The gymnastics and sports club Munich from 1860 e. V. , TSV 1860 Munich or 1860 Munich for short , often referred to as Münchner Löwen , 1860 , Sechzig or Sechzger , is a sports club from the Bavarian capital Munich . The association based in the Giesing district, which also calls itself "Munich's Great Love", was founded on July 15, 1848 for the first time. After a ban because of "republican activities" it was founded again on May 17, 1860. His football department was not founded until April 25, 1899. The club's colors are green and gold, but the white and blue of the football department is better known. The club has over 23,000 members (2019/20 season) and is one of the 25 sports clubs in Germany with the largest number of members .

The business of the professional team as well as the U21 and A-Juniors has been managed since 2002 by TSV München von 1860 GmbH & Co. KGaA , which has been spun off from the entire club . Since 2011, 60% of the shares have been owned by HAM International Limited owned by the Jordanian businessman Hasan Ismaik . The association holds the remaining shares. The general partner authorized to manage the company and fully liable is TSV München von 1860 Geschäftsführungs-GmbH , whose shares are fully held by the association.

National and even Europe-wide fame grew for the strongest club in Munich before arch rivals FC Bayern , especially in the 1960s, when the soccer team not only won the DFB Cup in 1963/64 and the German soccer championship in 1966 , but also until 1965 advanced to the final of the European Cup Winners' Cup , but lost 2-0 to West Ham United in front of a record crowd of 100,000 spectators at London's Wembley Stadium . In addition, the footballers can refer to two runner-up championships (1931 and 1967) and a first cup success in the war year 1942.

Even if TSV 1860 Munich is known to the general public as a football club, there were and are further departments in the club, some of which can look back on national and international successes. For example, athletes from TSV 1860 Munich won three Olympic gold and several hundred German championship titles.

Brief history


This section mainly presents the history of the main club and football department, historical data and events of other departments can be found in the respective sections of the departments. An overview of all placements of the first soccer team can be found under season balances of TSV 1860 Munich .

1848 to 1933: beginnings of the association

The club was first founded as a Munich gymnastics club on July 15, 1848 in the hall of the “Buttleschen Brauerei zum Bayerischen Löwen”, only to be banned again just one year later (1849) because of “republican activities”. The new official founding then took place on May 17, 1860, followed by the renaming to Turnverein München from 1860 in 1889. Ten years later, on April 25, 1899, the Löwen football department was founded, which, however, only three years later, on July 27, 1902, for the first time hosted a public game with another team, they lost to 1. Munich FC 1896 2: 4.

In 1911, the leased property on Grünwalder Strasse became the club's new home ground, on which the Heinrich-Zisch-Stadion, named after the president at the time , was completed for up to 40,000 spectators.

In 1931 the team reached the final of the German championship for the first time , where it was defeated by Hertha BSC .

1933 to 1945: The TSV under National Socialism

Compared to FC Bayern , which was then reviled as a “Jewish club” , the Munich lions were “one of the few major football clubs that showed a clear affinity for the growing National Socialism before 1933. ” As one of the “National Socialist flagship clubs ” (alongside Werder Bremen and VfB Stuttgart ) also took over almost all high offices in the club at the Löwen National Socialists, such as the NSDAP and SA members Fritz Ebenböck , Sebastian Gleixner and Emil Ketterer . As early as September 1933, a general meeting of the gymnastics club decided to implement the leader principle . Shortly thereafter, the entire rest of the sports club dissolved and in March 1934 all of its departments joined the National Socialist gymnastics club under the name “Gymnastics and Sports Club Munich from 1860”. Under the new club leader, the SA-Sturmbannführer Fritz Ebenböck, a new uniform statute was also decided, which also included the adoption of an Aryan paragraph . That meant the final exclusion for the few remaining Jewish or “non-Aryan” members of the TSV. While the footballers of the TSV were initially able to successfully prevent their department from being occupied by National Socialists, a senior Nazi official took over the post of head of the football department in the form of NSDAP city council member Sebastian Gleixner, "one of the most ruthless ringleaders of the NSDAP in Munich".

Relations with the NSDAP in particular helped the club to save itself from bankruptcy in the 1930s .

Until the 2000s, the association's self-portrayal was limited to sporting events during this period, the political background was not addressed. Even today, the role of TSV 1860 close to the Nazis is still not mentioned on the official website of the professional football department during the Nazi era. However, today the association supports the fan group “Lion fans against the right”, which has existed since 1995, and also the time-critical book project “The lions under the swastika”.

In 1942, winning the Tschammer Cup was the first title to be won at the DFB level.

1945 to 1963: Post-war period and qualification for the Bundesliga

After the Second World War, the sporting fate of TSV 1860 initially changed. In 1945 he was a founding member of the newly created Oberliga Süd and in 1948 took part in the first final round of the German soccer championship after the war as the South runner-up, but was eliminated in the preliminary round against 1. FC Kaiserslautern. For the time being, this should be the TSV 1860's last participation in the finals; only in the last final round before the introduction of the Bundesliga in 1963 he took part again. After relegation from the Oberliga Süd in 1953, he spent several years in what was then the 2nd League South (1953-55 and 1956/57) before TSV played again continuously in the Oberliga Süd from 1957. In 1961, Max Merkel took over the team and just led them to the important introduction of the Bundesliga to the championship in the Oberliga Süd, which qualified them for the newly founded Bundesliga.

In the Oberliga Süd, a total of five places were awarded for the new league after a twelve-year evaluation , with the champions of the last Oberliga season 1962/63 of the five Oberliga seasons qualified in each case.

  • 1963 to 1970: Championship and European Cup final

    In 1963 TSV 1860 Munich was a co-founder of the Bundesliga . In 1964, the club won the DFB Cup for the second time with a 2-0 win in the final against Eintracht Frankfurt and reached the final of the European Cup Winners' Cup a year later . TSV 1860 Munich lost the final in front of 97,974 spectators at London's Wembley Stadium with 0-2 against West Ham United . In the 1965/66 season, the Lions topped the table from the 8th to the 22nd matchday, but were then ousted by Borussia Dortmund and temporarily also by FC Bayern Munich . Only on the penultimate match day was TSV able to recapture the lead in the table with a 2-0 win in Dortmund against their direct opponents. With a 1-1 draw on the last matchday against Hamburger SV , the first place could be defended and the club became German champions for the first and only time to date (players of the championship team see here ). In the next year, the club was able to become runner-up and reached the second round of the European Champions Cup , in which the Munich Lions were eliminated by Real Madrid , but then things went steadily downhill and in 1970 they were relegated to the regional league .

    1970 to 1977: second rate

    From the establishment of the Bundesliga to the establishment of the 2nd Bundesliga in 1974 , the Regionalliga was the second highest division in Germany. The TSV 1860 Munich missed promotion to the Bundesliga again and again until 1977.

    On August 15, 1973, the TSV 1860 regional league match against FC Augsburg set an all-time record for attendance at the Olympic Stadium. After the opening goal of the 60s in the third minute, fans waiting to be admitted stormed the stadium, injuring 136 fans, especially when climbing over the fence. The estimates of the audience finally present range from a general 80,000 to 90,000 viewers to 100,000 viewers. The game is considered to be the second division game with the highest number of spectators worldwide and ended 1: 1.

