The re-establishment after the Second World War took place on December 28, 1946 under the name VfL Ingolstadt-Ringsee , via Erste-SV Ingolstadt-Ringsee (from June 1, 1951) the name was finally changed at the end of 1953 to Eisenbahner-Sportverein Ingolstadt-Ringsee e.

The ESV belonged to 1962–1966, 1968–1972 and 1979–1981 of the second highest division (2nd division South, Regionalliga South, 2nd Bundesliga South), 1979/80 there were local derbies with the MTV in the 2nd Bundesliga South . Following the Bayern league championship and promotion in 1979, the German amateur championship was celebrated after the finals against Hertha Zehlendorf . After relegation from the Bayern League in 1986, the club sank into lower-class leagues.

Founding history

In 2003, the situation of ESV Ingolstadt worsened to such an extent that the then President approached Peter Jackwerth and pointed out that without financial support, bankruptcy was inevitable. Jackwerth not only became a shirt sponsor, but also president of the football division. Thereupon MTV Ingolstadt reported to him that he also had financial problems and that he would have existential problems if the lower-class ESV were upgraded. After discussions with Lord Mayor Alfred Lehmann and Heribert Fastenmeier from the Ingolstadt Clinic , the decision was made to merge the football departments of ESV and MTV and to found a new club.

In the very first season of the Bayern League, promotion to the regional league was targeted; In the end, however, they were only in second place behind SpVgg Bayreuth, which delayed the promotion by a year. After they had been able to hold the regional league in 2006/07, the goal for FC Ingolstadt 04 in the second regional league season 2007/08 was to qualify for the new 3rd division , and if possible even advance to the 2nd Bundesliga. During the winter break, coach Jürgen Press publicly confirmed for the first time that he was aiming for the second division, but the FCI officials did not trust him to do so and put Press on leave on January 1st, 2008. Three days later, Thorsten Fink was introduced as the new coach. Under him, Ingolstadt rose to the second division with a 2-0 victory over SpVgg Unterhaching on May 31, 2008.

On April 5, the club had guaranteed him a job until the end of the season and supervisory board member Andreas Schleef said in an interview on April 17 that a change of coach no longer made sense at this point. Michael Wiesinger , who had previously trained the U23s, stepped in as interim head coach for a few days . The new head coach was Horst Köppel on April 26th , under whom the series of games without a win continued. On the 32nd game day, relegation was sealed by a 0-1 home defeat against FC St. Pauli .

The start of the 2010/11 season, however, clearly failed. After eleven games, FC Ingolstadt finished last in the table with just four points. After a 1: 2 defeat against Energie Cottbus on matchday 11, coach Wiesinger and assistant coach Uwe Wolf were dismissed. Benno Möhlmann was introduced as his successor on November 7, 2010 , and Sven Kmetsch was his new assistant coach . Almost exactly a year later, the club separated from Möhlmann and his assistant coach. At that time, FC Ingolstadt was in 18th place in the table with just nine points from 14 games. Tomas Oral was presented as the new trainer on November 10th . Together with him, Thomas Linke was introduced as the new sports director.

After an overall mixed season 2012/13 , which ended in 13th place, Oral was released on May 28, 2013. Marco Kurz , who had previously worked for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and who had led 1. FC Kaiserslautern into the Bundesliga in 2010 , was hired as his successor for the 2013/14 season . But already after nine match days and the seventh defeat - Ingolstadt was bottom of the table - the club parted ways with Kurz on September 30th. On October 4, 2013, he signed the Austrian Ralph Hasenhüttl as the new head coach , who led the Ingolstadt team to 10th place. The second division extended their contract with Hasenhüttl until 2016. On October 19, 2014, the team won 1-0 at FSV Frankfurt .

