FSV 08 Bissingen is a German association football club from the town of Bietigheim-Bissingen, Baden-Württemberg. The club's greatest success has been promotion to the tier five Oberliga Baden-Württemberg in 2012 but it was relegated after only one season there.


The club was formed in 1908 as Fußballclub Viktoria Bissingen. In 1919 the club merged with Sportvereinigung Bissingen but the new club was outlawed by the Nazis in 1934. The football department joined TV Bissingen after that but the latter was dissolved during the Second World War. The club reformed after the war and, in 1950, the football department left to form the current club, FSV 08 Bissingen. The club climbed as high as the tier four 2. Amateurliga in the 1950s but then disappeared into local amateur football for the next decades. FSV started its rise through the league system in 2000 when it won promotion to the Bezirksliga, followed by promotion to the Landesliga four years later. In the same season, 2003–04 it also made a losing appearance in the Württemberg Cup final against VfR Aalen. The club won promotion to the Verbandsliga Württemberg in 2006 and finished runners-up in this league in 2009. In the promotion round to the Oberliga it lost to TSG Weinheim but met the same club again three years later in its second attempt at Oberliga promotion. Successful on this occasion, FSV played in the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg in 2012–13 but finished second-last and was relegated again. The club played two more seasons in the Verbandsliga until it won the league for the first time and another promotion in 2015.[1][2]
