Description:
SG Olympia Leipzig is a German association football club based in Leipzig, Saxony.

History

The club was founded 10 June 1896 as FV Olympia and was a founding member of the German Football Association () in Leipzig in 1900. In 1903, the club joined FC Lipsia, which had also been a founding member, to form Neuer Leipziger Ballspielverein Olympia which was shortened to Ballspielverein Olympia.

They were briefly united in 1917 with Leipziger BC 1883 to form the wartime side SG LBC Olympia 1896 but re-emerged at the end of World War I in 1918 as BV Olympia. In 1926 they played as BSV Olympia-Germania until re-named VfL Olympia 96 in 1938.

After World War II Allied authorities ordered the dissolution of existing organizations in Germany, including sports and football clubs. In the fall of 1945 the creation of new clubs was allowed and the team was re-formed as ZSG Industrie-Mitte. Playing in the Soviet-occupied part of the country that eventually became East Germany, the club underwent frequent name changes and mergers as was common there. In quick succession the team was known as Fahrzeugbau Leipzig-Mitte (1947), BSG Gohlis-Süd (1948), and then BSG Lok Nord (1951).
