Eintracht Frankfurt II was the reserve team of Eintracht Frankfurt.Formerly known as Eintracht Frankfurt Amateure (Amateurs) the team played as U23 (Under 23) to emphasize the character of the team as a link between youth academy and pro team.

The traditional home ground was the Riederwaldstadion but for safety purposes the team was forced to play at Bornheimer Hang. The ground was actually renovated for local rival FSV Frankfurt but since their unexpected promotion to the 2. Bundesliga and the stricter home ground requirements FSV used to play at Eintracht's actual stadium while the SGE reserves play at their home. From 2009-10 both teams, FSV and Eintracht U23 played at Bornheimer Hang.

The squad was frequently supported by Ultras Frankfurt, especially when playing derby matches against Darmstadt and Kassel, both home and away.

In April 2014, the club board of Eintracht Frankfurt decided to withdraw the U23 team from league operations, after a ruling by the DFL allowed all Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga clubs to freely choose whether or not to operate an under-23 reserve team. Previous to that such teams had been compulsory.[1]
