The Fußball- Bezirksoberliga
(English: Football County Premier League) was the seventh tier of the German football league system
German football league system
in the state of Bavaria
from 1988 to 2012. The Bezirksoberligas have also existed in other states of Germany, like Hesse
and Lower Saxony. In Hesse, they were renamed to Gruppenligas, in Lower Saxony
Lower Saxony
to Landesligas. At the end of the 2011–12 season, Bavaria
abolished its Bezirksoberligas, too, leaving Germany
without such a league in senior men's football unless another federation would opt to rename or introduce a league.[1][2][3]

Overiew[edit] In Niedersachsen[edit] With the introduction of the 3rd Liga
3rd Liga
and the disbanding of the Oberliga Nord
Oberliga Nord
in 2008, the two Verbandsligas in Niedersachsen became the highest amateur leagues for the state. Accordingly, the two leagues were renamed to Oberliga, their new names being:

Oberliga Niedersachsen-Ost Oberliga Niedersachsen-West

Below the two former Verbandsligas, the four existing Bezirksoberligas now became the sixth tier of the league system. On 17 May 2010, the Lower Saxony
Lower Saxony
football association decided to rename the four Bezirksoberligas to Landesligas from the 1 July 2010. This change in name came alongside the merger of the two Oberliga divisions above it into the Niedersachsenliga.[4] In Bavaria[edit] In the state of Bavaria, seven Bezirksoberligas were introduced in 1988, each covering one of the seven Regierungsbezirke:

Schwaben Bezirksoberliga
Oberbayern Bezirksoberliga
Niederbayern Bezirksoberliga
Oberpfalz Bezirksoberliga
Mittelfranken Bezirksoberliga
Unterfranken Bezirksoberliga

These seven leagues formed the seventh tier of the German league system in Bavaria, below the three Bavarian Landesligas. The leagues were abolished at the end of the 2011–12 season. In Hesse[edit] In the state of Hesse, the previously existing Bezirksoberligas have been renamed to Gruppenligas at the end of the 2007–08 season. In Schleswig-Holstein[edit] In the state of Schleswig-Holstein, the Landesligas were renamed to Bezirksoberligas in 1999. In 2008, the Bezirksoberligas were then renamed to Verbandsligas. Currently, there are no Bezirksoberligas in the state any more. References[edit]
