1. FC Eintracht Bamberg is a German football club from the city of Bamberg, Bavaria. The footballers are part of a sports club formed on April 1, 2006 out of the union of 1. FC 01 Bamberg and TSV Eintracht Bamberg. With over 1,500 members it is one of the largest sports associations in the Upper Franconia region of the state and has departments for bowling, Karate, gymnastics, table tennis, tennis, and volleyball.

The two founding clubs initially held discussions around the possibility of a merger in the summer of 2005, but the talks failed when the proposal did not receive the necessary three-quarters majority support of the membership of TSV Eintracht. In January 2006, after another half year of discussion and lobbying, Eintracht's membership overwhelmingly agreed to the merger, while the membership of FC Bamberg followed suit in March.

The newly merged side took up the place of FC in the Oberliga Bayern (IV) and earned an unexpectedly good 5th place result. In the following season, the club stayed on course for a top-four finish, which would have meant Regionalliga Süd qualification, for most of the season but failed in the end, finishing fifth again. However, the insolvency of the Sportfreunde Siegen and the fact that the SpVgg Bayreuth was refused a licence meant, Bamberg did still move up to the Regionalliga[1][2][3].

The club finished in mid-table in the 2008-09 Regionalliga season.


1. FC Eintracht Bamberg plays in the Hauptkampfbahn im Volkspark which served as the home ground of FC prior to the merger. The stadium was opened in 1926 and expanded in 1938 to accommodate 22,600 spectators. The record attendance of 27,000 was established in an amateur contest between Germany and France (1:1) on May 2, 1964.
