The 1910 German football championship, the eighth edition of the competition and organised by the German Football Association, was won by Karlsruher FV, defeating Holstein Kiel 1–0 in the final.[1]

For Karlsruher FV it marked the clubs sole German championship, having previously lost the 1905 final. The club would go on to play Holstein Kiel again in the 1912 final where the roles would be reversed and Kiel would win 1–0. Kiel, in turn, only made one other final appearance apart from 1910 and 1912, losing the 1930 final to Hertha BSC.[2][3][4]

Kiel's Willi Zincke was the top scorer of the 1910 championship with five goals.[5]
