The club was relegated again in , but made a quick return to what was now called the 2. Bundesliga after just one season spent in the third division.
Four years later, the club handily secured a place in the Bundesliga to start to play there in the —80 season. By the mids, SV Bayer 04 Leverkusen had played its way into the upper half of the league table and was well-established there by the end of the decade.
It was during this time, in , that the two-halves of the club that had parted ways over a half century earlier were re-united as TSV Bayer 04 Leverkusen e.
