Landesliga Württemberg 1945-1950Edit

Landesliga Württemberg from 1978 onwardsEdit
Starting in the 1978-79 season, the new Landesliga Württemberg was introduced with four divisions. In 1978 it was the fifth league level below the Bundesliga, 2nd League (South), Oberliga Baden-Württemberg and Verbandsliga Württemberg.
Promotion and relegationEdit
The champions of the four divisions are automatically promoted to the Verbandsliga Württemberg. The four runners-up compete against each other in the relegation round for the Verbandsliga. There they participate in two knockout rounds. The runner-up who wins advances to compete in an additional relegation match against the club from the Verbandsliga that ended the season in the relegation place. The normal number of teams per season is 16. If there are more teams descending from the Verbandsliga than teams being promoted out of the district league or more teams promoted to the Verbandsliga than teams descending to the district league, then the number of teams increases. When this occurs, the "tightened" relegation rule applies in the following season. In this case, the number of teams that descends is increased to the number of teams that exceeds the usual 16 participating teams.
