Verein für Bewegungsspiele Stuttgart 1893 e. V., or VfB Stuttgart, is a German sports club based in Stuttgart. The club is known for its football team which currently competes in the Bundesliga–Germany’s top-flight league. VfB Stuttgart plays its home matches at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, located near the Cannstatter Western. Meanwhile, the second team currently plays in the Regionalliga Sudwest.
VfB Stuttgart has claimed the national championship five times, with the most recent being the club’s 2006/07 campaign. Other titles of the club include three DFB-Pokal titles and a three UEFA Intertoto Cup titles.
The longest rivalry of VfB Stuttgart is with the Stuttgarter Kickers. But, with the two clubs playing in different leagues since the latter’s relegation to the second division in 1992, this derby has been overtaken by the Baden-Württemberg-Derby between VfB Stuttgart and Karlsruher SC. Furthermore, there’s also a one-sided rivalry going on between VfB and Bayern Munich as VfB fans are furious at Bayern for buying some of Stuttgart’s key players.
