2007 - 2008
Bundesliga, here we come!
With a view to the club’s ambitious development, TSG now focuses its attention on the infrastructure, particularly the stadium capacity. Dietmar Hopp chooses to build a new 30,000 capacity stadium on the A6. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim also begin work on a brand new training and business complex in Zuzenhausen. By autumn 2009, the club will open one of the most modern facilities in Germany, covering 7,000 square metres of land. There are also sporting developments at the club – the arrival of Carlos Eduardo sees him become the most expensive signing in 2. Bundesliga history. With the second youngest team in the Bundesliga, behind Kaiserslautern, TSG enjoy another successful season. After a run of seven straight wins after Christmas, the team find themselves in an automatic promotion spot. Needing a win on the final day of the season, TSG romp to a 5-0 victory against Greuther Fürth to seal promotion to the Bundesliga. 10,000 fans flock to the town hall for the end of season party, as they celebrate the club’s success together with their heroes.
