The SC Rot-Weiß Oberhausen-Rheinland is a sports club in Oberhausen , which was created on December 18, 1904 from the merger of the Emschertaler SV and the Oberhausen gymnastics club . RWO had 1,380 members (as of July 2020) and currently offers the football and endurance team departments.
The endurance team has been offering all endurance athletes a point of contact under the red and white flag since January 1, 2020.
Early years (1904–1945)
The club was founded on December 18, 1904 as Oberhausen Spielverein . Members of the non-registered association Emschertaler SV, founded in 1902, and the Oberhausener TV 1873 were involved . On April 27, 1922, the last club was joined by the entire football department after it had no longer seen a future on TV because of the clean divorce between football and gymnastics. Only a few months later, on January 30, 1923, the game club merged with Styrumer SV 1908 . The latter was founded in 1908 as SV Viktoria Styrum , merged with the Unterstyrumer Ballspielverein to form the Ballspielverein Viktoria 08 Styrum in 1912 and adopted its last name in 1920. The new merger club was called Spielvereinigung Oberhausen-Styrum . Only a few months later, some members left the club and founded the 1. FC Mülheim-Styrum as a spin-off on June 24, 1923 . In June 1933, the club finally took on the current name SC Rot-Weiß Oberhausen .
The Oberhausen were not divided into the newly founded Gauliga Niederrhein as the new top division in 1933 , but they succeeded in promotion in 1934. After two third places in 1936 and 1937, Rot-Weiß was relegated in 1938, but managed to get promoted again immediately and from 1939 belonged again to the Gauliga. After August 1943, they formed together with the Alstader SV Elmar 09 and Viktoria Oberhausen the war Sport Community (KSG) Oberhausen . Under this name they ended the 1943/44 season and then saw the cessation of game operations in the following season.
Post-war period (1945–1963)
In the first post-war season, Rot-Weiß achieved a first major success when it won the best possible title that season, the championship in the Lower Rhine district (see District Championship League (British zone) ). In the final, RWO won 2-0 against VfL Benrath . In the following season 1946/47 the team won the district league right Niederrhein sovereign, which RWO was also qualified for the future Oberliga West . In the Lower Rhine finals, Rot-Weiß successfully defended their title with a 3-1 win against Fortuna Düsseldorf . As a result, RWO was qualified for the final round of the championship in the British zone of occupation . In the semifinals, the team lost to Hamburger SV with 1: 3 and then lost the game for 3rd place against VfR Köln 04 rrh. with 1: 4.
In the new Oberliga West, the red-whites initially played a good role. In both 1947/48 and 1948/49 they finished in fifth place. After an eleventh place in 1949/50 , they finished 13th in 1950/51 because of the poorer goal quotient compared to the Sportfreunde Katernberg . So they had to defend their league place in the promotion round, which did not succeed. From 1951, RWO played in the second-class 2nd League West , from which it was only able to rise again as runner-up in 1957. After RWO had completed the first three seasons after being promoted back to the bottom of the table, he made it to fourth place in the table behind the "big three" 1. FC Köln , Borussia Dortmund and FC Schalke 04 in 1960/61 . Things went even better in 1961/62 with third place just four points behind champions Cologne. RWO missed second place in the table, which would have qualified for participation in the final round of the German championship , by three points behind Schalke 04. With a tenth place in 1962/63 , however, RWO blocked any prospect of inclusion in the 1963/64 season Football Bundesliga .
After founding the Bundesliga (1963-1998)
When the Bundesliga started playing, Rot-Weiß Oberhausen was not part of the game. The club was assigned to the Regionalliga West and spent six seasons there until 1969 under the coach Adi Preißler and President Peter Maaßen the western championship and then promotion to the Bundesliga. There you could hold for four years until the 1972/73 season, the best placement was 14th place in the 1969/70 season. In 1970/71 the club was involved in the Bundesliga scandal , which is why the then coach Günter Brocker was suspended and the Bundesliga top scorer Lothar Kobluhn only received the legendary top scorer 36 years after the end of the season, in spring 2008, from kicker sports magazine .
After relegation in 1973, the immediate resurgence was just missed in the 1973/74 season (2nd place in the Regionalliga West and in the subsequent promotion round). The first season in the newly founded 2. Bundesliga North ended in 1975 for the club with relegation to the third division. The promotion was successful in the 1978/79 season, at the same time RWO reached the quarter-finals in the DFB Cup and was eliminated there with a 1: 2 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt .
