The FC Carl Zeiss Jena is a football club from Jena . After several name changes, the club was re-established on January 20, 1966 as FC Carl Zeiss Jena. The three-time GDR champion has around 4,000 members (as of June 2017). The club colors are blue, yellow and white. The greatest success in the club's history so far was the entry into the final of the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1981.
1903 to 1945
On May 13th 1903 the soccer club of the company Carl Zeiss Jena was founded. Initially, it only included employees from the Carl Zeiss company . On July 1, 1904, membership was made available to the general public.
The club was dominant in the Gau championship in East Thuringia . Between 1909 and 1933 he won the East Thuringia championship twelve times. After the Gauliga was founded in mid- 1933, 1. SV Jena was four times (1935, 1936, 1940 and 1941) champions of the Gauliga Mitte. During this time he had several national players in his ranks. The first selection player from Jena was Willy Krauss , who won 6-2 against Switzerland with the German national team on March 26, 1911 .
1945 to 1991
After the Second World War , all clubs in the Soviet occupation zone were banned. In 1946 the SG Ernst-Abbe Jena was founded. Several name changes followed. In 1949 the team played as BSG Carl Zeiss Jena against Horch Zwickau for a place in the new East Zone League , later the GDR Oberliga. Both teams were defeated in the cup semi-finals and had to play third place, as this qualified for participation in the East Zone League. After two draws, Zwickau prevailed in the second replay.
In 1958 Georg Buschner became head coach in the club, which has been called SC Motor Jena since 1954 . On October 7, 1960, the club defeated SC Empor Rostock in the cup final and became the FDGB cup winner for the first time . This was the first time that the club qualified for a European Cup. The European premiere ended on October 16, 1961 in Linz against the Welsh club Swansea Town 2-2. Jena was only eliminated in the semifinals against Atlético Madrid . In 1963 Buschner's team became GDR champions - a success that he repeated in 1968 and 1970.
On January 20, 1966, FC Carl Zeiss Jena was finally re-established in the Jena Volkshaus . In the 1970s, Jena provided numerous players for the GDR national team , including Peter Ducke , Konrad Weise , Lothar Kurbjuweit and Hans-Ulrich Grapenthin .
In 1970 Georg Buschner was appointed coach of the national team, initially for a year in parallel with his coaching function at FC Carl Zeiss, before Hans Meyer replaced him in the club in 1971 . During the GDR era, the upper division was a center of excellence; Here the connection to international top-class sport should be promoted through targeted funding.
The greatest success in the club's history so far was reaching the final of the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1981, which was lost 2-1 to Dinamo Tbilisi in Düsseldorf . On the way there, the Jenaer had switched off AS Roma , FC Valencia , Newport County and Benfica Lisbon .
After 1981 the great successes of the two previous decades did not materialize. The highlights were third places in the championship and participation in the final in the 1988 Cup. In the European Cup, the Jenaers were eliminated in the second round at the latest. On November 9, 1988, FC Carl Zeiss played for the last time at European level (3-1 defeat at Sampdoria Genoa ). In total, FC Carl Zeiss played 87 European Cup games, 50 of them in the UEFA Cup . The statistics show 39 wins, 17 draws and 31 defeats.
In August 1990 the FC Carl Zeiss Jena e. V. entered in the register of associations two months before the GDR joined the Federal Republic of Germany . In the last GDR / NOFV Oberliga season 1990/91 , the club qualified with 6th place for the 2nd Bundesliga . In the Eternal Table of the GDR Oberliga , FC Carl Zeiss Jena takes the top spot.
