The soccer club 08 Homburg-Saar is a German soccer club in Homburg in Saarland . He became known nationwide through his membership in the Bundesliga in the 1980s. He has been playing in the Regionalliga Südwest since the 2018/19 season . The most famous former players include Werner Kohlmeyer , member of the German national team , which became world champion in 1954 , and Miroslav Klose , 2014 world champion .
FC 08 Homburg was founded on August 1, 1908 as the Homburg 1908 football club in the Hohenburg Inn. Because Homburg was part of Bavaria at the time , the club's colors were initially blue and white . In the second half of 1910 she joined the Association of South German Football Associations . On October 6, 1912, the first league game in the club's history (FC Homburg 08 - FC Viktoria 1906 Kaiserslautern 3: 2) took place; on February 13, 1913, the entry in the club register as the football club Homburg, Pfalz e. V. made.
On November 9, 1932, the 1931 Homburg-Saar athletic sports club joined the FV Homburg as a division. In the summer of 1936 took place in the wake of the DC circuit , the merger of the three major associations Homburger in two stages. On July 25, 1936, the members of the two football clubs FV Homburg and Sportclub Union voted almost unanimously for the merger of the two clubs. On August 27, 1936, the soccer players merged with the gymnastics club 1878/1910 Homburg / Saar to form the Verein für Leibesübungen e. V. Homburg . VfL Homburg was dissolved by the Allied Control Council Act No. 2 of October 10, 1945.
The footballers played their first friendly game after the Second World War on January 27, 1946 at TSV Dudweiler under the name of Sportverein Homburg . They were not allowed to use their previous club name because of the ordinance on sports associations of October 6, 1945. The Homburg sports club was initially purely a football club. Due to the French regulations, all permitted sports were only allowed to be played in an omnisport club. On January 26, 1949 the statutes of the sports club Homburg took place. After the regulations were relaxed, the various divisions left SV Homburg in the first half of the 1950s.
On July 23, 1958, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the club became a football club. V. Homburg renamed. On July 9, 1966, the name was changed to FC 08 Homburg-Saar e. V. At the general meeting on December 20, 1968, the club name was unintentionally changed to FC Homburg-Saar e. V. changed. The addition 08 was forgotten in the articles of association submitted. The change went unnoticed for several years. On December 16, 1976 the mistake was corrected. The club received its name, which is still valid today, Fußball-Club 08 Homburg-Saar e. V. again.

The first venue was the oval in the interior of the cycling track below the III in 1908 . Palatinate sanatorium and nursing home . In 1909 the sports field was built on the Schlossberg . For 750 marks the club acquired an area of 8650 m² and built a soccer field with hard work and later a roofed grandstand with 216 seats. After the Second World War, the club moved to the Waldstadion , inaugurated in 1937, and the club's own sports field on the Schlossberg was transferred to the city of Homburg in 1968.
In 1986, the FCH rose to the Bundesliga for the first time . In the first season the relegation was barely avoided in the relegation against FC St. Pauli , after the second season the FCH was relegated as the penultimate. The immediate resurgence was then followed by relegation, so that the 1989/90 season was the last season in the Bundesliga for the time being.
The club was a founding member of the 2nd Bundesliga South and regularly took top places there. The successes were linked to the person of the chairman Udo Geitlinger , who partially financed the association with his private assets.
Condom manufacturer as sponsor
For the 1987/88 season, President Manfred Ommer had won the condom manufacturer London as the main sponsor (contract amount : DM 200,000). The DFB was outraged and threatened to deduct points, so that the homeburger had to cover the sponsor lettering on the shirt with black bars for the time being. The 13th Chamber of the Regional Court of Frankfurt am Main finally found that the condom advertising on the jerseys did not violate custom or morality, from then on the players played uncensored.
1995 to 2018
In 1995 the FCH said goodbye to professional football until further notice. As 17th in the 2nd Bundesliga, the club was relegated to the Regionalliga West / Südwest. In the 1995/96 season, the FCH caused another sensation in the DFB Cup. After victories against FC St. Pauli, SV Sandhausen and TSV 1860 Munich , the team failed in the quarter-finals in the sold-out Waldstadion 3: 4 after extra time against the eventual title holder 1. FC Kaiserslautern .
After the re-promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga was narrowly missed twice, the FCH signed a cooperation agreement in 1998 with the neighboring club and rival 1. FC Saarbrücken , according to which the best players had to be handed over from Homburg to Saarbrücken. Due to financial irregularities and after bankruptcy, the FCH was forcibly transferred to the Oberliga Südwest after the 1998/99 season . Since 1999, the FCH has played continuously in the first division, which was only fifth from the 2008/09 season , and it was not until 2010 that it was promoted to the Regionalliga West , from which it was turned away and promoted again, so that the team returned from the 2012/13 season played in the regional league. In the 2016/17 season, the team did not get beyond 15th place in the regional league, which was synonymous with relegation to the major league. In the 2017/18 season , the team was first placed in the Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz / Saar and was promoted to the Regionalliga Südwest. With the support of the sponsor Dr. Theiss Naturwaren is planning to move up to the 3rd division by 2020 .
The second team of the FCH plays in the 6th division, the Saarland League. The women play in the association league in cooperation with SV Beeden. The youth department takes part with 12 teams in ongoing matches (A-youth, 2x B-youth, B-juniors, 2x C-youth, 2x D-youth, 2 x E-youth, F-youth and G-youth).
Between 1970 and 1995 the club reached the quarter-finals three times.
The greatest successes were achieved in the 1970s and early 1980s. In the 1975/76 season, the FCH made it to the quarter-finals, in which, in the sold-out Waldstadion, they lost 2-1 to Hamburger SV . In the 1977/78 season, the FCH met the then World Cup winner FC Bayern Munich on October 15, 1977 . With 3-1, FC Homburg defeated Bayern, who had traveled with prominent players such as Sepp Maier , Gerd Müller , Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeneß . In 1979/80 the FCH reached the quarter-finals again, but lost again at home to 1. FC Köln (1: 4).
In the 1991/92 season, FC Homburg was allowed to travel to Munich in the second main round and defeated Bayern 4-2 after extra time. Until March 2, 2011, this was Bayern's last home defeat in the DFB Cup. In 1992/93, the FCH only lost on penalties in the round of 16 against 1. FC Nürnberg .
FC Homburg caused a stir again in the 1995/96 season. As relegated to the Regionalliga , the FCH lost the quarter-finals against 1. FC Kaiserslautern with 3: 4 after extra time.
FC Homburg is a constant in the Saarland Cup every season and is regularly one of the favorites. After winning the final in 1983, 2001 and 2006, they won the final against Borussia Neunkirchen 2-1 in the 2007/08 season and qualified for the first main round of the 2008/09 DFB Cup . FC Homburg won their fifth title in 2014 after defeating SV Elversberg 2-0 in the final. In 2016 Homburg met Elversberg in the final for the third time in a row. In Dillingen they prevailed 1-0 and won their sixth cup.
The first chairman of FC 08 Homburg is the Homburg tax advisor and auditor Herbert Eder. Further members of the board are Rafael Kowollik as second chairman and the entrepreneur Franz-Holger Woitowitz as treasurer. Kowollik is also the managing director of the association. The board of directors is the Homburg lawyer and first member of the Saarpfalz district , Dieter Knicker.
