The club was established 14 May 1902 as Fußball Club Germania Durlach. During World War II they were briefly partnered with Fußball Club Phönix Karlsruhe and played from 1943 to 1945 as Kriegspielgemainschaft Karlsruhe. Following the war occupying Allied authorities ordered the dissolution of most organizations, including sports and football clubs. ASV was re-established on 1 June 1946, and in addition to their former membership, included the memberships of VfR Durlach, Turnerschaft Durlach, and TG Durlach. The following year they were joined by Tennisclub Durlach.[1]

Throughout the early existence of the association, the footballers played as an unheralded local side in lower tier competition. ASV fielded competitive sides in the third division Amateurliga Nordbaden in four seasons from 1946 to 1950, earning a second-place finish in 1948, and top four finishes in each of the other seasons. Durlach advanced to the 2. Liga-Süd where they played until 1955 when they were relegated back to Amateurliga play. They struggled through four seasons there until again being demoted. They made a brief two season re-appearance in the Amateurliga Nordbaden (III) in 1965–67.

After promotion to the Verbandsliga Nordbaden in 1988, ASV enjoyed its most recent turn in upper level football in the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg (IV) between 1993 and 1997 and again in the 2005–06 season, where they earned lower table results in five campaigns. In 2007–08, a Verbandsliga championship returned the club to the Oberliga, where it played until 2011, when it was relegated once more. In 2013 it suffered another relegation, now to the Landesliga, but won a league championship there in 2015 and returned to the Verbandsliga.