1991 to 2010
In the first second division season in 1991/92 Carl Zeiss Jena and coach Klaus Schlappner finished fifth after 32 games. In the 1992/93 and 1993/94 DFB Cups , Bayer 04 Leverkusen (0-2) and Rot-Weiss Essen (5-6 after penalties) were eliminated in the quarter-finals. In 1994 Hans Meyer was unable to prevent his relegation to the Regionalliga Nordost during his second engagement as Jena head coach . His successor Eberhard Vogel led the club back into the second division in the following season. In 1998 FC Carl Zeiss Jena reached the DFB Cup quarter-finals again (1: 2 against MSV Duisburg ), but rose again from the second division. 2001 followed the descent into the season south of the Oberliga Nordost . In 2005, in the fourth year of the amateur league, FC Carl Zeiss won the season for the first time with Heiko Weber as coach. With two victories in the relegation games against the second team from the North, MSV Neuruppin , the promotion to the Regionalliga Nord was finally made perfect. In the following 2005/06 season, FC Carl Zeiss Jena won promotion to the second division , together with Rot-Weiss Essen.
For almost the entire 2006/07 second division season , FC Carl Zeiss Jena was in a relegation battle. Because of the precarious situation, head coach Heiko Weber and assistant coach Marco Kampf were on leave on April 11, 2007. The new head coach was Frank Neubarth , under whom the club remained undefeated until the end of the season. On the last day of the match, FC Carl Zeiss Jena secured relegation in the second division with a 2-1 win at FC Augsburg . On September 17, 2007, the club separated from Neubarth after the Zeiss-Elf had slipped to the penultimate place in the table after the fifth match day. Three days later, the former Bundesliga professional Valdas Ivanauskas was introduced as the new coach, but he was replaced on December 22, 2007 by the former coach of the Jena A-Junior team, Henning Bürger .
At the general meeting in September 2007, it was decided to spin off the first and second teams to FC Carl Zeiss Jena Fußball Spielbetriebs GmbH .
The Russian company Alpha Invest Group Corporation offered up to 25 million euros in 2007 for 49 percent of the association's shares. Behind the company, which among other things wanted to set up its own managing director, stood the oligarch Mikhail Guzeriev , who, according to Novaya Gazeta, was temporarily wanted by the police . The DFL finally rejected the upcoming contract.
While the first team could not avoid relegation from the second Bundesliga in the 2007/08 season and was already a participant in the new third division after the 32nd matchday , it made all the more talk in the DFB Cup competition . One after the other, defending champions 1. FC Nürnberg (in the second round after a penalty shoot-out), Arminia Bielefeld (round of 16) and in the quarter-finals in Stuttgart the German champions VfB Stuttgart , again after a penalty shoot-out. This was the first time the club made it into a DFB Cup semi-final, but lost 3-0 to Borussia Dortmund - with 80,708 spectators, the best-attended cup game to date.
On May 11, 2008, supervisory board chairman Michael Meier resigned first, followed a day later by president Rainer Zipfel and treasurer Gerald Glöckner. They drew the consequences from the descent. At a Supervisory Board meeting on May 22, 2008, Peter Schreiber was elected as the new President.
Henning Bürger's time as a coach was short-lived, on September 14, 2008 he was dismissed as the fourth coach within a year and a half. On September 25th, René van Eck took over . Despite plummeting in the league Jena reached after victories over the two second division teams 1. FC Kaiserslautern and FSV Frankfurt in the DFB Cup competition 2008/09 the knockout stages. In this one was eliminated against FC Schalke 04 . Due to the lack of success in the 3rd division and acute risk of relegation, the club announced the dismissal of René van Eck and sports director Carsten Linke on the evening of March 23, 2009. The coach was Marc Fascher , who received a contract until June 30, 2009. With a 2: 2 at SV Sandhausen , Jena secured relegation on the last matchday.
Although the goal of relegation had been achieved with Marc Fascher, he was dismissed at the end of May and replaced by his predecessor René van Eck, who was still on the club's payroll. Hartmut Beyer was elected President on November 29, 2009. Under van Eck, the 1st team reached 5th place in the 2009/10 season.
