Viborg FC History
Viborg Football Club was established in 1896, and at the time, in addition to football, they competed in a variety of other sports as well. These other activities included gymnastics, cricket, field hockey, boxing, athletics, skiing, weight-lifting, and wrestling.
The first significant accomplishment for the club in the realm of athletics came in 1924, when Viborg FF won the championship in Mesterraekken (The Champion Division), which at the time was Jutland’s most prestigious regional division. A significant championship victory at a period when, among other clubs in Jutland, AGF were among the most powerful.
After winning the championship, Viborg fell out of the picture a little bit, but never to the extent that the club was ever completely absent from the landscape of Danish football. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to qualify for the national competitions, the club finally achieved success in 1959 and was promoted to the fourth division of the national championships for the first time. This was a huge relief for the club. Erik Bundgaard, who played 421 times for VFF and holds the club record for most games played, was one of the players who participated in the promotion.
Since 1959, Viborg has not been demoted to a tournament that is ranked lower than the national competitions, with the exception of a handful of seasons at the beginning of the 1970s. Despite the fact that Viborg have always played in the top league in the country, throughout the course of the last few years the club has been bouncing back and forth between the top two leagues in the country.
The club’s greatest accomplishments came in the 1999–2000 season, when they came so close to winning the Superliga bronze medals but fell short by the narrowest of margins. In its place, the team was honored for their victory in the Danish Cup, also known as the DONG Cup. They followed that up by winning the Danish Super Cup after prevailing in a penalty shootout against the defending champions, Herflge Boldklub.
As a result of Viborg’s first-place finish in the 2021 season of the Danish 1st Division, the club was awarded promotion to the top division.
