Summary
SC Sportbrüder Leipzig was a German association football club from the city of Leipzig, Saxony and was notable as a predecessor side of VfB Leipzig, one of the founding member of the DFB (Deutsche Fußball Bund or German Football Association) at Leipzig in 1900. Established on 11 November, 1893, by 17-year-olds Johannes Kirmse and Albert Rößler, it was one of the earliest football clubs in the city, formed the same year as Leipzig BC 1893 and FC Lipsia 1893, and just one year after VfK Südwest Leipzig. These four clubs and Abteilung Bewegungsspiele der Leipziger Finkenschaft shared the Exerzierplatz, a former military parade ground in the city's Rosental neighbourhood as their ground until its closure in 1899.

SC became independent of the parent club on 26 May, 1896, being spurred on by a loss to Leizpig BC and the demanding training schedule being enforced by the athletics
