Regionalliga
Season2020–21

FormatEdit

A new promotion format was decided on in 2019. From this season onward, the Regionalliga Südwest and West receive a fixed promotion spot. A third promotion spot rotates between the other three divisions, with the remaining two champions participating in play-offs for a fourth spot. A draw has determined that the Regionalliga Nordost receives the third direct promotion spot this season.[1]

Regionalliga NordEdit

22 teams from the states of Bremen, Hamburg, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein will compete in the ninth season of the reformed Regionalliga Nord. VfV Hildesheim and Atlas Delmenhorst were promoted from the 2019–20 Oberliga Niedersachsen, Teutonia Ottensen was promoted from the 2019–20 Oberliga Hamburg, FC Oberneuland was promoted from the 2019–20 Bremen-Liga and Phönix Lübeck was promoted from the 2019–20 Schleswig-Holstein-Liga.

As the league expanded during the COVID-19 pandemic, the league was split into two regional groups, with the ten best teams qualifying for a championship round and the other twelve teams qualifying for a relegation round.[2] The relegation rules have yet to be announced.
