Bornaer SV 91

A club from a small town in Saxony, in the triangle between Leipzig, Chemnitz and Dresden. It was founded in 1945 as SG Borna, as the descendant of the pre-WWII SV Borna. In 1949, it became BSG Fortschritt and a couple of years later BSG Aktivist. The club basically kicked around at the lower regions of GDR soccer. With the collapse of the GDR, the club was quickly renamed Bergbau-SV for it's last season in the GDR leagues, and then became Bornaer SV 91.

After reunification, Borna managed to maintain Oberliga status for several seasons, before dropping down into obscurity. The club has about 570 members in various sports.
