↓ District classes
The district class Halle-Merseburg , (later also 1st class Halle-Merseburg ), was one of three second-rate football leagues in the Sportgau Mitte during the National Socialist era . In addition to the district class Magdeburg-Anhalt and the district class Thuringia, it served as a substructure for the Gauliga Mitte and existed from 1933 to 1943 over 10 completed season series.
[* from 1940/41 season: 1st class Halle-Merseburg ]
After through the DC circuit -related resolution of the Association of German means ball game teams 1933 teams central German from the (not-Saxon) Union Gauen were in the newly created center Gau VI / = Gau arranged. From the Gauliga Saale , z. B. the two best-placed clubs of the season 1932/33 with a place for the first class Gauliga in mid-1933/34rewarded. The clubs in ranks 3–9 received an automatic starting place for the new district class. The tenth and last place was in the district class, and thus two classes lower in the now formally existing third class. Compiled according to similar selection criteria, the three best-placed clubs from the Gauliga Saale-Elster and the two best - placed clubs from the Gauliga Kyffhäuser were added for the new class . The Gauliga Mulde , (consisting of the two squadrons Altmulde + Elbe-Elster ), was not taken into account for reasons already decided in advance and communicated by the game commission, explicitly: "insufficient high-quality sporting criteria" .
Thus the new district class Halle-Merseburg started with twelve participating clubs. Five classes of the (1st district class) were arranged under the district class. (District 5 = Elbe-Elster / District 6 = Mulde / District 7 = Jahn / District 8 = Kyffhäuser / District 9 = Saale-Elster). The winner of each district class qualified for the promotion round to Gauliga Mitte by playing off the two promoted to Gauliga with the winners of the two other district classes of the district. At the beginning of the 1936/37 season, the Saale-Elster district was dissolved and replaced by the newly created Rudelsburg district. The district of Mulde was in: District of course axesrenamed. So it stayed with 5 districts in the district, with slightly changed border lines. In the 1939/40 season, the so-called " 1st War Championship ", the Halle-Merseburg district class was only able to maintain play with 9 teams due to the war. In wise foresight, the competent Central Office decided
to contest the pre-season with 4 relegators in order to initiate the necessary minimization. With the 1940/41 season the league was renamed: "1st Class Halle-Merseburg" and increased to ten participating clubs for the next three game series. In the summer of 1943, the three first classesin Gau Mitte (VI) then dissolved again in terms of reform structure. The second league stage then formed the circles, as in the years from 1920 to 1923.
In the 10 years of existence, the victorious champions of the Halle-Merseburg district class were able to prevail a total of eight times in the respective round of promotion to Gauliga Mitte . The FV Sportfreunde Halle was able to win the district class championship as a record winner proud and remarkable 3 times and managed to achieve promotion to the Gauliga Mitte every time .
