SC Charlottenburg (commonly "SCC Berlin") is a German sports club based in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin and founded in 1902 as "Charlottenburger Sport-Club 1902". In 1911, they merged with "Sport-Club Westen 05" and changed their club colors from yellow and blue to black and white.



Through the early 20s the club went through other mergers and played football in the Oberliga Berlin-Brandenburg (I) as "Union-SCC Charlottenburg" - through its association with "FC Union Halsensee" (1898) - with their best result coming in 1921 when they finished as vice-champions after losing a two game final to "Norden-Nordwest Berlin" (2:4, 0:1). The club changed its name to "SC Charlottenburg" in 1927 and was relegated that same year. "SCC" returned to the Oberliga for a single season in 1928-29.

"Charlottenburg" played lower tier football throughout the 30s and most of the 40s. After World War II it was one of a number of sides that was part of a single association known as "SG Charlottenburg" representing the district. The combined side re-appeared in the top flight in the Oberliga Berlin in 1946, promptly capturing the division title.

"SG Charlottenburg" soon began to break up into its original separate clubs and in 1949 "SC Charlottenburg" re-emerged to play third tier football. They were promoted to the Amateurliga Berlin in 1950 for a three season turn before being relegated. In 1963, the same year that the Bundesliga, Germany's new professional league, was formed, "SCC" made a single season appearance in the Amateurliga before slipping from sight into lower division play.

"Charlottenburg" enjoyed a brief resurgence in the early 80s, rising quickly through the Landesliga Berlin (IV) and the Amateur Oberliga Berlin (III) to play the 1983-84 season in the 2. Bundesliga. That campaign ended in the failure of an 18th place finish and relegation. The team remained competitive, earning a second place result in the Oberliga in 1985 and another title in 1986. "SCC" took part in the subsequent promotion round for 2. Bundesliga play, but finished behind "St. Pauli" and "Rot-Weiß Essen", before crashing disastrously to a last-place finish the following season. The club competed in the third and fourth division through the balance of the 80s and well on into the 90s before finally slipping to the fifth tier Verbandsliga Berlin where they play today.

Other activities

Today one of Berlin's largest sports clubs, "SCC" offers a wide variety of activities to its membership including American football, baseball and softball, basketball, handball, ice hockey, field hockey, athletics, tennis, swimming, and volleyball.

"SCC"'s volleyball team captured nation titles in 1993, 2003, and 2004, as well as German Cups in 1994, 1996, and 2000.


The football side plays its home matches in the Mommsenstadion (capacity: 11,500, ~1,700 seats) which was built in 1930 and known originally as SCC-Stadion.
