The FC Sachsen Leipzig was a Leipzig football club from the district Leutzsch . It was created in 1990 from the merger of the associations BSG Chemie Leipzig and BSG Chemie Böhlen . After the GDR upper league was abolished , the first football team initially played in the upper league northeast as the highest division in the new federal states, but later only played in third to fifth class. After ongoing financial problems, the game was stopped on June 30, 2011 and the club was deleted from the club register after the insolvency proceedings were concluded .

One of the two predecessor clubs, BSG Chemie Leipzig, won the championship of the GDR league in 1951 and 1964 .

Predecessor clubs

1932 to 1949

Historical development of the name of FC Sachsen Leipzig and its predecessors.

The sports club for gymnastics and lawn games 1932 Leipzig - TuRa for short - was founded in the Leipzig district of Leutzsch in 1932 as a works team for the Leipzig machine manufacturer Carl M. Schwarz. The first venue of the TuRA football department was initially a sports field on Cottaweg. Later, however, they played in the Leutzscher Stadium, which was built in 1915. The team became Leipzig district class champions in 1936 and qualified for the Gauliga Sachsen , at that time one of the 16 highest German football classes. On November 14, 1938, TuRa merged with Leipziger SV 1899 to form SV TuRa 1899. The soccer team was able to hold out in the Gauliga until 1942, but then rose as the table penultimate. In the 1943/44 season, a so-called war sports community of TuRa and SpVgg Leipzig played in the Gauliga Sachsen.

1949 to 1990

After the dissolution of all sports clubs after the end of the Second World War, the sports community (SG) Leipzig-Leutzsch was founded on February 16, 1946, largely consisting of players from TuRa Leipzig. Sports competitions were initially only allowed to be held regionally and so the first soccer team took part in the Leipzig-Süd district relay. There, the first team finished 3rd in the 1946/47 season and 2nd in the table in 1947/48. In the 1948/49 season, the first team was Leipzig district champion. In the subsequent Saxony championship, the team was only 3rd and was therefore not able to qualify for the 2nd East Zone Championship but for the highest East German soccer class, the DS League , introduced from the 1949/50 season.

On March 21, 1949, the SG Leipzig-Leutzsch merged with the sports associations Lindenau-Hafen , Lindenau-Aue, Leipzig-Mitte and Böhlitz-Ehrenberg to form the Central Sports Association (ZSG) Industry . On April 1, 1949, the ZSG Industrie Leipzig / Leutzsch department split off.

Due to the reorganization of the GDR sports clubs based on company sports associations (BSG) , the ZSG was converted into the BSG Chemie Leipzig on August 16, 1950 . The chemical company VEB Lacke und Farben Leipzig acted as the sponsoring company.

Club history of FC Sachsen Leipzig

In the 1989/90 season , the BSG Chemie Leipzig took second place in the GDR league. As a result of the fall of the Berlin Wall , sport was reorganized in East Germany. The previous BSG Chemie Leipzig was renamed on May 30, 1990 to FC Grün-Weiß 1990 Leipzig . Due to the integration process agreed for GDR football in all-German football, this club would only have been allowed to play third-class. Therefore, a merger offer was made to FSV Böhlen, which had emerged from BSG Chemie Böhlen , and which had reached promotion to the GDR league in the previous season in the GDR soccer league Season B. After FSV Böhlen, which was in a tight financial situation, accepted the offer, the merger of the football departments of both clubs resulted in FC Sachsen Leipzig on August 1, 1990, which exercised its right to promotion to the league.

In the following and final league season, FC Sachsen Leipzig finished 12th in the table and was allowed to participate in the qualifying round for the 2nd Bundesliga . Here, however, the team took last place in Group 2 and thus had to relegate to the new third-class soccer Oberliga Nordost.

Third class

From 1991, the FC Sachsen Leipzig started in the season south of the Oberliga Nordost. In the first season, the club - although coming directly from the GDR league - only placed 5th in the table. In the 1992/93 season , the club was able to win the championship of the season south. However, FC Sachsen Leipzig was not allowed to take part in the relegation games for promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga, because the club was refused the license for the 2nd Bundesliga by the DFB . Instead, the second-placed Bischofswerdaer FV 08 took part in the relegation games. In the same year the FC Sachsen Leipzig succeeded by a 2: 0 against Dresdner SC winning the Saxony Cup .

