The club's greatest success has been to earn promotion to the tier four Regionalliga Südwest in 2017.



Formed in 1953 the club, then under the name of TuS Glaswerk Schott Mainz earned promotion to the tier-four 2. Amateurliga Rheinhessen in 1962. Its first season there was a success, coming third in the league but results declined from there on and, by 1969 the club was relegated again after coming last. In the next four decades the club played in local amateur football before returning to its former heights.[2]

Mainz began its rise through the league system in 2008 when it won the local Kreisliga championship, the first of four consecutive championships and promotions. In 2009 the club won the Bezirksklasse, followed by the Bezirksliga in 2010 and the Landesliga in 2011. Playing in the Verbandsliga Südwest for the next three seasons from 2011 Mainz came seventh in its first season there, followed by a runners-up finish in 2013. A Verbandsliga title in 2014 meant the club was promoted to the Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar for the first time.[2][3][4][5]
