Sportverein Hasborn was established in 1920 and spent most of its early history in lower level competition. The club first came to notice in 1964 when it advanced to the 1. Amateurliga Rheinland, then a third tier division. Rot-Weiß Hasborn won promotion to the Oberliga Südwest (IV) in 1981 and has since moved frequently between the fourth tier Oberliga and the Verbandsliga Saar (V). In 1991 and 2007 the team captured the Saarlandpokal (Saarland Cup).
SV's first DFB-Pokal (German Cup) appearance came in 1976 when they made it through the first round before being put out 0:3 by Borussia Mönchengladbach. In their most recent appearance in cup play in 2008 the team was beaten 0:8 in an opening round match versus Hansa Rostock.
After another relegation from the Oberliga in 2011 the club now plays in the Saarlandliga.
