FC Wegberg-Beeck is a German association football club from the town of Wegberg, North Rhine-Westphalia. The club's greatest success has been promotion to the tier four Regionalliga West in 2015.

The club has also taken part in the first round of the DFB-Pokal, the German Cup, on one occasion, courtesy to a Middle Rhine Cup win.


The club was formed as Sportvereins 1920 Beeck in February 1920, became SC Beeck after the Second World War and adopted its current name in July 1996.[1]

SC Beeck began its rise from local amateur level in 1993 when it won promotion to the Landesliga Mittelrhein followed by promotion to the Verbandsliga Mittelrhein the year after. The club won promotion to the Oberliga Nordrhein after a runners-up finish in the Verbandsliga in 1996 and achieved good results in its first three seasons there, a third-place finish in 1999 as its best result. The following three seasons the team gradually declined and was eventually relegated in 2002. It had to drop to the tier six Landesliga Mittelrhein for a season in 2002–03 but quickley recovered.[2]

Returning to the tier five Verbandsliga Mittelrhein from 2003 the club finished seventh in its first season but won the league the year after. It was promoted to the Oberliga Nordrhein once more but lasted for only one season before dropping back down in 2006. Four more Verbandsliga seasons followed in which FC Wegberg-Beeck finished third in the first but then slipped to mid-table finishes for the next two. It qualified for the 2008–09 DFB-Pokal after a Middle Rhine Cup win the season before, but lost 4–1 to Alemannia Aachen in the first round.[3] In 2009–10 it took out its second Verbandsliga title and moved up to NRW-Liga, the Oberliga Nordrhein having been disbanded in favour of a statewide league.[4]

Again the club lasted only one season before being relegated again and returning to the Verbandsliga in 2011. After the 2011–12 season the NRW-Liga was disbanded after only four seasons and the Verbandsliga Mittelrhein took its place in the Middle Rhine region, becoming the Mittelrheinliga. The club played in this league until 2015 when a league championship earned it promotion to the Regionalliga West but lasted for just one season at Regionalliga level before being relegated again.[4]
