Eintracht Wetzlar is a German association football club based in Wetzlar, Hesse.
Formed on 30 July 1905 as Wetzlarer Fußball Club, they merged with Wetzlarer Ballspielclub 1910 in 1927 to become Sportverein Wetzlar 05. From the early 30s until the early 40s, the team played second division football until a title win advanced them to the Gauliga Hessen-Nassau (I) for a single season.
Following World War II a number of local sides including SV were combined to create Sportgemeinde Eintracht Wetzlar which, for all but five seasons, played third division football as a lower table side until the formation of the Bundesliga – Germany’s first top-flight professional league – in 1963. SG carried on as a third tier club in the Oberliga Hessen until an 18th-place result in 1971 saw the side relegated. After thirty-six years in lower tier competition, Eintracht returned to the Oberliga Hessen (IV) in 2007 after capturing the second place in the Landesliga Hessen-Mitte (V), but this lasted only for one season, the club being relegated again.
The club made another return to the Hessenliga in 2010 but lasted for only two seasons before suffering another relegation.
