FC Anker Wismar is a German association football club based in Wismar, Germany, currently playing in the NOFV-Oberliga Nord.


The club's origins date back to 1904 when FC Elite Wismar were established. The following year, the club was renamed to Wismarer FC 1905. From 1909 the club was known as Germania Wismar and during the World War II, TSV Wismar played in the Gauliga Nordmark. After the war, the club was renamed no less than four more times (SG Wismar Süd, ZSG Anker Wismar, BSG Anker Wismar and BSG Motor Wismar) before settling on the name TSG Wismar under which they played in the DDR-Liga (prior to German reunification) up until 1997 when the club was finally renamed FC Anker Wismar and as such they have become champions of the Verbandsliga Mecklenburg-Vorpommern three times – in 2000, 2004 and 2010.
