The first years of amateur football, 1926 to 1987

The club was founded on January 1, 1926 with 39 members and began playing in the Wiesbaden C-class. Initially the club was called SV Wehen 1926 , but later the addition Taunusstein was added to make it easier for guests to find their way around. In 1927 construction began on the stadium on Wehen Halberg . In 1933, by order of the Nazi administration, the association was connected to the TV 1874 Wehen. After the end of the Second World War , the new establishment took place on March 20, 1946. The SV Wehen now played in the B-Class Wiesbaden. In 1957 the SV Wehen was champion, 1958 and 1959 runner-up. In 1960 the SVW won the district and the district cup. In 1965 the team was promoted to the A-Class Wiesbaden. With 54: 0 points and a goal difference of 117:15, SV Wehen set a national record.

In 1966 the SV Wehen was accepted into the Hessian state sports association. In 1968 the team rose to the district league and reached the district cup final, which they lost to FC Bierstadt. In 1971 the SV Wehen was relegated to the A-Class Wiesbaden. The rise of SV Wehen began when Heinz Hankammer joined in 1979 as main sponsor and president. In 1983 the club rose again to the district league, this time with a short break in 1985 until 1987, when he was promoted to the regional league.

The great rise of SV Wehen, 1988 to 2007

With the national league championship in 1989 there was a further rise in the league. In 1996 they were promoted to the Regionalliga, in 2003 and 2004 the team reached seventh place in the table in the Regionalliga Süd, and in 2005 the promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga was just missed. In 2006, the club again reached third place in the table in the Regionalliga Süd and also made Maximilian Nicu the top scorer. In the 2006/07 season, the 2-0 win at FK Pirmasens, after 81 years of club existence, achieved promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga for the first time . Other successes include winning the Hessen Cup in 1988, 1996 and 2000, which enabled the club to qualify for the DFB Cup in the following season. In addition, SV Wehen was qualified for the DFB Cup in 1992 as a defeated Hessen Cup finalist.

Professional football as SV Wehen Wiesbaden, since 2007

Since the 2007/08 season, the team has not played their home games in the Wehen Stadium on Halberg, as it did not meet the requirements of the German Football League (DFL). A decision was made against an expansion and a new stadium in Wiesbaden, the Brita-Arena . Since the move to Wiesbaden, the football department has been called SV Wehen Wiesbaden and has its own logo. The professional football department was spun off in 2008 into the newly founded SV Wehen 1926 Wiesbaden GmbH , based in Wiesbaden. The logo, which has been in use since 2007, also refers to the new location and shows, in addition to the second “W” for Wiesbaden , the three lilies - the coat of arms of the state capital. The Presidium again refrained from renaming the entire association by the general assembly. The background to this is an agreement with the city of Taunusstein on grants that the city pays for the expansion of the youth performance center on Halberg, which would not apply if the association finally moves to Wiesbaden and changes its name accordingly.

Wiesbaden city bus with club logo

One of the reasons for moving to Wiesbaden, 10 km away, was the infrastructure. The Brita-Arena, located on the eastern edge of the city, can be reached quickly and easily by train and bus. Wiesbaden Central Station can be reached in five minutes on foot, and there are also plenty of parking spaces. The stadium at Halberg in Wehen, however, offered only a few parking spaces and was relatively difficult to reach by bus; Although there is a bus station in Taunusstein, there has been no train connection since 1983. Accordingly, the number of spectators in labor was very low (in the 2005/06 season an average of 688 and 2006/07 1,062 spectators) and so the move to the state capital wanted to appeal to a wider audience, which was also successful: the average attendance increased in the first second division season since moving to Wiesbaden to around 9,000 and the majority of the Wiesbaden population interested in football has now accepted the SVWW as a Wiesbaden team. The new popularity of the SVWW was favored on the one hand by the good start to the season, on the other hand the club also benefited from the lack of inner-city competition, in particular the fall of the traditional club SV Wiesbaden into the seventh division.

