A Fact

Rot-Weiss Oberhausen has seen three of its players capped for Germany.
The club's 1970-71 Bundesliga season was distinguished by the performance of Lothar Kobluhn, who won the league scoring title with 24 goals - 12 of those coming in the last 8 games of the season to save Rot-Weiss from relegation by just one goal. The team was embroiled in the Bundesliga scandal of 1971 and as a result Kobluhn was not awarded the Torjägerkanone trophy as top-scorer until October 2007, 36 years after his achievement.
In 1999, Oberhausen played a DFB-Pokal (Geman Cup) semifinal in Gelsenkirchen against Bayern München in front of 45,000 spectators, dropping a 1:3 decision. On their way to their semifinal appearance they beat Borussia Mönchengladbach and Hamburger SV.From Wikipedia
