Pre-war period

The club was founded in July 1905 as FC Adler 1905 Dessau and was called Dessauer FC 1905 after the merger with the football department of the Protestant youth club in St. Johannis in October of the same year . After the merger with the sports association BAMAG Dessau on February 22, 1919, the club was called VfR Dessau 1905 from then on . The club was named SV Dessau 1905 on November 5, 1921 after it merged with SpVgg Dessau .

In 1935 the club qualified for the Gauliga Mitte , at that time the highest German league. After a fifth place in the first season, the Dessau ruled the league in the following years. In 1937, the club became Gaumeister for the first time and qualified for the final round of the German championship in 1937 . There Dessau was third in a group with VfB Stuttgart , Wormatia Worms and Spielverein 06 Kassel and was eliminated in the preliminary round. After successfully defending the Gaumeist title, the Dessau team again took part in the final round of the 1938 German championship in 1938 . In a group with FC Schalke 04 , BSV 1892 Berlin and VfR Mannheim , Dessau was again third. On October 16, 1938, after a fundamental redesign , the sports facilities at Schillerpark were inaugurated with a 4-1 victory in front of 18,000 spectators against Schalke 04. In 1939, the Dessau team won the Gaume Championship for the third time in a row and finished fourth in the championship table behind Admira Vienna , VfR Mannheim and the Stuttgarter Kickers . In the following years Dessau was twice runner-up before the club was able to win the Gaume Championship three times in a row. In the final round of the German championship, however, the Dessau team was always eliminated early. In 1942 the club reached the quarter-finals of the Tschammer Cup in 1942 . After victories over Eintracht Braunschweig , SpVgg Döbeln and Hamburger SV , Dessauer lost to Schalke 04.

After all sports clubs were dissolved in 1945, the club was re-established as Blau-Weiß Dessau . In the following years there were numerous name changes. This is how the club was called Sport-Union Dessau in 1947 and SG Dessau-Nord in 1948 . In 1949 he became BSG Waggonbau Dessau and from August onwards to BSG Waggonfabrik Dessau . On February 2, 1950 the company was renamed BSG Motor Dessau for the last time.

In 1949, the company sports association became the first FDGB cup winner after a 1-0 win in the final in Halle against BSG Gera-Süd . This also succeeded in qualifying for the GDR Oberliga, which was newly founded in 1949 (as it was called from 1950), where they achieved a respectable third place in the first season. On August 1, 1952, Willi Braun was coach of Dessau and started with the team with a winning streak in the 1952/53 league season . After 13 match days the Dessau team had 25: 1 points and 42:14 goals on their account and led the table with an eight point lead over Turbine Erfurt . During this winning streak, the all-time attendance record in Dessau was also achieved. 32,000 spectators saw the 2-1 success in the home game against Chemie Leipzig . At the end of 1952, successful coach Braun had to give up his position because he was not considered politically reliable. Without him, the team only got ten points in the second half of the season, so it was only sixth at the end of the season. In the following season 1953/54 , the Dessau descended under their new coach Walter Fritzsch after five years of membership in the league. Until 1967 the club played with a few interruptions in the second-rate GDR league , but then disappeared into the sinking of GDR football. From then on, ASG Vorwärts Dessau assumed supremacy in the city .

After the turn

In 1989 the association was renamed SG Waggonbau 05 Dessau , before the association got its original name SV Dessau 05 back on April 22, 1995. In 2004 the Dessauers were promoted to the Oberliga Nordost , but the club rose again in 2005 , the year of its centenary. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary there was a friendly match between SV Dessau 05 and the German record champions FC Bayern Munich in 2005, which the German record champions won 10: 1. After relegation to the Saxony-Anhalt Association League, twelve players left the squad, which was mainly filled by players from their own youth. At the end of the 2005/06 season, SV Dessau 05 secured direct promotion back to what was then the fourth-highest division. Already one year later , however, the club was relegated again in the Verbandsliga.

In March 2009, SV Dessau 05 applied for insolvency proceedings to be opened. At the end of the 2008/09 association league season, the club was relegated to the Saxony-Anhalt state league. The following two seasons closed the SV Dessau 05 each in the upper third of the table of the meanwhile seventh class national league. In 2014 he returned to the Association League.
