1. FC Saarbrücken II was the reserve team of German association football club 1. FC Saarbrücken, based in Saarbrücken, Saarland. Historically, until 2005, the team has played as 1. FC Saarbrücken Amateure during the times the senior team played in professional football.

The team has reached the first round of the DFB-Pokal, the German Cup, just once, in 2002–03. The team has played as high as the Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar, courtesy to league titles in the Verbandsliga Saarland, than the highest football league in the state.


The team first made an appearance in the Ehrenliga Saarland from 1948 to 1951 in place of the senior team which played, for a season, in the French second division and, after that, in a friendlies competition.[1]

After a lengthy absence from the top division of the state it made a reappearance in 1986, now in the tier four Verbandsliga Saarland and won the league two seasons later in 1988. Nine seasons in the Oberliga Südwest, now the Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar followed. The team was relegated from the Oberliga in 1997, 2001 and 2007 to return each time a short while later.[2] In 2002 it won the Saarland Cup for the first and only time thereby qualifying for the first round of the 2002–03 German Cup where it lost to Arminia Bielefeld.[3]

1. FC Saarbrücken II has been playing at Oberliga level since the last promotion in 2010, achieving a fourth-place finish as its best-ever result in 2013.[4] At the end of the 2014–15 season the team was withdrawn by the club from competitive football.
