The SV Spielberg is a German football club from the suburb of Spielberg, Karlsbad, Baden-Württemberg.

In 2009, the club had its most successful season ever, earning promotion to the tier-five Oberliga Baden-Württemberg.



The club was formed in 1920.[1] For the first forty years of the club's history, it remained a local amateur side. From 1933 to 1945, the club, with its working class background, was outlawed.[2]

In 1959, the SVS won a championship in the local A-Klasse, but it took until 1970 for the side to reach the tier-four 2nd Amateurliga Mittelbaden-Group 2.[1] Spielberg showed some descend performances at this level in the following season, finishing fifth in its first year.[3]

In 1975, the club made its first, and so far only, participation in the German Cup. In a first round game at fellow amateur side Eintracht Höhr-Grenzhausen, the club lost 4-3. The team also had a good league season, finishing third in the 2nd Amateurliga.[4] The following season, the club was moved to Group 2 of the league and fell only one point short of promotion, coming second.[5] This performance was however enough to qualify for the new Landesligas (English: State league) which replaced the 2nd Amateurligas at this level. Instead of five 2nd Amateurligas, North Baden now had three Landesligas.

Spielberg had another good season in the Group 3 of this league in 1978-79, finishing third,[6] followed by a second place the year after.[7] After this, the clubs performances notably declined and it was relegated in 1983 after finishing last in its league.[8] In the 1980s, the clubs youth program produced a future German international, Jens Nowotny.

By 1987, the SVS managed to return to the Landesliga and managed to earn promotion for the first time to the Verbandsliga Nordbaden in 1994.

The club remained a member of this league for the next fifteen seasons, with two third places in 1999 and 2005 as the highlights. It managed to finish in the upper half of the table every season except 2001 and 2002 when it came twelfth in both years.[1]

In the 2008-09 season, a championship in the Verbandsliga earned the club promotion to the highest league in the state of Baden-Württemberg, the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg, for the first time.
