Founded on 2 July 1957, FC acknowledges TSV Germania Nöttingen, established prior to World War I, as a predecessor side. Germania folded in 1927.

The modern day successor rose slowly and steadily, out of B-class football into A-class in 1969, on into the Bezirksliga Pforzheim in 1972, the Landesliga Mittelbaden in 1996, the Verbandsliga Nordbaden (V) in 1997, and the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg (IV) in 2002. On reaching the Regionalliga Süd (III) in 2004 FC stumbled and was relegated after finishing in last place. The club currently plays in the fifth tier Oberliga Baden-Württemberg as a lower table side.

In 2010–11, the club lead the Oberliga for most of the season, but eventually missed out on the title and promotion to Waldhof Mannheim when it lost the last two games of the season. A third-place finish in the Oberliga qualified the club for the promotion play-offs to the Regionalliga Südwest, where it defeated FSV Salmrohr and earned promotion. After only one season in the Regionalliga the club was relegated to the Oberliga again in 2015. Finishing runners-up in the Oberliga in 2015–16 Nöttingen was once more promoted to the Regionalliga after a play-off after four-all draw with SC Hauenstein in the final match.[1]
