SV Saar 05 Saarbrücken is a German sports association based in Saarbrücken, Saarland. The largest club in the state, it is best known for its athletics department, and also fields an association football team.


The club was founded as Fussball Klub Saarbrücken on 8 May 1905 and within three months was re-christened Sport-Club Saar 05 Saarbrücken. From 1919, the club played in the Kreisliga Saar, where it took out a championship in 1920, thereby advancing to the Southern German championship where it got knocked out in the group stage. In October 1933 SC joined Spielverein 05 Saarbrücken, which was itself the product of the 1919 union of 1. FC Germania 1905 and SpVgg 1906, to become SV Saar 05 Saarbrücken. The club made a single season appearance in the first division Gauliga Südwest in 1934–35 and was immediately relegated after a last place finish. SV merged with Deutscher SC in 1939 to become Deutscher SV Saar 05.

After World War II occupying Allied authorities ordered the dissolution of all organizations in Germany, including sports and football associations. In late 1945 the club was re-established as SV Saarbrücken, becoming SV Saar Saarbrücken in 1949, and SV Saar 05 Saarbrücken in 1951.

In 1995 and 2001 the club won the Verbandsliga Saarland, thereby gaining promotion to the Oberliga Südwest. After this, the club went into decline.

In August 2007, the youth department formed a new club, the SV Saar 05 Jugendfußball, due to internal strife in the club.

The 2007–08 season was an absolute low point in the clubs long history. The coach, Roland Hippchen, used 18 non-registered players during the season and found himself barred from coaching by the Saar FA. He continued to coach the club nevertheless and upon this, the club too was eventually barred from competing in the Kreisliga A Halberg. With a new team under a new coach, Timon Seibert, the club entered the Kreisliga B Saarbrücken for 2008–09, hoping to improve its fortunes, under the guidance of the SV Saar 05 Jugendfußball,[1] the Kreisliga B being the lowest tier in Saarland football.

Saar 05 began climbing the ranks again quickly to the point where the club played in the states highest football league for two seasons, now the Saarlandliga, winning a league championship in 2014 and earning promotion to the Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar.
