Catch a Bundesliga game with The Zebras, MSV Duisburg
MSV Duisburg has had a bit of a hard luck story when it comes to the first division of the Bundesliga, but that hasn't deterred them from attracting a loyal fan following who support their beloved blue-striped Zebras through thick and thin. So when you buy or sell MSV Duisburg tickets on StubHub, you're promised high-quality football no matter what the team's current fortunes are.
One of the elevator teams of the Bundesliga
MSV Duisburg has earned itself a reputation as what German football fans call an "elevator" team, due to the number of times it has gone up and down the divisions of the Bundesliga. It was one of the founding teams of the league in 1963, having won plenty of local and regional championships in the prior 60-odd years of their existence. Somewhat tragically, this was to prove their most successful outing in the first division for the rest of their history, when they ended up in second place in the inaugural Bundesliga season, narrowly missing out on the top honours, which went to 1. FC Köln. While this may have been their best season, they played in the first division for almost twenty years, before beginning the rollercoaster performance that would earn them their nickname. Since then, the team has steadfastly focused on regaining promotion each time they've been relegated, while at the same time vying for honours in Germany's national cup competition, DFB Pokal. They've never lifted the trophy, but that hasn't ever put a dampener on the sales of MSV Duisburg tickets – hope never dies among their fans.
Playing hard for the DFB Pokal
It's often been a case of agonising extremes for MSV Duisburg, determinedly playing themselves through to the late stages of cup competitions, only to have their progress brutally halted by other teams helping themselves to feasts of goals. This happened for the first time in the 2008 DFB Pokal competition, where a heavy 0-5 defeat at the hands of FC Augsburg effectively put paid to the career of the team's coach at the time, veteran manager Peter Neururer. The same thing happened a few years later on the team's fourth attempt at winning a cup final, when they came unstuck against FC Schalke04 with the same score. The character of the team has never been in question, however, and MSV Duisburg tickets remain prized among the city's football fans, whether their team is playing at the top level or spending what seems like mandatory time in the second and even third divisions. Keep a lookout for them on StubHub during the German football season.
