The 1975–76 season of the Oberliga was the second season of the Oberliga as a tier three league. The original post-Second World War Oberligas, then as tier one leagues, had been disestablished after the 1962–63 season, when the Bundesliga was introduced.


The Oberliga was organised in two regional divisions, the Oberliga Nord and the Oberliga Berlin, with the two league champions, as well as the runners-up of the Oberliga Nord, earning the right to play-off for promotion to the level above, the 2. Bundesliga. Parallel to the two Oberligas, Amateurligas and Verbandsligas existed in the other parts of Germany at this level.

A similar league, the DDR-Oberliga, existed in East Germany, set at the first tier of the East German football league system. The 1975–76 DDR-Oberliga was won by BFC Dynamo.


The championship of the Oberliga Nord was won by Arminia Hannover, previous seasons runners-up, while VfL Wolfsburg finished runners-up, two points behind. Both clubs won promotion to the 2. Bundesliga and, as a consequence, no team was relegated from the league. The best-placed team in the league from each of the four regional federations, except the league champions and runners-up who played in the promotion round to the 2. Bundesliga instead, qualified for the German amateur football championship. VfB Oldenburg (Lower Saxony) and Concordia Hamburg (Hamburg) both reached the semi-finals where they were knocked-out. In the decider for third place Concordia won 3–1. Holstein Kiel (Schleswig-Holstein) was knocked-out in the first round while Blumenthaler SV (Bremen) advanced to the second where they lost to Oldenburg.

The Oberliga Berlin was won by SC Union 06 Berlin but the club failed to win promotion to the 2. Bundesliga. League runners-up Hertha BSC Amateure entered the German amateur championship but was knocked-out by eventual champions SV Holzwickede in the first round.

    Thirteen teams took part in the promotion round to the 1976–77 2. Bundesliga, six in the north and seven in the south. Two teams, the champions of Hesse and the runners-up of Bavaria, were promoted directly without entering the play-off.
