SV Eintracht Trier 05 is a German football club based in Trier, Rhineland-Palatinate. It was formed in 1948 out of the merger of the predecessor sides Westmark Trier (1905) and Eintracht Trier (1906).




Pre war (1905-1945)

Both Westmark Trier (1905) and Eintracht Trier (1906) played first in the Bezirksliga Rhein-Saar and then in the Gauliga Mittelrhein, one of 16 top flight divisions formed under the re-organization of German football under the Third Reich. Both teams were relegated in 1936 and did not re-appear in the top flight until 1941 when they were both promoted to the Gauliga Moselland Gruppe West. Westmark Trier were relegated in the same season however Eintracht Trier fared slightly better lasting a further two seasons before being relegated. In 1943 the two clubs united as KSG Eintracht/Westmark Trier but only won a single point in the elven matches played, conceded 52 goals and only scored 13. In 1944 World War II had taken over the region and the Gauliga Moselland was suspended.

Post war (1945-2000)

The two clubs officially joined together on March 11, 1948 and was re-named SV Eintracht Trier (05) . Eintracht resumed play in the top flight Oberliga Südwest (Gruppe Nord), but were never a serious contender at that level, consistently finishing well behind the leaders. By the time the Bundesliga, Germany's new professional football league, was formed in 1963 the club had fallen to second division play.

They continued to play tier II football in the Regionalliga Südwest until slipping briefly to the Amateurliga Rheinland (III) where they finished well but were unable to make it out of the division until their third attempt. The club moved up to the 2. Bundesliga Süd in 1976 where they suffered a poor season and finished in 17th place. They avoided relegation only because Röchling Völklingen, who had finished above Eintracht Trier were denied a license for financial reasons. Trier was able to turn that break into a five year stay in the second division.

In 1981 the two divisions of the 2. Bundesliga were combined into one, and the number of teams playing tier II football reduced from 42 to 20. Eintracht Trier missed the cut and found themselves playing in the Amateur Oberliga Südwest (III). The club went on to perform well through the next decade on into the mid-90's and earned two consecutive German Amateur Championships in 1988 and 1989, but were again unable to break through to the next level in several attempts.

The club enjoyed a memorable season in 1997-98 in what had by then become the Regionalliga West/Südwest (III). While they managed only a fifth place finish, they had a strong run through the German Cup

Recent history (2000-2007)

The years 2002 to 2005 can be considered as the club's most successful. They enjoyed a 3 season spell in the 2 Bundesliga. They achieved their highest finish ever when they finished in 7th place in the 2. Bundesliga in the 2002/03 season.

The decline of the club began with relegation into the Regionalliga on May 22, 2005. Due to the relegation of the club manager Paul Linz resigned and was replaced by former Trier Captain Micheal Prus. The start of the Regional League season was disappointing and the change of manager to Eugen Hach in October 2005 could not stop the rot. Relegation followed again and the club started the 2006/07 season in the Oberliga Südwest.

The aim of the club was promotion straight back to the Regionalliga, the men in charge of this rapid promotion challenge were Adnan Kevric and Roland Seitz however Seitz left to take over at Paderborn within just a few days of his appointment. Kevric was to see out the rest of the season with the team before resigning his position on March 3, 2007 after a 2:0 home defeat at the hands of FV Engers 07 ended the financially urgent promotion challenge. Herbert Herres then took over as head coach however he then resigned as manager on April 3, 2007 following a 3:1 defeat against Sp Vgg EGC Wirges. Former player Werner Kartz took over until the end of the season. Under Kartz the team managed to lift itself once again and even managed to win the Rhineland Cup after a 2-1 victory over TuS on June 7, 2007. This has meant qualification to the 1st round of the DFB Pokal. On August 5, 2007 Trier met Schalke 04 at the sold out Moselstadion tickets for this event were changing hands on eBay for over 60 euros per ticket, however Trier were beaten 9-0 by Schalke 04.

The plan for the 2007/08 season is to finish in the top 4 of the Oberliga Südwest which will guarantee promotion into the newly formed Regional League West for the 2008/09 season. They successfully managed this plan on the 24th May by defeating Eintracht Bad Kreuznach 5-0 ensuring that they could not be knocked out of the top 4 in the remaining match. In doing so they earned promotion to the Regionalliga West.

Colours and badge

The team badge uses the clubs colours, blue and white stripes and incorporates Trier's most famous landmark, the Porta Nigra.


In 1934 the club built its present home The Moselstadion. The Moselstadion is set in the midst of a sports site with several sports fields and tennis courts surrounding it. The stadium holds a maximum of 10,254 spectators with approximately 2,000 seats and terracing for a further 8,000 spectators, of which 2,000 spaces are undercover. The stadium has been gradually improved since it was built culminating in the erecting of floodlight masts in 1998 in time for the DFB Pokal Semi-Final against Duisburg.

The stadium no longer conforms to the DFL licensing regulations and there are plans for a new, modern stadium in Trier, however following the relegation of the club to the Oberliga Südwest these plans are currently on hold.[1]