    After dramatic promotion games against Arminia Bielefeld , returned to the Bundesliga in 1860 after seven years of abstinence for the 1977/78 season.

    1977 to 1982: roller coaster ride and license withdrawal

    In the Bundesliga, however, the club was only able to hold out for a year and had to be relegated as the third from bottom. In the 1978/79 season 1860 appeared in the southern season of the 2nd Bundesliga. With a second place and a successful relegation against Arminia Bielefeld , he was immediately promoted again. After two years of first class, the Löwen had to relegate from the Bundesliga again at the end of the 1980/81 season . After the resurgence in the 1981/82 season had been missed by just one point, the DFB withdrew the club's license in the summer of 1982 because TSV 1860 Munich had incurred too great financial burdens after being promoted back to the Bundesliga. From 1980 the then young Rudi Völler had played for TSV 1860 Munich; but he left the club because of the license withdrawal in the direction of Werder Bremen .

    1982 to 1994: The lean years until the rise again

    The forced relegation to the third-class Bayernliga marked a major change in the Löwen team. After 14 players left the club, 20 new ones were signed. Nevertheless, it was clearly not enough to rise again. In the following season, the promotion round was reached, but the Lions won there only one game, the other five were lost. In the 1984/85 season there was even a threat of relegation to the regional league, although four coaches tried, namely Bernd Patzke , Oktavian Popescu, Erich Beer and Wenzel Halama . With Halama, the second place in the Bavarian League was achieved in the following season 1985/86 and the team - as a successor for SpVgg Landshut - was able to participate in the promotion round again. With five defeats and one draw, however, they only finished fourth. A couple of times in the following seasons he just missed the championship title and a possible promotion until he finally succeeded in 1991 under coach Karsten Wettberg . However, the club then went straight back to the Bayern League; but only for one year, because then Werner Lorant started the march into the 1st Bundesliga.

    The cheering of the fans was overwhelming when the last game of the second division season 1993/94 came to an end in Meppen , when TSV 1860 Munich became the first club ever to make the direct march from the amateur camp (Bayernliga) to the Bundesliga with a 1-0 win and this belonged again after an absence of 13 years.

    1994 to 2004: The years in the Bundesliga

    Up to 2000, 1860 was able to improve steadily - with stars like Thomas Häßler and Martin Max - and, in addition to some participation in the UI Cup and the UEFA Cup, qualified for the Champions League with a 4th place in the Bundesliga. In the 1999/2000 season, TSV 1860 also succeeded for the first time in winning both derbies in one season against FC Bayern Munich (1-0, 2-1). In terms of sport, the TSV could no longer build on their earlier successes. Finally, Werner Lorant was sacked on October 18, 2001 after the team had suffered a 5-1 defeat against Bayern Munich five days earlier .

    The stadium question escalated during this time after the club no longer pursued a renovation of the stadium on Grünwalder Strasse in 1995 and the games were now completely held in the Olympic Stadium, which was not loved by many fans. After an initial wave of euphoria with club records in terms of attendance average and good successes in the Bundesliga, interest in the Lions gradually ebbed, also due to declining performance. There were big differences among the fans because of the location issue, which led to a real division between different fan groups. The possible renovation of the Olympic Stadium and the involvement of TSV 1860 Munich in the new building of the Allianz Arena in Fröttmaning were also discussed between these groups.

    After Lorant's successor Peter Pacult in 1860 was unable to build on the successes from the 1999/2000 season, he was replaced in March 2003 by Falko Götz . He had to rebuild the squad for financial reasons and replace the "old stars" Häßler, Max and Davor Šuker with young players. After a decent start to the season, Götz 'team got into the relegation battle at the beginning of the second half of the season. Since club president Karl-Heinz Wildmoser and his son Karl-Heinz Wildmoser junior were arrested in March 2004 on charges of bribery in the course of building the stadium, the club slid into a threatening crisis within a short time. Competence disputes between the media inexperienced butcher Karl Auer , who succeeded Wildmoser as president, and the ex-minister of education Hans Zehetmair as vice president culminated in the dismissal of trainer Götz. Zehetmair, who was the first to announce the resignation of the trainer without consulting the president and management, was sharply criticized for his advance and then resigned. Götz's successor was former player Gerald Vanenburg , who could no longer prevent the relegation of the 60s to the second division.

    The preliminary investigation against the former President Karl-Heinz Wildmoser was later set, while his son, who was also the managing director of the club and the stadium operator of the Allianz Arena, was sentenced to several years in prison.

    2004 to 2011: Mediocre in the second division

    Vanenburg's successor as head coach was Rudi Bommer , who was experienced in the second division and under whose aegis the direct resurgence was targeted. However, he was dismissed due to a sporting failure in November 2004 and replaced by Reiner Maurer , the former assistant coach and head coach of the U23. After a strong second half of the season, the promotion hopes of 1860 only burst on the last day of the match, so that the team only finished fourth.

    Allianz Arena glowing blue

    The first season in the new Allianz Arena started promisingly for the Lions; At the beginning of the first half of the season, the team was temporarily still leader of the table, but was only one of the extended favorites during the winter break. A 0-0 at the start of the second half against bottom of the table LR Ahlen led to the dismissal of coach Maurer. His successor was Walter Schachner , and Stefan Reuter also took over the position of manager.

    In terms of economy and sport, the spring of 2006 was threatening for 1860. In March, President Auer announced his resignation for health reasons, his successor was the previous chairman of the supervisory board, Alfred Lehner . Stefan Ziffzer was installed as managing director . A short time later, FC Bayern saved the lions from bankruptcy by purchasing the shares in the Allianz Arena for 11 million euros and assuring a right of repurchase. The club got under the coach Walter Schachner in acute danger of relegation. Only on the penultimate matchday did TSV 1860 Munich secure relegation with a 1-0 home win against relegation rivals 1. FC Saarbrücken . Ultimately, the team finished the season in 13th place.

    The club's youth work, on the other hand, was crowned with success. The B-Juniors (U 17) won the German championship for the first time. The DFB awarded the Fritz Walter Medal to the brothers Lars (gold, born in 1989) and Sven Bender (bronze, born in 1989) and to Alexander Eberlein (silver, born in 1988).

    Albrecht von Linde became the new president of the association on March 28, 2007. However, the return to the Bundesliga did not succeed in the third attempt. After a season without ups and downs, the club under Walter Schachner and his successor Marco Kurz , who took over the team in spring 2007, came eighth in the final accounts. Economically, 1860 reached calmer waters again in the 2006/07 season.

    After a good first half of the 2007/08 season, the team slipped into midfield in the second half. Relegation was only secured on the penultimate matchday with a 1-1 draw in the home game against VfL Osnabrück, and in the second half of the table the club even took the last place in the table. After the game against Osnabrück, managing director Stefan Ziffzer said of Linde President: “The fish stinks from the head, and with us the head is the president. This president is a shame. ”In the presence of sponsors who applauded Ziffzer, von Linde then announced his resignation without notice. The reason for the dispute were diametrical views on the economic course of the football department and media reports, which were not denied by the presidium, about the pending expulsion of sporting director Stefan Reuter. On May 26, 2008, Albrecht von Linde announced his resignation and the Supervisory Board unanimously elected Rainer Beeck as his successor at the same meeting .

