Regionalliga SüdEdit

Five teams were due to be relegated, but Stuttgarter Kickers and Sportfreunde Siegen were reprieved because two of the relegated teams from the 2. Bundesliga, SSV Reutlingen and SV Waldhof Mannheim, could not achieve a Regionalliga license, and dropped another level, to the Oberliga.