In the 1993/94 season, FC Sachsen Leipzig qualified with fourth place in the table for the newly created regional league . The club won the Saxony Cup again, and VFC Plauen was defeated 2-1 in the final. In the Regionalliga Nordost 1994/95 , FC Sachsen Leipzig reached 2nd place in the table behind FC Carl Zeiss Jena and thus only narrowly failed to advance to the 2nd Bundesliga. The Sachsenpokal was won for the third time in a row with a 2-0 win over Dynamo Dresden II .

Financial problems and first bankruptcy

In the following years, the club mostly occupied places in the upper half of the table in the regional league. However, due to constant changes of coaches and constant "new beginnings", the club got into financial problems. In the spring of 1999, FC Sachsen Leipzig could only be saved from bankruptcy by Michael Kölmel through a partnership with Kinowelt .

The 1998/99 season saw competitive games against local rivals VfB Leipzig for the first time since 1991 . These ended with 3: 3 and a 0: 5 defeat for FC Sachsen Leipzig. In terms of sport, the season was disappointing and it was not until the 31st match day that despite a 2-0 defeat against FSV Zwickau the non-relegation was certain.

In the following season 1999/2000 the FC Sachsen Leipzig started with 3 victories in a row and could win both games against the VfB Leipzig with 2-0 and 1-0 respectively. These were the first victories against VfB Leipzig or its predecessor clubs in 23 years. At the end of the season, FC Sachsen Leipzig took 6th place and thus qualified for the new two-track regional league.

In the new North Season 2000/01 they played continuously throughout the season against relegation, which could only be finally prevented on the last day of the game. However, the club's financial problems had worsened in the meantime. The DFB demanded a guarantee of DM 5.9 million to remain in the regional league . At the same time, however, Kölmels Sportwelt and Kinowelt were also in financial problems and could not provide the guarantee. Then the club was denied the license for the following season, which led to the forced relegation to the fourth-class Oberliga Nordost . The presidium of the association resigned and the new emergency presidium applied to the Leipzig district court to open insolvency proceedings.

Playing times as FC Sachsen Leipzig
Playing times in the GDR Oberliga and GDR League

After the bankruptcy, the club had to build a new team. The goal was to achieve a single-digit place in the table in the 2001/02 season . This goal was achieved, the club finished 5th in the table at the end of the season.

After this "consolidation season" the club wanted to play again for promotion, for which the squad was strengthened. In fact, they managed to play at the top in the 2002/03 season . VfB Leipzig was also defeated in both championship games - 1-0 in the Alfred-Kunze-Sportpark and 3-0 in the Bruno-Plache-Stadion . Due to the liquidation of VfB Leipzig after its second bankruptcy, these were the last competitive game derbies for the following six years. In the end, at the end of the season, FC Sachsen Leipzig took first place in the table with one point ahead of second-placed FC Carl Zeiss Jena. In the relegation games for promotion, they defeated the first-placed team in the Nordstaffel FC Schönberg 95 with 2-0 and 1-0 and were promoted to the regional league - the first promotion since 1985.

For the regional league, however, FC Sachsen Leipzig was playfully too weak. With only four wins and 24 points from 34 games, the club was immediately relegated. During the 2003/04 season there were a total of four coach changes at FC Sachsen Leipzig and the club was relegated on 30 of the 34 match days. Since the game against Borussia Dortmund II , FC Sachsen Leipzig played its home games in the Zentralstadion .

In the 2004/05 season the club played again in the Oberliga Nordost, Season South. The intention was to play for immediate promotion, which is why Wolfgang Frank was hired as a coach. After a difficult start at the beginning and the subsequent resignation of the Executive Committee in the person of Christian Rocca, FC Sachsen Leipzig achieved better results. Rolf Heller became the new president and the season ended in third place. In addition, FC Sachsen Leipzig was able to win the Saxony Cup for the fourth and last time with a 2: 1 nV against Chemnitzer FC . In the following season, the club also reached third place in the table after coach Wolfgang Frank was dismissed in October 2005 and replaced by Hans-Jörg Leitzke .

New difficulties and second bankruptcy

In the 2006/07 season , the club really wanted to advance, which is why a lot of money was invested. The season budget rose to 3.15 million euros. In addition, Eduard Geyer was introduced as sports director and other players such as Rolf-Christel Guié-Mien were committed. After the lack of success, Eduard Geyer moved to the position of coach. At the turn of the year 2006/07 negotiations were held with the Austrian beverage manufacturer Red Bull to take over the association and rename it to Red Bull Leipzig . After months of protests and in view of the fact that the DFB statute forbade changes to club names in favor of a sponsor, the negotiations failed. FC Sachsen Leipzig then played an inadequate second half and especially disappointed the players bought as top performers. There were repeated protests by the fans because of the poor performance of the team. In the end, 8 points were missing from the aspired promotion position and the club did not get beyond fourth place in the whole season.