    After only eight wins in the 2008 calendar year and one more defeat in the first game of 2009, managing director Stefan Reuter was on leave. Manfred Stoffers succeeded him as managing director, Miroslav Stević became the new sports director. Head coach Marco Kurz was also on leave at the end of February, and his successor was the previous assistant coach Uwe Wolf . Under his direction the Lions won the next two games, but in the nine subsequent games the team was only able to collect six more points, none of which was a victory. After the 32nd matchday, Wolf was replaced by Ewald Lienen . The team took one point from the last two games of the season, which was enough to keep them up.

    In the spring of 2009, Nicolai Schwarzer from Berlin was in discussion as a new investor and made a down payment on the purchase agreement. After quarrels in and between the management, the supervisory board and the DFL (German Football League), Schwarzer got out again. The advance payment that had already been made was converted into a long-term loan, which TSV 1860 repaid in 2011 when investor Hasan Ismaik joined the company (Schwarzer waived part of his investments).

    The season 2009/10 was not very successful for TSV 1860 at the beginning, in the meantime the team even threatened to fall to the relegation place. In the course of the first half of the season, however, the lions stabilized and finally ended the season in 8th place, which meant an improvement over the previous season for the first time since relegation, except for the 2006/07 season. In the DFB-Pokal 2009/10 , the sixties managed to rise to the second round of the cup after beating Hertha BSC . There they finally failed at FC Schalke 04 . At the request of the coach Ewald Lienen, the contract was terminated. He moved to Olympiacos Piraeus . Reiner Maurer was his successor. In June 2010, managing director Manfred Stoffers resigned after a lawsuit that had been lost in the first instance against Allianz Arena GmbH because of the payment of catering costs. On July 28, 2010, the former President Karl-Heinz Wildmoser died. Since August 1, 2010, Robert Niemann has succeeded Manfred Stoffers. In October 2010, two points were deducted from TSV 1860 for violating the licensing regulations.

    2011 to 2017: Hasan Ismaik joined and went down

    The financial situation remained tense, which is why several players were sold or given away during the 2010/11 season. In the further course of the season, representatives of the club spoke several times that this was about to bankrupt. After rumors about the entry of an investor from the Arab region had already surfaced the year before , these became more concrete at the beginning of April 2011 when the Jordanian businessman Hasan Ismaik expressed interest in joining TSV 1860. In the following weeks, several conditions were met, including the creditors of 1860 Munich waived 40 percent of the respective claims. The DFL rejected the submitted contract proposal twice, but accepted it after various adjustments. After the team had finished the season sportily in the middle of the table, the cooperation agreement between 1860 and Ismaik was signed on May 30, 2011, which transferred 60 percent of the shares in TSV Munich from 1860 GmbH & Co. KGaA to Ismaik's company HAM International Limited , based in Dubai and thus saved from bankruptcy with a transfer of 18.4 million euros . In order to comply with the 50 + 1 rule , Ismaik only holds 49 percent of the voting rights. At the beginning, Ismaik formulated his goals: "We want to make the sixties strong, we don't want any more financial holes, we want to be in the top division within three years."

    In the 2011/12 season, TSV 1860 was able to demonstrate a higher average home audience average compared to the previous season for the first time since the 2005/06 season. Due to the rise of SpVgg Greuther Fürth that season, the Löwen had been the longest team in the 2nd division since the 2012/13 season . After a good start to the 2012/13 season with 16 points and no defeat, coach Reiner Maurer was dismissed after only four points had been scored from the following six games. On January 15, 2013, after a board meeting of several hours, it was announced that Sven-Göran Eriksson was to be signed as the second trainer alongside Alexander Schmidt . However, this canceled the club a few days later.

    After the team was only in the midfield of the table shortly after the start of the 2013/14 season, the club management drew the consequences and dismissed coach Schmidt after only 6 days of play as of August 31, 2013 in order not to jeopardize the "goals for this season". On 7 September 2013, Friedhelm Funkel announced his commitment. On April 2, 2014, the club announced the end of the cooperation with coach Friedhelm Funkel at the end of the season. After the next game he was released and co-trainer Markus von Ahlen took over the team until the end of the season.☃☃☃☃☃☃

    The new coach for the 2014/15 season was the Dutchman Ricardo Moniz , who wholeheartedly claimed to be the second division champion, but was dismissed on September 24, 2014 after a disappointing start to the season, whereupon Markus von Ahlen returned as coach. Julian Weigl, Yannick Stark, Vitus Eicher and Daniel Adlung were demoted in August after they celebrated until the middle of the night after a 3-0 defeat against Leipzig and blasphemed about the club.

    On February 17, 2015, van Ahlen was on leave and replaced by Torsten Fröhling , the coach of the U-21 team. With him as coach, TSV 1860 ended the season in 16th place and had to play in two relegation games against Holstein Kiel to stay in the second division. After a goalless draw in front of an outside crowd, the team won the second leg on June 2, 2015 in Munich 2-1 and thus prevented relegation in the 2015/16 season.

    Due to the previous failures of the association and failed negotiations with the investor Ismaik, the presidium resigned in the summer break of 2015 with immediate effect. In November 2015, Peter Cassalette was elected as the new President. Fröhling's contract was extended to 2016 after having previously considered signing Felix Magath . On October 6, 2015, Fröhling was on leave; Benno Möhlmann became the new trainer. In April 2016, after 19 points in 19 games and 10 defeats, they parted ways with Möhlmann. The previous U-21 coach Daniel Bierofka took over the team on the penultimate place in the table. With three wins in a row he was able to save the Lions from falling into the third division. In June 2016, Eichin succeeded Oliver Kreuzer as Managing Director Sport at TSV 1860 Munich.

    For the  season 2016/17  took Kosta Runjaić the post of head coach. Obliged were u. a. Bundesliga experienced players like Ivica Olić or Stefan Aigner . Ismaik also brought up a new stadium construction. The new lion arena should offer space for around 50,000 fans and a lion zoo should also be built next to the stadium. Since, contrary to expectations, the Lions were involved in the relegation battle again in the first half of the season, Ismaik announced on December 17, 2016 that the collaboration with Runjaic would be ended. In this context, the managing director of the KGaA, Thomas Eichin , was also publicly dismantled, since Ismaik decided to dismiss him over Eichin. In November 2016, at the initiative of Hasan Ismaik, Eichin was dismissed as managing director and demoted to sports director, and shortly afterwards he was on leave. The American Anthony Power was installed as the successor to Eichin as managing director . From an economic point of view, a lot has been invested in the team during the season. For example, Brazilian striker Ribamar was signed by Botafogo FR for 3.2 million. In addition to the later promoters VfB Stuttgart and Hannover 96 , TSV 1860 maintained the most expensive squad in the league.

    After Daniel Bierofka had taken over the position of coach until the end of the first half of the season, the former FC Porto and Olympiacos Piraeus coach Vítor Pereira was introduced in December 2016 . In April 2017, Ian Ayre was hired by Liverpool FC as the new managing director of KGaA. The sporting decline continued, however. The season was completed with 36 points on the relegation place. There the TSV met SSV Jahn Regensburg . After a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Regensburg and a 2-0 home defeat in the second leg, which was overshadowed by riots among 1860 fans in the final minutes, the club was relegated from the 2nd Bundesliga.

