History
• First established in 1893, Stuttgart underwent a significant early evolution in 1912 when they merged with an outfit from the suburb of Cannstatt and set up permanent base there. A dozen years later they appointed their first professional coach in the form of Englishman Tom Hanney, who led the team to the Baden-Württemberg championship title within two years.

• For success on a national level, Die Roten had to wait until 1950, when they claimed their first German title in front of 96,000 fans in Berlin. An estimated 100,000 supporters then turned out to welcome their heroes back in Stuttgart, and the team repeated the feat in 1952, the decade also yielding two German Cup triumphs.

• Founder members of the Bundesliga in 1963/64, Stuttgart went on to reach the UEFA Cup semi-finals in 1973/74 and 1979/80, either side of a short spell in the second tier. Domestically, they fought their way back from relegation to claim league honours in 1983/84, thanks in part to a young Jürgen Klinsmann.

• Another Bundesliga win followed in 1991/92, three years after Stuttgart had lost out to Diego Maradona's SSC Napoli in the UEFA Cup final. They went on to grace their second European showpiece in 1997/98, although the outcome was the same as they finished runners-up to Chelsea FC in the penultimate edition of the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.

• The rest of Europe was made to take note again when coach Felix Magath led an exciting, youthful side to second spot in the Bundesliga in 2001/02, an achievement that earned them a first UEFA Champions League tilt. Five years later, with Armin Veh at the controls, they put together a superb run of results to secure their fifth championship crown.
