1. Fußball-Club Nürnberg Verein für Leibesübungen e. V., often called 1. FC Nürnberg or simply Nürnberg, is a German association 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 "Burenhütte" to assemble a side committed to playing football rather than rugby, one of the other new "English" games becoming popular at the time. Today's club offers its members boxing, handball, hockey, rollerblading and ice skating, swimming, skiing, and tennis. After a difficult 2009–10 campaign, they avoided relegation from the first division Bundesliga by beating the third place 2. Bundesliga finisher FC Augsburg in a play-off at the end of the season.
1. FCN have been relegated from the German football league system top tier Bundesliga on seven occasions – tying the record earlier set by Arminia Bielefeld.
