Karlsruher SC is a German football club based in the city of Karlsruher, Baden-Wurttemberg. They currently feature in the German Bundesliga.

Karlsruher were established on October 16,1952 when KFC Phoenix and VFB Muhlburg were merged together. In 1955 they beat Schalke 04 3-2 to win the German Cup and won the competition again the following year. They were also the Oberliga Sud champions in 1956,1958 and 1960 and finished runner-up in the German Cup in 1960.

Karlsruher were one of the 16 original teams to play in the inaugural season of the German Bundesliga in 1963-1964. But they struggled in the top flight and in the first five seasons, could never finish above 13th in the table. After five seasons in the first division, they suffered relegation to the second division and could return to the Bundesliga only in 1980 when they stayed there for four seasons and went down again.

Karlsruher managed to return to the Bundesliga in 1987 and established themselves as a top flight regular. In the 1993-1994 season they reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup and reached the third round of the competition in 1996-1997 and 1997-1998. But they soon started to struggle and were relegated from the first division at the end of the 1997-1998 season.

Karlsruher though were struggling financially and were dropped to the Regionalliga Sud (III). But they gradually recovered and gained promotion to the German Bundesliga in 2007.

Karlsruher play their home matches at the Wildparkstadion that can hold 32,306 spectators. They bear the nickname KSC.
