FC Viktoria 1889 Berlin is a German association football club, formed in 2013 following a merger between BFC Viktoria 1889 and Lichterfelder FC,[1]

With 1,600 active members the club has the largest football department in Germany.[2]


FC Viktoria 1889 Berlin was formed in a merger of BFC Viktoria 1889, one of the oldest football clubs in Germany and Lichterfelder FC, a club which had gone through a number of name changes and mergers before. The new club has been playing in the Regionalliga Nordost since its formation, courtesy to a 2012–13 title in the NOFV-Oberliga Nord won by Viktoria.[3][4]

The club won the Berliner Landespokal, the local cup competition in Berlin, in 2014 and thereby qualified for the first round of the 2014–15 DFB-Pokal where it lost 0–2 to Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt.[5]
