FC Strausberg, simply known as Strausberg or FCS, is a German association football club based in Strausberg, the largest city in Märkisch-Oderland, Brandenburg. The club, that plays home games at the "Energiearena", has senior (players aged 35 years and over)[2] and junior[3] branches, including children.[4]


The football club was founded in 1956 as Vorwärts Strausberg and it has mainly played in regional football leagues. Few years after German reunification, in 1995, the club was re-created with the current name, as the football department of the "KSC Strausberg",[5] the local association regarding sport and culture.

Since 2005, Strausberg played in the Brandenburg-Liga, which was held in the following years with midfield places. In the season 2012-13 it won the championship and reached the NOFV-Oberliga Nord.[6][7]
