The SV Süd Forst was founded in 1907 as the seventh division (south) of the United Free Gymnastics Association in Forst / Lausitz . As early as 1913 and 1914, the club became district champions in workers' football. It was renamed to the Turn- und Sportverein süd Forst . When the ATSB decided in 1919 to compete with the DFB to host a national football championship for workers' sports clubs, also Sued Forst took part. As early as 1920, Süd qualified as East German champions for the finals . On June 20, 1920, the team in Kassel defeated TSG Waldau surprisingly 5-1 in front of 4,500 spectators and made it to the final. The final, which took place in Leipzig, was lost 3-2 against TSV Fürth .

Also in the 1925/26 season, Süd Forst was able to qualify for the ATSB championship again as champions of the ATSB district of Eastern Germany. In the semifinals, TSV St. Leonhard-Schweinau was defeated 2-0. However, Forst clearly lost the final, which took place in Dresden on May 29, 1926 in front of 12,000 spectators, 1: 5 against Dresdner SV 1910 .

In 1933 all workers' sports clubs , including TuS Süd Forst, were dissolved by the National Socialists . The club merged with VfB 1901 Forst , which was founded in 1901 as FC Hohenzollern Forst and played in the Niederlausitz district league of the southeast German football association until the end of the 1920s , and from then on played as SpVgg Forst in the Berlin-Brandenburg football district of the specialist office football . In 1935 he was promoted to the second class district class Lausitz.

After the Second World War, the club was revived as a sports community under the name SG Forst-Süd . 1950/51 missed the sports community as second place by five points difference on the BSG unit Spremberg the promotion to the second class GDR league . After brief name changes to SG Blau-Weiß Forst and SG Süd Forst , Forst became a company sports community in 1952 with the name BSG Einheit Forst . 1958, 1963/64, 1965–67 and 1972–80 played unit in the football district league Cottbus , the third highest division in the game operations of the German Football Association (DFV) of the GDR. With second place in the 1974/75 season, the club again narrowly missed the rise to the GDR league, four points separated Forst from the second team of Energie Cottbus at the end of the season .

After the reunification, it was renamed SV Süd Forst . In the 1990s, the football department of PSV Forst joined SV Süd. In 2007, the year of the club's centenary, it was promoted to the Landesliga Süd Brandenburg. There Forst was able to hold for three years before the 2009/2010 season ended on a relegation zone.

Due to demographic problems in the city of Forst and the resulting lack of players, the club decided to merge with Rot-Weiß 90 Forst on July 1st, 2011. The club that emerged from this was named SV Lausitz Forst.
