Bavaria, Germany. Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz is the capital of the Neumarkt district in the administrative region of the Upper Palatinate, in Bavaria, Germany. With a population of about 40,000, Neumarkt is not just the seat of various projects, and acts as the economic and cultural center of the western Upper Palatinate, but also home of a rich history German Soccer Club and IFX Partner club ASV 1860 Neumarkt.
ASV became a founding member of the tier-four Landesliga Bayern-Mitte in 1963 but lasted for only one season at this level, being relegated to the Bezirksliga. After five years on the fifth level, Neumarkt returned to the Landesliga in 1969 and managed a second-place finish in its first season back, followed by a league championship the year after, which qualified the side for promotion to the Fußball-Bayernliga. At the end of the 2011–12 season the club qualified directly for the newly expanded Bayernliga after finishing seventh in the Landesliga. ASV lasted at this level for two seasons before being relegated back to the Landesliga in 2014. A Landesliga championship in 2015–16 took the club back up to the Bayernliga where the club is performing well nowadays.
