into the middle. For a long time, Eintracht had nothing to do with the relegation zone, but did not get beyond a draw in many games. The competition for relegation in the second division increased noticeably. Towards the end of the season, the table penultimate and the eighth were a full five points apart. In this situation, the Braunschweiger only slipped to relegation position 16 on the penultimate matchday, for the first time in the season. On the last day of the match they lost 6-2 in the away game against Holstein Kiel , fell to penultimate place for the first time in the season and thus unexpectedly relegated to the third division.
Two days after relegation, the club split from head coach Torsten Lieberknecht . Almost exactly ten years earlier, he had also led the club into the then new third division on the last day of the match. On May 30, 2018, the club announced that it had hired the Danish Henrik Pedersen as head coach. The contract with him was valid until 2020 and included an option to extend for one year.
In June 2018, Eintracht and their co-relegated 1. FC Kaiserslautern received the promise of a solidarity donation of 600,000 euros. Each club in the 2018/19 second division season , regardless of the DFL, paid 66,666 euros into one pot to make it easier for the two former second division clubs to start over in the third division.
A good half of the squad had been replaced during the summer break, former top performers such as Ken Reichel or Jasmin Fejzić left the club, many contracts were not extended or were not valid for the third division. The free fall continued at the beginning of the 2018/19 season , with the club in last place without a win after six matchdays. Meanwhile, the upheaval in management continued - sports director Marc Arnold was released on August 29, 2018 after ten years in office. Henrik Pedersen was on leave on October 9, 2018 and was replaced by André Schubertreplaced. The first half of the season ended as the bottom of the table, and Eintracht had been relegated since the 3rd match day. During the winter break, consequences were drawn from the lack of success with regard to the squad. In addition to seven other newcomers, goalkeeper Fejzić returned after the two regular keepers Engelhardt and Kruse could not convince, several players were also released and then left Eintracht. As a result, the performances stabilized, but the relegation could only be ensured on the last match day with a 1: 1 against the direct competitor Energie Cottbus - here the one goal better goal difference decided in favor of Eintracht.
One day before the start of training for the 2019/2020 season , the change from coach André Schubert to Holstein Kiel became known. The previous assistant coach Christian Flüthmann took over the position as his successor . In addition, Braunschweig's promotion coach Peter Vollmann returned to Hamburger Strasse as sports director in 2002 . Flüthman was released between the 15th and 16th matchday, at which time the team was in fifth place in the table and was only three points behind a direct promotion place. He was followed by Marco Antwerp , who had already made third division experience. On July 1, 2020, the club won in their own stadium against theSV Waldhof Mannheim with 3: 2 (2: 1) and thus secured promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga on the penultimate match day of the 2019/2020 season , because the lead over FC Ingolstadt, which is on the relegation site, grew to four points.
Jersey advertising from 1973
Contrary to popular belief, it was not Eintracht Braunschweig who was the first team to appear with jersey advertising , but Wormatia Worms in the 1967/68 season. However, the DFB banned advertising. Eintracht Braunschweig took up the idea of jersey advertising again on March 24, 1973 when the team sponsored by Jägermeister was playing in the Bundesliga with jersey advertising. However, a trick was used to circumvent the ban: Eintracht quickly turned the Jägermeister company logo into the club's coat of arms and was thus able to advertise “legally”.
This was also Günter Mast's first big appearance . The Wolfenbüttel herbal liqueur manufacturer accompanied Eintracht from 1972 to 1987 as a sponsor and between 1983 and 1986 as president. His long-term public dispute with the DFB - he originally wanted to rename the team to "Jägermeister Braunschweig" - made his products effective advertising headlines throughout West Germany.
Club colors and club crest
The Eintracht club coat of arms went through several changes in the course of its history. Mostly, however, it consisted of a red lion based on the Braunschweig city arms on a silver triangular shield within a round, blue-yellow coat of arms. After the club's coat of arms had been replaced by a slightly modified version of the Jägermeister company logo in 1972, the club received a completely redesigned, diamond-shaped logo after the end of its sponsor's commitment in 1986. It showed a red lion on a white background, which was surrounded by a blue-yellow diamond. However, there were increasing efforts among the supporters of the association to return to the traditional round coat of arms.
After 55 percent of the members questioned voted for the reintroduction of the traditional club coat of arms in a member survey at the end of 2011, the BTSV finally presented a new club coat of arms based on the old traditional coat of arms in March 2012, which finally replaced the diamond at the beginning of the 2012/13 season. In the 2016/17 season, the first team of Eintracht appeared on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the championship in 1967 with a special anniversary logo.
A study by the German Institute for Sports Marketing published in early 2013 found that Eintracht Braunschweig is one of the few clubs in German football that is perceived as a brand.

Then Đurađ Vasić only led the team for a month until Willi Reimann was appointed as coach in mid-November. In April 2007, the meanwhile fifth trainer Dietmar Demuth could not prevent the descent of Eintracht.
In the 2007/08 season of the Regionalliga Nord, Benno Möhlmann was again coach of Eintracht, who already occupied this post from 1995 to 1997.

Second team (U23)
The U23 team, which competed in the fifth-class football league of Lower Saxony in the 2018/19 season, was trained by Deniz Dogan . The home games were mostly played on a side square of the Eintracht Stadium, the B-Platz. The course is the only extension that has four steps on the back straight and has an estimated capacity of 1500 seats. In risk games like against I. SC Göttingen 05 , the games were played in the Eintracht Stadium.
