Traditional Munich 1860 football shirt

Turn- und Sportverein München von 1860 was originally founded as sports and gymnastics association, forming a football division in 1899. The club was a founder member of the German Bundesliga in 1963. Home matches are played at the Allianz Arena (capacity: 69,901), which they share with city rivals Bayern Munich. TSV co-owned the facility with Bayern Munich until 2006, but sold its 50% share that year in order to resolve a serious financial crisis. Major honours include 1 Bundesliga title and 2 German Cups.

For some good background to TSV 1860's recent history see Better Dead Than Red - an article from 2002 at When Saturday Comes magazine.
