Eintracht Frankfurt was founded in 1920 after a merger of various clubs. Since 1925 the club has been playing its home games in the Waldstadion. This stadium was almost completely renovated for the 2006 World Cup and has been called the Commerzbank-Arena ever since. It can accommodate 51 500 spectators.
Eintracht was one time champion in 1959 and won the UEFA Cup in 1980. Five times the DFB Cup was seized.
After a disastrous 0-5 defeat for the German supercup in its own stadium against Bayern Munich, Eintracht Frankfurt had a difficult competition start. From the home victory in Hanover at the end of September, however, the team of coach Adolf Hutter started running and excellent matches were delivered with excellent results.
In the Europa League, all matches were won in the toughest group. In the end, Eintracht only died in the semi-final. Chelsea was just a little too strong after penalties. In the competition, the team finished seventh.
Visiting a home match of the Adlerträger is recommended. Two Dutch people are active at Eintracht, namely Jetro Willems and Jonathan de Guzman.
