, they have not been able to compete effectively at the Regionalliga level. The club is also suffering financially, and unable to find a strong sponsor, is facing bankruptcy.Eschborn
took part in the 2005–06 German Cup
tournament on the strength of their championship in the Oberliga Hessen (IV) the previous season, but were eliminated in the opening round by 1. FC Nuremberg
