HISTORY

Germania List was formed in 1900. The club did however not make a serious impact on national level until 1942, when it reached the final of the national championship and lost. It repeated this effort in 1949, when it made another losing finals appearance, this time against SC Neuenheim .

The club's greatest era came in the late 1970s and early 80s, when it reached and won three championship finals, in 1977, 1979 and 1981, beating the Heidelberger RK twice and the Heidelberger TV once in the final.

In recent seasons, the club was part of the Rugby-Bundesliga 's North/East division until 2001, when the league was restructured to a single-division format. It won its last national men's title to date in 2000, when it took out the German cup.

Germania earned promotion back to the Rugby-Bundesliga within two seasons in 2003, after winning their division, by beating South/West champions BSC Offenbach 22-14 in the 2nd Bundesliga final. It lasted at this level for only two seasons before suffering relegation back to the second division again in 2005.

The club missed out on Bundesliga promotion in 2007 when it lost the 2nd Bundesliga final 10-52 to RK Heusenstamm . Since then, the club's performances have declined to a point where it is not a promotion contender anymore.

A league reform in 2012 allowed the club promotion to the Bundesliga as the league was expanded from ten to 24 teams. Germania finished third in their group in the 2012-13 season and qualified for the north/east division of the championship round, where it came fifth. The club was knocked out in the first round of the play-offs after losing 103–10 to RG Heidelberg .

In 2013–14 the team qualified for the championship round and the play-offs once more, losing 31–22 to TSV Handschuhsheim in the first round. In the 2014–15 season the club finished third in the north-east championship group but was knocked out of the first round of the play-offs after a 20–24 loss to TSV Handschuhsheim. In the 2015–16 season List came second in the north/east division of the Rugby-Bundesliga but lost to Heidelberger RK in the semi-finals of the play-off.
