The Landesliga Bayern-Südwest (English: State league Bavaria-Southwest) is currently the sixth tier of the German football league system in south western Bavaria and the third tier of the Bavarian football league system.

It is one of five Landesligas in Bavaria, the other four being the Landesliga Südost, Landesliga Mitte, Landesliga Nordost and Landesliga Nordwest. The league champion automatically qualifies for the Bayernliga, the runners-up needs to compete with the runners-up of the other four Landesligas and a number of Bayernliga teams for another promotion spot.

The league replaced the Landesliga Bayern-Süd at this level, with the former having existed from 1963 to 2012. However, while the Landesliga Süd covered all of Bavarian Swabia and Upper Bavaria the new league only covers Bavarian Swabia and western Upper Bavaria.[1][2]



The Landesligas from 2012 onwards.

The Bavarian football federation carried out drastic changes to the league system at the end of the 2011–12 season. With the already decided introduction of the Regionalliga Bayern from 2012–13, it also placed two Bayernligas below the new league as the new fifth tier of the German league system, splitting the previously single division league into a northern and a southern group. Below those, five Landesligas instead of the existing three were set, which were geographically divided to limit travel and increase the number of local derbies.[3]

Clubs from three different league tiers were able to qualify for the new league. From the Landesliga level, specifically the Landesliga Bayern-Süd, the clubs placed ninth to 15th had the opportunity to qualify for the Bayernliga through play-offs. Those clubs who failed to qualify for the Bayernliga were grouped in the Landesliga. The Landesliga clubs placed 16th, 17th and 18th automatically went to the Landesliga. The Bezirksoberliga (BOL) champions also had the chance to qualify for the Bayernliga. Those clubs who failed went to the Landesliga, alongside the BOL teams placed second to sixth. The teams placed seventh to tenth in Swabia and seventh to twelfth in Upper Bavaria entered a play-off with the Bezirksliga champions for the remaining Landesliga spots. The regulations also allowed for Bavarian clubs playing outside the Bavarian league system to join the Landesliga should they fulfil the qualifying norms. As FV Illertissen, playing in the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg, opted to join the new Regionalliga Bayern its reserve side, finishing fourth in the Landesliga Württemberg 2,[4] was allowed to enter the Landesliga Südwest.[1]

The league started out with 18 clubs in its inaugural season, the clubs coming from the following leagues:



The opening game of the new league took place on 20 July 2012 when TSV Mindelheim hosted TSV Ottobeuren and won 4-1.[5] At the end of the 2012–13 season, league champions FC Pipinsried were directly promoted while runners-up SV Raisting earned promotion via the promotion round.[6] At the other end of the table, TSV Mindelheim, SV Manching and FC Königsbrunn were directly relegated,[7] while FC Memmingen II and TSV Bobingen had to enter the promotion/relegation round with the Bezirksliga runners-up. Bobingen was relegated after losing to SV Türkgücü-Ataspor München while Memmingen maintained its league place after overcoming TSV Wertingen.[8] For the 2013–14 season the league received four of the five teams relegated from the Bayernliga Süd in 2013, TSV Aindling, TSV Gersthofen, SC Fürstenfeldbruck and TSV Kottern. Additionally, four clubs were promoted to the league, SC Bubesheim, TSV Friedberg, SC Oberweikertshofen and Sportfreunde Dinkelsbühl, with the later becoming the first Middle Franconian team to enter the league. Apart from the four relegated sides the league also lost TSV Dachau and FC Gerolfing who moved to the Südost division after the 2012–13 season.[9]


The league is played in a home-and-away format with the league champion being directly promoted to the Bayernliga. The runners-up enters a promotion round with the other four Landesliga runners-up and the Bayernliga teams placed just above the direct relegation ranks, 15th and 16th in the south and 15th in the north, for additional spots in this league. For 2016–17, the bottom (i.e., 17th) team from the Landesliga is directly relegated to the Bezirksligas. The teams placed 15th to 16th have to play-off with the Bezirksliga runners-up for their place in the Landesliga.[10][11]
