SV 07 Elversberg

Originally founded in 1907 as FC Germania, it became SV 07 in 1918. The highlight of this scrappy club was probably playing in the Regionalliga in 96/97, and although they finished dead last, they gave a good account of themselves. Surprisingly, after only a year back in the Oberliga, they bounced back, and were back in the Regionalliga.

After a short one year stint in the 4th division, they were back, this time fighting for 12th place. They barely made it on goal difference, and then proceeded to knock off Wuppertaler SV in the decisive playoff to gain a place in the new combined Regionalliga.