Home game against Carl Zeiss Jena II on May 25, 2008

In the summer of 2007 the club faced acute financial problems again. Once again, insolvency could only be prevented with financial support from Kölmel. Trainer Eduard Geyer said goodbye on the first day of training. The 2007/08 season got off to a bad start, with players often getting their salaries late because of the club's financial problems. Shortly before the end of the season, the new coach Hans-Jörg Leitzke was also dismissed due to the continued failure. Michael Breitkopf and Jamal Engel took over the training. Surprisingly, FC Sachsen Leipzig was able to win the last five games and still reach 4th place in the table and thus the relegation for the new regional league. The relegation games against Greifswalder SV 04 ended 4: 2 and 2: 2, which meant that you could move up from the major league to the regional league, but remained in the fourth highest division.

Before the start of the regional league season 2008/09 , the financial problems of FC Sachsen Leipzig became more and more threatening. In addition, Kölmel was no longer willing to save the club again and again with further loans. The association tried to reorganize itself through the introduction of the semi-profit and an upper salary limit of 3,000 euros. The designated trainer Martin Polten resigned before his first day at work. Dirk Heyne became the new coach . The start of the season was mixed and after the 10th matchday, FC Sachsen Leipzig did not come out of the relegation ranks. After the Leipzig tax office had filed for bankruptcy against the club on February 26, 2009, FC Sachsen Leipzig itself announced the opening of insolvency proceedings on March 4, 2009. The forced relegation to the now fifth-class Oberliga Nordost was sealed. In the end, the club was seventeenth in the table, 18 points behind the non-relegation places. The bankruptcy proceedings were opened on June 30, 2009.

New start in the 5th division and final bankruptcy

In the league season 2009/10 the club started with the goal of reaching a place in the top eight. The first derby in six years against local rivals 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig ended 0-0 on August 23, 2009 in front of around 15,000 spectators in the central stadium . In the meantime, the insolvency administrator was able to continue gaming operations at the first creditors' meeting on September 16, 2009. The club had debts of 2.5 to 2.7 million euros, including around 1.5 million euros to Michael Kölmel's EMKA Immobilien-Beteiligungs-GmbH for backward central stadium rents. The club finished the season in 6th place in the table after they even managed a 2-1 win in the last game in front of around 10,000 spectators against RB Leipzig , who had already been promoted .

The aim for the following 2010/11 season was initially to confirm the performance of the second half of the previous season and to play consistently. The squad of FC Sachsen Leipzig was strengthened selectively - the most famous addition was Chwitscha Schubitidse from FSV Zwickau . In the first half of the season, the club picked up 20 points from 12 games and went into the second half of the season with three pent-up games. During the winter break, the goal for the 2010/11 season was changed, the board of the club now spoke of the fact that promotion was wanted. Shortly before the start of the second half of the season, board member Lars Ziegenhorn resigned from his position.

The start of the second half was unsuccessful. The first win against 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig was not achieved until the 13th game after the winter break . As a result of the lack of sporting development and a controversial youth cooperation agreement with RB Leipzig , the number of viewers fell drastically. After the winter break, FC Sachsen Leipzig never had more than 1,000 spectators at the Alfred Kunze Sports Park.

The developments led to the fact that on May 18, 2011 it was announced at a press conference that the club would cease playing on June 30, 2011 and then be wound up. FC Sachsen Leipzig was deleted from the club register. The playing rights of the second team and the youth teams were transferred to the newly founded club SG Leipzig-Leutzsch , which also tried to get the playing rights of the first team. The Saxon Football Association, however, refused the transfer because not all of the top division players of the wound up FC Sachsen had agreed to join SG Leipzig-Leutzsch. The corresponding Leipzig Oberliga starting place was forfeited because, contrary to initial plans, a takeover by RB Leipzig did not take place.

FC Sachsen Leipzig was based in the west of Leipzig in the Leutzsch district and played its home games in the Alfred Kunze Sports Park until 2004 . The sports facility, which was named after the communist and anti-fascist Georg Schwarz during the GDR era , originally offered space for up to 32,000 and later 22,000 visitors. As a result of modernization measures after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the capacity was reduced to 18,000 places, now the permitted capacity is 4,999 places.

