Eintracht Frankfurt are one of the founding members of the Bundesliga, but their last German championship was all the way back in 1959. Now Frankfurt, with their enthusiatic support, look like a club on the way up.
Frankfurt helped form the first Bundesliga, but their single German championship came before the formation of the current top-flight in 1959.
