SV Dessau 05

By default, they've become no.1 in the city with the collapse of bitter rival Anhalt.

The club was founded in 1905 as Dessauer Fussball-Club 1905. Through an additional merger they became SV Dessau in 1921. The club had some success in the 1930s, winning the Gauliga Mitte 6 times from 1935-45.

After WW-II, the story gets familiar. The club was restarted, and then forced into the GDR sports organization, coming out as BSG Motor. There was some minor success, as Motor competed in the DDR-Oberliga until 1955, and then at the 2nd division until 1967. Then they pretty much disappear and play second fiddle to rivals Vorwärts Dessau.

In 1995, the club took up with it's old name, once again becoming SV Dessau 05.