The adjacent Rheingoldstrasse gave the square the popular (self-deprecating) name “Rheingoldarena”. This can be traced back to the local fan base of around fifty loyal Eintracht fans, who also invented the “gate crocodile” - after each goal of the team, the fans symbolize a “snapping” crocodile with a clapping movement .
After the 2018/19 season , in which the U23s played in the five-tier upper league Lower Saxony, the team was initially withdrawn from play, but re-registered in the regional league for the following season as an amateur team that had been outsourced from the youth performance center .
Third and fourth team
The third men's team of Eintracht plays in the 1st district class Braunschweig in the 2018/19 season, the fourth team no longer takes part in regular games.
Eintracht Braunschweig operates an NLZ (young talent center), which was recently awarded 3 out of three possible stars by an external commission. The NLZ is located on the Kennel sports grounds in Braunschweig and has several grass and artificial turf pitches (some of which are heated).
The A-youth from Eintracht Braunschweig played in the top division, the U-19 Bundesliga North / Northeast , until the end of the 2017/18 season . Since her relegation, she has been playing in the A-Junior Regionalliga Nord. The A-youth is trained by Sascha Eickel.
The B-Youth, trained by Benjamin Duda, played in the top division, the U-17 Bundesliga North / Northeast , until the end of the 2017/18 season . She was also relegated alongside the A-Juniors and has since played in the regional league. The team is trained by Sebastian Gunkel.
The first women's team of Eintracht has been playing in the fourth-class Oberliga Niedersachsen-Ost since the 2018/19 season. With a 6-1 final victory over Osnabrücker SC , the Braunschweig women won the Lower Saxony Cup in 2019 and qualified for the DFB Cup . There the team lost 1: 3 to Arminia Bielefeld in the first round . The team is trained by former Eintracht professional Ronald Worm and his assistant coach Kristina Gluth.
Fan friendships & rivalries
There has been a friendship with fans of 1. FC Magdeburg since the 1990s . Braunschweig and Magdeburg have been twin cities since 1987 . After the Elbe floods in the summer of 2013 , the fans organized a friendly game between the two clubs to benefit the flood victims. There are also friendly connections with the FC Basel and SV Waldhof Mannheim fans .
Since the establishment of the Bundesliga in 1963, Hannover 96 has been the arch rival of the BTSV .
Due to the geographical proximity, journalists often recognize a rivalry with VfL Wolfsburg . Also, when both teams meet, it is usually referred to as a derby. This point of view is also denied by the Braunschweig fans, as they see the games against Hannover 96 as the only “true” Lower Saxony derby.
The ice hockey department was founded in 1981 when the ice hockey team of the Braunschweig figure skating club transferred. The venue was the Braunschweig ice rink . After a few years in the leagues of the Lower Saxony Ice Sports Association (NEV), Eintracht rose to the Regionalliga Nord in 1992 , which after a league reform in 1994 became only the third-class 2nd division. In 1997 Braunschweig moved to the first division north after the dissolution of this league - in the 1997/98 season the second and from 1998 the third highest divisionin German ice hockey. After two seasons in which you were penultimate and last, you relegated and even retired to the highest league of the NEV. In 2000, the Eintracht ice hockey department went into business for itself; from the 2000/01 season she played as Eintracht Braunschweig Eissport e. V. again in the regional league until the club was finally dissolved in 2003. His successor was the EC Eislöwen Braunschweig . The ice rink was closed in 2008 because of rotten wood in the roof structure and later demolished. The "Wasserwelt" pool area is now located there on Hamburger Straße / Am Schützenplatz.
Eintracht Braunschweig also became known nationwide in other sports. In the 1970s, for example, the women's hockey team was among the leading teams in Germany and won several championship titles. In athletics , Eintracht is currently one of the clubs that have merged to form the LG Braunschweig with the substantial participation of MTV Braunschweig . The LG Braunschweig is currently one of Germany's best athletics clubs, it has reached number 1 several times in the athletics Bundesliga. In particular, well - known long-distance runners such as Embaye Hedrit and Luminita Zaituc (formerly also Carsten Eich) start for the LG. In Braunschweig they compete in the Braunschweig Night Run every June. In the Olympic years 2000 and 2004, the German athletics championships with Olympic qualification took place in Braunschweig in the Eintracht Stadium. The stadium is one of the few remaining traditional football arenas with a running track and athletics facilities.
After basketball had been played within the club's athletics department since 1952 , the Eintracht basketball department was officially founded in 1956. In the 50s and 60s, the 1st men's team of Eintracht also played for a few years in the upper league ( first-class until the introduction of the basketball Bundesliga in 1966). In 1970 they entered into a syndicate with the Academic Sports Club Braunschweig (from 1971: USC Braunschweig ), but this was dissolved again in 1973.
In 1989, under the name Braunschweiger Basketball Gemeinschaft Eintracht / USC, a game community of the two clubs was re-established. Most recently, the BBG was particularly successful in women's basketball, where they were promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga in 2013 via a wildcard . Since the 2013/14 season, however, the team has been playing there again as Eintracht Braunschweig, as the USC has withdrawn from the second division team for financial reasons. In the new league, the Eintracht women qualified for the play-offs as third in the northern group. There they reached the final, in which they were defeated by the AVIDES Hurricanes from Rotenburg. The syndicate of the two clubs was dissolved on July 1, 2014.
For its services to sport in Lower Saxony (24 German championship titles in the team up to 1988), the club was included in the Lower Saxony Sports Honor Gallery in the Lower Saxony Institute for Sports History.
