Borussia Mönchengladbach Tryouts & Club Guide: History, Stadium, Players, and More!
Hi, I’m Carlos! A coach, sports enthusiast, and the founder of FCScout.com.
I fell in love with the game at a very young age like many of you. I’ve been following and playing soccer for many years.
Throughout my career, I always enjoyed helping soccer players chase their dreams, which is why I started this website. I wanted to reach a larger audience outside of my local area and fcscout.com was born.
This website is a platform I will be using to update club pages on any tryouts, stadiums, players, tech, and more from clubs around the world. I also create free recruitment profiles for players looking to have that extra competitive edge when reaching out to clubs.
That’s it. That’s my pitch for you to stick around (or browse the site as you please).
This is already too much text for a “see more” drop-down button thing. If you want to reach out to me, head on over to my contact page 🙂

Borussia Mönchengladbach History
The name Borussia Monchengladbach was taken from a Latinized form of Prussia, which was a common name for German clubs in the territory that was formerly known as the Kingdom of Prussia. The club was established in the year 1900. The club entered the Bundesliga in 1965 and enjoyed the majority of its success in the 1970s.
Led by Hennes Weisweiler and then Udo Lattek, they won five league championships with their team known as Die Fohlen (The Colts). This nickname was given to the group because they were young and played in a style that was both fast and aggressive. Additionally, during this time period, Monchengladbach was victorious in two UEFA Cup competitions and advanced to the final of the European Cup in 1977.
Before moving to Borussia-Park in 2004, Borussia Monchengladbach had been playing in the Bokelbergstadion, which had been their home stadium all the way back to 1919. With almost 75,000 members, Borussia Monchengladbach is the fifth largest club in Germany based on membership.
This ranking is based on the club’s size. The club’s most significant adversary is FC Koln, with whom they compete head-to-head in the Rheinland Derby. The likes of Borussia Dortmund, Fortuna Düsseldorf, and Bayer Leverkusen are some of their secondary competitors.
Borussia-Park is a football stadium located in Monchengladbach, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is the home stadium of the Bundesliga team Borussia Monchengladbach and was named after the Borussia family. In July of 2004, it took the place of the smaller Bokelbergstadion, which had fallen out of compliance with both contemporary safety norms and international criteria.
Because of the high level of interest, Borussia-Park has a total capacity of 54,057 people, 16,145 of which are standing spaces on the terraces. When the stadium is used for international competitions, its terraces are transformed into temporary seating, bringing the total number of available seats down to 46,249.
