The club was founded on 14 June 1947 in a merger of local clubs KTSC 1860, T.G. and VfL 06/07 . Initially it was named Sportfreunde Rot-Weiß Koblenz, being prohibited by the French occupation authorities to carry the title Turnen (English: Gymnastics) in its name or have a gymnastics department. In 1951, after this ban had been lifted, the club adopted the current name.
Throughout its history the club has been playing in local amateur leagues until a league championship in the tier seven Bezirksliga Mitte in 2010–11 took it up to the highest league of the Rhineland Football Association, the Rheinlandliga. After finishing in the top four in its first three seasons Koblenz came only tenth in 2014–15 but won the league the following season, 2015–16.
The club's honours:
|2010–11||Bezirksliga Mitte||1st ↑|
|2018–19||Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar||1st ↑|
- With the introduction of the 3. Liga in 2008 as the new third tier, below the 2. Bundesliga, all leagues below dropped one tier.
