SG Betzdorf is a German football club from the city of Betzdorf, Rhineland-Palatinate. The team has its origins as a football department established within the gymnastics club "Betzdorfer Turnverein" on 6 September 1906. The footballers soon became independent as "Verein für Jugend- und Volksspiele Betzdorf" which was later renamed "Betzdorfer Fußball Club 1906". [Grüne, Hardy (2001). Vereinslexikon. Kassel: AGON Sportverlag ISBN 3-89784-147-9]



"FC" was joined by "Reichssportverein Betzdorf" in 1934 and the was re-united with its parent club "Betzdorf TV" in 1936 to play as "Reichsbahn-SG Betzdorf". The club played second division football on the Bezirksliga Mittelrhein and made failed promotion playoff appearances in 1938 and 1941. They became part of the Gauliga Moselland in 1943 and finished third in the Staffel Ost (Eastern section) of the division. It was intended to resume play in the 1944-45 season with three sections within the division, but by this time Allied armies were entering Germany in the latter stages of World War II and it is not known what teams were able to take the field and how many matches they were able to complete.

Following the war, occupying Allied authorites ordered the dissolution of most organizations in the country, including sports and football clubs. "SG" disappeared briefly, but was re-established in 1947. The club merged with "Eisenbahn-Sportverein Betzdorf" in 1962 to form "ESG 06 Betzdorf". The combined side made a single season appearance in the Amateurliga Rheinland (III) in 1971-72 but finished last. The union lasted until 1979 when the two sides went their separate ways.

In 1994, "SG Betzdorf" won promotion to the Oberliga Südwest (IV) for a three season turn. They were immediately re-promoted out of the Verbandsliga Rheinland (V) and played another two Oberliga seasons. "SG" returned once again to the Oberliga in 2004, before again being sent down in 2007. The club won promotion to the Oberliga once more in 2007-08 with a Verbandsliga championship.
