The association was founded on April 29, 1946. After a long time in the Styrian lower classes, the East Styrians finally made it into the Styrian regional league in 1978 under the team sponsor “Sparkasse Hartberg”.

Due to its immense home strength, TSV Hartberg was also considered a cup specialist for a long time, often causing teams to trip up and throw them out of the cup. So in the 1986/1987 season, when they made it to the sixteenth finals of the ÖFB Cup and previously eliminated the Wiener Sport-Club (with Hans Krankl ) 1-0. One season later, in 1987/1988, they became champions in the Styrian regional league for the first time, and won the relegation against the Carinthian champions Wolfsberger AC (0: 6 away and 2: 3 at home) and the Upper Austrian champions SV Ried (1: 0 at home and 7th) : 3 away) the 2nd place, which did not qualify for the ascent.

Another season later, in 1988/1989, TSV Hartberg briefly became known throughout Austria, as the national league team sensationally advanced to the quarter-finals of the ÖFB Cup . On the way there they defeated SV Feldkirchen 2-1 in the second round , the first division SK Austria Klagenfurt 2-1 in the round of 16 and the second division SV Spittal / Drau 2-2 and 8: 7 on penalties in the second round . In the quarter-finals, they were eliminated 3: 3 against first division SV Austria Salzburg - the Hartbergers were already 1: 0, 2: 1 and 3: 2 - and 4: 5 on penalties. In the 1989/1990 season, TSV Hartberg was champion in the Styrian regional league for the second time, but failed again in the promotion games against the meanwhile relegated Wolfsberger AC (0: 2 away and 2: 2 at home) and SV Ried (3: 4 at home and 2: 3 away). The home defeat against SV Ried was the first in more than two years.

After four average seasons in the Styrian regional league (final placements 7th, 3rd, 2nd and 5th) Sparkasse Hartberg became champion of the Styrian regional league for the third time in the 1994/1995 season and thus the team achieved the long-awaited promotion to the meanwhile as third highest division Austria's re-established Regionalliga Mitte . In the same year, the team under Gerald Gamperl sensationally reached the semifinals of the ÖFB Cup, in which they were defeated by DSV Leoben just 0: 1. Also in this cup season, the Hartberger threw out higher rated teams, including the 1st Wiener Neustädter SC (2nd division) in the round of 32 with 3: 2 after extra time, in the round of 16 the SK Vorwärts Steyr (1st division) with 0: 0 and 4: 1 on penalties and in the quarterfinals the FavAC (at that time leader of the 2nd division) with 1: 0.

In the following 1995/1996 season, the Hartbergers achieved the championship title of the Regionalliga Mitte as a climber and thus the march through and direct promotion to the 2nd division , but rose two years later as eleventh - due to a reform of the league and although they actually managed to stay in the league would have - off again. In the 1998/1999 season they were again champions in the Regionalliga Mitte. Since the 2nd division has now been renamed the First League and has been reduced to 10 clubs, you had to play a barrage against the champions of the Regionalliga West, the WSG Swarovski Wattens . In these promotion games, the Hartberger were defeated 0: 2 at home and 2: 3 away and thus remained in the Regionalliga Mitte.

In the 2005/06 season, the team again fixed the championship of the Middle Regional League three game days before the end and, after this league was increased to 12 clubs, managed to get promoted to the first division . The TSV was immediately relegated after only one season and will play again in the Regionalliga Mitte from the 2007/08 season. On the last day of the 2008/09 season, TSV succeeded in returning to the second-rate first division. In 2009/10 the league was for the first time with the ninth place. This was fixed in the 31st round when TSV Hartberg played 1-1 against SCR Altach and First Vienna FC 1894 lost 1-0 to eventual champions FC Wacker Innsbruck . In the 2010/11 season , after victories over SV Seekirchen and SV Sierning , they were promoted to the second round of the Cup in the ÖFB Cup . There you got the SK Rapid Vienna drawn. The Styrians clearly lost this game with 0: 3 goals.

In the 2011/2012 season , the Hartberger under coach Kurt Garger did not get going and only ranked at the bottom of the table. Even a change of coach to Walter Hörmann did not bring the desired success, so that the Styrians finished the championship last. This seemed to seal the relegation to the Regionalliga Mitte. After LASK Linz was refused the license by the Bundesliga, Hartberg got the chance to secure the first league in two relegation games against the Grazer AK . The Hartbergers scored 0-0 away and were already 3-0 in the home game when GAK hooligans stormed the pitch in the 76th minute. With that the relegation was done. The club was more successful in the ÖFB Cup , where it eliminated SK Sturm Graz (4: 2 n. V.) away in the quarter-finals . It was only in the semi-finals that the Hartbergers ended up against the eventual cup winners FC Red Bull Salzburg (0: 1).

The coach Andreas Moriggl, who was only engaged in the summer of 2012 and who succeeded Walter Hörmann, was replaced on October 15, 2012 by the long-time ÖFB junior coach Paul Gludovatz . The Hartberger finished ninth and penultimate place in the 2012/13 season, but saved the relegation because of the license withdrawal of FC Lustenau . Coach Paul Gludovatz left Hartberger after the end of the season and moved to his home in Burgenland.

In the 2013/14 season, the Styrians finished the championship with 8th place and were thus able to secure relegation under coach Bruno Friesenbichler . The preparation for the 2014/15 season was of course more than turbulent: the Bosnian Ivo Istuk was in office for only about a month, who was dismissed on June 17, 2014 with the curious reason that he did not speak German. He was followed by his predecessor Bruno Friesenbichler as the "new" trainer. Jürgen Rindler became the new chairman of the Hartberg soccer club. Then in October the real reason for castling became known. TSV Hartberg had arranged a sponsorship deal that got the club into trouble. Coach Ivo Istuk was also involved in the deal: Instead of originally announced funds from a sponsor from Azerbaijan , Istuk should have brought in funds through massive game manipulation and thus made new signings possible. The Federal Criminal Police Office BKS and the Austrian Bundesliga were notified. Due to the broken sponsorship agreement, the association was missing 200,000 euros in the cash register, for which the public purse had to advance money. However, Hartberg has to repay the sum mentioned, namely by canceling the state subsidies (instead of the previous 100,000 euros per year, only 60,000 euros for the next five years).

TSV Hartberg finished last in the 2014/15 season and had to relegate to the regional league.

In 2016/17 you could become champion of the Regionalliga Mitte and thus rise again to the second highest league. In the 2017/18 season they reached second place in the first division, which entitles them to promotion to the Bundesliga . However, the club was denied promotion in the first two instances. The club went to the Permanent Neutral Arbitration Court against the decision, through which the Hartbergers received their license on May 29, 2018 and thus rose to the Bundesliga for the first time.

The home games of TSV Hartberg take place in the Profertil Arena Hartberg , which was expanded in 2006 and is commissioned for 4500 visitors.
