Association of Palatinate clubs for exercise games
The Association of Palatinate Clubs for Movement Games (VPVfB) was a local football association in the Palatinate.
The VPVfB was founded on March 7, 1903. First chairman was Eugen Seybold from Landau . From July 5, 1903, the association's first championship in a class with five clubs was held in a single round. The champions were FC 1900 Kaiserslautern , who won all four games. Furthermore, FC Bavaria 1902 Kaiserslautern , FC Zweibrücken, FG 1902 Landau and FC Pirminia Pirmasens took part in the match games.
At the end of August 1903, on the occasion of a course for 30 teachers, which was organized by the “Central Committee for the Promotion of Popular and Youth Games”, a football game between two of the association's teams was held to bring football to schools in the Palatinate.
In the summer of 1903 the association wanted to join the German Football Association (DFB) without first becoming a member of the Association of South German Football Associations (VSFV). The VSFV vetoed the DFB, which rejected the application for membership. As a result, the Palatinate Association remained independent for two years.
The number of member clubs increased rapidly, and for the 1903/04 season the top division was divided into two groups, each with five clubs. Whether the championship games actually took place has not been recorded.
Also in the 1904/05 season the game was played in two divisions, and there was also a single-track 2nd class.
On May 14, 1905, the association's member clubs unanimously agreed to join the Association of South German Football Associations (VSFV). Nevertheless, a separate game plan was published for the following 1905/06 season. This was taken over by the VSFV after the Association of Palatinate Clubs for Movement Games dissolved at the end of September 1905.
