Lothar Ulsaß (born September 9, 1940 in Hanover; died June 18, 1999 in Vienna from stroke[1]) was a German football player.[2]

Club career[edit]

Early in his career Ulsaß was a prolific goalscorer at Arminia Hannover in the second tier Amateuroberliga Niedersachsen and later the first tier Oberliga Nord. Eventually Bundesliga side Eintracht Braunschweig took note of Ulsaß, who had already represented the West German under-23 and amateur national teams and was considered a major talent by the German press.[3] He was signed by Braunschweig in 1964 and went on to spend 9 seasons in the Bundesliga with the club. Serving as Eintracht's playmaker, Ulsaß was one of the key players in the team's 1966–67 championship-winning season.[4]

Ulsaß was among the players involved in the 1971 Bundesliga scandal. A number of Eintracht Braunschweig players had accepted bonus payments from a third party for a win in their league game against Rot-Weiß Oberhausen, which was illegal (the game eventually ended 1–1). Ulsaß received a two-year ban and a fine, but was later allowed to transfer out of Germany.[5] He joined Wiener Sport-Club in Austria, where he played for four more years until he retired in 1976.[6]

International career[edit]

Ulsaß represented Germany 10 times, including a 1966 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Cyprus, UEFA Euro 1968 qualifier against Albania, 1970 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Austria and 7 friendlies (he scored a hat-trick in 1965 against Austria).[7]
