History

Original logo

Esbjerg forenede Boldklubber was officially established in 1924 as a merger between Esbjerg Boldklub af 1898 (E.B. 98) and Esbjerg Amatørklub af 1911 (EAK) after 12 years of competition between the two clubs.[1] The new club was driven by ambition for something bigger, which already produced results the day after when the club's best start-up team defeated Kolding IF with 7-0.[2]

The club's golden years were in the first half of the 1960s with the Austrian coach Rudi Strittich throughout most of the decade.[3][4] The club won the Danish Championship in 1961, 1962, 1963 and 1965 and won the DBU Cup in 1964.[5] In the 2010-11 Danish Superliga season EfB finished 12th and was relegated to the Danish 1st Division for the first time since the 1999-00 season.[6]
