FC Augsburg Stats & History
A merger of TSV Schwaben and BC Augsburg created FC Augsburg in 1969. The club played in the second and third divisions early on and struggled to gain traction. In 1970-71 Augsburg averaged just 300 supporters per match. The return of former German international forward, Helmut Haller, changed the fortunes of the club dramatically.
FC Augsburg averaged 22,000 fans in 1973-74 when Haller arrived. The first title in the Augsburg team stats was during that season and they were nearly promoted to the Bundesliga. They settled for a place in the newly created 2. Bundesliga, instead. Augsburg regularly finished near the bottom of the table and were relegated in 1979.
Upon returning to the Bavarian league, Augsburg immediately won it. However, they were unable to progress through the promotion playoffs and spent most of the 1980s in the third tier. In fact, Augsburg were stuck on the third level of the German soccer pyramid until the mid 90s. Instead of going up, they went down to the fourth tier. That was because Augsburg were unable to secure a license in the Regionalliga due to financial troubles at the time.
