2018–19 Regionalliga

FormatEdit

A new promotion format will be used this season. The champions of the Regionalliga Nordost and Südwest will be promoted directly to the 2019–20 3. Liga, as well as the champion of a third league determined in a draw. The other two champions will participate in the promotion play-offs to determine the fourth promoted team.[1]

The draw to determine which league will get the final direct promotion spot (Bayern, Nord or West), along with the pairing order of the promotion play-offs took place on 27 April 2018.[2][3]

Regionalliga NordEdit

18 teams from the states of Bremen, Hamburg, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein compete in the seventh season of the reformed Regionalliga Nord. Werder Bremen II was relegated from the 2017–18 3. Liga. Lupo Martini Wolfsburg and VfL Oldenburg were promoted from the 2017–18 Niedersachsenliga and Holstein Kiel II was promoted from the 2017–18 Schleswig-Holstein-Liga.

The relegation process was reformed for this season. The regular scenario will see the bottom three clubs relegated. They will be replaced by the champions of the Niedersachsenliga, while the champions of the Bremen-Liga, Oberliga Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein-Liga will play a round-robin play-off for the remaining two places. The fifteenth-placed club will play a play-off against the Oberliga Niedersachsen runners-up for a final place in the Regionalliga. This scenario may vary depending on promotion to and relegation from the 3. Liga.
