About 1.FC Dynamo Dresden

SG Dynamo Dresden are a Football in Germany, based in Dresden, Saxony. They were founded in 1950, as a club affiliated with the East German police, After German reunification, Dynamo played four seasons in the top division Bundesliga (football) (1991–95), but have since drifted between the second and fourth tiers. The club achieved promotion to the 2. Fußball-Bundesliga for the 2011–12 2. Fußball-Bundesliga.


Early years (1950–1954)

The city of Dresden had played a significant part in German football before and during World War II with local club Dresdner SC earning List of German football champions in 1943 and 1944. After the war the Allied occupation of Germany dissolved organizations across the country, including sports and football clubs like SC, as part of the process of denazification. DSC was reestablished in 1946 as Friedrichstadt (Dresden), but with the eastern part of the country, including Dresden, under Soviet control, authorities considered the club to be too bourgeois. After a riot at the final of the 1949–50 DDR-Oberliga, the club was dissolved. was unhappy that Dresden was enjoying footballing success, while the capital, East Berlin, lacked a strong footballing team. In 1954, Dynamo's team were moved to Berlin, to form Berliner FC Dynamo. and by 1962 they were back in the DDR-Oberliga, and SL Benfica on their way to four quarter-final finishes. During this time Dynamo came up against West Germany opposition for the first time, losing against Bayern Munich 7–6 on aggregate in the last 16 of the 1973–74 European Cup. Kreische was the league's leading goalscorer on four occasions, and was named in East Germany national football team's squad for the 1974 FIFA World Cup, along with team-mate Siegmar Wätzlich.

History was to repeat itself, though, at the end of the 1970s. Erich Mielke, again jealous that provincial clubs were dominating the league while his beloved Berliner FC Dynamo were starved of success, began to manipulate the league in favour of the side from the capital.

Capital dominance (1978–1991)

East German football had generally been set up in favour of the "Football club (GDR)", who were usually delegated the best players, but the authorities had usually kept out of on-pitch matters. This changed in the late-1970s and 80s though, as players and referees were coerced by the Stasi into helping the cause of Berliner FC Dynamo.

During the 1980s, the club continued to be a regular participant in European football, generally earning respectable results. In addition to this, striker Frank Lippmann took the opportunity of the match in Krefeld to escape to the west. Dynamo recorded their best ever European performance in the 1988–89 UEFA Cup, beating AS Roma on the way to a semi-final defeat against VfB Stuttgart. Cor Pot, a Netherlands, was brought in to replace him, Loose ended the season unbeaten and secured 3rd place, and a playoff against VfL Osnabrück which Dynamo won 2010–11 2. Fußball-Bundesliga Relegation play-off to earn promotion to the 2. Fußball-Bundesliga.

Dynamo Dresden played a good first half of the 2011–12 2. Fußball-Bundesliga season. Reaching a stable place the team kept away from struggling against relegation. While Dynamo Dresden won the 2011–12 DFB-Pokal match against Bayer Leverkusen with 4-3 (after 0-3 in deficit), Dynamo Dresden was excluded from the 2012/2013 DFB-Pokal due to fan excesses and abuse of fireworks during the 2nd round match against Borussia Dortmund (0-2).

In 2007 the club reverted to the name SG Dynamo Dresden. While many former security service clubs have struggled to shed their negative image, particularly Berliner FC Dynamo, Dynamo Dresden and remain popular and well-supported, having come to represent their home city.


Dynamo play at the Glücksgas Stadium,. In common with many clubs from the former east, the club has occasionally spilling over into football hooliganism, but has taken steps to reduce this.

Relationships with other clubs

Dynamo Dresden have a particularly fractious relationship with Berliner FC Dynamo, who were formed out of the club in 1954, and were their main obstacle to success in the 1980s, but the two clubs rarely meet these days. Lokomotive Leipzig are traditionally Dynamo's main rivals in the battle for Saxony dominance, although this to extends to other clubs including Chemnitzer FC, Sachsen Leipzig and currently Erzgebirge Aue. In Dresden, Dynamo's main rivals are Dresdner SC, although they are currently ill-matched as DSC are mired in local football. Another club, SC Borea Dresden were formed out of SG Dynamo Dresden-Heide, a former feeder club for Dynamo, but there is no longer an official connection.

Colours and crest

When they were formed as SG Volkspolizei Dresden, the club wore green and white, the state colours of Saxony, including the country's second most-capped player, Hans-Jürgen Dörner, and its joint top scorer, Hans-Jürgen Kreische. Twelve Dynamo players won Football at the Summer Olympics medals, including six gold medallists in Football at the 1976 Summer Olympics. After German reunification a number of Dynamo players went on to represent the Germany national football team, including Jens Jeremies, Ulf Kirsten, Olaf Marschall and Alexander Zickler.

Five Dynamo Dresden players were named East German Footballer of the Year: Hans-Jürgen Dörner, Hans-Jürgen Kreische, Andreas Trautmann, Ulf Kirsten and Torsten Gütschow. Dörner won the award three times, and the latter three players were its last three winners. Kreische and Gütschow were the leading scorers in the DDR-Oberliga seven times between them.

Perhaps the most notable Dynamo Dresden player is Matthias Sammer. He played for the club from 1985 to 1990, during which he won 23 caps for East Germany. He later made 51 appearances for Germany, winning the UEFA European Championship in UEFA Euro 1996 and played at club level for VfB Stuttgart, Internazionale and Borussia Dortmund. With the latter he won two German football champions, the UEFA Champions League and the Intercontinental Cup (football), and was named European Footballer of the Year in 1997.
