The Bayernliga is the second highest league in Bavarian football . Until the regional league Bayern was introduced in 2012, it was the highest league. The Bayernliga is hosted by the Bavarian Football Association (BFV).


The Bayern League usually consists of 18 teams per season, a total of 36. However, depending on the number of ascending or descending clubs, the number can vary. In the 2012/13 season there were 37 teams, 18 in the north and 19 in the southern season.

At the end of the season, the champions are promoted directly to the Regionalliga Bayern, the second-placed contest a relegation round with the sixteenth and seventeenth of the Regionalliga Bayern for two starting places in the Regionalliga.

The last two placed in each season are relegated to the national league . The regional league has been divided into the five seasons of Northwest, Northeast, Middle, Southwest and Southeast since 2012, the champions of the five seasons are promoted directly to the Bayern League. The five runners-up of the regional leagues play in a relegation round with the fifteenth and sixteenth of the Bayern leagues, as well as the worse table fourteenth, three further places in the Bayern league.


The Bayernliga was played as a regional league for the first time in the 1945/46 season and was the second level in the German league system until the Bundesliga was founded in 1963. Then, until the third- tier regional league was founded in 1994, the third level: from 1950 to the league reform in 1978 the league carried out as a 1st amateur league , then as an amateur upper league . From 1994 until the introduction of the 3rd league in 2008, it was located as a major league on the fourth level and has since been the fifth highest league in German football under the name Bayernliga. Since the 2012/13 season, the Bayernliga has been divided into two regional groups North and South played out.

FC Memmingen is at the top of the all-time Bayern League table. The SpVgg Bayreuth with eight championships record champion Bayern league. This is followed by FC Augsburg (until 1969 under the name BC Augsburg) with seven championships and TSV 1860 Munich with five championships, with 1860 winning the championship twice with the second team.

By 1950 the master rose directly to the Oberliga Süd . Until 1963, the Bayern league champion - mostly through a promotion round against champions of neighboring amateur leagues - was promoted to the 2nd Oberliga Süd . In 1946/47, 1947/48 and from 1953 to 1963 there was a northern and a southern relay of the Bayernliga, the two relay champions played the championship title in direct comparison (except 1954; the title holder is mentioned first in the following list). From 1964 to 1974 the champions of the Bayernliga rose directly to the Regionalliga Süd , and then to the 2nd Bundesliga South until 1981 . From 1982 to 1994, the Bayern league champion took part in a promotion round together with the champions of neighboring leagues, the winners of which were promoted to the now single-track 2nd Bundesliga. From 1995 to 2012, the Bayern league champion or the best-placed who was eligible for promotion rose directly back to the Regionalliga Süd. Since 2013, both champions have been promoted to the highest Bavarian league, the Regionalliga Bayern , and there is no Bavarian championship.
