The eleventh German football championship was held from April 13 to May 11, 1913. VfB Leipzig secured their third championship in the final in Munich-Sendling with a 3-1 win against Duisburg SpV .
VfB Leipzig became the sole record champions again. With Duisburger SpV, a team from the West German Association reached the final for the first time. It was the first finals in which there was no club that had never reached the finals before.
Seven clubs, six champions from the regional associations and the defending champion were qualified for the final round. The games took place without the North German champions Eintracht Braunschweig . Due to problems in the determination of the Hamburg-Altona master with numerous protests and counter-protests, the North German championship finals could only start very late. The north German final only took place two weeks after the final for the German championship. Inevitably, the Braunschweig residents could not take part. After all, defending champion Holstein Kiel was a representative from North Germany.
