FC Erzgebirge Aue Tickets
FC Erzgebirge Aue – a small football club with a big heart
FC Erzgebirge Aue is a former East German professional football side that has played most of its career since reunification in the third division of the Bundesliga. It is a very small club, located in Aue-Bad Schlema in Saxony. It's a wonderful place to watch football with a very proud and loyal supporters club, as they are one of the teams with the smallest support bases in Germany to have played the game at first class level.

Champions of East German football
FC Erzgebirge Aue began life right after the Second World War and was immediately a fixture in the East German DDR-Oberliga. The team went through a few name-changes up until the early 1950s, which was something of a heyday for the club, as it rose through the tiers to become national champion runners-up in 1953. This was remedied a few years later when the team won the East German Cup, going on to win three national league titles in a row in the following years. This also led to appearances in the European Champions Cup, although the team was always denied glory in this arena, losing to FC Dnipro in the first round on their first attempt, and making the second round the next time they qualified. Even though it has a small player base, being based in such a small town, the club has always enjoyed vigorous local rivalries with two other teams from the same region: FSV Zwickau and Chemnitzer FC. Look out for these matches in particular when you book your FC Erzgebirge Aue tickets. The club's home games are played at Erzgebirgsstadion.
Advancing through unified Germany's football ranks
FC Erzgebirge Aue were one of the original teams to play in the inaugural season of the 3. Bundesliga, as by then, the team had become part of the unified German football league structure. They struggled for a few years as the general standard was a little stiffer than the competition they were used to, but they made their way up to the 2. Bundesliga in 2003, remaining there for a few years. Unfortunately, they slipped down a league once more in 2008. They did have more success in the German national cup competitions, however, and have regularly played in the DFB Pokal, again without making the final rounds. But this has scarcely mattered to the club's fans – as you'll discover when you get FC Erzgebirge Aue tickets on StubHub, this is a club that plays its football in the highest of spirits, win or lose.
