U19 German champions
Freiburg’s greatest success as an academy was winning the U19 German championship in 2008. The coach at the time was current first-team boss Christian Streich and the team included current Bundesliga players Oliver Baumann, Nicolas Höfler and Jonathan Schmid.
U19 DFB-Pokal winners
Our U19s have lifted the DFB-Pokal six times in total (2006, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2018). That makes SC Freiburg the most successful club in the competition’s history.
One of our greatest successes as an academy is that we consistently produce players capable of playing for the first team in the Bundesliga. So far in the 2020/21 season, six players from our own academy have featured in the league for the first team: Christian Günter, Nicolas Höfler, Yannik Keitel, Keven Schlotterbeck, Jonathan Schmid and Lino Tempelmann.
Every Freiburg team at the highest level
More evidence of the quality of the Freiburg academy can be seen in the fact that this season all of our youth teams are playing in the highest possible division, just as they were last year.
SC Freiburg came back twice to record a hard-fought 2-2 draw against FC Bayern München on the penultimate Bundesliga matchday. Robert Lewandowski (26’, pen.) and Leroy Sané (53’) scored for the guests, while Manuel Gulde (29’) and Christian Günter (81’) netted for SCF.
