Ralf Weber started playing football in 1974 at SpVgg Hainstadt before moving to Kickers Offenbach in 1982. He started in the pro squad in 1987 where he appeared in 50 matches. After Offenbach failed to secure a license for the 2. Bundesliga he moved to local rival Eintracht Frankfurt in 1989. On 4 August 1989 he debuted for the Eagles away at Hamburger SV. The midfielder appeared in the first tier 182 times and in the second one 32 times for Frankfurt. In 2001 he finally retired after being plagued by lots of injuries. Between 1995 and 1997 he only could play two matches for Eintracht, and missed also all of the 2000–01 season, his final.
Legendary is his freaking out after the last fixture in 1991–92 when Frankfurt lost 1-2 against Hansa Rostock, losing the championship on the finishing line. Raging due to a not given penalty kick by referee Alfons Berg after a tackle to Weber by Rostock player Stefan Böger in the penalty box, Weber smashed a TV camera after the final whistle.
