The sports club Eintracht Frankfurt consists of the departments football, handball, basketball, boxing, rugby, ice hockey, curling, hockey, athletics, tennis, table tennis, gymnastics, volleyball as well as the fan & promotion department.
The best known of course is the football department, which was spun off into a separate AG. Frankfurter Eintracht is playing its home games in the Commerzbank Arena.
After around five years of new construction and conversion work and spending around 14 million euros, the new performance centre at Riederwald was officially opened in December 2010. The prestige project unites all 16 sports departments of Eintracht Frankfurt under one roof. In addition to accommodation for football talents, it is also home to the offices of the office as well as a sports hall, fan shop and restaurant.
As a founding member, Eintracht played in the Bundesliga until 1996 and then relegated. In 1998 the return to the football upper house took place, but this lasted only until 2001.
In the season 2002/03 the new ascent succeeded, but only one year later the Frankfurters descended again, and in the following season they ascended again.
After almost five years the era of sparkle ended in May 2009. Friedhelm Funkel had taken over Eintracht in June 2004 and led it into the Bundesliga. The Frankfurt team reached the DFB Cup final and the intermediate round of the UEFA Cup under him in the 2005/06 season.
After the messed up season final, Eintracht ended the 2009/10 season in tenth place with 46 points and even had to let arch-rival Mainz 05 take the lead at the end. After 26 points and seventh place in the first half of the 2010/11 season, they crashed to 17th place. Eintracht left the elite league for the fourth time after 1996, 2001 and 2004.
In the 2011/12 season, Eintracht managed the so important direct promotion to the first league. As a direct ascender to the Europa League: Eintracht crowned a fantastic 2012/13 season with a full 51 points on sixth place - and after seven years of abstinence returned to the European stage with participation in the Europa League qualification.
The greatest success in years Eintracht celebrated with the victory in the DFB Cup Final 2018 against FC Bayern Munich.
The Commerzbank Arena has been the home of harmony since 2005. Where the Waldstadion used to stand – for many Frankfurters, by the way, it is still the only real name for the stadium – not only victories are celebrated and defeats bravely accepted. The arena is also the venue of many big events, like the Festival4Family, the BigCityBeats World Club Dome and concerts of greats like Robbie Williams, Coldplay or Helene Fischer. Regular stadium tours are offered which offer a unique look behind the scenes.
On some days you can watch the players training on the grounds of the Commerzbank Arena and be close to your club. Information about the training times can be found HERE
Please note that there can always be short-term changes in the training process. It should also be noted that not every training session is public. This will also be indicated in the appointment calendar.
Since November 2007, the Eintracht Museum has been housed under the main stand of the Commerzbank Arena on more than 400 m² exhibition space. Here the visitor can immerse himself in the history of the club and marvel at many great exhibits about Eintracht. More about the museum we tell you HERE.
A visit to a home game of course also includes the appropriate equipment such as jersey, flag or scarf.
