Verbandsliga S├╝dbaden

The Verbandsliga Südbaden is a German amateur football division administered by the South Badenese Football Association, one of the 21 German state football associations. Being the top flight of the South Baden state association, the Verbandsliga is a level 6 division of the German football league system; the Verbandsliga Südbaden was formed in 1945 called Landesliga Südbaden, in the southern half of the state of Baden, now the western half of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. It was a feeder league to the Oberliga Südwest and therefore the second tier of the football league system in the southwest of Germany until 1950, when the clubs from Südbaden left the southwest league system and returned to the southern system where they geographically belong. From 1950 until the establishment of the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg in 1978, it was the third tier of the football league system; the separation of North Baden and South Baden results from the outcome of the 2nd World War when the state was split into two separate occupation zones.

The north was in the south in the French zone. For this reason the clubs from the south of Baden found themselves thrown in with the Oberliga Südwest, as those were in the French zone; the league was established in 1945 with nine teams in the western and eight teams in the eastern group. Four of those clubs gained entry into the new Oberliga Südwest for the 1946–47 season; the year after the league was split into three groups, from 1947 it was staged in one single group and adopted the name Amateurliga Südbaden. The twelve founding members of the league were: ASV Villingen Lahrer FV SC Baden-Baden VfR Stockach SpVgg Rheinfelden SpVgg Ottenau SpVgg Emmendingen FC Gutach SV Schopfheim VfR Engen FC Donaueschingen FV Fahrnau In the post-war days, clubs in the French zone were not allowed to operate under their pre-war names and had to adopt a new name, they reverted to their old names as this rule was revoked. In 1950, with the dissolution of the southern group of the Oberliga Südwest, its 16 clubs were integrated in the southern league system.

Two went to the Oberliga Süd, three to the new 2nd Oberliga Süd, the other eleven went to the Amateurligen, six of those to Südbaden. With the creation of the Amateurliga Schwarzwald-Bodensee in 1960, some clubs of the Südbaden leagues went across, three of those from the Amateurliga, being the FC Villingen, FC Konstanz and FC Radolfzell. Most of those returned in 1974. With the introduction of the Bundesliga in 1963 the Amateurliga was placed below the new Regionalliga Süd but still retained its third-tier status, it continued to do so after the introduction of the 2nd Bundesliga Süd in 1974. The winner of the Amateurliga Südbaden was not automatically promoted but rather had to take part in a promotion play-off to its league above; the champion would have to compete with the winners of the Amateurligas Nordbaden, Württemberg and Schwarzwald-Bodensee. The Offenburger FV is the undisputed champion of this league; the club played 28 out of a possible 33 seasons in the Amateurliga Südbaden, interrupted only by a four-year spell in the Oberliga Südwest.

From 1950 to 1978 it was always a member of the league and continued to be a third division side in the Oberliga Baden-Württemberg until 1991, making it 42 uninterrupted years, a German record. The FC Rastatt and SC Freiburg belonged to the Amateurliga Südbaden for the same time but with lesser success. Rastatt was relegated from the Oberliga in 1986 and Freiburg never fell below its 2nd Bundesliga status again. In 1978, the league was renamed Verbandsliga Südbaden; the top five teams out of the Verbandsliga went to the new Oberliga while the next ten clubs remained in this league. The bottom placed. Admitted to the new Oberliga: FC Rastatt 04 FC 08 Villingen SV Kuppenheim DJK Konstanz Offenburger FVThe winner of the Verbandsliga gains direct promotion to the Oberliga; the runners-up must play-off against the runners-up of Verbandsliga Baden. The winner of this play-off has to face the runners-up of the Verbandsliga Württemberg for the final Oberliga spot. In 1981 no extra spot and in 1994 three extra spots were available due to league format changes.
