The Verbandsliga Württemberg is a German amateur football division administered by the Württemberg Football Association, one of the 21 German state football associations. Being the top flight of the Württemberg state association, the Verbandsliga is currently a level 6 division of the German football league system.

History[edit]

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 season 2009-10. 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[edit]

The Verbandsliga champions gain direct promotion to the Oberliga. The runners-up must play-off against the winner of the Verbandsliga Baden 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.

Usually, the teams ranked last four in the Verbandsliga are relegated to Landesliga directly. The winners of each of the four Landesliga divisions win direct promotion to the Verbandsliga. The fifth-last team of the Verbandsliga have to play-off against the best Landesliga runner-up for one spot in the Verbandsliga. The number of direct relegations can vary depending on the number of Württembergian teams relegating from the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg to the Verbandsliga.
