Borussia Dortmund, or to give it its full name Ballspielverein Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund, is the second largest sports club in Germany and fourth in the world, made up of over 145,000 members. It is also the most popular football club in Europe based on attendance figures and can rightfully claim a place in football’s elite world clubs.
Founded in 1909 in Dortmund, a city in western Germany, the BvB take to the pitch at Signal Iduna Park wearing their trademark black and yellow strip in front of 81,365 roaring fans on a weekly basis in the Bundesliga. The famous Yellow Wall behind the goal is where you’ll find one of the best atmospheres in Europe.
Dortmund really came to prominence in the 1990s with Ottmar Hitzfeld at the helm. Hitzfeld’s team rose to the top of German football in 1995 and 1996 with back-to-back Bundesliga titles and took to conquering Europe the following year with a 3-1 defeat of Juventus in the final of the UEFA Champions League.
The club went through some financial difficulties in the 2000s however and it wasn’t until the appointment of little-known Jürgen Klopp as manager in 2008 that fortunes began to change. Klopp led the team to back-to-back Bundesliga titles and an appearance in the UEFA Champions League final against rivals Bayern Munich which they lost 2-1.
