HistoryEdit

 
League performance of Viktoria Berlin since 1945.

FC Viktoria 1889 Berlin was formed in a merger of BFC Viktoria 1889, one of the oldest football clubs in Germany, and Lichterfelder FC, a club which had gone through a number of name changes and mergers before.

Since the merger, Viktoria Berlin has been playing in the Regionalliga Nordost, courtesy of a 2012–13 title in the NOFV-Oberliga Nord won by BFC Viktoria 1889.[3][4]

The club won the Berliner Landespokal, the local cup competition in Berlin, in 2014 and thereby qualified for the first round of the 2014–15 DFB-Pokal where it lost 2–0 to the Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt.[5]
