Darmstadt has a messy financial history as a club, but made a recent resurgence to return to top-flight football after a 33-year absence. They play in the Merck Stadion, one of the oldest grounds in the Bundesliga.
Insolvency threatened the club's existence in 2008, but the club has since risen from its financial problems to find their way back to the Bundesliga. That included two consecutive promotions in 2013/14 and 2014/15, and the club is trying to make their Bundesliga dream last.
