The club came to fame when Bernhard Kempa and his brothers moved from Silesia to Göppingen in 1948 and started playing for the club. First as a player and later as coach, he led the club to most of its titles.[1] Since 1972 – one year after Kempa left the club – Göppingen has not won the Championship again and spent the 1990s in the 2nd division. However in 2001, they were promoted to the Handball Bundesliga again.
