The TSF Ditzingen is a German association football club from the city of Ditzingen, Baden-Württemberg.

History[edit]

The club was formed on 2 July 1893 under the name of TV Ditzingen.[1] However, it did not have a football department until 1920.[2] The club changed its name in 1919 to TSVgg Ditzingen after a merger.

The club existed for most of its life as an undistinguished amateur club, lingering in the lower divisions of Württemberg football. The club fluctuated between Kreisklass A and Kreisklasse B in those years, the local fifth and sixth division. Only in 1950 could it briefly gain entry to the tier-four 2nd Amateurliga.

It began its rise to prominence in the mid-1980s when a couple of quick promotions took the TSF from the tier-eight Kreisliga B to the tier-three Amateuroberliga Baden-Württemberg in 1991. One of the players in this team was Fredi Bobic, who later played for Germany internationally.[3] Bobic was the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg top-scorer in 1991–92, playing for the TSF, with 19 goals.[4]

In 1993, the club managed to win the Württemberg Cup, beating SV Böblingen 3–2 in the final. This allowed the TSF to take part in the DFB Cup 1993-94, where it lost to Hansa Rostock 0–2 in the second round.[5]

In three seasons in the Oberliga, the club did well enough to qualify for the new Regionalliga Süd, which was formed in 1994. Initially, in this new league, Ditzingen performed well, too, finishing 6th and 5th in its first two seasons. In the 1994–95 season, Sean Dundee scored 24 goals for the team and came second in the Regionalliga scorer list.[6]

From 1996, the club declined however, having to struggle against relegation instead. When, in 2000, the number of Regionalligas was reduced from four to two, the TSF failed to make the cut, having finished only 15th in the league.

With the end of the club's "miracle" rise, it was handed down through the Oberliga within two seasons to the Verbandsliga. After 2008, the club went into free fall, suffering three consecutive relegations and ending up in the tier-nine Kreisliga A Enns/Murr in 2011–12. It one promotion back to the Bezirksliga for a season but was relegated back down to the Kreisliga A in 2013 and the Kreisliga B in 2015.
