Werder Bremen was founded in 1899 by a number of 16-year-old students. In 1963 it was one of the participating teams at the establishment of the Bundesliga. Only in the 1980/1981 season Werder was not active in the highest German professional league.
Die Werderaner became four times champion of Germany. For the last time in 2004. In 1992, the European Cup II was won after a 2-0 victory over AS Monaco. The German Cup, the DFB Pokal, was also captured six times.
The club with the green-white home shirts plays its matches in the Weserstadiom. This stadium seats 42 354 spectators. The coach of the team is Florian Kohfeldt and the star players are Claudio Pizzaro, Nuri Sahin and Davy Klaassen.
Arch rival is Hamburger SV. Unfortunately this other big German club relegated last season, so the supporters will have to wait for the next 'Nordderby'.
