Stefan Buck (born 3 September 1980) is a retired German footballer who played as a defender.[1]


Buck played for a number of clubs in Baden-Württemberg before joining Oberliga side SC Pfullendorf in 2000.[2] The club won the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg in 2002,[3] and Buck spent the next two years playing for them in the Regionalliga Süd, before joining FC Bayern Munich II in 2004.[4]

Buck stayed in Munich, joining 2. Bundesliga side SpVgg Unterhaching in 2005.[4] He spent two years with the club but the 2006–07 season ended in relegation, and Buck left the club, joining Karlsruher SC,[4][5] Buck's debut for Karlsruhe was a goalscoring one; he scored in the last minute of extra time to secure a 2–0 win over TSG Neustrelitz in the first round of the DFB Pokal,[6] having come on as a sub for Tamás Hajnal.[7] His Bundesliga debut came three months later, as a replacement for Bradley Carnell in the last minute of a match with MSV Duisburg,[8] and he ended the season with thirteen league appearances.[4]

Buck only made six league appearances the following season.[4] Shortly after the beginning of the 2009–10 season, he signed for FC Augsburg,[5] for whom he made 24 appearances.[4] In July 2010, Buck signed for another Bavarian 2. Bundesliga club, TSV 1860 Munich,[9] where he would spend the next two seasons, making over 50 appearances.[4]

In 2012, Buck returned to FC Bayern Munich II, then in the fourth tier Regionalliga Bayern.[10] He was named as team captain.[11] After three years with the club, he retired from professional football in 2015.[12]
