SV Atlas Delmenhorst


Founded 1973 through a merger of FC Roland, SSV Delmenhorst and VSK Bungerhof. The only club that had achieved anything previously was SSV, which had reached the quarterfinals of the amateur championship back in 1951.

In 1999, Atlas voluntarily accepted relegation. For the 1999-2000 season, the club apparently changed it's name to Delmenhorster SC, as the old club collapsed financially. Part of the reason is that the main sponsor, Atlas Weyhausen, left the club high and dry. A name change was needed to find a new sponsor. However, even this desperate bid failed, and the club was wound up. A new, Eintracht Delmenhorst rose out of the ashes...
