FV Dresden 06 Laubegast

A small Dresden club that is beginning to gain some regional recognition.

Founded in 1906 as Laubegast 06. The first major success was in 1919, when they finished ahead of more established clubs such as Guts-Muts Dresden and Dresdner SC to win the Ostsachsenliga (Eastern Saxony League). This allowed them to compete in the Middle German Championship, where they finished 6th. In 1939 the club was banned by the Nazis, and during the war years, the Sportplatz was even used for makeshift graves. (These were subsequently dug up and relocated after the war.)

During the GDR years, there basically was no club. Many of the members played for various local teams, mostly BSG Motor Dresden-Ost until 1964. That ended when the treasurer apparently embezzled funds. The players continued to bounce around until the local club was finally officially reconsituted on January 1, 1991 as FV Dresden 06 Laubegast. In 2003 they officially dropped the "Laubegast", although many apparently still refer to it by that name.
