The 2007 DFL-Ligapokal was the eleventh and final edition of the DFL-Ligapokal. The competition could not be scheduled in 2008, due to fixture congestion caused by UEFA Euro 2008, and did not return in 2009. An unofficial Super Cup ran in these years, and was made official in 2010, as the DFL-Supercup.

The 2007 Ligapokal saw a minor format change, with the 2. Bundesliga champions (in this case Karlsruher SC) entering in place of the 5th placed Bundesliga team. The title was won by Bayern Munich, who secured their 6th win with a 1–0 victory over Schalke 04.