    Since 2017: present

    Game scene from the away game in the Regionalliga Bayern against VfB Eichstätt in 2017

    On the day of relegation from the 2nd Bundesliga , the president of the e. V., Peter Cassalette , back from his office. At noon before the relegation second leg, the managing director of KGaA, who had been obliged less than eight weeks earlier, Ian Ayre, had resigned from his position. The amount of money required to obtain the license for the 3rd league was not deposited by the deadline. The reason for this were differences between the e. V. and Hasan Ismaik as partners of the KGaA. Then the deputy chairman of the board of directors Robert Reisinger became the new president of the e. V. and elected into office at the general meeting in July 2017, and the economist Markus Fauser, partner and managing director of a company specializing in interim management , was temporarily appointed managing director of KGaA.

    In the 2017/18 season the team competed in the Regionalliga Bayern ; Daniel Bierofka became the new coach . The core of the team was formed by the second team (U21) from the previous season , with which Bierofka had occupied second place in the Bavarian regional league. Jan Mauersberger and Sascha Mölders remained from the regular squad of the professional squad . The team was strengthened selectively with some external additions, such as Timo Gebhart . Shortly before the start of the season, the insolvency of TSV München was averted by 1860 GmbH & Co. KGaA , not least due to the termination of the lease for the Allianz Arena and the associated return to the municipal stadium on Grünwalder Strasse . On October 31, 2017, the club won the autumn championship in the Regionalliga Bayern with 43:13 goals, thirteen wins and only two defeats on matchday 19. In January 2018 Michael Scharold succeeded Markus Fauser as managing director, and Günther Gorenzel was also hired as sporting director. On May 5, 2018, TSV 1860 München became champions in the Regionalliga with a 3-0 away win against FC Pipinsried . In the promotion games, the team met the south-west champions 1. FC Saarbrücken . After a 3-2 away win and a 2-2 win in front of their home crowd, TSV 1860 Munich rose to the 3rd division , where they finished 12th in the following season.

    In the early years, the gymnasts and athletes of the club used the gymnast's cross , which is composed of the four Fs of the motto " fresh, pious, happy, free ", as the club's coat of arms. TV Munich later used a logo in which the three letters T, V and M were superimposed. The shape and type of the three letters were variable. These three letters were also in the center of the crest of the game team, which was founded in 1899. The “game team” circles the club's logo, and a game ball is shown in the lower center of the coat of arms. After the club was renamed TSV 1860, the footballers were also given a new name: "Football department in TSV 1860 Munich". In their new elliptical coat of arms, two stylized hands lift a ball into the air.

    In the search for its own emblem, the civic association struck gold with the Bavarian lion in the 1870s , which symbolized perseverance and courage. With a resolution of March 13, 1880, he took over the lion as a club symbol. Since then, the athletes of the sixties have been competing "with the lion on their chest". As is often the case with heraldic lions , the lion of the Munich gymnastics club was also double-tailed. In order to avoid being confused with the lion tails, the two tails were adjusted and looped one behind the other, while the two tails of the brewery lion are symmetrical to each other.

    In 1911 the lion was finally adopted as the official club coat of arms. After the clean divorce, the TV and the SV received similar coats of arms, in both cases the lion is framed by a white and blue striped diamond. While the lion in the TV coat of arms is surrounded by an octagon that is still common today, the SV lion, signed “1860”, stands out from the diamond in a simple rectangle. Over the years, the shape of the lion has changed several times, the octagonal border was almost always part of the overall picture, and the year "1860" was usually shown in the coat of arms.

    In the 1950s the shape of the lion was changed again. Now the club had a coat of arms that was to remain on the players' clothing until 1973. This coat of arms has been used again in the recent past on various fan articles and the jersey for the 150th anniversary. In 1973 the lion in its current form was also worn on the jerseys after it had been used in this form in the club for a long time. Since then, this coat of arms has served as the official club coat of arms, with the lion and the year of its foundation framed by the well-known octagon. In the recent past, the lion without "1860" or with the white and blue diamond in the background has been used less often. A special logo was designed for the 150th anniversary in 2010, with the lion's head emblazoned above the words "150 years TSV 1860".

    The U23 after beating Hessen Kassel in May 2011

    TSV 1860 München II has been playing as U21 in the Bayernliga Süd since 2017 , the games were played on the training grounds at Grünwalder Straße 114. The little lions are trained by Frank Schmöller . The final rankings since 1957 include seasonal balance to find .

    In 1959, the reserve team of the Munich Lions rose for the first time in the third-class - at that time two-part - Bayern League. In 1961, the team reached first place in the southern season. The playoff against 1. FC Haßfurt , the winner of the northern season, in which normally the promoted to the II. Division would have been played, did not take place because the amateur team of TSV 1860 was in principle not entitled to promotion. In 1963, the team was relegated to the newly founded fourth-class Landesliga Süd .

    In this, the amateur team of the Sechzger - interrupted by two seasons in the district league Upper Bavaria - hold until 1976. After another four years in the district league, he was promoted to the regional league again in 1980. The season 1981/82 ended the 1860 amateurs in second place, but since the license for the 2nd Bundesliga was withdrawn from the first team, the club decided to start anew with the reserve team a few leagues lower. While the first team stayed in the Bayernliga for almost a decade, the second team played in the lower Upper Bavarian and Munich soccer leagues.

    In 1990, a year before the first team returned to paid football, the second team rose to the fifth-rate regional league in Upper Bavaria, where they stayed until 1995. From 1995 to 1997 the 1860 amateurs rose - like the professional team in previous years - twice in a row and competed in the third-class Regionalliga Süd from the 1997/98 season . After three final placements in midfield, in 2001 they were relegated back to the Bayern League.

    The team was henceforth continued as U23 to introduce young players to the first team. After finishing the season in second place in 2002 and 2003, the little lions returned to the regional league in 2004 as Bayern league champions. In the following two seasons they would have been relegated in terms of sport, but remained in the regional league as other clubs no longer received a new license. In 2007 , 1860 II only secured the class on the last day of play with an 8-3 win in Kassel . In 2008 , the team missed qualifying for the new 3rd division by three points.

    The first three seasons of the new fourth-class regional league completed 1860 II in midfield. In the fourth and final season in the Regionalliga Süd, the little lions were 13.

    In the course of the introduction of the Regionalliga Bayern in the 2012/13 season , the function of the second team was changed again. She is now listed as a U21. In addition to two goalkeepers, the squad should be 15 field players, five of whom should come from the older A-youth class, from the first and second adult years. During games, the squad is filled with reserve players from the first team. The total budget of the second team was reduced from 1.6 million euros to 500,000 euros. At the end of the first season of the Regionalliga Bayern the little lions were in first place and thus qualified for the promotion round to the 3rd league , in which they failed at SV Elversberg with 2: 3 and 1: 1. In the 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons they reached 3rd place. After 10th place in the 2015/16 season and 2nd place in 2016/17 , the little sixties were in second place in the all-time table of the Regionalliga Bayern after five seasons .

