The champions and runners-up of the respective divisions played out two promotion spots to the Bundesliga in two groups after the end of the season.
In , the two 2. In , the Regionalligas were re-introduced, this time as the third tier of German Football. There were initially four Regionalligas:.
Between and , promotion to the 2. Bundesliga was regulated without much continuity. It was a problematic rule, as becoming champion of a division did not automatically mean promotion for that team.
The champions of the North and Northeast divisions had a play-off to decide who would get the fourth promotion spot.
This rule was justified because there are more clubs in the southern part of Germany than the north. In , the promotion rule was changed again: The new divisional alignment was not bound to certain states any more so teams were moved between the divisions in order to balance club numbers.
This led to some clubs in the Southern division being geographically further north than some northern clubs, and vice versa. The champions and the runners-up of both divisions were promoted to the 2.
In , the Regionalliga was demoted to become the fourth tier of football in Germany after the introduction of a new nationwide 3. However, there was an expansion to three divisions: This led to teams assigned to a division other than their geographical one.

In October , yet another reform of the Regionalligas was decided upon. The number of leagues were now to be expanded to five, with the defunct Regionalliga Nordost to be reestablished and a Regionalliga Bayern to be established.
The new system is due to come into operation in the —13 season. It was also decided to limit the number of reserve teams per Regionalliga to seven.
The new leagues will consist of up to 22 clubs in their inaugural season but will then have to be reduced to between 16 and 18 clubs.
The Regionalligas will not be administrated by the DFB but rather by the regional football associations. In regards to reserve teams, initially only seven are permitted per league, however, this rule may be subject to change under certain circumstances.
Reserve sides of 3. Liga teams are not permitted in the Regionalliga. The reorganisation of the Regionalligas so soon after the last changes in became necessary because of a large number of insolvencies.
These were caused by a lack of media interest in the leagues combined with large expenses and infrastructure demands.
The five Regionalligas from are: Some regional football associations have also made changes to the league system below the Regionalliga in their area.
From the —13 season, the Bavarian Football Association split the Bayernliga into a northern and a southern division, and increased the number of Landesligas from three to five.
At the 96th DFB-Bundestag in December , delegates decided to change the promotion rules and reduce the number of leagues to four. To achieve this, a temporary solution has been put into place for the —19 and —20 seasons.
Four teams will be promoted and there will be three guaranteed promotion places from the champions of the five regional leagues.
The champion of the southwest league, which is giving up its second playoff place, will be promoted automatically in the next two seasons.
Additionally there will be two teams promoted from the other four regional leagues. In the —19 season, the champion of the northeast league will also be promoted directly.
The winner of the third guaranteed promotion place will be decided by the drawing of lots. The remaining two regional league champions of the —19 season will face off in a two-legged playoff determining the fourth promotion place.
The two regional leagues whose teams took part in the playoff will automatically have promotion places for the —20 season. As a result, the third division will have four relegation places.
The clubs of the other two were spread according to their geographical location. Only the teams placed two to six were permitted to remain in the league.
With the introduction of the 3rd Liga in and of a third Regionalliga, the Regionalliga West , the league became the fourth tier of German football.
The following 18 teams fulfilled the various qualification criteria and were granted a license for play in the new Regionalliga Nord for the season.
In October , another reform of the Regionalligas was decided upon. The number of leagues was now expanded to five, with the Nordost clubs leaving the Regionalliga Nord to form their own Regionalliga Nordost once more.
The new system came into operation at the start of the season. It was also decided to limit the number of reserve teams per Regionalliga to seven.
The West was chosen by a draw. The remaining two champions also determined by the same draw, from the Nord and Bayern, will play a two-legged promotion play-off for the last promotion spot.
This format was installed as a temporary solution until the DFB-Bundestag in can decide on a format that enables all Regionalliga champions to be promoted.
