Aue became part of the new 3. Liga in the 2008 season. It finished runner-up in the league in its second season there, earning promotion back to the 2. Bundesliga. After a fifth-place finish in its first season back, the club has struggled against relegation, finishing in the lower third of the table each season since.
Since 2008 the club's reserve team, now the FC Erzgebirge Aue II, played in the tier five NOFV-Oberliga Süd with a fifth-place finish in 2014 as ist best result. At the end of the 2014–15 season the team was withdrawn from competitive football despite finishing eight in the league.
In the combined football leagues of the newly united Germany, Aue began play in the NOFV-Oberliga Süd (IV). With the establishment of the Regionalliga Nordost (III) in 1994, the club qualified for the new league. The club was moved to the Regionalliga Nord in 2000, and after a surprising league title there in 2003, it advanced to the 2. Bundesliga where it delivered mid-table performances in its first three seasons, but suffered relegation back to the third tier in 2008.
