SV Motor Cottbus-Saspow

This is a small but enthusiastic amateur club that plays in the Kreisliga Niederlausitz in the Spreewald area of eastern Germany. (I'm guessing that would be around the 8th division). They are currently interested in playing friendlies against all comers...

The club was founded back in 1903, although they couldn't find any documentation of the fact. An old member remembers that it was started as a Arbeiter Turn-und Sportverein back then.
