The Leistungsklasse (LK) is an amateur football league in Germany. It is the fourth tier of the German football league system, below the Regionalliga, Oberliga, and Verbandsliga.
The LK is divided into 21 regional leagues, each of which is further divided into two or three divisions. The number of teams in each division varies, but there are typically between 12 and 16 teams per division.
The season runs from August to May, and each team plays each other team in their division twice, once at home and once away. The top teams in each division are promoted to the Oberliga, while the bottom teams are relegated to the Verbandsliga.
