German championship 1921/22

The sixteenth German football championship brought Hamburger SV the championship title against SC Union Oberschöneweide , which they had waived the previous year .

In West Germany no regional champion was determined this year. In this region, the so-called “new path” was taken. It had been decided to spread a league season over two years, and there should only be promotion and relegation every four years. The WSV hoped to dampen emotions and aggression on the field and in the spectator stands. However, the WSV did not want to do without a representative at the German championship final and let the current leaders of the district leagues play a qualifying round, which Arminia Bielefeld won. That is why Arminia Bielefeld is listed in many statistics as the West German champion of 1923, which is not correct.

For the first time after the war, VfB Königsberg took part in the finals. After having won the northeast German championship title at the green table and too late in the past three years, the Königsbergers won the title this year without protest and especially on time.

VfL Leipzig-Stötteritz won the ATSB championship for the third time and thus managed the hat trick. The German youth force did not play a football champion again this year.
