SC Paderborn 07 is a German football club based in Paderborn, North Rhine-Westphalia, currently playing in the 3. Liga.


The club was formed out of the 1985 merger of "FC Paderborn" and "TuS Schloß Neuhaus" as "TuS Paderborn-Neuhaus" and took on its current, shorter name in 1997. The Neuhaus club was founded in 1907 as "SV 07 Neuhaus" which was joined by the local side "TuS 1910 Sennelager" to become "TuS Schloss Neuhaus" in 1970. The Neuhaus and Paderborn teams played as tier III sides for most of their histories, as has the unified club. Today "Paderborn" plays its home matches at the paragon arena.

The club is known for its involvement in a notorious German Cup contest played against First Bundesliga side "Hamburger SV" on August 21, 2004. "Paderborn" upset "HSV" 4:2 and it was revealed in January 2005 that the match referee, Robert Hoyzer, had taken money from Croatian gambling syndicates to fix the match using two wrongly awarded penalties and a questionable red card. It soon developed that the game was only one of a number in which game officials, coaches, and players accepted payment to influence the outcome. The resulting scandal was to become the biggest in German football in over thirty years, and was a major embarrassment to the country during its preparations to host the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