In September 2007 Wehen Wiesbaden won 4-3 against 1. FC Köln

The start of the first second division season was quite successful for Hessen. None of the first four season games in the Commerzbank arena were lost. After half of the first half of the season, the team was in the top tier of the league. After moving to the Wiesbaden Brita-Arena, a phase of poor results began: The opening game was lost 1: 2 to the first division club Borussia Dortmund , and the SVWW could not win the next six home games. In the first second division season, three wins and four draws were recorded in the new stadium. Due to the good away record, the SVWW reached eighth place in the table at the end of the season.

In addition, SV Wehen Wiesbaden set two records in German professional football: On the 8th matchday in the game against 1. FC Köln , Ronny König scored the fastest hat trick (in 7 minutes) in the history of the 2nd Bundesliga, and on the 9th. On matchday, Benjamin Siegert scored the fastest goal (8 seconds after kick-off) in German professional football in the game against Greuther Fürth.

In the 2008/09 season the SVWW got off to a bad start and overwintered in the 2nd Bundesliga on the penultimate place in the table. Coach Christian Hock was then dismissed and replaced by Wolfgang Frank , who, however, was released on March 23, 2009 due to persistent failure - the team was at the bottom of the table - and replaced by Sandro Schwarz, who was previously a player has been. But even the renewed change of coach could not prevent relegation to the 3rd division . Because of the poor performance, the average attendance also fell to 7,800 in the relegation season. The season in the DFB-Pokal was more successful , where SV Wehen Wiesbaden reached the quarter-finals and only eliminated after a 1: 2 defeat at Hamburger SV .

In the first third division season 2009/10, the SVWW started again very weakly and was after six matchdays in the last place in the table. After a series of seven games without defeat, the team temporarily stabilized in midfield before slipping again into lower regions of the table. Coach Hans Werner Moser was sacked on February 9, 2010. Under his successor Gino Lettieri , the team lost the first three games, but then improved and secured the class on matchday 35.

In the 2010/11 season, Gino Lettieri's team scratched again and again at the promotion places, and until the last game day there was the opportunity to achieve a relegation place. But on matchday 38, the SVWW narrowly missed the relegation despite a victory in Bremen. With 4th place in the league and winning the Hessen Cup with a 3-0 win against KSV Hessen Kassel , the team secured participation in the DFB Cup.

At the end of July 2011, the SVWW started the new season with the DFB Cup game against VfB Stuttgart . In front of their home crowd, the SVWW had to admit defeat 1: 2 and missed the entry into the second round of the cup. In October 2011, SVWW won the Hessen derby against Kickers Offenbach 3-1.

During the 2011/12 season, the SVWW was rarely able to meet the expectations of the fans and the environment and, despite having well-known players, mostly found itself in the lower midfield of the table. After a 2-0 defeat at VfL Osnabrück in February 2012 and slipping to 13th place in the table, coach Gino Lettieri was released from his duties and the former coach of Hansa Rostock , Peter Vollmann , was presented as his successor. Despite the change of coach, the team deteriorated even further in the table, but managed to stay in class on the penultimate matchday. In December 2012, Michael Feichtenbeiner, a new sports director, was presented. In the 2012/13 season, the team made it to 7th place in the table after a moderate first half of the season. After a good start in the 2013/14 season, head coach Peter Vollmann was dismissed after a series of games without a win; under his successor Marc Kienle, the SVWW still reached 4th place in the table and qualified for the DFB Cup for the first time since 2011. After the promotion opportunities were lost in the following season after a strong first half of the season in the spring of 2015, Kienle was also relieved of his duties, but the interim coach Christian Hock also failed to stabilize the team's performance. In 2016, the SVWW was only able to avoid relegation on the last match day with a goal in stoppage time to 3-1 against VfB Stuttgart II. Also in the 2016/17 season, Wehen Wiesbaden was in danger of relegation, but after another coaching change - Rüdiger Rehm replaced the retired Torsten Fröhling - with a strong second half of the season, they were able to work their way up to 7th place and qualified by winning the Hessen Cup after a 5: 4 - Victory on penalties against SV Rot-Weiß Hadamar for the DFB Cup. In 2018, the SVWW did not succeed in advancing, after the team had occupied 3rd place for a long time, but slipped to 4th place due to a series of defeats at the end of the season. It was not until 2019, after the team had finished the season in third place, that they were promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga in the relegation games against FC Ingolstadt , from which they were relegated at the end of the season.

