Greifswald football was born in 1911 when a football team was founded within the Greifswald gymnastics association. The new sport quickly became popular in the city and was very popular, and so football fans soon wanted to organize themselves. This happened on May 29, 1912 with the founding of the first Greifswald soccer club under the name Sportverein Greif Greifswald in 1912. The first great success for Greifswald soccer was first achieved by the soccer department of the gymnastics association. On the occasion of the inauguration of the Leipzig Monument to the Battle of the Nations in 1913, they won the German gymnast's soccer tournament. This success could not be further developed as a result of the First World War .

In 1923 the footballers of the Greifswalder Turnerbund set up their own business under the name VfB Greifswald, only to merge three years later on January 3, 1926 with SV Greif Greifswald to form the Greifswalder Sportclub von 1912 (GSC). For a long time, however, the GSC-er were in the shadow of the more successful SC Preußen Greifswald, but reached the same league as their rivals when they were promoted to the Western Pomerania League in 1927. It was reserved for the GSC to play the opening game for the newly built Greifswald football stadium, today's “Volksstadion”, against Sassnitzer SC on May 27, 1927 (2: 3). 1929 saw the GSC's first national success with winning the Vorpommern Cup with a 4-2 win over Concordia Stralsund.

The 1932/33 season was the most successful season before the Second World War . The GSC won the Western Pomerania League and thus reached the final round of the Pomeranian Championship, where it was enough for the runner-up against the strong Szczecin clubs. The outstanding Greifswald player at the time was the technically adept middle runner Herbert Endrussat, who came from Berlin. Unexpectedly, the GSC found itself in the top German football class in the 1933/34 season after it was classified in the Gauliga West Pomerania due to the reorganization of German football. By winning the Gauliga, Greifswalder SC could have played for the German championship. This success was not granted to the Greifswald footballers, however. In 1944, Greifswalder SC merged with HSV Fliegerabwehrschule Greifswald to form the KSG Greifswald war game group . When all clubs were dissolved by the Soviet occupation forces after the Second World War, Greifswalder SC went under. The good standard achieved in the 1930s was only achieved again twenty years later by the footballers from Einheit Greifswald .
