The 1970s was a decade of highs and lows for VfB Stuttgart as the Swabian club?s fortunes swung from high-placed Bundesliga finishes and European football to a punishing relegation and dramatic fall off in attendances.

Stuttgart was a club that historically managed consistently respectable League finishes despite modest spending and a reluctance to commit to a full time playing squad. To qualify for the UEFA Cup at the end of the 1972-73 season was a considerable success and Stuttgart advanced all the way to the semi-finals of the competition the following season. Fortunes slumped however with an unexpected relegation in 1975.

The 1975-76 season brought a new low with an 11th placed finish in the 2.Bundesliga and match crowds collapsing to just a few thousand fans, but the arrival in 1976 of a new coach in Jurgen Sundermann from Servette Geneva brought a turnaround in style and fortune.

Future West German internationals Karlheinz Forster and Hansi Muller were at the heart of a new and highly attack-minded team and the prolific Ottmar Hitzfeld scored the goals that took Stuttgart back to the Bundesliga in 1977. By the end of the decade the club was back in European football to complete the decade´s circle.
