In November , the DEL announced another change in policy. The league expanded to allow 16 teams beginning in the —09 season , resulting in direct promotion for the 2nd Bundesliga league champions, should they fulfill all requirements and be interested in joining the DEL.
Should this not be the case, or a current DEL team resigns from the league, a selection process would determine the club, or clubs, who would be eligible to join in order required to achieve 16 teams.
For that season, it was also mandated that each DEL club would be allowed to have no more than ten non- EC players under contract.
Additionally, a new format for the game schedule will limit the number of regular season games to 52 for each team.
This is achieved by each team playing four games against eleven others and two games against the remaining four. To determine which teams play which, the final standings of the previous season are used.
The DEL would also reintroduce promotion once more. The first- and second-lowest ranked teams will play a best-of-seven series to determine which team faces the 2nd Bundesliga champion for a place in the league.
There is, however, an ongoing dispute about those games as second division teams may only have five foreign players on contract, and therefore face a handicap in comparison to the DEL teams with twelve import players each.

Current season, competition or edition: The league reunited in a single division in , now with a strength of 16 teams and direct promotion to the Bundesliga.
The season was the last one as a tier-two league. With the foundation of the 2nd Bundesliga , the Oberliga fell to tier three.
While the league champion moved up to the Bundesliga and the teams placed two to nine gained entry to the new second division, only the bottom seven clubs remained in the league.
The Oberliga was now again divided into a northern and a southern group. The top two teams out of the two divisions originally played out a promotion round to the 2nd Bundesliga which also served to determine the Oberliga champion.
While the modus and number of teams in the league continued to fluctuat, the overall situation remained the same. The year saw major changes in the German league system.
The Bundesliga and 2nd Bundesliga merged to form the new DEL , an independently run league consisting of 18 clubs in its foundation years.
Those second division clubs that did not elect to join the DEL were integrated into the new 1st Liga , which had replaced the Oberliga and operated in a northern and a southern group.
The best teams of each of the two divisions played out a DEB championship, similar to the old Oberliga championship. The season was very much a transition season.
The league below was now the 1st Liga , which was made up of those clubs from the 1st Liga not adCentred to the new Bundesliga and 2nd Liga clubs.
However, this situation existed for only one season. From , the league returned to its traditional name Oberliga , with two regional groups, north and south.
In turn, the league above it took the name 2nd Bundesliga. Due to a lack of interest, the Oberliga North dissolved after the season.
The three clubs from this region which were still interested in playing on Oberliga level joined the southern division. The Oberliga South , largely made up of Bavarian clubs, continued to operate successfully in the coming season, usually including a couple of northern clubs, while the Oberliga North was not reestablished until The two separate divisions of the league were however not completely independent of each other, like in the past.
Teams from the same league would meet each other four times now, while clubs from different divisions would only meet twice in the regular season.
At the end of this, a combined play-off round would determine the Oberliga champion. In , the Oberliga was split in a northern and a southern group for the first time since The northern group contains nine, the southern ten clubs.
The four best-placed teams from each group enter a best-of-five play-off round to determine the Oberliga champion and the two promoted teams to the 2nd Bundesliga.