FSV Mainz 05 and on August 29, 2015 at FC Augsburg , FC Ingolstadt had 04 became the first Bundesliga promoter to win his first three away games. After some surprising successes at home against Schalke and Borussia Mönchengladbach , the Schanzer were in eleventh place in the end. During the summer break, Hasenhüttl moved to the new league competitor RB Leipzig for a record sum . Markus Kauczinski was introduced as his successor . The start of the 2016/17 season did not go according to the expectations of those responsible and so Kauczinski was dismissed after ten games and only two points. On November 12th, Maik Walpurgis was hired as a new coach. Despite a better performance in the second half of the season, relegation on matchday 33 after a draw at SC Freiburg could not be prevented.

The 2017/18 season began with a 0-1 home defeat against Union Berlin . After two more defeats against Sandhausen and Regensburg , Walpurgis was released. His successor was former professional soccer player Stefan Leitl, who had already been with FC Ingolstadt 04 for the last six years of his playing career. After the Schanzer had worked their way up to 4th place in the meantime and came close to the top three with just a few points, they slipped back into midfield of the very close table at the end of the season. As a result, the final relegation was only secured by a 2-0 win at Eintracht from Braunschweig on the 33rd match day. In the DFB-Pokal , after victories against TSV 1860 Munich and SpVgg Greuther Fürth , they reached the round of 16 for the second time in the club's history, but were eliminated from the third soccer league against outsider SC Paderborn .

The following year the Schanzer were eliminated again in the cup against Paderborn, but already in the first round. With only five points from six league games, the team lagged far behind expectations. After a clear 6-0 defeat at VfL Bochum and a 0-1 home against FC St. Pauli , coach Leitl was on leave on September 23, 2018. Alexander Nouri was introduced as his successor . Despite the change of coach, no sporting turnaround could be initiated and so they parted ways with sports director Angelo Vier on October 23 . The first point with Nouri could only be achieved on matchday 11 at home against MSV Duisburg . On November 26th, after a 2-0 defeat against Dynamo in Dresden , Nouri was also dismissed - who was in last place in the table. After the A-youth coach Roberto Pätzold had looked after the team in a game, Jens Keller became the new head coach before the 16th matchday . Even Keller could not lead the team out of the table cellar and was replaced by Tomas Oral after the 27th match day, when they were on the bottom of the table . Under Oral, the team was able to achieve five wins from the last seven league games and thus move up to 16th place in the table, which entitled to participate in the relegation against SV Wehen Wiesbaden . The first leg in Wiesbaden was won 2-1, in the second leg the FCI lost 3-2 in front of their home crowd and relegated to the third division due to the away goals rule .

For the 2019/20 season there was a major upheaval in the team and the contracts of long-standing players such as Marvin Matip or Almog Cohen were not extended or terminated prematurely. With the Luxembourger Jeff Saibene and his assistant Carsten Rump a coaching duo was brought to the Schanzern , which already led the training together with Arminia Bielefeld . At the start of the season they got ten points in four games and are at the top of the table. After slipping to eighth place in the table in the meantime, they could work their way back to second place behind relegated MSV Duisburg by the winter break . In the second half of the season, which was temporarily interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and then played to the end to the exclusion of spectators , mam slipped back into the middle of the table and brought Tomas Oral to his third term on the Danube. Under him could Schanzer report back in the promotion race and reached by a 2: 0 victory on the final day at the 1860 Munich the relegation to promotion to the second Bundesliga against 1. FC Nuremberg , where, after a 0: 2 defeat in Nürnberg in the first leg and a 3-1 win at home in the second leg (Ingolstadt led 3-0 into the sixth minute of stoppage time before Nürnberg scored another goal) narrowly missed promotion due to the away goals rule .

Structure and organs

The majority of the shares in FC Ingolstadt 04 Fußball GmbH are owned by the club with 80.06%. The rest was held by Peter Jackwerth until 2013 and then sold to quattro GmbH, a subsidiary of the Audi Group. At the general meeting of the association on November 3, 2015, an amendment to the articles of association was passed, according to which a two-thirds majority of the general meeting is now required for the sale of shares in the GmbH .

