The FC Augsburg, formed on 1 June 1969 when the BC Augsburg and the football department of TSV Schwaben Augsburg merged, is a German football club from Augsburg, Bavaria.[1]

The main reason behind the merger was the decline of both clubs, BCA having been relegated from professional football in 1967 and Schwaben two years later in 1969.[2] The new club was formed with the aim to make a return to the second division Regionalliga Süd but it took until 1973 to achieve this. FCA had an outstanding season in this league in 1973–74, coming close to promotion to the Bundesliga; widely considered to be the greatest performance by the club in the 20th century.[3]

In the years that followed, the club stagnated and existed in the 2. Bundesliga Süd as a lower table side and was relegated from professional football once more in 1979.[3] After a season in the Bayernliga, it returned but missed the cut-off when the new single-division 2. Bundesliga was formed in 1981.

FCA won the league title in the Bayernliga once more in 1982 and returned to the 2. Bundesliga for one more season, missing survival there by only three goals. A 23-year-long stint in amateur football followed. The club had another good season in 1994, winning the league and taking part in the promotion round to the 2. Bundesliga, but failed. Instead, it gained entry to the re-formed Regionalliga Süd that year.

The clubs most difficult moment came in 2000, when it was refused a Regionalliga licence and came close to bankruptcy.[4] It recovered, winning the Bayernliga once more in 2002 and continued an upwards trend when it won the Regionalliga in 2006 to return to professional football, where it plays now.[5]

After a successful 2009–10 season, when the club reached the semi-finals of the German Cup for the first time in its history and came third in the 2. Bundesliga, the team achieved even higher in 2010–11, earning promotion to the Bundesliga, where it finished 14th in its inaugural season. In 2012–13 it set a new Bundesliga record when it managed to avoid relegation despite having only accumulated nine points in the first half of the season.[6] In 2014–15 the club played its most successful Bundesliga season, finishing fifth in the league and qualifying for the UEFA Europa League for the first time.
