FC Astoria Walldorf is a German football club from the town of Walldorf, Baden-Württemberg.

__TOC__

History

The club was formed on 15 February 1995 through the union of the "1. FC 08 Walldorf" and the football department of "SG Walldorf Astoria 02". The new club advanced to the Verbandsliga Nordbaden (V) in 2001. Winning the Verbandsliga in 2007, the club was promoted to the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg.

Like "TSG 1899 Hoffenheim" the club is supported by Dietmar Hopp, the founder of software maker SAP. Hopp initiated negotiations to merge "FC Astoria Walldorf", "TSG Hoffenheim", and "SV Sandhausen" to create "FC Heidelberg 06" with the long-term objective of reaching the Bundesliga, Germany's first division league. The talks were abandoned in 2005 due to the resistance of the latter two clubs, and the failure to agree on whether the new side's stadium should be located in Heidelberg or Eppelheim.
