Seeing as the English language part of the official site now uses Nürnberg instead of Nuremberg, shouldn't we be moving the page to reflect that? If not why do we have a page titled 1. FC Köln when the club is more commonly referred to as "Cologne" in English media sources? -- sueisfine 08:18, 26 April 2013 (UTC)
Name should probably be 1st F. C. Nuremberg - to be in line with what goes as standards here. The whole thing is ridiculous anyway. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 23:15, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
http://www.fcn.de/team/spieler/profil/chandler/ indicates that his nationality is German. While he may play for the US due to his dual citizenship, until there's an announcement to that effect, we have to take the sources available to us. That source is the club's site. Unless someone can offer a reference to the contrary, I will continue to revert changes to Chandler's nationality as vandalism. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 01:53, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
I have been a FCN supporter for many years: "Die Legende" and "Der Altmeister" aren't common nicknames. "Die Legende" is only mentioned the club anthem, it is not used otherwise and as a huge fan I would not think of the FCN, if I heard this term (contextless). Furthermore, I would not consider "Der Altmeister" as a nickname. Though, it is sometimes used in newspapers to refer to the FCN, it does not describe Nürnberg in particular. It is used for any club, who has been successful in the past, like Schalke, Hamburger SV, etc. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:52, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
I totally agree, "Legende" and "Altmeister" aren't nicknames. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:25, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.
1. FC Nuremberg → 1. FC Nürnberg – Per Wikipedia:Naming conventions (sports), which says that articles about foreign sports teams should be named according to how the club refers to itself on the English-language section of its official website provided that the name is recognisable to an English-speaking audience and it is in use by a significant proportion (though not necessarily a majority) of the media. Although this was not the case when User:Number 57 posted above, this club now refers to itself as "1. FC Nürnberg" on the English section of its website and a quick Google search proves that this is a name that is used by a significant proportion of the media (on Kingjeff's talk page, I posted at least 10 examples of "Nürnberg" or "Nurnberg", compared to three or four uses of "Nuremberg" at most). This is clearly a recognisable name since it uses the German form of the name of the city of Nuremberg and differs from that name by only one or two letters (and an accent). – PeeJay 22:27, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
Support Per the above - my reason for opposing the move previously has gone. Number57 23:08, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
