The DFV then dissolved the national soccer leagues and founded the 15 district leagues as the third division in the league system. The clubs from the Cottbus regional football league previously played predominantly in the Brandenburg regional football class in 1951/52 .
The Cottbus district league was played in a round-robin tournament. In the first three seasons twelve teams played for the district championship. After the introduction of the 2nd GDR League in 1955, the Cottbus district league was only fourth class. From the season 1961/62 the district championship was held in two seasons of 13 teams each, the winners of both seasons played the district champions in two finals. With the dissolution of the second GDR league, the district leagues were from now on again in third class. In 1963/64 the number of teams per relay was increased by one. From 1964/65 the league was played in a group again, from the season 1966/67 the number of 16 participating teams, which was maintained until the end, was reached.
After the reunification of Germany , the resolution of the DFV was resolved at an Extraordinary Association Day on November 20, 1990 in Leipzig. The Brandenburg League was set up as a successor league as early as the 1991/92 season .