From March 2004 until the end of the 2008/09 season, the club played in the newly built central stadium , which has space for 44,345 spectators. The club received a high six-figure guarantee per season from the stadium operator Michael Kölmel, but was also obliged to pay rents for the use of the central stadium. When the stadium opened on March 7, 2004, 28,595 spectators came to the regional league game against Borussia Dortmund (amateurs). The highest number of spectators at a competitive match of FC Sachsen Leipzig in the new arena, at 30,450, was achieved in the 2005/06 DFB Cup against the then second division club Dynamo Dresden .

As a result of the second bankruptcy and the ongoing financial problems, FC Sachsen Leipzig has been playing its home games again at the Alfred Kunze Sportpark since the 2009/10 season. The only exception were so-called risk games such as the encounters against local rivals 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig , which continued to be held in the central stadium - which has since been renamed the Red Bull Arena .

Despite the five-year interlude in the new central stadium, the average attendance at home games of FC Sachsen Leipzig - apart from the 2003/04 season - remained almost unchanged. The most popular home matches (point games) in the 21 seasons of FC Sachsen Leipzig were:

  • 1990/91 season against Chemnitzer FC : 14,000 spectators (0: 0)

The table tennis department, which was located until the beginning of the 1990s, was spun off and now plays independently under the name "Leutzscher Füchse". The chess department was discontinued in summer 2007 and the bowling and handball departments in summer 2011.

Unofficial successor clubs

BSG Chemie Leipzig (since 1997)

Club coat of arms of the BSG Chemie Leipzig

The BSG Chemie Leipzig was founded on July 16, 1997 by supporters of the FC Sachsen Leipzig as a ball sports promotion association Chemie Leipzig to protect the name and the brand "BSG Chemie Leipzig" and to promote the FC Sachsen Leipzig. The club took part in the season 2008/09 in the 3rd district class , season 1 (12th league) for the first time with its own men's soccer team in the game of the DFB. After several promotions, the club took over the playing rights of the first men's soccer team of VfK Blau-Weiß Leipzig and the handball team of the insolvent FC Sachsen Leipzig in the 2011/12 season . With the 2014/15 season, BSG Chemie Leipzig also took over the playing rights of the old men’s team and the bowling department of the insolvent SG Sachsen Leipzig.

On August 12, 2011, the general meeting decided to rename the club to its current name, the Betriebsportgemeinschaft Chemie Leipzig . The club has been the sole tenant of the Alfred Kunze Sports Park since the 2014/15 season. In 2016 the team rose to the NOFV Oberliga and 2017 Regionalliga Nordost, from which they were relegated in 2018. In the same year, BSG Chemie won the Saxony Cup and thus qualified for the 2018/19 DFB Cup .

SG Leipzig Leutzsch was founded on May 21, 2011 . The club started playing in the 2011/12 season, took over the playing rights of the second men's team, the old men's team, the junior teams and the bowling department of the insolvent FC Sachsen Leipzig and became the main tenant in the Alfred-Kunze-Sportpark. SG Leipzig Leutzsch saw itself - analogous to BSG Chemie Leipzig - as the only legitimate successor to the dissolved FC Sachsen Leipzig.

On May 31, 2013, the general assembly decided to rename the association to SG Sachsen Leipzig .

After liquidity problems arose at the end of 2013, SG Sachsen Leipzig had to file for bankruptcy on May 5, 2014. The insolvency proceedings were opened on June 30, 2014, so that the club was relegated to the state class Saxony North. As a result, however, the club was unable to provide evidence of the youth teams required for the league, which is why first the Saxon Football Association and then the Football Association of the City of Leipzig did not grant the club the right to play in one of their leagues, which means that SG Sachsen Leipzig in the 2014 / 15 could no longer participate in gaming operations. As a result, the lease for the Alfred-Kunze-Sportpark was terminated by the city of Leipzig and the club was dissolved.

LFV Sachsen Leipzig (since 2014)

In October 2014, with the establishment of the Leutzscher Fußballverein Sachsen Leipzig eV (LFV Sachsen Leipzig), another attempt was made to build on the tradition of FC Sachsen. For the 2015/16 season, LFV Sachsen Leipzig started playing in the 3rd district class and is currently playing in the city class after three consecutive promotions. The LFV plays its home games as a subtenant of SV Leipzig Nordwest in the Willi-Kühn-Sportpark at Merseburger Straße 187. The team was trained in the first three years by the former FC Sachsen coach Michael Breitkopf. After a turbulent city class season 2018/19 (among other things, the coach Havel was on leave), the LFVSL just managed to stay in the league. In the 2019/20 season, after the end of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club was able to stay in the league despite poor performance.
