|Full name||Deutsche Jugendkraft Vilzing 1967 e. V.|
|League||Bayernliga Süd (V)|
The DJK Vilzing is a German association football club from the village of Vilzing, located near Cham, Bavaria. DJK stands for Deutsche Jugendkraft, a sports organisation associated with the Catholic Church.
The club's greatest success came in 2014 when it qualified for the southern division of the Bayernliga, the fifth tier of the German football league system.
For much of the first 30 years of its history the club had been a non-descript amateur side in local Bavarian football until a championship in the Bezirksliga Oberpfalz-Süd in 1998, a league which the club had played in since 1995, earned it promotion to the Bezirksoberliga.
Playing in the Bezirksoberliga Oberpfalz for two seasons from 1998 to 2000 DJK came fourth in its first season there, followed by a league championship and promotion the year after. A six-year stint in the Landesliga Bayern-Mitte followed in which the club, after three difficult first seasons finished in the top four in 2004 and 2005. However, in the 2005–06 season Vilzing came sixteenth and was relegated back to the Bezirksoberliga.
Another league championship the following year saw the club move back up to the Landesliga and come third in its first season back. Vilzings results gradually worsened season after season, resulting in another relegation from the league in 2011. The club played the 2011–12 season in the Bezirksoberliga once more, which was also going to be the last for this league. The Bezirksoberligas were disbanded in 2012 and the Landesligas expanded from three to five divisions, allowing the club to move up to the Landesliga once more despite finishing only fourth.
DJK entered the Landesliga Bayern-Mitte once more but this league now covered a much smaller area then the previous league which had existed from 1963 to 2012. In its inaugural season the club came second but failed to achieve Bayernliga qualification in the promotion round. The second season saw Vilzing repeat this result but this time it succeeded in the promotion round and qualified for the southern division of the Bayernliga for 2014–15. The club finished in fifth place in its first-ever Bayernliga season.
