Karlsruher Sport-Club (SC as they’re more commonly known) is a German sports club whose football team are the most prominent feature. The club was formed originally as Karlsruher Fussball Club Phönix, formed on 6 June 1894 by dissatisfied members of the gymnastics club Karlsruher Turngemeinde.
Karlsruher continued to put in strong Bundesliga performances, which led to two more UEFA Cup runs, reaching the third round both in the 1996–97 and 1997–98 seasons. They also reached the DFB-Pokal Final in 1996, but lost the showpiece in Berlin 1-0 to 1. FC Kaiserslautern.
