Club Spiel und Sport Bremen was a German association football club established on 10 July 1896 at the Restaurant Wartburghalle in the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen.

The club was a founding member of the VBFB (Verbandes Bremer Fußball-Vereine or Federation of Bremen Football Clubs) in 1899 and, a year later in Leipzig, was also one of the original clubs of the DFB (Deutscher Fußball Bund or German Football Association). The club fielded strong sides early on, finishing third among nine clubs in their first year of play. SuS was vice-champion behind Bremer SC 1891 the next season and repeated as runners-up in 1905. Their fortunes declined from that point on until the club folded after a last place finish in 1909.
