The FC 09 Olympia Lampertheim is a football club established in 1909 from the südhessischen Lampertheim near Mannheim . The sporting successes of footballers go back a few decades. In the two decades after World War II, the team in the upper classes played the Hessian football, won in 1948 the Hesse Cup and in 1951 and 1952 champion of the first amateur league Hesse . The club was able to hold its own in the top amateur league for six years, followed by a gradual departure from national football events. Since the late 1980s, FC Olympia 09 has only been represented in the district and district leagues of the Bergstrasse football district.
FC Olympia Lampertheim was founded on October 17, 1909 and two years later joined the South German soccer association VSFV . In the very first season the FCO was champion of the C-class and the following year also the B-class, playing in the A-class Mittelrheingau, the second highest league at the time. After the First World War Lampertheim became district champion of the Neckar District in 1923/24 and established himself in the second highest level in the following years up to the Second World War.
The successful era of the club began in the years after the Second World War. Immediately after the end of the war, all clubs were dissolved and FC Olympia initially only existed as a division of the Lampertheim sports community , but became independent again in 1946. About the district and district championship one soon approached the Landesliga Hessen, the second division below the Oberliga Süd in the post-war years. The club from the asparagus city achieved its first major success in the regional cup competition, the Hessen Cup . In its third edition in 1948, the team trained by Karl Vetter around Georg Schollmeier, Fritz Lauthenbach, Eugen Leuthner, Heinrich Keck and Jakob Bienefeld sat in the final against the national divisionHessen Kassel won 3-2 and thus secured the first national title in the club's history. In the following season, 1948/49, FC Olympia failed in the promotion round to the national league at VfB Friedberg , a year later the blue-white-reds were able to qualify again for the promotion round. With only two wins in six games they would have failed again, but with the introduction of the II. Division as a new substructure for the Oberliga Süd, Olympia Lampertheim subsequently qualified at the "green table" for promotion to the - now third-class - 1st amateur league Hessen .
The opening game of the 1st amateur league against Rot-Weiss Frankfurt attracted 5,000 visitors, and with the 2-0 win in this game, the newcomer began a never-expected series of wins. In the entire preliminary round only one of 19 games was lost and with a 7-2 win over Hermannia Kassel , FC Olympia ended the round as Hessian champions. In the promotion round to the 2nd League South, however, the South Hesse failed significantly, with a 3-0 over the Mannheim neighbors ASV Feudenheimonly managed one victory. In the 1951/52 round, the FCO, now under Willi Pennig as trainer, was able to defend its title and thus made the second attempt at the 2nd division. But as in the previous year, the Hessian national champion was only able to beat one of the five opponents, 1. FC Amberg , in the promotion round . In the following season Olympia Lampertheim only finished 8th, and after six years of membership in the Hessian House of Lords, after the season 1955/56, under coach Heinz Baas , they were relegated to the 2nd amateur league.
When the group league was introduced in Hessen in 1965 as the new substructure of the Hessen league, Olympia Lampertheim initially missed the qualification and found itself at the district level. Under coach Günther Ratzel , an ex-Waldhof player, the promotion succeeded immediately, but the league was missed in the first year and it took until 1972 until the return to the group league was successful. In the fourth division, FC Olympia occupied - with the exception of a third place in the promotion year - always midfield until you had to go to the district league at the end of the 1979/80 round and then passed through to the district league A. The reverse was achieved in 1982/83 under Timo Zahnleiter and 1983/84 under Wolfgang GayerWith two promotions in a row, a return to the regional league, but not least due to the sharply decreasing number of spectators, Olympia Lampertheim was unable to maintain this level for long and has only played at the district and district level since the late 1980s, most recently in the district C. 
At times there was also a boxing and athletics department in the club , as can be seen from the career around the soccer field that still exists today. In 1982 a women's department was established. Today Olympia Lampertheim is a pure football club.
