TSV Buchbach is a German association football club from the village of Buchbach, Bavaria. The team is part of a larger sports club that also has departments for curling, gymnastics, skiing, and tennis. The footballers are distinguished as holders of the German record for the longest undefeated streak, a string of 75 matches from 19 August 1995 to 23 May 1998.
TSV was founded in 1913 as a gymnastics club. Football was soon introduced to the club by students who brought the game back from Munich. A football department was established within the association on 11 January 1930.
Following World War II, Buchbach played in local A-Class competition until slipping to B-Class play in 1960, where they would remain until returning to A ball in 1980. In the mid-1990s, with solid sponsorship in place, they began their record making unbeaten run. They advanced to play in the Landesliga Süd (V) in 2004 and a title win there in 2008 saw TSV promoted to the Bayernliga (V).

- With the introduction of the Bezirksoberligas in 1988 as the new fifth tier, below the Landesligas, all leagues below dropped one tier. With the introduction of the Regionalligas in 1994 and the 3. Liga in 2008 as the new third tier, below the 2. Bundesliga, all leagues below dropped one tier. With the establishment of the Regionalliga Bayern as the new fourth tier in Bavaria in 2012 the Bayernliga was split into a northern and a southern division, the number of Landesligas expanded from three to five and the Bezirksoberligas abolished. All leagues from the Bezirksligas onwards were elevated one tier.
Unbeaten record 1995 – 1998
Following a 1–5 defeat on 14 June 1995 to FC Grünthal, which meant relegation to the C-Klasse, then the lowest league in Bavaria, for the TSV, the club started its record-breaking run of 75 unbeaten league games. In the 1995–96 season, it played 26 games in the C-Klasse Inn/Salzach – Group 4, coming first with 20 wins and six draws and earning promotion back to the B-Klasse.
The following season, the club again earned a league championship, now in the B-Klasse Inn/Salzach Group 3. In 26 games it archived 18 wins and 8 draws. In 1997–98, the club came very close to a perfect season once more. Having again not lost in the first 23 of 26 season matches, on 24 Mai 1998 the team lost at home to SV Waldhausen, 1–3, ending its unbeaten run. Nevertheless, promotion was once more archived.
