VfB Pössneck

The club was founded in 1909 as VfB Pößneck, but didn't achieve much. From 1950-80, it became BSG Fortschritt, affilaited with a fabrics factory. From 1980-90, it was affiliated the Rotasym firm and was known as BSG Rotasym. Upon reunification in 1990, BSG Rotasym merged with BSG Rotation to form Sportgeminschaft Pößneck, and in 1994, the old name VfB came back. The club has about 385 members.

In 2003 there was a bit of excitement, as the new head coach was Lothar Kurbjuweit, a former GDR star player. He led them to an excellent 7th place in the Oberliga, but after a "difference of opinion" with the club, left after only 14 months.
