|← Central German football championship 1913/14|
The Central German Football Championship 1914/15 of the Association of Central German Ball Game Clubs (VMBV) was the 14th season of the Central German Football Championship . With the beginning of the First World War , gaming operations throughout Germany came to a standstill for the time being. After it became clear that the war would last longer, gaming operations slowly resumed. However, the Central German football final was not held this season. The German soccer championship was also not held.
At the beginning of the war, the VMBV had 440 associations with around 30,000 members. The clubs were divided into 23 districts (Gaue) in the 1914/15 season, in most of the Gaue the game was suspended due to the war or only board games were held. In some districts, however, there were official war championships.
