The History of Borussia Dortmund
In 1909, Dortmund was founded by a few young people, and the reason you might not think of it was that 18 young people at the time were dissatisfied with the treatment of the football team sponsored by the local church. As a relatively small club, Dortmund did not try to achieve anything very good in the early days. In other words, Dortmund in the early days had little ambition. In the mid-'50s, they won the Silver Cup for the first time, winning two consecutive National Championships in 1956 and 1957. In 1963, Dortmund won the German National Championship. In 1965, it won its first DFB-Pokal, and the following year, its first and only Cup Winners' Cup.
Their fortunes changed with the hiring of Ottmar Hitzfeld in 1992. Under Ottmar Hitzfeld, a talented strategist, Dortmund rose to the top of German football. After winning two Bundesliga titles in a row in 1995 and 1996, Dortmund set out to conquer the rest of Europe. In 1997, they advanced to the Champions League final, beating Juventus easily 3-1.After a few miserable seasons, the arrival of Jürgen Klopp in 2008 will put them back on the road to greatness. Under his leadership, Dortmund will prove to be Bayern's only real challenger. In seven years under Jürgen Klopp, Dortmund won two more Bundesliga titles (2011 and 2012) and their third DFB-Pokal (2012).