2010 until today
For the third season in a row in the third division Jürgen Raab was introduced on June 1, 2010 as head coach and successor to René van Eck, but on October 6, Raab was already on leave. From October 12, 2010 to April 20, 2011, Wolfgang Frank was the head coach of Thuringia. After his dismissal, Heiko Weber took over the coaching post again and achieved relegation.
From May 18, 2011, Rainer Zipfel was again President, as Hartmut Beyer had resigned at the end of the 2010/11 season.
After the club had slipped to the bottom of the table on the 15th matchday of the 3rd football league 2011/12 , Weber was dismissed on October 30, 2011. On November 7th, Petrik Sander took over the coaching business, without success - at the end of the season it was clear for FC Carl-Zeiss Jena to go into fourth class.
On the 4th day of the Regional League season 2013/14 Petrik Sander and his assistant Thomas Hoßmang were given leave of absence because they saw the goal of resumption in danger. After Marco Kampf had acted as interim coach for two games, Andreas Zimmermann was presented as coach on September 9, 2013 , but his contract, which ended at the end of the season, was not extended because he had already signed with Rot-Weiß Oberhausen . On April 14, 2014 Andreas Zimmermann was released from his duties and replaced by Lothar Kurbjuweit . The FCC finished the fourth division season in third place, after second place in the previous year.
President Zipfel announced in February that he would not be available for any further term. At the beginning of April 2014, Lutz Lindemann was appointed as the new President.
On May 16, 2014 the club signed the Belgian Patrick van Kets from Standard Liège as head coach for the Regionalliga season 2014/15 . The former FCC professional Karsten Hutwelker should be his assistant. However, Van Kets canceled about two weeks after his commitment, canceled his contract and in his place Kurbjuweit continued to lead the team's training. From January 7, 2015, Jena was trained by Volkan Uluç, who was signed on December 19, 2014, but clearly missed the goal of promotion.
On April 30, 2015, the Saalfeld metal band Heaven Shall Burn announced that they would from now on act as a shirt sponsor for an indefinite period of time. With a special permit, the club also wore black rock 'n' roll jerseys in the home game against 1. FC Magdeburg . On July 22, 2015, FC Carl Zeiss extended the contract with Heaven Shall Burn as a sponsor of the home jerseys, and Sea Shepherd was introduced as the new sponsor of the away jerseys.
The 7th place in the table in the final ranking of the fourth-class Regionalliga Nordost 2015/16 was a year later the worst league placement of the first men's team since the club's new entry in 1990, and Carl Zeiss and coach Uluç parted ways.
At the beginning of the 2016/17 regional league season , the club promoted Mark Zimmermann , the interim coach from 2008 and 2010, to head coach. He had previously coached the U19s and immediately led the first team to the championship of the Regionalliga, which was confirmed on April 28, 2017 - three game days before the end - after a 1-1 draw against RB Leipzig II . In the games for promotion to the 3rd league , Jena won the first leg at FC Viktoria Köln 3-2, lost the second leg 0-1 and rose to the 3rd league due to the away goals rule.
In June 2017, it was decided to cooperate with the FF USV Jena , especially in the field of young talent. On January 18, 2019, the club entered the German download charts at number 37 with the fan song "Wir woll'n Jena siegen see" around the technical director of the club Sebastian Treml & musicians of the FGS music school . On January 19, 2019, the metalcore band from Saalfeld / Saale , Heaven Shall Burn, was presented again as a mini-sponsor of the association during the general meeting .
Between the 1st and the 6th match day of the third division 2019/20 season , the FCC only suffered defeats and thus equalized the previous negative league record, after eight game days, with only one point on the points account, a negative record of all previous third division seasons and because the team was still without a win after ten match days, Lukas Kwasniok , who has been in office since December 2018, was replaced on an interim basis by Christian Fröhlich . On the 12th matchday, Rico Schmitt was introduced as the new head coach. Schmitt was fired on February 5, 2020 and René Klingbeil took over the post of head coach on an interim basis. Due to the lack of a coaching license, Klingbeil became the "team boss" on February 27, 2020, Kenny Verhoene was appointed head coach and Tobias Werner signed as the new sports director at FC Carl Zeiss towards the end of the season. The third relegation of the club to fourth class, i.e. H. In the regional soccer league , they could no longer prevent, but Verhoene's successor Dirk Kunert led the first team to the sovereign win of the Thuringian State Cup in August 2020, so that the successes of the lower class years from 2010 to 2020 are a total of six state cup wins.

