Bezirksoberliga Oberpfalz

The Bezirksoberliga Oberpfalz was the seventh tier of the German football league system in the Bavarian Regierungsbezirk of Upper Palatinate (German: Oberpfalz). Until the introduction of the 3. Liga in 2008 it was the sixth tier of the league system, until the introduction of the Regionalligas in 1994 the fifth tier.

The league was disbanded at the end of the 2011-12 season, when major changes to the Bavarian football league system were carried out. Above the Bezirksoberligas, the Landesligas were expanded in number from three to five divisions and the Bezirke have two to three regional leagues, the Bezirksligas, as its highest level again, similar to the system in place until 1988.[1]


The Bezirksoberligas in Bavaria were introduced in 1988 to create a highest single-division playing level for each of the seven Bezirke.

Before the introduction of the Bezirksoberligas, the Bezirksliga was the level of play below the Landesliga. The Bezirksliga Oberpfalz-Nord and Oberpfalz-Süd fed the Landesliga Bayern-Mitte as they afterwards fed the Bezirksoberliga Oberpfalz.

The winner of the Bezirksoberliga Oberpfalz, like the winner of the Bezirksoberliga Niederbayern and Bezirksoberliga Mittelfranken, was directly promoted to the Landesliga Bayern-Mitte. The second placed teams out of those leagues played-off for another promotion spot with the 15th placed team out of the Landesliga for the last spot there. However, in some years additional promotion places were available in the Landesliga.

The three bottom teams of the Bezirksoberliga were relegated to the Bezirksliga, the team just above those faced a play-off against the second placed Bezirksliga teams.

With the league reform at the end of the 2011-12 season, which includes an expansion of the number of Landesligas from three to five, the Bezirksoberligas were disbanded. Instead, the Bezirksligas took the place of the Bezirksoberligas below the Landesligas once more.[2]

The clubs from the Bezirksoberliga joined the following leagues:[1]

  • Champions : Promotion round to the Bayernliga, winners to the Bayernliga, losers to the Landesliga.
  • Teams placed 2nd to 6th: Directly qualified to the Landesliga.
  • Team placed 7th : Two additional Landesliga places to be determined in a play-off round with the Bezirksliga champions, losers enter Bezirksliga.
  • Teams placed 8th to 19th: Directly relegated to Bezirksliga.
