Arminia Ludwigshafen is a German association football club from the Rheingönheim of the city of Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Rhineland-Palatinate.
The club was founded 1 September 1903 as 1. FC Arminia Rheingönheim and enjoyed some success in local level competition prior to the outbreak of World War I. Under the Nazis it was forced in to a merger with TSG Rheingönheim as part of a process of political consolidation that eliminated worker's clubs like 1. FC, as well as faith-based clubs, as being ideologically unacceptable to the regime. The club was reestablished as VfL Rheingönheim after World War II before once again becoming FC Arminia Rheingönheim on 22 October 1949. In 1969, the association adopted the name of the city of Ludwigshafen.
