|Full name||Turn- und Sportverein 1923 Grossbardorf e.V.|
|League||Bayernliga Nord (V)|
TSV Großbardorf is a German association football club from the city of Großbardorf, Bavaria. The footballers are part of a 602 member sports club that also has departments for bowling and table tennis.
The club made its first appearance in the Landesliga Bayern-Nord (V) in 1993 where they became a competitive side after the turn of the millennium. Following a second place result and a successful promotion playoff in 2003, Grossbardorf advanced to the Bayernliga (IV) where they played several seasons as a lower table side. They narrowly avoided relegation after a poor 15th place finish in 2006–07.
The country's football competition was restructured in 2008 with the introduction of the new 3. Liga. TSV's performance markedly improved and they finished their 2007–08 campaign in fourth place, which advanced the side out of the now fifth tier Oberliga to the Regionalliga Süd (IV) for the 2008–09 season. Due to Regionalliga legislations on stadium size, TSV Großbardorf had to move to Willy-Sachs-Stadion in Schweinfurt for its home games.
They lasted only a single season at this level, returning to the Bayernliga for 2009–10. At the end of the 2011–12 campaign, TSV qualified for the promotion round to the new Regionalliga Bayern (IV), but was knocked out by BC Aichach in the first round. The league was split into northern and southern divisions and the club is now part of the former.
TSV Großbardorf finished third in the league in 2012–13 but qualified for the promotion round after second-placed Jahn Forchheim declined the opportunity. In the play-offs the team lost 8–4 on aggregate to Regionalliga side SpVgg Bayern Hof, mainly because of a humiliating 1–6 home defeat in the first leg. Before the start of the 2013–14 season the club unveiled a new logo and also announced that it had sold the naming rights to its stadium, now renamed the Bioenergie-Arena.
