Brandenburg-Süd 05

This club was founded in 1945 as SG Brandenburg-West, and was intended as a continuation of the old club Brandenburger SC 05, which had modest success in the pre-war period. (They managed to play in the Gauliga Brandenburg/Berlin from 1937-42). However, being commies, they changed the colors from green-white to red-white :)

In 1948 they became known as BSG Traktorenwerke, and were soon merged with BSG Ernst-Thälmann and BSG Konsum. to become BSG Motor Süd, as they were known throughout the GDR period.

Aside from a couple appearances in the 2nd division of the old GDR leagues, BSG Motor was completely obscured by the local rival, BSG Stahl. In fact, it has not been until recent times that BSC Süd has emerged from the shadow and actually posted good results.

While BSC Süd 05 has advanced somewhat, their rivals Motor/Stahl have fallen further down the ladder. Local politicians and other weasels have attempted on several recent occasions (last in May 2007) to force a merger between the two clubs. Luckily, the members have eventually resisted, and Brandenburg remains with the two rivals.