When the single-track second league was founded in 1981, the club could not qualify for this and was henceforth third-rate again. In 1983 , however, they were promoted again, and a five-year second division era began, which was abruptly ended by the 1988 revocation of the license. Without an adequate squad, RWO could not hold up in the Oberliga Nordrhein in the 1988/89 season and was "passed through" to the Association League Niederrhein. The following year, the club narrowly escaped relegation - only the goal difference saved the red-whites from falling into the national league. The club recovered only slowly. In 1995 one rose as a league champion in the regional league and in 1998 again in the 2nd Bundesliga .
Cup semi-finals and elevator years (1998–2008)
RWO achieved their greatest cup success in the 1998/99 season when they reached the semi-finals. The “home game” in Gelsenkirchen's Parkstadion against FC Bayern Munich was lost 3-1. Another important cup game in Gelsenkirchen took place in early 2002 when RWO lost 2-0 to the hosts in the quarter-finals in the Schalke arena . In both cup highlights, the team was looked after by coach Aleksandar Ristić , who was brought in as a “savior” by the club, which was in danger of relegation, in the 1998/99 and 2001/02 seasons and helped to secure relegation in both cases.
In the 2003/04 season, RWO was at the top of the 2nd Bundesliga for a long time with Jørn Andersen, who was previously unknown as a coach , but missed promotion to the top German division by two points after a slump in the second half of the season. The 2004/05 season was much worse, Andersen was given early leave and Oberhausen was only 16th under coach Eugen Hach and was relegated to the Regionalliga Nord.
With the new trainer Harry Pleß and a squad that was significantly weaker in view of the low budget, RWO got off to a classic false start. On September 5, 2005, the long-standing board of the association resigned, so that the SC Rot-Weiß had to be led by an emergency board that tried to consolidate its financial and sporting activities. On May 3, 2006, they separated from Pleß, successor was the reserve coach Günter Abel, who had come from Weseler SV during the winter break . Abel, who had previously led the second team to relegation in the association league, could no longer save the first team. With 39 points, Oberhausen finished 17th in the table and was relegated to the Oberliga Nordrhein.
For the 2006/07 season, the former Bundesliga professional and long-time coach of SV Adler Osterfeld , Hans-Günter Bruns , who had previously looked after SSVg Velbert , was signed up. Under his leadership, RWO became autumn champions, did not give up the championship lead and made the promotion to the Regionalliga Nord perfect on the penultimate matchday. On June 29, 2007, the newly elected board of directors appointed a three-person board consisting of Hajo Sommers (chair, marketing and events), Thorsten Binder (stadium, fans, members and tradition) and Jürgen Luginger (sporting director).
At the start of the 2007/08 regional league season, the promoted team from Oberhausen made an impressive return on July 28, 2007 with an unexpected 4-1 away win at Rot-Weiss Essen . With a 3-0 away win at 1. FC Union Berlin on the last day of the season, RWO secured qualification for the 2. Bundesliga and surprisingly managed to "march" back from the Oberliga to the Bundesliga lower house.
Present (since 2008)
Coach Hans-Günter Bruns, who had made a significant contribution to this sporting success, announced a few weeks before the end of the 2007/08 season that he would be handing over his position to the previous sporting director Jürgen Luginger in return for his duties. Oliver Adler , who had been in goal for RWO from 1995 to 2005 and whose last position as an active player was then KSV Hessen Kassel, was signed up as the new assistant coach . With a 1-0 win against the already established promoted SC Freiburg , RWO secured relegation on the penultimate match day of the 2008/09 season; the team finished the season in ninth place.
In the 2009/10 season they reached the second round of the DFB Cup for the first time since 2004 with a 3-0 win against Mülheim neighbors VfB Speldorf in Duisburg's Wedaustadion , although this was the final stop at Bayern Munich. After a series of nine league games without a win, Jürgen Luginger resigned from his coaching position on February 1, 2010. Hans-Günter Bruns took over his task again. In place of Bruns, Frank Kontny became the sporting director until 2017. RWO finished the 2009/10 season in 14th place in the table. Bruns was released from his duties on February 22, 2011 after a sporting downturn in the 2010/11 season and replaced by the former Bundesliga player Theo Schneider . But Schneider could not stop the downward trend of RWO and so the relegation from the 2nd Bundesliga was certain after the last match day. With just seven wins, seven draws and 20 defeats, RWO ended the 2010/11 season in 17th place.
