The 1928 German football championship, the 21st edition of the competition, was won by Hamburger SV, defeating Hertha BSC 5–2 in the final.


For Hamburger SV it was the second national championship after its first in 1923, not counting the 1922 title which the club declined. It brought to an end Hamburg's successful era during the 1920s with four appearances in the German final in seven seasons. Hamburger SV would not play in a final again until 1957 and win its next championship three years later, in 1960. For Hertha BSC it marked the third consecutive final loss, a series the club would extend to four in the following season. Hertha would than go on to win back-to-back championships in 1930 and 1931.

Hertha's Hans Grenzel and Hamburg's Tull Harder were the joint top scorer of the 1928 championship with seven goals each.

Sixteen club qualified for the knock-out competition, two from each of the regional federations plus an additional third club from the South and West.
