In sports there are always teams and players standing in a crisis, it seems that the next crisis is always imminent. In this paper we want to analyze a current crisis of the German football and thereby compare the situation with the organizational ecocycle model. This model will describe the situation of Kaiserslautern and shows that the model can describe the complete crisis of the team. Not only is the crisis of Kaiserslautern typical for the football setting, it is also comparable to the business world. We can learn from the crisis and the renewal of Kaiserslautern, where teams and companies can struggle intensively and throughout that extend the crisis and shorten the renewal.
