FV, the club was known to the public, enjoying early success by winning a local tournament. After all these years, FV ventured to take part in qualifying for the national championship organized by Norddeutscher Fußball Verband (NFV) – one of the seven largest regional legal after the turn of the century. FV failed.
But FV makes its own history, by becoming the first club to sell tickets to people who want to watch the game. They fenced playground field. From the ticket sales that FV finance itself.
After World War I, sports clubs adopt another, and on January 19, 1920 FV renamed Sportverein Werder Bremen. Football is still a priority, and two years later SV Werder Bremen became the first club to bring in professional trainers.
