The days of VFB Stuttgart winning the Bundesliga with Mario Gomez at the helm are over a decade away and they now find themselves in the second league of German football. This has produced a revolving door of players and managers which really doesn’t help the club. The fact that the 60,000-seater stadium is rarely full isn’t helpful either.
However, a club like Stuttgart won’t be down there for long, and the optimism that comes with winning, as they do do in the Bundesliga 2, means that there are plenty of smiles and cheers on a game day.
VfB Stuttgart was relegated in season 2015/2016 which was a huge disaster for the entire club. Disregarding the bad situation, the fans kept up the good support, even held fan events before the new season and kept up an amazing support throughout tough times. Maybe a reason why the team is on its way of getting promoted again – to a league where they belong, Bundesliga 1. The season still fills up most of the time, another indicator for the great fan support. Therefore, you can definitely expect a very good atmosphere in the stadium of this popular club.
Commando Cannstatt are one of the most respected ultra groups in Germany, if not beyond, and they rule the roost in the standing section. Every home game is turned into a mini-carnival, with humongous flags, drums and constant noise. It’s almost worth going just to watch them. With such passionate support, however, comes an edge and games against other big teams, particularly Frankfurt and Bayern Munich can boil over. The cops tend to have everything under control though, so don’t worry about it.
