Season overview

VfB Stuttgart began the campaign with the youngest squad of the Bundesliga and were widely seen as a competitor for an UEFA Cup berth. They started up with a 0–3 home defeat against Nuremberg and even dropped in reach of the relegation zone after another home defeat against Borussia Dortmund during the third round.

During the rest of the season the team managed to stabilize in the upper third of the table, eventually winning the last eight games of the season while competitors Schalke 04, Werder Bremen and Bayern Munich struggled to have Stuttgart claim their third championship in the Bundesliga and fifth German championship overall with a 2–1 home victory against Energie Cottbus during the last round of the season.

One week after winning the league championship, Stuttgart failed to win the Double after losing the domestic cup Final against Nuremberg with a score of 2–3.

Manager Armin Veh who claimed his first championship as a Bundesliga coach was elected German Football Manager of the Year while striker Mario Gomez was named German Footballer of the Year in 2007.
