SGS Essen are a German association football club based in Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia. The team was founded in 2000 as a merger of VfB Borbeck and SC Grün-Weiß Schönebeck. The club is renowned for the women's football team, which plays in the Bundesliga.


On 21 March 1973 SC Grün-Weiß Schönebeck established its women's section. After playing for several years in lower leagues, Schönebeck was promoted to the Verbandsliga (III) in 1992. They played in this league until 1999 with an intermezzo in 1996–97, when the club participated for a year in the Regionalliga (II). The promotion to the Regionalliga in 1999 was followed by five years of football in that league until Schönebeck gained promotion to the Bundesliga in 2004.

In the 2002–03 season the club had struggled in the Regionalliga and the aim for the 2003–04 season was to qualify for the 2. Bundesliga, starting in the next season. They won their league though and after a successful qualification round gained promotion to the highest league in German women's football. Since Schönebeck has established itself in the Bundesliga, generally achieving mid-table results. The best result was a 5th place in 2008–09. The team has reached the German cup semi-finals in 2007 and 2010.

The club's biggest success came by reaching the cup final of the 2013–14 DFB-Pokal (women).
