The Aachener Turn- und Sportverein Alemannia 1900 (known as Alemannia Aachen) is a football club which plays in Germany's Regionalliga. The club is based in Aachen. The name Alemannia should stress being from the west of Germany. The club was founded in 1900 by students who played football.


Alemannia Aachen used to play at the Old Tivoli stadium which had a capacity of 21,632 spectators (3,632 seats). It was built in 1908 and was renovated several times. The club played its 2004 UEFA Cup matches, however, in Cologne's RheinEnergieStadion. In August 2009 the new stadium, the New Tivoli was opened, which has a capacity of 32,960 spectators (11,681 in standing areas).


Alemannia has the strange nickname of the "Potato Beetles". This is because of their striped yellow-black jerseys, which make them look like the beetles.
