Germania Halberstadt

The actual founding of this club goes back to 1949, when it was formed as a Betriebssportgemeinschaft, BSG Reichsbahn. In 1950, it kept it's relationship with the railways, but became Lokomotive. Success on the field was limited, and Lok usually kicked around in the 2nd or 3rd division of GDR football.

After reunification, Lok kept it's affiliation with the railways, and became a Eisenbahnsportverein. However by 1993, since only 18% of club members were railway workers or families, they were kicked out of the Railways Sports Federation. The soccer section decided to claim the heritage of the old club Germania, and became FC Germania Halbertsadt. By 1997, soccer section was reintegrated into the VfB umbrella.