    After the relegation of the first team in 2017, the second team was forcibly relegated from the regional league. She has been playing in the fifth-class Bayernliga since the 2017/18 season .

    In contrast to the reserve teams of other Bundesliga clubs, the little lions could never qualify for the DFB Cup . In 1997, 1998 and 2003 they won the Toto Cup on the Upper Bavarian level, but on the Bavarian level - where a victory entitles them to participate in the DFB Cup - they could not prevail.

    The TSV 1860 reserve team was often trained by former Löwen players , for example Bernhard Winkler and Daniel Bierofka . In the more recent past, many of the coaches of the second team later became the head coach of the professionals, for example Reiner Maurer , Torsten Fröhling and Daniel Bierofka.

    The first A-youth team (U19) currently plays in the A-Juniors-Bayernliga , the second highest league, while the U17s play in the B-Juniors-Bundesliga . All other youth team games in the respective top division.

    The greatest successes were winning the German B-Junior Championship in 2006 and the DFB Junior Club Cup victories in 2000 and 2007 . Further successes are listed on the data subpage .

    The TSV 1860's youth training center, headed by Ernst Tanner at the time, was awarded three stars in 2008 by the DFB and DFL examination commissions and is one of the top places in the ranking of German professional clubs. In summer 2009 Jürgen Jung took over the management of the NLZ. In 2011 the NLZ was again awarded three out of three possible stars. Jung left the club in January 2012, and Wolfgang Schellenberg took over the management of the NZL, who is also the second assistant coach of the professional team. In 2014 the NLZ received three stars again, and a bonus star was also awarded due to the permeability between the junior and professional areas. The award with three stars followed again in 2018.

    Since 2002, a total of 85 players who had played at TSV 1860 since at least the U19, later also belonged to the Löwen professional squad .

    Third and fourth team

    Since the 2011/12 season, TSV 1860 has been competing with a third team in the A class and a fourth team in the C class . To this end, the club entered into a syndicate with the traditional sports club Weiß-Blau Sechzgerstadion . This was founded in 2003 by fans of TSV 1860 and took part in the league from 2004. By 2007, the team was promoted to the A-class, in which they could hold until 2011. A second team from Weiß-Blau Sechzgerstadion played in the C-class since 2007.

    In the first season, both teams just missed promotion. The third team was promoted to the district class in 2013, the fourth to the B class in 2014. In 2016 the third rose to the district league, the fourth in 2017 to the A-class. In 2019/21 1860 III plays in the district league Munich 3, 1860 IV in the A-class Munich 4.


    In 2016 the Löwen founded a futsal team. In 2018, the Lions were able to advance to the first-class Futsal Regionalliga Süd by renouncing a competitor , but after only one season in the first class, they were relegated to the Futsal Bayern League . In 2019, the Futsal Lions won the BFV's first ever association cup.

    Women's soccer

    As early as the 1970s, there were women at TSV 1860 who played football . However, these teams only lasted a few years. At the beginning of the 2000s, in 1860, a cooperation with the FFC Wacker Munich started for a few years , which mainly focused on the exchange of experiences and joint units in the youth field.

    In August 2020, a subdivision for women's football was founded within the football department, which will start playing in the BFV from autumn 2021. The women will train and play in the Freiham sports park and on the St.-Martin-Straße sports complex in Obergiesing .

    Other teams and subdivisions

    The traditional team , to which numerous former lion players belong, does not take part in the league. The team, formerly headed by Matthias Imhof and Jürgen Korus , mainly competed in friendship and charity games until 2016. In 2009, the traditional team was able to win the Löwen Cup - a small field tournament with teams from different areas and areas of TSV 1860 - in the third attempt ; In 2010 she defended the title. At the end of 2017, the team was reactivated under the leadership of Michael Hofmann , although they only play friendly matches and tournaments exclusively for traditional teams.

    The old men teams take part in the regular league operations in the categories Seniors A (over 32) and Seniors C (over 45). Both teams rose to the district league in 2019.

    The club also has a referee department . The referees of TSV 1860 are qualified for games at the local level through to league games at the Upper Bavarian level.

    The club's own security service is called Security-Löwen . The approximately 65 members regulate the security at games and other events of the association.

    From 2016, the club, within a syndicate with changing partners, provided a team in the blind soccer Bundesliga . Due to various difficulties in making arrangements with the partners of the gaming community and because not enough players are available for a team of their own, this commitment is currently suspended.

    Starting times

    When the footballers of TV 1860 played their first game on July 27, 1902, it took place on the Schyrenwiese . This “youth gymnastics playground” was built by the city in 1896 and was now made available to the TV 1860 team “for the purpose of game propaganda”. After the Sechzgern in the spring of 1904, the continued use of Schyrenwiese had been forbidden, they found only at the Haymarket , shortly after the Flaucher a new venue. However, both venues were only partially suitable for playing football, so that the players looked for a new venue in the summer of 1904. They found this in Holzapfelkreuth , where the TV 1860 set up its own forest playground, which was opened on August 9, 1904. However, since this place was relatively remote, it was soon only used on Sundays, on weekdays the footballers trained on the Theresienwiese . In 1908 Wilhelm Hilber, who played as a half-forward in the third team, leased a fenced meadow at Giesinger Alpenplatz . However, the pitch soon became too small for the eight teams that played football on TV 1860 in 1910. At the beginning of 1911 the Sechzger moved for the fifth time in their only twelve-year football history.

    Sechzgerplatz and Sechzgerstadion

    The standing hall of the Grünwalder Stadium

    Hilber leased an agricultural area on Grünwalder Strasse in the south of Giesing. In the spring of 1911 a sports field with a grandstand was built on it and the first game was played on April 23. 1922 bought 1860, the previously leased land and built the Sechzgerplatz in the following years to Sechzgerstadion from the end of 1925 was the stadium at Grünwalder road built. In 1937 the stadium had to be sold to the city to pay off debts. After the destruction in World War II, new stands were built on all sides of the stadium by 1958, and it now held around 50,000 spectators. The attendance record had already been set in 1948 when 58,200 spectators crowded around the field of play between TSV 1860 and 1. FC Nürnberg . In the 1960s, the lions celebrated their greatest sporting successes in the Grünwald stadium .

    During the two world wars, the stadium on Grünwalder Strasse was temporarily closed. From 1916 to 1917 the stadium of MTV 1879 served as an alternative venue , from 1943 to 1945 the Dante Stadium and the Post Stadium on Arnulfstrasse. Before the completion of the stadium construction in 1926, the Sechzger moved to the field of FC Teutonia on Oberwiesenfeld for some popular games . In 1946 the Oberligaheim game against VfB Stuttgart had to be played in the Neckar Stadium, as the stadium had been closed a week earlier due to riots at a home game of Bayern. In 1970, a regional league game was played in the Dante stadium due to a scheduling conflict with the stadium users FC Bayern and FC Wacker.

