After many years of ups and downs in soccer the London German-Canadian Football Club joined the National Soccer League before the start of the 1969 season.
On Monday May 19, 1969 the German-Canadian FC played against touring West German club Eisenbahner Sportverein Ingolstadt-Ringsee. The German club had played in the Regionalliga Süd in the 1968-69 season, this was the third level of soccer in what was then known as West Germany. Just before the 1970 and in the following years many German amateur teams undertook tours of North America. This was Ingolstadts third game on their seven-game Canadian tour.
The match took place at the iconic Cove Road Field in London, Ontario, in front of a crowd 1,200 soccer fans of which 801 paid for the privilege.
GCFC scored the first goal after three minutes of play through Carlos Izakovits on an assist from Charlie Papp, and the teams left the field at half time with the home team leading 1-0.
28 minutes into the second half Charlie Papp added another goal for the home team. Five minutes before the end Joe Daciek made it 3-0.
Wolfgang Schroeter and Hans Valkenier scored one goals each right before the end of the match to secure a 5-0 win for the London German-Canadians.
