The footballers first rose above amateur level in Middle Franconia when they earned promotion to the Landesliga Bayern-Mitte (V) in 2004. The enjoyed a successful 2006–07 campaign that saw them beat FC Augsburg II 3–0 on their way to a 1–0 win over Würzburger FV in the final of the Bavarian Cup. This earned the club an appearance in the opening round of the DFB-Pokal (German Cup) where they were eliminated 0–2 by Bundesliga side Arminia Bielefeld.

In the 2007–08 season, a second place in the Landesliga allowed the club to move up to the Oberliga Bayern. Like with their promotion in 2004, they finished runners-up to the FSV Erlangen-Bruck.

SVS experienced a difficult 2008–09 season and had to continue its fight for Bayernliga survival in the post-season, having finished on equal points with Würzburger FV (14th) and TSV Rain am Lech (16th) and therefore requiring a set of deciders to be played. After losing to Rain 5–1 and beating Würzburg 4–0, the team had to face FC Affing in the promotion/relegation round. A 3–0 victory over Affing put the club into the final, where it faced SpVgg Landshut and won 1–0, retaining its Bayernliga status.[1]

At the end of the 2011–12 season the club managed to finish in the top nine of the Bayernliga and thereby directly qualified for the new tier four Regionalliga Bayern,[2] where it since plays.[3]

After three seasons in the league with a seventh place in 2014 as its best result the club finished seventeenth in 2014–15 and was relegated from the league but won the Bayernliga Nord in 2015–16 and made a direct return to the Regionalligam where it played until relegation in 2018.
