They made regular appearances in the German championship rounds, emerging as national champions in and , finishing as runner-up in , and winning two DFB-Pokal titles in and The team which won four titles in eight years was led by Robert Schlienz who had lost his left arm in a car crash.
As an amateur organisation, and due to proverbial Swabian austerity, the club hesitated to spend money, and some players continued to work in an everyday job.
Throughout the balance of the decade and until the mids, the club would generally earn mid-table results. One of the few stars of the time was Gilbert Gress from Strasbourg.
In , the team qualified for the UEFA Cup for the first time and advanced to the semi-finals of the tournament where they were eliminated by eventual winners Feyenoord 1—2, 2—2.
VfB Stuttgart was in crisis in the mids, having missed new trends in football such as club sponsorship. Attempts to catch up with new levels of professionalism by spending money failed.
Towards the end of the —75 season , with the team in imminent danger of being relegated to Second Bundesliga , local politician Gerhard Mayer-Vorfelder was elected as new president.
However, a draw in the final game of the season meant that VfB would be ranked 16th and lose its Bundesliga status.
The first season in second league, considered the worst in its history, ended with VfB being ranked 11th, having even lost a home game against local rival SSV Reutlingen in front of just 1, spectators.
The young team was popular for offensive and high-scoring play, but suffered from lack of experience. At the end of —78 , VfB was ranked fourth, but the average attendance of over 53, set the league record until the s.
In —92 , Stuttgart clinched its fourth title, in one of the closest races in Bundesliga history, finishing ahead of Borussia Dortmund on goal difference.
Internationally, they had been eliminated from UEFA Cup play that season —92 after losing their second round match to Spanish side Osasuna 2—3.
New president Manfred Haas had to renegotiate expensive contracts with players who seldom appeared on the field anyway. As in , when Mayer-Vorfelder had taken over, the team had to be rebuilt by relying on talents from the youth teams.
Coach Ralf Rangnick had started a restructuring of the team that won the Intertoto Cup, but the resulting extra strain of the UEFA Cup participation ended in narrowly escaping from relegation in by clinching the 15th spot in the league table.
Rangnick was replaced by Felix Magath. In July , Erwin Staudt became the new president of the club. VfB qualified for their second Champions League appearance for —04 , beating Manchester United and Rangers once and Panathinaikos twice to advance from the group stage as runners-up to Manchester United.
They were then matched against Chelsea in the round of 16 , falling 0—1 and 0—0 over two legs. Stuttgart continued to play as one of the top teams in the country, earning fourth and fifth place Bundesliga finishes in —04 and —05 respectively, and again taking part in the UEFA Cup , but without great success.
In addition, coach Magath and several players left for another clubs: Halfway through the disappointing —06 season , Giovanni Trapattoni was sacked and replaced by Armin Veh.
The new coach was designated as a stop-gap due to having resigned from Hansa Rostock in to focus on his family and having no football job since , save for coaching his home team FC Augsburg for one season.
Supported by new manager Horst Heldt , Veh could establish himself and his concept of focusing on promising inexpensive players rather than established stars.
Team captain, Zvonimir Soldo , retired, and other veterans left the team that slipped to ninth place and did not qualify for European competition for the first time in four years.
Despite early-season losses and ensuing criticism in —07 , including a 3—0 loss at home to 1. Stuttgart established themselves among the top five and delivered a strong challenge for the Bundesliga title by winning their final eight games.
In the penultimate week on 12 May , Stuttgart beat VfL Bochum 3—2 away from home, taking the Bundesliga lead from Schalke 04 and at minimum securing a spot in the —08 Champions League.
After trailing 0—1 in the final match of the season against Energie Cottbus , Stuttgart came back to win 2—1 and claim their first Bundesliga title in 15 years.
In addition, VfB had their first ever chance to win the double as they also reached the final of the German Cup for the first time since their victory there ten years former.
Their opponents in the cup final in Berlin were 1. It ended in a 2—1 defeat. The second match at home against Barcelona was likewise lost, 0—2, as well as the third match, against Lyon at home, with the visitors coming out 2—0 winners from two second-half strikes.
Five defeats and just one win over Rangers meant the early exit on the European stage. In the league, they managed to finish in sixth place after a poor start.
The —09 season , like the one before it, got off to a bad start. After exiting the German Cup after a 1—5 thrashing from Bayern Munich in January, prospects improved considerably and the team ended third in the table, with second place just being missed after a loss to Bayern on the last matchday.
That meant the chance of making the Champions League again. VfB were then drawn into Group G against Spanish side Sevilla , Scottish champions Rangers, against whom they had also been drawn against in their previous two Champions League Group stage appearances, and Romanian champions Unirea Urziceni.
With two wins one each against Rangers and Unirea , three draws one each against all opponents and a loss to Sevilla they managed second spot in the group, thus qualifying for the round of the last 16, where they had to face title holders Barcelona in late winter.
That defeat came in the course of a disappointing first half of the —10 Bundesliga. As a consequence of slipping to 16th spot in December, young coach Markus Babbel was fired after matchday 15 and replaced by the more experienced Swiss Christian Gross.
Under his tenure, VfB improved their situation domestically as well as internationally before the winter break.
In the later half of the season, the team — as in the —09 season — had a fantastic, almost unbroken, winning streak.
As the best team of that second return round of the Bundesliga, the Swabians under Gross climbed into the upper half of the table and, after a sensational rally, eventually managed to secure European football for the following season by qualifying for the Europa League.
The —11 season was a mediocre one—after again spending the first half of the season almost always in the relegation zone 17th and 18th spot , with Christian Gross being fired and interim coach Jens Keller taking over for the rest of the first leg, Bruno Labbadia was hired as new coach in January and managed to save VfB from relegation.
Eventually, the team finished 12th after a decent second-half performance. In the following —12 season, they managed to constantly climb up the table; this was especially thanks to a long unbeaten streak in the spring.
