Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ballspielverein Borussia (BVB) Dortmund is a German sports club based in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia and is best known as one of the most successful clubs in German football. In addition to six German football championships and two German Cup victories, Dortmund won the Cup Winners' Cup in 1966 (becoming the first German team to win a European title) and the UEFA Champions League in 1997. The club was founded 19 December 1909 by a group of young men unhappy with church-sponsored Trinity Youth, where they played football under the stern and unsympathetic eye of the local parish priest. Father Dewald was blocked at the door when he tried to break up the organizing meeting being held in a room of the local pub, Zum Wildsch tz. The name Borussia is Latin for Prussia and was taken from the nearby Borussia brewery. The team began play in blue and white striped shirts with a red sash, and black shorts. In 1913, they donned the black and yellow stripe so familiar today. Over the next decades the club enjoyed only modest success playing in local leagues.show more
