BSG Stahl / VfB IMO Merseburg

Under the name BSG Stahl, the team played from 1956 to 1957 and from 1980 to 1990 in the third-rate Halle district league . The greatest successes were third place in 1983 and fourth place in 1981. From 1982 to 1984, the former Soviet national player Jurij Jelissjejew ended his career at BSG Stahl Merseburg. The VfB Merseburg then took over the place in the district league in 1990 and rose one year later to the Association League Saxony-Anhalt . After the merger with IMO Merseburg in 1997, the team reached the final in the Saxony-Anhalt Cup in 2001 , which however was lost 3-0 to 1. FC Magdeburg . In 2005 VfB was relegated to the national league and three years later managed to get promoted again. After just one year, it went back down to the state league in 2009, before the club returned to the Saxony-Anhalt Association League in 2012. There, VfB was runner-up behind local rivals SV Merseburg 99 in 2016. Three years later, VfB IMO secured promotion to the league ahead of schedule, as the club was the only club from the association league to apply for a license for the Oberliga Nordost.
