A Fact

Second place finish in the Regionalliga West in 1970 and success in the subsequent promotion playoff advanced Bielefeld to the Bundesliga for the first time. In its second season in the top flight, the club found itself at the centre of a scandal when it was involved in a scheme to bribe players from other teams, including Offenbach,Hertha Berlin ,Schalke and Koln , in an attempt to keep its place in the Bundesliga. As a result, Arminia was stripped of all its points and demoted to the Regionalliga West 2 .A number of players from various sides were also suspended.
