The Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein-Süd-West is the sixth tier of the German football league system and the second-highest league in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein, together with three other leagues at this level in the state. The league was formed at the end of the 2007-08 season, to replace the previously existing Bezirksoberligas at this level.
With the changes to the German football league system in 2008 that went alongside the introduction of the 3. Liga, four new Verbandsligas were formed in Schleswig-Holstein as the sixth tier of the league system, these being:
- Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein-Süd-West
- Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein-Süd-Ost
- Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein-Nord-West
- Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein-Nord-Ost
These four new Verbandsligas replaced the previously existing four Bezirksoberligas (BOL), who were, until then, divided into a northern, southern, eastern and western division. The Bezirksoberligas themselves had been formed in 1999. Other changes in the league system were the abolishing of the four Bezirksoberligas and the five Bezirksligas below them. Additionally, the regional alignment of the four new Verbandsligas differs from the Bezirksoberligas they replaced, making the change from one to the other more than just a renaming of leagues.
The new Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein-Süd-West was formed from one club of the Verbandsliga Schleswig-Holstein (V), two clubs from the former Bezirksoberliga Schleswig-Holstein-Süd (VI), four clubs from the Bezirksoberliga Schleswig-Holstein-West and the Bezirksoberliga Schleswig-Holstein-Ost each, one from the Bezirksliga Schleswig-Holstein-Ost (VII) and four clubs from the Bezirksliga Schleswig-Holstein-Süd (VII), three from the northern division and one from the southern division.
The league champions of each of the four Verbandsligas will earn promotion to the Schleswig-Holstein-Liga. Below the four Verbandsligas, 13 regional Kreisligas are placed. The bottom teams in the Verbandsligas will be relegated to the Kreisligas while the champions of those will earn promotion to the Verbandsligas. The Verbandsliga Süd-West covers the following three Kreise:
From the 2017-18 season onwards, the Verbandsligas will be contracted to 16 teams each and downgraded to seventh tier with the introduction of the new Landesliga Schleswig-Holstein (VI).
