SpVgg Greuther Fürth is a German association football club based in Fürth, Bavaria. The club was formed when the senior football side of newcomer Turn- und Sportverein Vestenbergsgreuth joined traditional club Spielvereinigung Fürth on 1 July 1996. SpVgg is an abbreviation of the German term "Spielvereinigung" – or "playing association" – a traditional term used for a team or club engaged in sports other than gymnastics.
In the 2012–13 season, the club played in the Bundesliga for the first time, having won promotion from the 2. Bundesliga, but was uncompetitive at this level and promptly relegated again.
