For most of its history FC Oberneuland played as a lower-tier local side until breaking out in the early 1990s and rising rapidly through a series of title wins. By 1994, the club had advanced to the Verbandsliga Bremen (V) and, after a second-place result, went on to capture the division title the following season. They were promoted to the Oberliga Niedersachsen/Bremen (IV) where they played until 2004 when they were dropped to fifth-tier play after league re-organization. Oberneuland returned to fourth division play in the Oberliga Nord in 2006 after their second Verbandsliga title.[1]

Bremer Pokal (Bremen Cup) wins in 1993 and 2003 led to the club's participation in the DFB-Pokal (German Cup) where they went out in the first round on both occasions. In 2008, a third Bremer Pokal win again put the team into the German Cup tournament where they beat TuS Koblenz in the opening round before going out to VfL Wolfsburg.

Before the end of the 2012–13 Regionalliga season, the club went bankrupt and following re-organisation was given a place in the sixth tier Landesliga 2013–14. Another relegation next which saw them concede the most goals (169) and earn the fewest points (5) in their existence dropped them to the seventh tier Bezirksliga. A championship in the Bezirksliga in 2015 took the club back up to the Landesliga where another title meant promotion to the Bremen-Liga.[2]
