The Oberliga West was the second-highest level of the German football league system in the west of Germanymarker from 1949 until the formation of the Bundesliga in 1963. It covered the state of Nordrhein-Westfalenmarker, the most populous state of Germany.

Overview

The 2nd Oberliga West was formed in 1949 with two groups of sixteen teams each as a feeder league to the Oberliga West. It was the first of the three second Oberligas, the other two being 2nd Oberliga Süd (1950) and 2nd Oberliga Südwest (1951). The league adopted a single group format from 1952. The top two teams of the 2nd Oberliga gained promotion to the Oberliga while the bottom two teams were relegated to the Verbandsligas. Some years however, exceptions applied and the number of promoted and relegated teams altered.

Below the 2nd Oberliga West ranked the Amateurligas, varying in numbers and names but split into three zones, Westfalen, Niederrhein and Mittelrhein.



The 2nd Oberliga West existed until 1963, when it was replaced by the Regionalliga West as the second division for Nordrhein-Westfalen.

The SpVgg Herten was the only team to have played in the league for all 14 seasons.

Schwarz-Weiß Essen became the first second division side to win the German Cup when they did so in 1959, an archivemend only repeated by Kickers Offenbach and Hannover 96.

Disbanding of the 2nd Oberliga

In 1963, the league was disbanded in favor of the new Regionalliga. The first eight teams from this season went to the Regionalliga West. The clubs placed from ninth to sixteenth were relegated to the Verbandsligas.



The following teams were relegated to the Amateurligas:
