Following several seasons as an "elevator club" moving frequently up and down between the Landesliga Südbaden (VI) and the Verbandsliga Südbaden (V), FV has advanced to the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg (V) following a second place Verbandsliga finish and successful promotion playoff in 2008.

The club played the next eight seasons in the Oberliga with an eighth place in 2012–13 as its best result but was relegated in 2015–16.
