BSG Robotron Regular T-Shirt
Officially named BSG Robotron “Ernst Thälmann” Sömmerda – the name of the pre-war KPD (German Communist Party) leader having been shoehorned into what was already an unwieldy name – the club crest would now incorporate the stylish yet simple Robotron logo.
The change of name and apparent endorsement by the ruling SED would not change much for the club, however. Robotron achieved an eighth-placed finish in 1977/78 before once again slipping down into the third tier the following season having finished on a dismal eleven points from their twenty-two matches. They had spent seven years in the Liga Staffel E, which would constitute their longest spell in the second tier.
The 1970s came to an end with Robotron back in the district leagues, and a fourth spot in 1979/80 was followed by a fifth place finish in 1980/81 and a second-place in 1981/82, which saw them pipped by TSG Ruhla on goal difference. Living up to their reputation as something of a yo-yo team, Robotron clinched their fourth Bezirksliga Erfurt title the follow year with forty-eight points from an available sixty – racking up ninety-two goals in the process – to secure a place in the Liga for the third time.
