The Landesliga Sachsen, commonly referred to as Sachsenliga, is the sixth tier of the German football league system and the highest league in the German state of Saxony, (German:Sachsen). Until the introduction of the 3rd Liga in 2008, it was the fifth tier of the league system.

Overview

The Landesliga Sachsen was established in 1990 from twelve clubs as a highest league for the German state of Sachsen, which incidentally was established after the league in October 1990[1], and the Sachsen Football Association, SFV (German:Sächsischer Fußball Verband). It compromised the area of the three Bezirksligen of Chemnitz (then:Karl-Marx-Stadt), Dresden and Leipzig, which still remain as the Landesligen feeder leagues. Each of those three leagues contributed four clubs to the new league. The Sachsenliga was established within the East German football league system and in cooperated in the league system of the united Germany after the end of its first season, in 1991.

The league has been a feeder league, together with the Landesliga Thüringen and Verbandsliga Sachsen-Anhalt, to the NOFV-Oberliga Süd, which its champion is directly promoted to. As such, it was the fourth tier of the German league system.

After the first season, the number of clubs in the league was increased to fourteen; in 1996 the league was again enlarged, to sixteen.

In 1994, with the establishment of the Regionalliga Nordost as the new third tier of the league system, the Sachsenliga fell to tier five in the system but remained unchanged otherwise.

In 2008, the league was again demoted one level when the 3rd Liga was established. However, this changed nothing in the leagues status as a feeder league to the NOFV-Oberliga.

The league is sponsored by the brewery of Wernesgrüner and carries therefore the official name of Wernesgrüner Sachsenliga. This is an unusual fact for Germany as football leagues don't normally carry sponsorship names.

The league has currently (2007-08 season) the unique distinction of having a former UEFA Cup Winners' Cup finalist in its ranks, the re-formed 1. FC Lok Leipzig, loser of the 1987 final. It is the only league in Germany below the Regionalliga to do so.

The Landesligen of Thüringen and Sachsen are unique in their naming as every other league in Germany of this standing carries the name Verbandsliga. This was done so simply by choice of the local football associations (German:Fussball Verband) in Sachsen and Thüringen and the name could be changed to Verbandsliga if they wish to do so.

Due to the changes to the German league system, the runners-up in 2007-08, Lok Leipzig was also promoted after winning a play-off round with the runners-up from the Verbandsliga Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, FC Schönberg 95.
