Damn - I found this online which shows 'roughly' the same numbers.

I'm a member at Schalke and received an email from them yesterday about some slight changes to the membership conditions and in the email they mentioned that there are 160,000 members now at Schalke so yes I'd agree this chart is quite accurate!

Well - I believe that I've finally paid for Year 2 of my Augsburg membership. Thank you @Tommy for being on call, but I got in touch with my bank and was able to just directly transfer the funds. 

Now it's just about waiting for confirmation, but here. we. go!

I was considering a membership for a smaller club.  Dortmund doesn't need my money xD.  I have an application for Freiburg.  Was also considering Osnabrück as my family are originally from there.

Nice. Yeah, I joined Augsburg last year, and so it's nice to re-up with them for year 2. 

I also placed a fairly large order for shirts and kits as you can't really find a site that sells knock offs for cheap, so I went ahead and got a home, away, and 3rd, plus 4 shirts, and some sweatbands that I'll wear for tennis. xD

Nice one! Now I can put my phone back on silent so nobody bothers me. xD

Just curious, how much was the membership for Augsburg?  I did some research and the costs vary significantly per club.

Here's the invoice -

Is there any valid, publicly released data on the teams and their membership numbers? 

It's one of the things I absolutely love about German football, the 50+1 rule, and while you have a few teams that skate around it, it's still a good rule and one that should be admired. 

I did find this chart, but I'm not sure how accurate it is.

Found this from Kicker today - a list of 18 clubs with most members. 8 of them are in the 2. Liga this season.

It's also good to see that the clubs that have been struggling and/or got relegated in recent years could not only hold their membership members, but actually even increase them.

Union membership figures rose most significantly - around 8000 more in two years in 1. Bundesliga.

Union has almost caught Hertha.  Love to see it.

Anyone seen @Eco? I was going to ask him about the membership application and the whole IBAN thing.

Greetings, sir. I have stepped away from the forum while dealing with family things.

What do you want to know good sir. the IBAN is a odd process, but I can hopefully answer any questions you may have.

Glad you could make it back.  Hope everything is going OK with you and your family.  

So when you apply for a membership the club won't take a credit card, which I find weird, but it is what it is.  My question is, what is the IBAN number?  Is it somehow linked or part of your routing/bank account number?

Does this help?

If everything else doesn't work, as your bank for your IBAN, since you got one.:)

I used that link to jump around a bit and it looks like Europe uses the IBAN # system and the US just issues a Routing #, which I do have.  I was asked specifically for an IBAN but I don't think the club knew I wasn't in Deutschland.

I'd just open a Wise account, if I were you. You can open a Euro account and get an IBAN account number for transactions in Europe.

So, with Augsburg, the IBAN is an international bank number.

For Augsburg, they provided me with their account numbers, and I was able to just set up a wire transfer directly into their accoutn with my Mitiglied # .

I was able to convince him to come out of retirement.
