History[edit]

The Oberliga Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar is one of seven Oberliga's in Germany. The league is a combination of the regional Football Federations Rhine County, Saarland and Southwest, the next league up is Regionalliga West. It was formed in 1978 out of the top teams of the Amateurligas Rheinland, Saarland and Südwest. Until 2008, when the 3rd Liga was introduced, the Oberliga was the fourth tier of the league system.