    Olympic Stadium and temporarily return to Giesing

    Olympic Stadium

    In late 1972 they moved to the to the 1972 Olympic Games built Olympic Stadium on Oberwiesenfeld order. In the summer of 1973, the match against FC Augsburg, with an estimated 90,000 to 100,000 spectators, set the attendance record in the stadium, which then officially held almost 80,000 people. Until 1982 the TSV 1860 commuted between the Olympic Stadium and the Grünwalder Stadium at irregular intervals. Only when the license was withdrawn did the lions return home to Giesing's heights for over a decade . But even in the Bayern league, some games were played in the Olympic Stadium, once each time the Sechzger had to host their home games in Erding, Lohhof, Fürstenfeldbruck and Vaterstetten, as a ban on the Grünwalder Stadium had been imposed due to crowd riots. Several cup games took place on the training ground.

    The stadium announcer between 1982 and 1991 was the actor and presenter Werner Schulze-Erdel .

    When they returned to the Upper House of Football in 1860 in 1994, the Lions played the majority of their home games in the stadium on Grünwalder Strasse, and four games with an increased security risk took place in the Olympic Stadium. After the 1994/95 season, TSV 1860 apparently finally moved to the Olympic Stadium, where it stayed until relegation in summer 2004. Only for a few UI Cup games did the Sechzger avoid the Grünwalder Stadium and the Augsburger Rosenaustadion . In the 2004/05 season, like ten years before, most of the games were played on Giesing's heights , six safety-related games in the Olympic Stadium.

    Allianz Arena

    Allianz Arena

    On May 30, 2005, TSV 1860 opened the newly built Allianz Arena in the north of Munich with a game against 1. FC Nürnberg , which the two major Munich clubs had planned and built together. A special feature of the arena is the facade made of ETFE foil cushions, which can be illuminated in blue, white or red. One year before the project was completed, then President Karl-Heinz Wildmoser and his son of the same name, who at the time had been managing director of KGaA, were arrested on suspicion of infidelity and corruption in the tendering of the project. Until April 2006, Allianz Arena GmbH was half owned by both Munich clubs, but then TSV 1860 had to sell its shares in the arena, in which the opening game of the 2006 World Cup took place a few weeks later , to FC Bayern in order to avoid bankruptcy to avert. At the same time, the then managing director Stefan Ziffzer signed a rental agreement with Allianz Arena GmbH that was valid until 2025. In the period that followed, representatives and supporters of TSV 1860 repeatedly expressed concerns about the TSV 1860's remaining in the arena, which was too oversized for the claims of the Munich Lions . The high rental costs were repeatedly blamed for the tight financial situation of 1860 München KGaA, despite the high audience figures for second division conditions.

    In March 2009, the club finally set up a "Stadium Future Project Group", which in the following months dealt with possible solutions that should bring the TSV 1860 an improvement in the stadium situation in the medium and long term. At the beginning of November 2009, the group published their results in which they unanimously agreed to return to an expanded Grünwalder stadium with a capacity of 30,000 to 35,000 spectators. However, as the owner of the stadium on Grünwalder Straße, the city rejected these plans.

    Return to the Sechzgerstadion

    Interior view of the Grünwalder Stadium

    After relegation from the 2nd Bundesliga and the third division license revocation at the end of the 2016/17 season, the aim was to return to the Sechzgerstadion for the restart in the Regionalliga Bayern. On July 11, 2017 the lease with the Allianz Arena was terminated:

    "With the termination of the rental agreement, the Allianz Arena is no longer the venue of TSV 1860 Munich, a later return is excluded."

    Training ground

    The youth teams and low-class amateur teams of TSV 1860 have been playing on the club's grounds at today's Grünwalder Straße 114 since 1928. However, since 1996 the U19s have mostly played their league games in the Grünwalder Stadium. In 1968 the association built a changing room and administration building. In the 1990s, today's office and the building of the youth boarding school were built. In 2012 there are four playing fields and one artificial turf pitch on the site .

    When TSV 1860 took part in the first Bundesliga season from the summer of 1963, the team played their games in adidas jerseys and pants . Until 1976, adidas was the official supplier of the Munich Lions . From 1976 to 1993 the six-cylinder units were equipped by Puma . After returning to professional football in 1993, Lotto was the supplier of TSV 1860 for two years. Between 1995 and 2006, the Lions played in Nike jerseys , after which Kappa supplied the clothing for two years . From 2008 onwards, Erima equipped TSV 1860 with jerseys, training and leisure clothing as well as sports equipment and accessories for three years. Uhlsport became a new supplier for the 2011/12 season , the contract runs until 2015. From 2015 the lions will be equipped by Macron .

    Main sponsor

    In the summer of 1973, when jersey advertising was still controversial, the sponsor's lettering appeared on the jerseys for the first time at 1860 Munich. The beverage manufacturer Frucade was the main sponsor of the Münchner Löwen for six seasons until 1979 . In the following years the main sponsor kept changing after a few seasons. Double shower , the clothing company Hedos , the Löwenbräu brewery , the furniture company Karnehm and Lancia each advertised on the shirts of the Sechzger for two years , the Hacker-Pschorr brewery and the cleaning agent manufacturer Ha-Ra each for one year. The United Insurance was the main sponsor of the Löwen for three Bayern league seasons . From 1994 to 1999 Löwenbräu was once again a sponsor of the club, which is now playing in the Bundesliga. The tour operator FTI then advertised on the shirts of TSV 1860 for three years, from 2002 to 2005 Liqui Moly was the main sponsor of the Lions , and in the 2005/06 season the watch manufacturer Festina .

    Sponsor board at the training ground in autumn 2010

    In May 2006 TSV 1860 signed a long-term contract with the sports betting provider betandwin . Due to the controversial legality of advertising for private betting providers, this soon caused problems for the club, for example the Munich public prosecutor's office observed the presentation and sale of the jerseys on the training grounds for several days. On August 3, 2006, the VGH Bayern banned advertising so that betandwin, which has been called bwin since August 1, was no longer allowed to advertise on jerseys and on advertising boards . From then on, the TSV 1860 ran on the jerseys with the words “we win”. Werder Bremen , which was also sponsored by bwin and also had legal problems with advertising, took over the “we win” shortly afterwards. Even if the management of TSV 1860 tried to lift the advertising ban in the following months, no success could be achieved. The contractual relationship between bwin and the Löwen was finally terminated prematurely towards the end of the season .

    In the summer of 2007, the previous "presenter", the personnel service provider Trenkwalder , became the main sponsor. Trenkwalder started the "Löwen-Job-Offensive", which was supposed to find a job for every TSV 1860 supporter looking for a job in order to make the club "the club in Germany with the lowest unemployment rate among the fans."

    When Trenkwalder ended his sponsorship at TSV 1860 in summer 2009, Liqui Moly became the main sponsor again. A year later, the Polish software company Comarch , which had previously been one of the sponsors of TSV 1860 as “presenter” since December 2009, took on the role of main sponsor. The sponsorship contract was originally valid for three years, but was prematurely terminated by Comarch in 2011.

    The team started the 2011/12 season without a main sponsor, with the players wearing the slogan “Munich's great love” on their jerseys in the first few games. In mid-September, before the eighth match day, a contract was signed with the British sports car manufacturer Aston Martin until 2014 . In the summer of 2013, the British automobile manufacturer terminated the contractual relationship prematurely. The successor was Volkswagen AG , which advertises with its sustainability strategy “Think Blue.” On the jerseys. The contract with VW AG was valid for three years. In the course of the affair over manipulated exhaust emissions , Volkswagen stopped sponsoring. For the 2016/2017 season , the insurance company Die Bayerische became the new jersey sponsor.

