PPV famously told us that BK Hacken (a Swedish club) was named after a hedge.

There are loads in Central and Eastern Europe. For example; in Slovakia, there's Dunajska (ie Danube) Streda and Tatran Presov, named after the Tatra mountains. River names in Poland - Wisla (ie Vistula) Krakow and Odra (Oder) Opole. Karpaty Lvov from the Ukraine are named after the Carpathians.

There is an ice hockey team in Slovenija named after Triglav (the "national" mountain that features on the flag), and they probably have a football section.

Montenegro is of course a national team that qualifies.

But are Arges Pitesti named after the river or the county which is named after the river?

(Genuine question, I have no idea)

Hmm; I'd assumed it was the river but have no definitive confirmation.

Apparently the football team were founded in 1953, while the current county system didn't come into being until Ceausescu introduced them in 1968, so that answers that question.

Furtho, no, I cannot think of any Scandinavian clubs named after geography.

Cardross Rock are a former successful Scottish Amateur team named after a non-existant geographical feature.

They were part of Dumbarton Rock FC - named after the large rock where Dumbarton Castle sits. Cardross Rock split off from Dumbarton Rock and moved to the nearby village of Cardross, where there is no rock.

They later merged with Knightswood Amateurs to form Drumchapel United.

Freie Turnschaft Eider Büdelsdorf, who come from Büdelsdorf and play in the Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein, owe the third word in their name to the River Eider.
