Dissolution of the Oberliga[edit]

After the 1990–91 season, the DDR-Oberliga was dissolved, in context with German reunification. The teams were moved to the leagues in West Germany as follows: the top two teams joined the Fußball-Bundesliga and teams on ranks 3 to 6 joined the 2. Fußball-Bundesliga. The teams ranked 7th to 12th took part in a play-off for two additional 2nd Bundesliga spots. In addition the winners of the two NOFV-Liga (the former DDR-Liga) divisions took part. Play-off losers and the bottom three teams were moved to the NOFV-Oberliga.
