The Ostzonenmeisterschaft 1948 (English: Championship of the Eastern Zone) was the first championship in what was to become East Germany. It was played in a one-leg knock-out format with ten participating teams. Each of the five LänderMecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg, Saxony, Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt—sent two representatives. The regional championships of Saxony, Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt were ended after the semi finals as by then two participants had been determined.