    Other sponsors

    In addition to several sponsorship contracts with a smaller scope, there are also contracts with the “premium partners” Hacker-Pschorr , MAN , the stainless steel dealer Linster , the street cleaning company AHD Sitzberger GmbH, the Munich automobile trading company MAHAG and the Stadtsparkasse München .

    From 2007 to 2014 the second team of TSV 1860 had its own main sponsor. Hacker-Pschorr, which has been a premium partner of the first team since the summer of 2004, when Löwenbräu ended its sponsorship activities at 1860, expanded its commitment and since then has advertised on the jerseys of the little lions . The youth teams of TSV 1860 are sponsored by the Stadtsparkasse München. The Münchner Wochenanzeiger has been advertising on the jerseys of the amateur teams since 2012 .



    Munich's great love

    With around 20,000 members, TSV 1860 Munich is one of the twenty largest sports clubs in Germany .

    In 1964, the first year in the newly founded Bundesliga, the club had 3944 members. By 1968 the number had risen to 6,492, but fell again to 4,814 in the two following years. In the regional league that followed, TSV 1860 had between 4,000 and 5,000 members. From 1974 to 1993 the number of members remained relatively constant between 5,500 and 7,000, and the ten years in the third-class Bayernliga did not have a negative effect on the numbers. With the renewed promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga in 1993, the number of members began to rise again. In 2001 the highest level of 23,602 members was finally reached. Since then the membership has gradually decreased. In the summer of 2007, the number of members fell below 20,000 for the first time in ten years. In 2009, according to President Beeck , the Munich Lions "achieved a turnaround"; in January the TSV 1860 had 20,079 members again, on May 1, 2009 it was 20,762. In the summer of 2009 the association had 19,490 members. The difference to May can be explained by the fact that all club resignations of one year are valid on June 30th. Since then, the number has remained between 19,000 and 20,000 members each year at the start of the season. In the summer of 2017, TSV 1860 achieved a trend reversal with 20,108 members (as of July 1, 2017) and has had over 20,000 members again for many years. The increase in the number of members is due to the double relegation including the forced relegation to the Regionalliga Bayern and the unclear situation of the soccer company to the limited capacity of the venue, as it is almost only possible for members to get tickets. The increasing independence of investor Hasan Ismaik is also cited as a reason for the increasing number of members. On May 1, 2019, a new membership record was reached with 23,653.

    The majority of the members come from the football department of TSV 1860 Munich, which had 18,037 members in May 2010.


    Even in the major league, the Lions had an average attendance of around 15,000 every year. In the Bundesliga season 1963/64, an average of 31,949 viewers wanted to see the TSV 1860 games. From then on the numbers fell continuously, only in the championship season 1965/66 a high average was achieved again with 29,316. In the first regional league season in 1970/71, only 9,022 spectators came to the stadium, after which the numbers rose again. In the last regional league season 1973/74, an average of 28,070 wanted to see the six- men play. In the two Bundesliga seasons 1977/78 with 28.094 and 1979/80 with 28.067 again high numbers were achieved. In the Bayern League, to which the Lions belonged between 1982 and 1991, the number of viewers was very high for amateur league standards. In 1984/85 a low of an average of 3,410 spectators was reported, in 1990/91 an average of 10,400 came to the third division games of TSV 1860. In the other Bayern league seasons the attendance figures ranged between 6,000 and 8,500.

    After returning to professional football in 1993, the numbers rose again quickly. In 1993/94, an average of 17,647 spectators came to the games of the Munich Lions in the 2nd Bundesliga , and a year later there were 30,576 in the Bundesliga. In 1996/97 a new high was reached with 38,794, after which the numbers fell again. Only in the 2000/01 season, the most successful sporting season in recent decades, was there a slight increase compared to the previous year with 32,706 spectators. Also in the relegation season 2003/04 more spectators came to the stadium than before, here an average of 28,331 was achieved. In the first second division season, an average of 20,117 came to the home games of TSV 1860, a year later the Sechzger played their first season in the Allianz Arena. A new high was reported here, with an average of 41,371 viewers watching the games. In the following seasons, the number of spectators fell continuously again, in 2010/11 for the first time since 1993/94 fewer than 20,000 wanted to see the lions . In the two following seasons, the number of viewers stabilized at just under 23,000. In 2013/14 there was another drop to 19,312, the lowest number of viewers in 20 years. In the seasons up to 2017, there was an increase every year until 2016/17 an average of 25,900 spectators came to the home games. However, several free ticket campaigns by sponsors and the association also played a role.

    After the double relegation in 2017, the average attendance fell due to the move to the Grünwalder Stadium. An average of 12,465 was achieved out of 12,500 possible seats, which means that the sixties had the highest stadium occupancy in all regional leagues. In the summer of 2018 the Grünwalder Stadium was expanded to a capacity of 15,000 seats.

    After the promotion to the 3rd division and the associated return to professional football in 2018, the average attendance increased to 14,952. As in the previous season, the Lions had the highest stadium occupancy in the league.

    TSV 1860 has two full-time fan advisors who take care of the fans' concerns. The Fan Council , which includes representatives of the largest fan groups, has existed since October 2008 . The two fan representatives and the Munich fan project are also part of the fan council in an advisory capacity . The club has the following larger fan groups:

    • The working group of the TSV 1860 fan clubs , ARGE for short , is the umbrella organization of numerous TSV 1860 fan clubs. The ARGE was founded in 1977, and in 2009 around 500 fan clubs are members of the ARGE, with around 53,000 supporters.
    • PRO1860 was launched in February 2006. The motivation of the founders was that there should also be a representative group for fans who are not organized in fan clubs, as is the case for fans in fan clubs. Today PRO1860 sees itself as a representative of the individual fan, it does not matter whether he already belongs to another group in the vicinity of TSV 1860 or whether he stands alone.
    • The Cosa Nostra was an ultra grouping that existed from 2001 to June 2016.
    • The Giasinga Buam existed from 2008 to July 2016. They have been the leading ultra group in the fan curve since the reduced activity of the Cosa Nostra after investor entry.
    • The Löwenfans against right exist since 1995, they stand up against racism, anti-Semitism, discrimination, sexism and homophobia in the field of football. In 2009 they were awarded the Julius Hirsch Prize by the DFB for their commitment .
    • The Munich Lions have existed as an ultra group since the middle of the 2016/17 season after the dissolution of the Cosa Nostra and the Giasinga Buam . At first they were only in the fan curve for away games.

    Neo-Nazi fans

    The TSV 1860 had avoided coming to terms with its own role in the Third Reich until the 2000s . A lack of distancing meant that neo-Nazis also felt at home in the club and in the stadium. Many Bavarian NPD cadres were regular guests at the Löwen. Well-known neo-Nazis from around the convicted right-wing terrorist Martin Wiese have also been spotted. However, the association did little to counter the activities of NPD cadres and right-wing comradeships.

