The footballers have been twice promoted in recent years and reached the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg (IV) in 2005, playing there as a lower table side.

In 2009 the club qualified for the first time for the first round of the German Cup but was knocked out by VfB Stuttgart after a 1–4 loss, leading 1–0 until the 55th minute.[1]

In 2012–13 the club qualified again for the first round of the German Cup but was knocked out by FSV Frankfurt after a 1–2 loss.[2] The club celebrated its greatest success in 2014 when it won the Regionalliga Südwest and qualified for the promotion round to the 3.
