WSV Blog: Oberliga Niederrhein final

The Oberliga Niederrhein (or is it the Niederliga Oberrhein?) didn’t end up with promotion for Wuppertal, but of course after going into voluntary administration and relegation, that wasn’t really the plan. The idea was to stabilize the club and start sorting out the finances, and it seems things are moving in the correct direction. Life in the 5th division is rough at the box-office, although actually renewed fan interest gave WSV numbers about the same as previous Regionalliga campaign. (Certainly there was more season ticket purchase). WSV did decently in other areas though. The “A-Jugend”, the U18 squad, were in the U18-Bundesliga-West, and the last match drew 6,600 for the game against Schalke’s U18. This set a national record for the youth leagues.

Nevertheless, it was largely disappointing on the field in the sense that WSV was very inconsistent, and that the samll number of WSV Hooligans caused problems that made all the smaller clubs fear Wuppertal showing up, despite the increased gate. (And of course in Homberg the idiots cost the match, as by throwing crap on the field the league penalized WSV with a loss).

The champions, from the ex-nuclear reactor villages of Hönnepel-Niedermörmter, were the best team in the league, and deservedly get promoted. Most of the other teams you’ve never even heard of, the exception being Schwarz-Weiss Essen and perhaps the another Essen squad, FC Kray.

Champion is promoted to Regionalliga West.
Bottom 4 are relegated
14-16 could be relegated depending on Regionalliga West results:
Looks like Velbert coming down, so Sonsbeck is in trouble.
Uerdingen also likely down, which means Ratingen could drop as well
