About SSV Ulm 1846

SSV Ulm 1846 is a Football in Germany from Ulm, Baden-Württemberg and is one of the country's largest and oldest sports clubs with over 12,000 members in more than twenty different departments. The modern-day club was formed out of 5 May 1970 merger of TSG Ulm 1846 and 1. SSV Ulm; on 9 March 2009 the football department became a separate entity known as SSV Ulm 1846 Fußball.


TSG Ulm 1846

The older of the two predecessor sides was founded on 12 April 1846 as Turnerbund Ulm at roughly the same time that the first attempts were being made at codifying the rules of football in England and decades before the game would appear in a recognizable form in Germany. They had an on-again, off-again relationship with Turnverein Ulm through the 1850s. The football department became independent in 1926 as Ulmer Rasensport Verein and in 1939 would merge with Ulmer Fußball Verein, and their old clubmates in TB Ulm and TV Ulm, to form TSG Ulm. Throughout this time the club played in local competition before joining the Gauliga Württemberg, one of sixteen top flight divisions formed in the 1933 reorganisation of German football under the Third Reich, for the 1939–40 season. The club played there until the end of World War II. After the war they began play in the 2nd Oberliga Süd (II) and did well enough to make occasional advances to the Oberliga Süd (1945-63) (I) for short stays before falling back again. In 1963, with the formation of the Bundesliga (football), Germany's new top-flight professional league, TSG Ulm 1846 found itself in the Regionalliga Süd (1963-74) (II) for a couple of seasons before slipping to tier III and IV level play. In 1968 RSVgg Ulm became part of TSG Ulm 1846.

1. SSV Ulm

1. Spiel- und Sportverein Ulm was formed in 1928 and, after two seasons in the Bezirksliga Bayern, joined the Gauliga Württemberg in 1933, well before their future partner, where they earned just mid-table finishes. After the war and leading up to their union with TSG 1846, they played as a third or fourth division side. Finally, in 1970, 1. SSV Ulm merged with TSG 1846 to form the current club.

SSV Ulm 1846

At the time of the merger both clubs were playing football in the tier III Amateurliga Württemberg and would continue to do so for a nearly a decade. In 1980, the combined side advanced to the 2nd Bundesliga (football) and would spend six of the next ten years playing at that level where, except for a fifth place finish in 1982, their results were well down the table. After another decade in the level III Amateur Oberliga Baden-Württemberg and Regionalliga (football) 1846 would make an unexpected breakthrough after just one season in the 2nd Bundesliga with a third place finish that led to the club's promotion to the top-flight Fußball-Bundesliga for the 1999–2000 Fußball-Bundesliga season. Even though the issue was not decided until the last day of the season, Ulm could do no better than a sixteenth place finish and was returned to the second division. The Second Fußball-Bundesliga 2000/01 season was an unqualified disaster for the club: they could manage only another sixteenth place finish and were sent back down to the Regionalliga Süd (III). They were then denied a license over the chaotic state of their finances which plunged the club all the way down to the fifth tier Verbandsliga Württemberg. Ulm have since worked their way back, to the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg (IV) in 2002, and the Regionalliga in 2008. Following the 2009 European football betting scandal, the club released three allegedly involved players, Davor Kraljević, Marijo Marinović and Dinko Radojević.

In January 2011, the club was declared insolvent, and the results of the 2011-11 season were voided. The club has been relegated to the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg for 2011-12.