Greatest successes

GmbH and relationship with Hanvest / Brita

On August 27, 2008, at an extraordinary general meeting of the sports club Wehen 1926-Taunusstein e. V. voted on the proposal of the Presidium around Heinz Hankammer (1931-2016), which aimed to spin off the licensed players' department and the youth performance center (U19, U17, U16) into a GmbH . Hankammer, founder of the local family company Brita , had already supported the club, which made it possible for the first time to move up to the 2nd Bundesliga in 2007 . The motion was accepted without a dissenting vote, whereupon the spin-off into the SV Wehen 1926 Wiesbaden GmbH, founded on July 18, 2008 and based in Wiesbaden, the capital of Hesse, took effect retrospectively as of June 30, 2008 . The share capital is 2.5 million euros, of which 2.25 million euros (90 percent) came from FI Fußball Invest GmbH & Co. KG . The remaining 250,000 euros (10 percent) came from the e. V., who, according to the 50 + 1 rule, holds the majority of votes at the shareholders' meeting . The FI football Invest GmbH & Co. KG is one like the Brita GmbH for Hanvest Holding , which manages the investments of the family Hankammer. The companies are run by Heinz Hankammer's son Markus , who has also been president of the sports club Wehen 1926-Taunusstein e. V. and succeeded his father in this position.

In January 2020, Markus Hankammer stated in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that SV Wehen 1926 Wiesbaden GmbH still has a "relatively high dependency" on him and the family company, which is both the main and name sponsor of the stadium that no share sales are planned. In addition, Hanvest Holding is the owner of the Brita-Arena through a subsidiary . The stadium construction put a strain on the e. V. with liabilities of around 15 million euros. After the spin-off, the e. V. the stadium to the Hanvest subsidiary Stadion Berliner Straße GmbH & Co. KG , which has since rented the stadium to SV Wehen 1926 Wiesbaden GmbH . This made the e. V. "in principle debt-free".

The second team of SV Wehen Wiesbaden began in 1987 in the district league B and from 1992 played continuously in the then regional league , before being promoted to the Oberliga Hessen in 2007. In the 2007/08 season, the second team managed to qualify for the Regionalliga Süd as second in the table , in which they could hold out for three years, until they were relegated in 2011 and played in the Hessenliga from the 2011/12 season. At the end of the 2014/15 season, the second team was canceled from the game.


Since 2007, the home of SV Wehen Wiesbaden has been the Brita-Arena , which can hold 12,566 spectators and is located on the grounds of the Helmut Schön Sports Park on Berliner Straße in Wiesbaden. Since the stadium could not be completed at the beginning of the 2007/08 season, the first season games were played in the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt. The Brita-Arena was inaugurated in October 2007. In the three regional league years from 2008 until relegation in 2011, the second team also played their home games there.

Due to licensing requirements, SV Wehen Wiesbaden has to expand the Brita-Arena from 12,566 seats to 15,000 after promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga in 2019, the work should be completed by 2020.

Youth football

The youth department has existed since 1955. Today around 150 young people are active in nine teams ( U 10 to U 19 ). The U 19 played in the U-19 Bundesliga in the 2010/11 season and, after relegation, back in the Hessen League from the 2011/12 season. In 2017 the U19s rose again to the Bundesliga. The team is trained by the former SVWW professional Nils Döring . The U17 youth team plays in the Hessenliga. The U15 has been in the regional league since 2017 and thus, like the U19, in the highest possible division.

Since October 2016 Christian Wimmer has been head of the youth training center (NLZ) of SV Wehen Wiesbaden. Since his move to the NLZ of VfL Wolfsburg, the former NLZ manager of FSV Frankfurt Armin Alexander has been the new sports NLZ manager.

Fan scene

At the beginning of the 2007/08 season, the first year of professional football for SV Wehen Wiesbaden, the club only had two official fan clubs: The Halbergtramps and the Psychopathen Wehen 1999 . SV Wehen Wiesbaden currently has 15 official fan clubs.
