The history of 1.FCN has many chapters. The former years, particularly the 1920s were days of glory, then came a revival in the 1960s but since then, apart from one glorious night in May 2007, true success has been elusive. The post-60s era was one of debt, relegation, accusation and mis-management. There were many false dawns and it was only the winning of the DFB Pokal (the German FA Cup) which allowed the sun to shine on the club, the high point in an era marked by the arrival of Hans Meyer in Nuremberg.
