On September 9th, 1893, at the Stuttgart tavern "Zum Becher", something very special occurred. 20 young football enthusiasts, who were enjoying the sport in Stöckach gathered to form FV Stuttgart 1893.
On April 2nd, 1912 at the „Hotel Concordia“ in Cannstatt, FV Stuttgart 1893 fused together with Kronenklub Cannstatt to form VfB Stuttgart 1893 e.V. However, September 9th remains the day upon which the founding stone for the club was laid.
From those 20 founding members, who gathered all of those 124 years ago to form a club which has since claimed five German championships and three domestic cup wins, there is now a club boasting some 56,000 members.
