SG Egelsbach

The club was founded in 1945, as old clubs merged together: FC Egelsbach 1903, TV 1874 Egelsbach, (this allows them to claim "1874"), TG 1885 Egelsbach and the Arbeiter-Radfahrverein 1905.

The club wallowed in obscurity until the mid 1990s, when they lasted in the Regionalliga Süd for 3 seasons. In 1998, the club had 2 points subtracted, as apparently they didn't pay their fair-share of referee wages. (! - it's a wonder they got any points at all!) Rather than pay up, they voluntarily relegated themselves down to the Bezirksliga.
