TSV Munchen athletics club founded in Munich, Bavaria
The German soccer club now known as TSV Munchen 1860 was founded as a gymnastics and athletic club in the working class southern section of the city. The club sponsored many types of sports but in 1899 created an association football team that eventually came to dominate the organization. (By John Osborne)
