Some things you should know about Germany Oberliga Niederrhein

The Oberliga Niederrhein is a German amateur football division run by the Football Association of the Lower Rhine, one of Germany's 21 state football associations. The Oberliga is officially a category 5 tier in the German football league structure since it is the top flight of the Lower Rhine state association.

History of the Oberliga Niederrhein

Until 1956, the highest amateur level in North Rhine-Westphalia was a total of ten Landesliga divisions, three of which were Landesliga Niederrhein divisions. Following the regular season, the ten Landesliga winners were forced to compete for two promotion places to the 2. Oberliga West. Following a decision by the superior Western German football association, four Verbandsliga divisions were formed in 1956, one of which was the Verbandsliga Niederrhein. Formalized paraphrase These four Verbandsliga divisions still exist today, with the Verbandsliga Niederrhein renamed Niederrheinliga in 2008 and Oberliga Niederrhein in 2012. 

 

The Verbandsliga Niederrhein started as the third tier of the German football league system. The league champion had to compete for two promotion slots to the 2nd Oberliga West against the champions of the Verbandsliga Mittelrhein and the two divisions of the Verbandsliga Westfalen. When the Bundesliga was formed in 1963, it was located below the current Regionalliga West, but it remained in the third tier. With the exception of 1963 and 1974, when the league structures were altered, the winner was also eligible for the promotion. 

 

The league champion struggled to do so in 1964, 1970, 1976, and 1978; they were competitive in every other season. With the start of the 3rd Liga in 2008, the Verbandsliga Niederrhein was demoted to the sixth tier. The league above it at the time was the current NRW-Liga, formed by the merging of the Oberligen Nordrhein and Westfalen. The Verbandsliga champion was always promoted automatically, but since there were already four Verbandsligen below the Oberliga, the runners-up did not have the option of promotion until the league winner refused. 

 

The NRW-Liga lasted for just a few seasons before being dissolved due to the Regionalliga West being a league only for clubs from North Rhine-Westphalia. While the Oberliga Westfalen was reestablished in one half of the province, the Lower Rhine and Middle Rhine regions decided to upgrade the Niederrheinliga and Mittelrheinliga to Oberliga status rather than reform the Oberliga Nordrhein.