    At the beginning of the 2010s, there were regularly 30 to 50 people who, according to the Munich fan project, clearly belonged to the right-wing spectrum, stood in block 132 of the Allianz Arena, along with a fluctuating number of sympathizers. The lion fans against the right assumed up to 100 Nazis in Block 132 in 2011. The Nazis would more and more often "play as hosts", the NPD is trying to gain more influence. The former neo-Nazi and founder of Aussteigerhilfe Bayern, Felix Benneckenstein , who himself had stood in Block 132, stated in 2014 that the majority of normal fans had no sympathy for the political ideas of right-wing fans, but that they would not act against the right either as long as they did not openly agitate in the block. In 2012, the right-wing extremist fans appeared organized as a group Outsiders with their own fence flag, but this open association did not last long.

    Right-wing extremist songs and slogans such as “Ajax is a Jewish club”, “Augsburg Gypsies”, “Star in the ID card” or the “U-Bahn to Auschwitz” were repeatedly heard around games. The neo-Nazis also tried to recruit young people from the lions. They distributed relevant leaflets several times. The star reported in 2010 that members of the neo-Nazi band Feldherren and the skinhead thugs group Kraken also regularly attended home games.

    After a fight at a home game in April 2011, when Ultras opposed the neo-Nazis, the club announced in response to increasing action against neo-Nazi fans. But little has happened. Anti-racist fan initiatives like the Löwenfans gegen Rechts felt abandoned by the club's management. Löwen Vice President Franz Maget rejected the accusation and said that it was anchored in the statutes that racism led to the club being excluded. While Maget stated that as many Nazis were active in the other Bavarian stadiums as in 1860, the fan representatives of the southern German first and second division clubs made it clear that there was no such established right-wing scene at the other clubs. In fact, the association refused to join Norman Bordin, for example , and publicly distanced itself from right-wing extremism several times. There was a clear line of action in those years when the composition of the association's management was constantly changing, but not. The right fans also tried to appear in the games of the second team in the Sechzgerstadion, but met resistance from the fan scene. After the two ultra groups of TSV 1860 disbanded in the summer of 2016, there were fears that the right-wing scene could now take the lead in the fan curve, but this did not happen.

    In September 2016 the Mittelbayerische Zeitung reported on the Upper Palatinate fan club "Löwenfreunde Lamer Winkel" and its members' links to the right-wing extremist party Der III, which emerged from the forbidden comradeship Free Network South . Way . A reaction from the club, the professional football company or the consortium responsible for the fan clubs initially failed to materialize. Der Spiegel took up the topic in spring 2017 and, in addition to the right-wing extremist connections of the fan club members, also addressed the failure of the association to distance itself or take other measures. The fan representative responsible for fan clubs Jutta Schnell played down the right-wing extremist connections. A spokesman for the lion fans against the right called this behavior "typical": It is preferable to duck away. After this nationwide reporting, the fan club was excluded from the association and then dissolved.

    Even after relegation and return to the Sechzgerstadion, neo-Nazi fans are still present in the curve, some of whom openly display their convictions. Michael Scharold, managing director of the KGaA, distanced himself on behalf of the club "from stadium visitors who use TSV 1860 Munich to spread legal ideas", but saw himself unable to take action against these people as long as there was no violation of the stadium rules . In February 2020, President Reisinger signed an anti-discrimination agreement with fan representatives, city councilor Verena Dietl, sports advisor Beatrix Zurek and representatives from Türkgücü and FC Bayern, the two other clubs in the stadium, which is to be implemented in the stadium and its surroundings in particular.

    Other departments

    In 2018, in addition to the football department, the following departments exist: basketball , disabled sports , mountaineering , boxing , golf , bowling , athletics / fitness , wrestling , roller sports , skiing and cycling , tennis , gymnastics and recreational sports as well as water sports . In addition, there were other departments in the history of the association that were later dissolved or joined another department.

    In the early years in particular, there were other activities in addition to "physical training". Just one year after the re-founding of the association, a group of singers was brought into being in 1861, which contributed to "beautifying the social life in the association and [...] taking care of the mind and soul." In 1890 a drum team was brought into being called, a house music team at the beginning of the 20th century . At the beginning of the 20th century, the artistic team also ensured a reputation in social life. There was also a motorsport department in the 1920s and 1930s . Until the 1990s there was a dance sport department , in 1971 Peter and Hanni Neubeck won the amateur world and amateur European championship titles here in the field of Latin American dances . From 1969 to 1978 the dancers of the TSV 1860 were able to place themselves regularly at the top of the German championships.

    Gymnastics and recreational sports

    For several decades the gymnasts formed the center of the club. Only in the 20th century did other athletes come to the fore. Since the 1860s, gymnasts have regularly participated in the German gymnastics festivals. In 1889 they were co-organizers of the VII German Gymnastics Festival in Munich. In 1896 the club caused a stir when a gymnast performed the highest handstand in Germany on the Zugspitze .

    The gymnasts were able to celebrate numerous successes at the gymnastics festivals. Among other things, they won nine championship titles at the 10th German Gymnastics Festival in Nuremberg in 1903. The greatest success for the department was Innozenz Stangl's gold medal in team gymnastics with the German team at the 1936 Olympic Games . On May 9, 1937, TSV 1860 Munich won the German championship in club team gymnastics in Münster before the gymnastics club Leuna and the gymnastics club Bad Kreuznach. This success could be repeated in 1938. In addition to Stangl, Gustav Schmelcher , Franz Kindermann and Martin Geistbeck were successful gymnasts who contributed to the championship successes. Both Geistbeck and Schmelcher belonged to the core Olympic team.

    Overall, the gymnasts of TSV 1860 have won several dozen team and individual titles at national level in the past. On September 1, 1957 , the men and the then top athlete Walter Pensberger became team champions for the 15th time at the German gymnastics club championship. At the beginning of the 1960s, Georg Brysten (artistic gymnastics) and Evi Winzinger (apparatus gymnastics) were among the most successful gymnasts in the club . Other top athletes were Helga Klein, Elke Magerkurth, Gertraude Schubert and Ursula Preuße. The gymnasts' successful coach at the time was Rupert Zürcher .

    In 1972 former Löwen footballers founded the Leisure Department. In addition to recreational football, a few years later there were also offers for fitness and stamina. In 2005, the two previously independent gymnastics and leisure departments merged to form a gymnastics and recreational sports department . The leisure area is now covered by offers such as parent-child gymnastics, gymnastics and self-defense , while the rhythmic gymnastics division is used for competitive and competitive sports. Bernadine Madl has recently achieved success in this sport ; since 2004 she has won several Bavarian championship titles and single-digit placings at the German championships.

Hermann Eberlein won the German championship title over 5000 meters in 1939 .

    In the 1950s, the athletes of the Munich Lions were among the top German athletes . In 1954 and 1956 Karl Oweger became German champion in discus throwing , and in 1957 Gerd Hilbrecht took the title. Zenta Kopp ran the world record in the 80-meter hurdles in 1956 with 10.6 seconds .

Women achieved this title for the first time in 1958, which they were able to confirm in 1959, 1960 and 1964. In 1961 Dieter Urbach became German champion in the shot put.

    Josef Schwarz jumped 8.35 meters in 1970, which was a new European record and a world best for the year. The later Olympic champions Klaus Wolfermann and Eva Wilms also belonged to the athletics department of TSV 1860.
