About VfR Aalen

VfR Aalen is a football in Germany based in Aalen, Baden-Württemberg.


The club was founded on 8 March 1921 out of the football department of the gymnastics club MTV Aalen and has led a largely unremarked existence as a lower division side. In 1939 Aalen was promoted to the first division Gauliga Württemberg, one of sixteen top-flight leagues established through the re-organization of German football under the Third Reich. They played there until 1945, typically finishing in the lower half of the table.

After the war the club was joined by Boxclub Aalen in 1950. They went on to the third tier Landesliga Württemberg and in 1951 captured the title in what had become the Amateurliga Württemberg (III). After a single season appearance in the 2nd Oberliga Süd in 1951–52 they returned to play in the III and IV divisions over the next two decades. The club slipped to fifth division play in the late 70s for a couple of seasons before recovering itself. At the turn of the millennium Aalen managed an advance to the third division Regionalliga Süd and have played at that level as a mid-table side since the 1999–2000 season. Their best recent result there was a fourth place finish in 2007–08, which qualified them for the new 3rd Liga. After spending just one season in the 3. Liga, Aalen were relegated after the 2009-10 season. The club finished in 1st place in the Regionalliga Süd at the conclusion of the 2010-11 season and were promoted to the 3. Liga. Aalen were subsequently able to retain their place in the 3. Liga during the 2010-11 season.

The football team is part of a larger sports club which also offers its members gymnastics, table tennis, and cheerleading.

The team plays its home matches in the Scholz-Arena – popularly known as the Rohrwang – which has a capacity of 11,183.
