The club was founded on 4 February 1899[1] as Fußballverein Werder[2] by a group of 16 vocational high school students who had won a prize of sports equipment.[10] The students took the club's name from the seldom-used regional German word for “river peninsula", which described the riverside field on which they played their first football games.[citation needed]

The tour provides a wealth of fascinating information about the brewery, the art of beer brewing and the Beck`s and Haake-Beck brands.

At the beginning of the 17th century, Bremen continued to play its double role, wielding fiscal and political power within the Prince-Archbishopric, but not allowing the Prince-Archbishopric to rule in the city without its consent.

There were no such problems for Darmstadt though, who thrashed Bremer SV 7-0 to ease into round two, while Andrej Kramaric grabbed a hat-trick as Hoffenheim put six past Egestorf-Langreder.

Costa should have added a fourth for Chelsea ten minutes into the second half when Hazard's enticing pass gave him the chance to fire home, but the striker's shot went wide.

Skripnik, who had been at Bremen for two decades both as a player and a coach, had suffered four straight defeats this season.

Johannsson, 25, returned to the Bremen side in August after 11 months sidelined with a hip injury and made a positive impact, scoring a goal and setting up another in his first three games back before being sent off for allegedly insulting the referee.

Some Werder fans maintain friendly relationships with Rot-Weiß Essen and Hapoel Katamon Jerusalem.

Steady growth after World War I led the club to adopt other sports and, on 19 January 1920, change their name to the current Sportverein Werder Bremen. Football remained their primary interest, so much so that in 1922, they became the first German club to hire a professional coach. The team made regular appearances in year-end NFV qualification round play through the 1920s and on into the early 1930s, but did not enjoy any success.

Since 1924, Werder Bremen's stadium is the Weserstadion. Werder Bremen's coach Viktor Skrypnyk was dismissed in September 2016. Werder Bremen has a rivalry with Hamburger SV, another Bundesliga club in northern Germany, known as the Nordderby (English: North derby).

In April 1914, the club became a department of Allgemeiner Bremer Turnverein 1860 and was briefly known as Sportabteilung Werder des ABTV. However, the relationship was short-lived and the club went its own way again less than two months later.[citation needed]

Bayer Leverkusen were given a scare, but edged to a 2-1 win at fifth-division SC Hauenstein thanks to goals from Javier Hernandez and Karim Bellarabi.

The Bundesliga side fought for an equaliser, but it was Chelsea who bagged a late goal as a Cesc Fabregas pass, helped on by Michy Batshuayi, found substitute Pedro who finished expertly with the final kick of the game. 

And it was Bremen who netted next when Matic's tackle sent Junuzovic to the ground, conceding a penalty which Pizarro calmly slotted into the side netting.

Bremen continued to threaten during the second half, but it was Conte's men who rounded off the result when Pedro fired in at the death.

U.S. international Aron Johannsson believes it will be difficult to return to Werder Bremen's starting XI following his two-match ban.

Overall, Germany has a warm, temperate, wet climate with westerly winds. Extreme fluctuations in temperature are rare. Rain falls throughout the year. Mild winters (2ºC to -6ºC) and moderately hot summers (18ºC to 20ºC) are the norm.

To understand why the Fishcakes eat so fast (and became so rich), we went in search of their work. First, we took a cruise along the Weser. Soon we were amid the hard, flat landscape of commerce. Here were wind farms, futuristic mills, and ships the size of football grounds. For such an ancient community, Bremen – it struck me – produced peculiarly modern things: cornflakes, space stations, lager and rocket parts.

A foul by Theodor Gebre Selassie on Jerome Gondorf inside the penalty area allowed Antonio Colak to put Darmstadt in front in the 19th minute.


The Gunners captain said this week he was open to a return to Germany should Arsenal decide against renewing his contract, and his first club, second-tier Hannover, have expressed an interest in his services.

Bremen has a reputation as a Left-wing city. This left wing atmosphere largely stems from a transition from an industrial economy to a service economy.[25] In elections for the Stadtbürgerschaft, the Social Democratic Party has dominated for decades. The Greens have also been very successful in city elections. The state of Bremen, which consists of the city, is governed by a coalition of the Social Democratic Party and The Greens.

But Bremen pulled one back just after the half-hour mark when the German side were awarded a penalty which Claudio Pizarro coolly converted, after Nemanja Matic brought down Zlatko Junuzovic with a sliding tackle.

There were no other major shocks, but plenty of top-flight teams still struggled elsewhere on Sunday.

Werder Bremen hope to re-sign Per Mertesacker if Arsenal do not extend the defender's contract.

Costa had the chance to add a third for Chelsea when he took a brilliant first touch, opening up his body and finding space to get a shot away, but Bremen's defence were on hand to block the effort. 

Lotte midfielder Andre Dej struck though in the 54th minute, and the home side held on for a famous victory over the six-time winners.
