BSV Eintracht Sondershausen

This club has so many name changes and mergers that they should seriously consider relocating to Austria.

The roots go back to 1945, when soccer was restarted in the Soviet Occupation Zone. The new organization was intended as the heir of SV 1911 Sonderhausen, but soon followed into the the usual industrial alignments of GDR sports. After various affiliations (among them Industrie, Mechanik, Motor, Aktivist, Empor etc.), in 1958 they settled on BSG Glückauf, more or less, adding Vorwärts sometime in 1973. Somewhere in there BSG Elektro got going as a seperate club. Glückauf was the stronger club, spending most of the 1980s in the 2nd division DDR-Liga.

The new club was founded in 1990 after reunification through the merger of BSG Elektro and BSG Glückauf. After a few seasons in the Landesliga Thüringen, they made the jump to the Oberliga, but it's been a struggle to stay up. In fact, in 2001 they only survived because VfL Halle voluntarily withdrew.
