History

The Verbandsliga Württemberg was introduced along with the superordinate Oberliga Baden-Württemberg in 1978 as a merger between the Amateurliga Nordwürttemberg and the Amateurliga Schwarzwald-Bodensee. The top five teams of both divisions were promoted to the new Oberliga while the teams ranked six to twelve remained at Verbandsliga level. Both 13th ranked teams had to play a decider for the last Verbandsliga spot. All other team were relegated to the Landesliga.

Since its introduction, the Verbandsliga always was at the top of the Württemberg football league system and was set at level 4 of the German football league system originally. After the introduction of both the Regionalliga Süd in 1994 and of the 3. Liga in 2008, as of today has been downgraded to level 6 of the system.

There are some clubs from western Bavaria playing in the Württemberg football league system. At last the SpVgg Au/Iller played in the Verbandsliga during the 2009-10 season. Au/Iller is a part of the town Illertissen. The FV Illertissen also played in the Verbandsliga and even gained promotion to Oberliga in 2008 before leaving the Württemberg system in 2012 by joining the Bavarian Football Association upon introduction of the Regionalliga Bayern.

Promotion and relegation

The Verbandsliga champions gain direct promotion to the Oberliga. The runners-up must play-off against the winner of the Verbandsliga Nordbaden versus Südbaden runners-up series for one additional promotion. In 1981 no extra spot and in 1994 three extra spots were available due to league format changes.

The number of direct relegations can vary depending on the number of Württembergian teams relegating from the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg to the Verbandsliga.
