Map of the five German Oberligas 1950 to 1963

The 1949–50 Oberliga was the fifth season of the Oberliga, the first tier of the football league system in West Germany. The league operated in six regional divisions, Berlin, North, South, Southwest (north and south) and West. The five league champions and runners-up as well as the third and fourth placed teams in the West and South and the third placed team in the Southwest and North entered the 1950 German football championship which was won by VfB Stuttgart. It was VfB Stuttgart's first-ever national championship.[2][3]

The 1949–50 season was the last with clubs from East Berlin in the Oberliga, with VfB Pankow and Union Oberschöneweide leaving the league at the end of the season, thereby ending unified German league football for the next four decades. Union Oberschöneweide was replaced by the West Berlin club Union 06 Berlin, formed by former Oberschöneweide players who had moved to the West.[4]

For the Oberliga Südwest, covering the whole of the French occupation zone in Germany, it was the last season of the league being divided into two regional divisions, north and south. The clubs from the southern division re-joined the Southern German Football Association at the end of seasons with two clubs entering the Oberliga Süd for the following season, three clubs the 2. Oberliga Süd and the rest being relegated to the Amateurligas.[5]

A similar-named league, the DDR-Oberliga, existed in East Germany, set at the first tier of the East German football league system. The 1949–50 DDR-Oberliga, the inaugural season of the league, was won by ZSG Horch Zwickau.[6]

Oberliga Nord[edit]

The 1949–50 season saw three new clubs promoted to the league, Hannover 96, Harburger TB and VfB Oldenburg, while Holstein Kiel was re-admitted after initially having been forcibly relegated during the previous season. The league's top scorer was Adolf Vetter of VfL Osnabrück with 28 goals, the third consecutive time he finished as top scorer.[1]
