What does Landesliga mean?
- The Fußball-Landesliga is a tier of football in some of the states of Germany. In Bavaria, Sachsen, Thuringia, Bremen, Lower Saxony and Hamburg the Landesligas are set right below the Oberlig and therefore are the sixth tier. The reason for this is that Bavaria, Hamburg, Lower Saxony and Bremen are the only places in Germany where the Oberliga, the State and the Verband are geographically the same, while the other two states simply chose to call their leagues Landesligas when establishing them in 1990. In the Middle Rhine and Lower Rhine regions of North Rhine-Westphalia it is also, since 2012, the sixth tier. In Baden-Württemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate, North Rhine-Westphalia, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt and Berlin it is the seventh tier, below the Verbandsliga. In the Saarland, the Landesligas are set as the eighth tier. Typically, in each Bundesland, the Landesligen are split up into different Staffeln or "divisions". In Bavaria, the Landesliga is split up into three divisions, South, Central and North. In Sachsen, Bremen and Thüringen the Landesliga is in a single division format. In Hamburg, it consists of two divisions.
