History

The club's reserve team for the most part of its history played in the lower amateur leagues. It made a three-season appearance in the tier four Verbandsliga Sudbaden from 1983 to 1986, with a third place in 1985 as its best result, but then took until 1994 to return to this league. In 1998 the team won promotion to the Oberliga Baden-Wurttemberg after a league championship in the Verbandsliga.

SC Freiburg II spent the next ten seasons at this level as an upper table side, never finishing outside the top seven, before another league championship in 1998 took the team to the Regionalliga Sud. After four seasons at this league the team became part of the new Regionalliga Sudwest in 2012. After a seventh place in its first season in the league the team finished runner-up in 2013–14 but declined the right to take part in the promotion round to the 3. Liga and instead remained in the Regionalliga. At the end of the 2015–16 season Freiburg was relegated back to the Oberliga.

A South Baden Cup win in 2001 qualified it for the first round of the 2001–02 DFB-Pokal, the German Cup, where it lost to FC Schalke 04.

After a 1–1 draw vs. SV Elversberg on 5 June 2021, SC Freiburg II confirmed their promotion to the 2021–22 3. Liga.
