SG Quelle TV 1860 Fürth

This club was founded in 1973, as the soccer section of the larger TV 1860 Fürth. It has approximately 500 members (about 10% of the larger club). The main sponsor is Quelle, a large German retailer.

Starting with the mid-1990s, Quelle had some modest success and started the way up. In 1998-99, Quelle gainied 2nd place in the Bayernliga, and subsequently qualified in promotion playoffs to return to the Regionalliga. The team was never really in the running to qualify for the new combined Regionalliga, but put up a decent effort before dropping back to the 4th division.

Unfortunately soccer is second fiddle to athletics and some worthless sports, so they only get the leftovers.
Supporters Not many. They only averaged 258 in the last year of the Regionalliga. In fact, in 1996-97, both 1.FC Nürnberg and SpVgg Fürth were also in the Regionalliga - and Quelle still only managed 1,121 per match! There are about 500 club members, about 10% of the main club.
Foes Greuther Fürth is a logical rival, but only via envy. Maybe the non-soccer members of TV Fürth :)
