1. FC Nuremberg (German: 1. FC NÃ¼rnberg) is a German football club in Nuremberg, Bavaria. It was founded on 4 May 1900 by a group of eighteen young men who had gathered at the local pub called the "BurenhÃ¼tte" to assemble a side committed to playing football rather than rugby, one of the other new "English" games becoming popular at the time. They play in the FuÃŸball-Bundesliga again after winning the relegation play-offs in 2009.