A chronological overview of the presidents / chairmen of the association since it was founded.
In the years of GDR football , the reserve team of the FCC was repeatedly represented in the second-class league - most recently in the season 1987/88 . In the all-time table of this division , the Jena second representation ranks 35th. In 13 seasons, 366 league games were completed. In the course of structural changes in East German football, the league reserve was also replaced by a team in the junior league in a few years of play , or the 3rd Jena team, which temporarily played in the district league , was renamed the 2nd team. In 1988/89 the team was in the Gera district league for the last time before the turnaround (5th place) and was then withdrawn in favor of a team in the reissued junior league .
In 2005/06 the reserve of the regional league-wide FC Carl Zeiss Jena became champions of the Thuringia League for the second time . The first title of this kind had already been given in 1993/94 for the amateur team of the then second division club. In this competition (at that time the fourth highest division below the amateur league ) the team was integrated in 1991/92 after the last independent season of East German football and the associated dissolution of the junior league .
Since the 2006/07 season , the 2nd FCC team has played continuously in the southern season of the Oberliga Nordost - from 2008/09 onwards , always in fifth class . There she was already represented from 1994/95 to 1998/99 in the then fourth-class league .
In addition to the two promotions in 1994 and 2006, winning the TFV Cup in 1993 was one of the second team's greatest successes after the fall of the Wall. In the DFB-Pokal 1993/94 she played in the second main round against Bayern Munich and lost 2-0 in the Ernst-Abbe-Sportfeld. Almost 23 years later, the German record champions returned to the Jenaer Paradies to win against the first team of FC Carl Zeiss Jena 5-0 in the German club cup .
The venue of FC Carl Zeiss is the Ernst-Abbe-Sportfeld , which holds 10,445 spectators . The main stand of the stadium has 4,010 covered seats, 2,530 uncovered seats on the back straight and 6,450 standing places in both curves. The stadium had a floodlight system with four hollow steel masts. The floodlights had to be dismantled after the 2013 summer flood shortly before the start of the 2013/14 regional league season because they were in disrepair. The stadium, which was inaugurated on August 24, 1924 with the friendly game against VfL Halle 1896 (1: 1), is located directly on the Saale south of Jena city center. The attendance record is 27,500, set up in the European Cup semi-finals on March 28, 1962 against Atlético Madrid . The post-turn record was set on August 19, 2016 in the first round of the DFB Cup against FC Bayern Munich with 19,000 spectators. Without additional grandstands set up for special occasions and after adding an additional buffer block between guest and home fans, the stadium currently has a capacity of 12,630 spectators.
The FF USV Jena announced its third team from the game in May 2017 and the team joined the FC Carl Zeiss Jena. Since this takeover, the club has also had a women's soccer team; subject to certain conditions, it was allowed to participate in the Thuringia Women's Association League in its first season. In her premiere season she reached 5th place in the Thuringian League. For the second season, coach Mario Hollmann was replaced as head coach by Matthias Zocher on July 30, 2018. Zocher left the FCC after one season and the long-time 1. FFC Saalfeld coach Frank Schwalenberg was signed as his successor . They ended up in second place. The following 2019/20 season was interrupted and finally canceled by the Covid 19 pandemic. Here you were on the 1st place.
For the 2020/21 season, Carl Zeiss Jena took over all women's teams from FF USV. Carl Zeiss became the new third, the two women's teams from the USV play higher and took over the right to play in the respective league.
