After the Second World War, BSG Chemie Buna celebrated its first success in 1951. Against BSG Chemie Leipzig , the Merseburgers surprisingly won the chemistry cup. In 1952 the BSG was one of the founding communities of the newly created third-class Halle district league. After winning the district championship in 1964, Schkopau failed in the elimination round for the GDR league , but was able to make the promotion perfect a year later. From 1974 to 1981 the chemists played continuously in the second division. In the seventies, the Schkopau team reached the last sixteen (0: 1 against FC Karl-Marx-Stadt ) and twice the quarter-finals (3: 4, 0: 4 against FC Rot-Weiß Erfurt ) in the GDR soccer cup . In 1981 Schkopau celebrated the greatest success in football history with promotion to the GDR league . However, this league turned out to be a size too big. While the Schkopauer won 3-1 against Energie Cottbus on matchday two , a week later there was a 1:10 debacle against Dynamo Dresden . In their only league season, the Merseburgers achieved a total of eleven points. Under coach Olaf Keller , the following regular team played in the major league:

From 1982 to 1990, the BSG Chemie Buna Schkopau played again consistently in the second-rate league after relegation to the Oberliga. In the summer of the unit , the team was withdrawn from the second division for financial reasons. The club, which was renamed SV Merseburg 99 during the season, joined the Saxony-Anhalt state league, which was then third-class in the East German league system, in the first season of 1990/1991 and qualified as its first champion for the third-class NOFV amateur league in all of Germany from the 1991/92 season Soccer. After relegation in the summer of 1992, a year later, he was promoted again to the amateur league for the 1993/94 season . With the introduction of the Regionalliga as the new 3rd division, the penultimate place was enough for the Merseburgers to remain in the fourth-class NOFV-Oberliga for 1994/95 . After the descent in 1995/96 , Merseburg continued to be an elevator team . After several relegations and promotions, the club established itself in the seventh-class national league from 2012. In the 2014/15 season, the Merseburgers came second in the Landesliga Süd. Since several teams had withdrawn in the Association League Saxony-Anhalt , the second place was enough for promotion to the now sixth class Association League. In its first season 2015/16, SV Merseburg won the championship straight away and was promoted to the fifth-class Oberliga Nordost , from which the club relegated after two seasons. Until the 2018/19 season, the club played in the Landesliga Süd.
