Form in 1906, club did not rise to prominence till after the Second World War, when it earned promotion to tier-two Landesliga Bayern in 1946. The team became the dominant side in the northern division of this league, finishing second in 1947 and 1948. For the 1948-49 season, league was reduced to a single division and the Club came third behind Jahn Regensburg and SpVgg Furth, who were both promoted to Oberliga Sud. Following season, when new 2 Oberliga Sud was to in form, finishing in the top-five was necessary to qualify but FCL only came tenth and had to remain in what was to become tier-three Amateurliga Bayern. The Club remain a strong side and come third once more in 1951. From 1953 onwards, Amateurliga was split into northern and southern groups and Lichtenfels became part of the north. It took part in the 1954 edition of the German amateur Football championship but was knocked out in the group stage. Second place finishes in 1954, 1956 and 1957 were prelude to the league championship in 1959-60 under player-manager Zeljko Cajkovski. The team then went on to face Schwaben Augsburg in the final of the Bavarian championship, which it won 5-3 in Augsburg. Through this performance, Club qualify for promotion round to the Second division but miss out to Borussia Fulda there. After this, Club's performances in the next two seasons dropped off, but it managed to finish sixth in 1963, when only the top-seven qualified for the new single-division Amateurliga Bayern. The club held top spot in the all-time table of this era of Bayernliga from 1945 to 1963, having spent 17 seasons at this level, more than any other club. In the new era of German Football, after the inception of the Bundesliga in 1963, Lichtenfels continued as a good side in the Amateurliga, finishing fourth in 1966 and 1969 as its best results. The 1969-70 season became another highlight in club history, finishing second, three points behind FC Wacker Munchen. This result qualified the team for the German amateur championship once more, where it was knocked out by VfL Neckarau in the quarter finals. The club's performances after this quickly slipped and in 1973, 17 place meant relegation from Bayernliga after 27 continued seasons. The club was never to return to this level. Lichtenfels became part of tier-four Landesliga Bayern-Nord from 1973 onwards, where it finished third in its first season. The Club achieved a number of upper table finishes but was relegated from the league in 1978 after coming last, 14 points clear of salvation. Its new league now is Bezirksliga Oberfranken West, fifth tier of league Football. It took until 1982 to recover from this fall, when it returned to the Landesliga. Six seasons of lower-table finishes followed before the club was relegate once more in 1988, now to the new Bezirksoberliga Oberfranken.
