In the last game of the 2nd Bundesliga season, 1. FC Nürnberg made promotion to the Bundesliga perfect. In front of 2,500 enthusiastic fans, they defeated the TSG Hoffenheim II team 3-0 and thus secured second place in the promotion table alongside RB Leipzig.
The women from Nuremberg made a dominant appearance from the start. Marina Scholz opened the scoring in the 18th minute and increased it to 2-0 with her second goal in the 62nd minute. This put her team on the road to victory. In the 72nd minute, Nadja Burkard scored the final point after a quick counterattack and made it 3-0.
Promotion to the Bundesliga is a historic moment for the women’s club, as they have only played top-flight in the 1999/2000 season. They have been active in the 2nd women’s Bundesliga since 2021 and have now been able to celebrate promotion thanks to continuous development.
