The SpVgg Hankofen-Hailing is a German association football club from the villages of Hankofen and Hailing in the municipality of Leiblfing, Bavaria.

The club's greatest success came in 2012 when it qualified for the new southern division of the expanded Bayernliga, the fifth tier of the German football league system.


For most of its history the club has been a nondescript amateur side in local Bavarian football. The club's rise began in 1992 when it was promoted to the Kreisklasse Dingolfing in which it finished runners-up in 1993 and 1994 before winning promotion to the Bezirksliga in 1995.[1]

Thirty years after its formation, the club rose to the highest league in Lower Bavaria, the Bezirksoberliga Niederbayern, for the first time in 1998 on the strength of a Bezirksliga Niederbayern-West title[2] and played at that level for the next three seasons. SpVgg immediately became a strong side at this level, finishing sixth in its first season and fourth in its second and won the league in its third.[3] The latter allowed the club to move up to the Landesliga Bayern-Mitte, where it would play for the next five seasons. After a difficult first year, the club finished in the upper half of the table for the second, third and fourth seasons there but was relegated in 2006 after finishing 15th.[4]

SpVgg bounced back immediately, winning the Bezirksoberliga again and returning to the Landesliga. It was unable to establish itself however, finished 16th, and was relegated again.[4] Two more seasons in the Bezirksoberliga followed before the club won a third league title there and moved up to the Landesliga again. This third title also equaled SpVgg GW Deggendorf's record of three titles in the Bezirksoberliga Niederbayern, which no other club achieved until the league was disbanded in 2012.[3]

Back in the Landesliga SpVgg performed much better as in the past, coming fourth in its first year there. The second season, the last of the league in its current format, saw a sixth-place finish and allowed the club to move up to the southern division of the newly expanded Bayernliga.[4]

In its first Bayernliga season, the club came tenth, followed by a seventh place in 2013–14 and a sixth place the year after.[5]
