The Rugby Regionalliga is the third-highest level of Germany's Rugby union league system, organised by the German Rugby Federation. Its set below the 2nd Rugby-Bundesliga. It is organised in eight regional divisions.

Since 2010, the Regionalliga is only the fourth level of play in Southern Germany, since the interception of the 3rd Liga South/West, which covers the same states as the 2nd Rugby-Bundesliga South/West above it except Bavaria.

History[edit]

The Regionalligas form the third tier of German rugby union since the intereception of the 2nd Rugby-Bundesliga in the early 1990s. Before that, the league was the second tier, below the Rugby-Bundesliga. Below the Regionalliga sits the Rugby-Verbandsliga, however, in some regions, the Regionalliga is the lowest division and no Verbandsliga exists.

The eight leagues cover the following states:

The champions of the eight leagues play-off at the end of the season for 2nd Bundesliga promotion. In 2007-08, the three northern champions from the Regionalligas East, North and Lower Saxony plus the runners-up from East determined two promoted teams to the 2nd Bundesliga North/East.

The five southern champions determined one promoted team between each other, to the 2nd Bundesliga South/West.
