Verein für Bewegungsspiele Stuttgart 1893 e. V., commonly known as VfB Stuttgart, is a German sports club based in Stuttgart, the capital of Baden-Württemberg. The club's football team has participated in all but two Bundesliga seasons. Verein für Bewegungsspiele Stuttgart was formed on 2 April 1912 through a merger of predecessor sides Stuttgarter FV and Kronen-Club Cannstatt following a meeting in the Concordia hotel in Cannstatt. Each of these clubs was made up of school pupils with middle class roots who learned new sports such as Rugby Union and football from English pioneers. The club has subsequently won several domestic titles.

Stuttgart were the opponents in Chelsea's second appearance in a European final, in the 1997-98 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. With the match having entered the final quarter of play with neither side having found the net, Gianfranco Zola, who had been left out of the starting line-up due to a groin strain, replaced Tore André Flo and broke the deadlock immediately, firing Chelsea ahead following a pass from Dennis Wise. Chelsea held on to win their second European trophy. The clubs met again in the 2003-04 UEFA Champions League first knockout round, an own goal in the first leg in Germany enough to see the Blues through to the quarter-finals.