A large part of the squad was replaced for the 2011/12 season. According to the club's management, the club should establish itself in the 3rd division in order to lay the foundation for a return to the 2nd Bundesliga through youth work. After a poor start to the season (nine points in twelve games), Theo Schneider was relieved of his coaching duties on October 4, 2011. Mario Basler was presented as his successor on October 24, 2011 , and his contract was equipped with the option for another season until the end of the season. However, he could not prevent the club from being relegated to the Regionalliga West one match day before the end of the season. After a 3-0 home defeat against the until then winless second representation of 1. FC Köln , Basler resigned on September 14, 2012. His successor was Peter Kunkel , previously the coach of RWO's U23s. In mid-2014 he was followed by the previous coach of FC Carl Zeiss Jena, Andreas Zimmermann . In October 2014, the association sold the office to Oberhausen Gebäudemanagement (OGM) - a municipal subsidiary - and thus generated fresh money for the following season. After four goalless defeats at the beginning of the 2016/17 season , Zimmermann was on leave and replaced on an interim basis by the previous U23 coach Mike Terranova , who also looked after the team in the 2017/2018 regional league season .

Rot-Weiß Oberhausen plays its home games in the Niederrhein Stadium , between the Emscher and the Rhine-Herne Canal. After renovation work, the inauguration took place on May 10, 1998. The stadium has a capacity of 17,165 spectators, of which 4,000 are covered seats and 4,460 are covered standing places.
The home of the RWO fans is traditionally the "Emscherkurve", although a not inconsiderable number of the fans had taken their seats in the STOAG grandstand, where there was a supporter block in blocks C and D from the top division season (2006/07) would have. At the beginning of the 2011/12 season, this was relocated and significantly reduced in size. It is now on the STOAG grandstand in Block A for only 200 spectators. Since then, the seats in blocks C + D have only been sold for top games with a high number of spectators, otherwise the grandstand section is closed.
For guest fans, the "canal curve" opposite the Emscher curve is intended as a standing area and Block D of the evo grandstand as a seating area. The scoreboard received in 1996 - as a gift from TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen to the city of Oberhausen - was installed behind the canal curve. However, due to the fact that spare parts are no longer available, this has been stocked with hanging numbers again for several years. Furthermore, an LED band in front of the evo grandstand is used to display the score.
In the midst of the euphoria about staying up in the 2008/09 season, RWO presented the plans for the renovation of the Niederrhein Stadium. The two grandstands in the curves and a three-story building along the main grandstand should cost around 15 million euros. The cabins, VIP area and office should be located here. After relegation in 2011, the plans for the stadium renovation are on hold for the time being, but the new training ground for the senior and junior teams around the stadium was nevertheless completed. Since 2014 there have been plans for the demolition and rebuilding of the "Emscher curve"; In January 2017, the groundbreaking ceremony for the new "Emschertribüne" took place. After its completion, it was first opened to the public at the last home game of the 2017/18 season on May 13, 2018.
The RWO fans were organized in the interest group of RWO fans (IGF) from 2001. This loose association of fans and fan clubs merged in 2011 in the "Oberhausen Fan Project", which is supported by the club and the CVJM Oberhausen. In addition to the fan project in the city center with various project and common rooms as well as a historical permanent exhibition on the club, there is another contact point for fans in the stadium behind Block 1 (Emscherkurve). There has been an official friendship with fans of SSV Ulm 1846 since the late 1990s . The official entry music from RWO is the song "Die Macht vom Niederrhein" by the punk band Emscherkurve 77 . RWO's biggest rivals are traditionally the neighboring clubs Rot-Weiss Essen and MSV Duisburg.
Since June 2011 Rot-Weiß Oberhausen has had its own TV channel "RWO-TV" on YouTube. Founded in the 3rd league, so that fans are provided with match reports and interviews despite the sporadic free TV reports. The concept has now been revised. A magazine appears weekly with different topics and the game summary of the current game day. The magazine is designed and moderated by Milena Wolbert (media officer of the association), who, together with Maximilian Gregorius (press spokesman), broadcasts the away games of Rot-Weiß Oberhausen live on the internet via the internet radio "RWO fm".
Other former departments
From 1946 to 1975 there was a very successful athletics department, which won a total of 68 German championship titles. The best known athletes were the all-rounder Maria Sander , the sprinter Fritz Roderfeld , the middle-distance runners Rolf Lamers and Willi Wülbeck and the discus throwers Jens Reimers and Dirk Wippermann .
Until 2000 there was a billiards department in the club. This was five times 14/1 endless team champion and twice 8-ball team champion and is thus the record champion in team pool. With three titles in the German 8-ball team cup, RW Oberhausen is also the record cup winner. In addition, RWO played in the 1st pool billiards Bundesliga for years . In addition, the multiple world and European champion Oliver Ortmann and the ten-time German champion Günter Geisen played at Rot-Weiß Oberhausen; Geisen for about 27 years.