ESV Stadium (formerly Tuja Stadium)

ESV Stadium Ingolstadt
  • District Sports Facility Southeast, Geisenfelder Strasse 1, 85053 Ingolstadt
  • Capacity: 11,418 seats
  • On November 23, 2007, those responsible at FC Ingolstadt 04 learned that in the event of promotion to the third or second division, a move from the MTV stadium to the ESV stadium would be inevitable. Only there, the DFB announced, would meet the strict requirements that the German Football Association had declared for the new 3rd division. The MTV stadium would be out of the question, if only because of the audience capacity, since 10,000 seats are required for the 3rd division. The aging ESV stadium in the Ringsee district was just a stopover.

Audi Sport Park

Audi Sports Park Ingolstadt
  • The venue for FC Ingolstadt 04 since the 2010/11 season
  • Am Sportpark 1, 85053 Ingolstadt
  • Capacity: 15,200 seats
  • Opening on July 24, 2010
  • A new, fully roofed stadium with the working title “ Audi-Sportpark ” with space for 15,200 spectators (9,200 seats and 6,000 standing places) was completed on the former Bayernoil refinery in the east of Ingolstadt. The city ​​of Ingolstadt had taken on a default guarantee for the construction costs of around 25 million euros, in which the Ingolstadt-based automobile manufacturer and jersey sponsor Audi contributed 5 million euros for the naming rights to the stadium . Via the subsidiary Audi Immobilien Verwaltung GmbH, which has held 100% of the shares in FC Ingolstadt Stadionbetreiber GmbH since 2013, the group owns both the stadium and the club's training grounds.



The local car manufacturer Audi and the IT service provider Prosis from nearby Gaimersheim support FC Ingolstadt as main sponsors alongside the sporting goods manufacturer Puma . Audi is also a shareholder in the gaming company through Audi Sport GmbH and the owner of the Audi Sportpark through Audi Immobilien Verwaltung GmbH . For the use of the sports and office space, however, the club has to pay around 3.5 million euros annually to the stadium operator belonging to the Audi Group. PROSIS GmbH, an IT service provider, has been the club's shirt sponsor since 2019.

Factory club discussion

Because of Audi's commitment to FC Ingolstadt 04, the club is often referred to as a “ factory club ” by supporters of other football clubs or by external media . However, the Schanzer oppose being equated with the professional teams of Bayer 04 Leverkusen , VfL Wolfsburg , TSG 1899 Hoffenheim or RB Leipzig , the majority of which belong to a single investor or group, and point out that only in May 2013 19.94 percent of the shares in FC Ingolstadt 04 Fußball GmbH were sold.

In addition, the club management emphasizes their “Ingolstadt way” of small steps. In the 2014/15 season, for example, “with a second division squad that is not one of the most expensive and has no Bundesliga stars, the club simply showed a fantastic team performance,” says ex-international Christoph Metzelder . The club started the 2015/16 Bundesliga season with the second smallest budget in the league. Critics consider it, however problematic that the Volkswagen group sponsored a total of 16 teams from the first and second Bundesliga (the VW subsidiary Audi is not only at the FC Ingolstadt 04 football GmbH, but also in the FC Bayern Munich AG involved , VfL Wolfsburg-Fußball GmbH is 100% owned by VW) and fear that VW will influence the sporting business.

According to Martin Wagener, Audi's general counsel and member of the club's board, Audi wants to keep FC Ingolstadt 04 “as autonomous as possible”. The main decisions would therefore always lie with the club. Audi also has no influence on the former board members Andreas Schleef and Frank Dreves, who, like him, are also represented on the supervisory board of the Fußball-GmbH. He himself did not come to FC Ingolstadt 04 as a representative of Audi, but because of his “football madness”. He was also not sent to the board by Audi, but was elected by the association's general meeting.
