HistoryEdit

For most of its history the club has been a non-descript amateur side in local Bavarian football. The club's most successful era began in 1970 when it earned promotion to the tier four Landesliga Bayern-Mitte after a championship in the Bezirksliga Mittelfranken-Süd.[2] Roth immediately became a top side in this league, finishing fourth in its first season there. A second place followed in 1972 and a league championship the season after. The later earned the club promotion to the Bayernliga, the third tier of the German football league system in Bavaria.[3]

TSV spend the 1973–74 season in the Bayernliga but finished last and was immediately related again, never to return to this level again.[4]

Back in the Landesliga the club could not perform on the same level as before the promotion, instead constantly struggling against relegation. Four seasons at this level followed in which a thirteenth place in 1977 was the club's best result but relegation back to the Bezirksliga followed the year after.[3] The club earned promotion to the Bezirksoberliga Mittelfranken for a season in 1990, a league introduced in 1988, after runners-up finish in the Bezirksliga Mittelfranken-Süd. Between 1999 and 2001 the club dropped even further, to the Kreisliga, but made a recovery after three seasons there.[2]

The club experienced a revival in the last few seasons of its existence, earning promotion to the Bezirksoberliga Mittelfranken in 2006 and immediately becoming a top side in this league. After the merger in 2008 the new club, TSG Roth, inheritated the old club's league place.[5]
