How An Austrian Team Became German Champions

  • Publisert Måned siden

    HITC Sevens

    Runtime: 20:17

    In 1941, 34-time Austrian champions Rapid Wien - anglicised as Austria Vienna - beat Schalke to join the likes of Hertha Berlin and Bayern Munich in the list of champions of German football.
    In this short documentary, HITC Sevens takes a look at the historical context both on and off the pitch, which led to a team from Austria winning the most prestigious football / soccer trophy in Germany.

No one in their right mind would name Schalke as a German football champion - they are literally known for not having won any league title for the last 60 or so years...

Historical Fun Fact: Because the DFB was open to ALL german football clubs, foreign clubs competing for the german championship in the early years were a thing, as long as they were "german". The first runner up for the german championship in 1903 was the Deutsche Fußball-Club Prag (German Football-Club Prague). The club was founded by german jews who lived in Prague, which was a part of Austria-Hungary, back then.

Two things that I would like to note, Ostmark was just a revival of its old name (as the Eastern March of the Holy Roman Empire), and Austria was rather specifically not unified with Germany in the German Empire era- largely due to the Austrian Empire holding non-German lands prior to the unification of Germany.
