1. FFC Frankfurt is a German
women's footballclub based in Frankfurt, Hesseand has a membership of about 430. The team currently plays in the German first division women's Bundesliga. They are the country's most successful women's side with 14 national and international titles to their credit to date. The team captured the UEFA Women's Cupin the 2001-02, 2005-06 and 2007-08 seasons.
A rivalry developed between Frankfurt and former
East Germanwomen's champions 1. FFC Turbine Potsdamearly in the 2000s as that club began its own ascent to the Bundesliga. That rivalry spilled over into the DFB Pokal and the European Cup when Potsdam qualified by taking the national title from Frankfurt and succeeded them as European champions.
Aside from the sporting and east-west rivalry, the two clubs have different team-building philosophies. Frankfurt, in a Western "capitalist" fashion, prefers buy up local and foreign players, while Potsdam, in the Eastern socialist tradition focuses on the development of young players within its own club-system. The defection of
Petra Wimberskyand Karolin Thomasfrom Potsdam to Frankfurt inflamed the rivalry, as the two clubs had abided by an unwritten agreement not to poach each other's players without first consulting the German Football Association.
Due to the lack of hooliganism in the women's game, this rivalry has developed healthy competition within the Bundesliga and has strongly contributed to the success of the women's national team. There is a potential
Old Firm-style problem, however, as these two clubs are currently the wealthiest in the women's game and there is a fear that this may hinder the league's competitiveness if they become too dominant. [http://www.goethe.de/ges/soz/thm/fdb/en2202794.htm]
