FC Nordstern 1896 München

FC Nordstern 1896 München was a short-lived German association football club in Munich, Bavaria. Both Nordstern and 1. Münchner FC 1896 laid claim to being the oldest football clubs in the city. Alongside FC Bavaria 1899 München, these clubs were notable as founding members of the German Football Association (Deutscher Fußball Bund) at Leipzig in 1900.

Established by students in 1896, the club's only known recorded match was a lopsided 0:15 loss to newly formed Bayern Munich on 15 April 1900. Nordstern folded in February 1902.
