History change

Energie Cottbus was founded in 1966 but the team had a lot of other names. The history goes back to 1919 where the club was originally founded by coal miners as FSV Glückauf Brieske-Senftenberg. From 1924 to 1933 the club was called SV Sturm Grube Marga. In 1933 the club was banned by the Naziparty.

In 1949 the club was refounded as BSG Franz Mehring Grube, becoming BSG Aktivist Brieske-Ost in 1950.The club was re-named SC Aktivist Brieske-Senftenberg in 1954 and played in the DDR-Oberliga and was in the midfield of the table.In the early 1960s the club was relegated till Cottbus Bezirksliga. One squad formed a new team in 1963 SC Energie Cottbus, the reserve team formed BSG Aktivist Senftenberg. The club still exists as FSV Glückauf Brieske-Senftenberg today.

After the German reunification Energie Cottbus was one of the few teams which played successfully in the German professional football.
