The Berlin-Liga (VI) (formerly the Verbandsliga Berlin) is the highest league for football teams exclusively in the German capital. Since German reunification in 1990, it is the highest level of domestic football in Berlin, replacing the Amateur-Oberliga Berlin in this position. After the 2007–08 season the Verbandsliga was renamed "Berlin-Liga".

It is the sixth tier of the German football league system. Until the introduction of the 3. Liga in 2008 it was the fifth tier of the league system; until the introduction of the Regionalligen in 1994 the fourth tier.

Overview[edit]

The Berlin-Liga was formed in 1992 as the Verbandsliga Berlin from sixteen clubs in West and East Berlin. It was the first time since 1950, when the East-Berlin sides left the Oberliga Berlin to play in the East German football league system, that clubs from both halves of the city played in the same Berlin-wide league. It replaced the Landesliga Berlin as the fourth tier of the German league system in Berlin; the Landesliga had in the previous season been expanded to two divisions to integrate the clubs from East Berlin.

In the 1992–93 season, the league winner was promoted to the NOFV-Oberliga Mitte; since then the winner of the league each year is promoted to the NOFV-Oberliga Nord, together with the winners of the Brandenburg-Liga and the Verbandsliga Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, while the relegated teams go to the Landesliga Berlin Staffel 1 and Landesliga Berlin Staffel 2.
