The origins of the club date back to 1895 in the city of Düsseldorf in North Rhine-Westphalia. The original name was TV Flingern 1895, later it also merged with another club and has had its current name since 1919. It is a sports club which, in addition to football, also runs athletics, triathlon, handball and other clubs.
The club's first season in the Bundesliga was 1966/67 and then its last promotion was in the 2018/19 season. The club has travelled a lot between divisions and is not a regular participant in the Bundesliga. It does have one title from Germany's top league, but that dates back to 1933, long before the format of the league as we know it today, i.e. before the Bundesliga was formed. The club also has the DFB-Pokal Cup to its credit, winning it twice in the late 1970s.
