After twice finishing as vice-champions in the Verbandsliga and failing to win promotion to the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg (IV) in subsequent playoffs, TSG finally claimed the league title in 2008 and advanced to what has become a fifth tier competition following the introduction of the 3. Liga. They won the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg in 2018 to gain promotion to the Regionalliga Südwest.
