SV Lohhof is a German association football club from the Lohhof district of Unterschleißheim, Bavaria, north of Munich. The footballers are part of a sports club that includes departments for athletics, badminton, gymnastics, martial arts, swimming, table tennis, tennis, volleyball, as well as fitness and rehabilitation programs.

History

Established sometime in 1930 as Sportverein Lohhof, the football team first came to notice in the early 1990s with an advance to the Bayernliga.[1] After four seasons in tier IV play, SV won its way to the Regionalliga Süd (III) after a second-place finish and successful promotion playoff in 1994. They took part in group play for the national amateur championship, but were quickly eliminated. An unsuccessful Regionalliga campaign followed and the team was sent back down. In 1999, Lohhof took the Bayernliga (IV) championship to return to third division play for the 1999–2000 season.

The club then suffered through disastrous string of reverses; they finished last in the Regionalliga in 1999–2000, 18th of 20 in the Bayernliga in 2000–01, and last in the Landesliga Bayern-Süd (V) in 2001–02. Their slide continued downward through the Bezirksoberliga Oberbayern (VI) and then withdrawing to the Kreisklasse München-3 (IX) in 2003. They won the division title there in 2006 to advance to the Kreisliga Oberbayern, München-1 (VIII) where they finished 12th in 2007–08[2] and only through a 4–2 win in the final relegation match did the SVL archive to stay in the Kreisliga for another season. The club's result in the league improved after that to the point where it won the Kreisliga in 2013 and earned promotion to the Bezirksliga.
