2014–15 Bavarian Cup

The Bavarian Cup (German: Bayerischer Toto-Pokal), was created in 1998 and functions as a qualifying competition to the German Cup. It is one of the 21 regional cups in Germany. It is one of three regional associations who is permitted to send two amateur teams to the DFB Cup, the three associations doing so being the largest.[1]

An earlier incarnation of the Bavarian Cup existed from 1947 to 1954.[2]

History[edit]

The seven Bezirke in Bavaria each played their own cup competition which in turn used to function as a qualifying to the German Cup (DFB-Pokal). Since 1998 these seven cup-winners plus the losing finalst of the region that won the previous event advanced to the newly introduced Bavarian Cup, the Toto-Pokal. The two finalists of this competition then advanced to the German Cup. Bavarian clubs which play in the first or second Bundesliga were not permitted to take part in the event, their reserve teams however could.[3] Since 2008, reserve teams can not qualify for the DFB Cup any more, a right the clubs traded of for the privilege for reserve teams to play in the 3rd Liga.

Until 1998, the Bavarian Cup only existed in as much as it was a qualifying competition to the German Cup. This meant, in the later years two semi-finals were played to determined the two Bavarian amateur teams entering the DFB-Pokal, but, oddly, no final between these two teams was ever played.

Until 2008, no club had won the Bayernliga and the Bavarian Cup in the same season, until SpVgg Weiden did so in 2008-09.

2009 reform[edit]

The Bavarian Cup was completely overhauled and enlarged from 2009 onwards. Instead of only eight teams, it now consists of 64 clubs, and will exclude reserve teams. The first round will be held in September of each season and the teams will be made up from the following groups:

  • All Bavarian teams in the 3rd Liga and Regionalliga.
  • The 24 regional cup winners (Kreispokal), which will be held in August and September.
  • The clubs in the Bayernliga and the three Landesligas play a qualification round to determine the teams to fill the remaining spots.

The reason behind the reform is, to have all cup games in Bavaria on uniform dates and to allow the clubs in the Landesligas and above to enter the competition later, while clubs below that level will receive a better chance to win their local Kreispokal competition, and with this the associated prize money.[4]

The competition, made up of the 64 teams, is played in a knock-out format, with a final in the end. Two teams will continued to qualify for the German Cup, these being the cup winner and the winner of the game between the second and the third placed team. The later changed after 2012 when the second spot was awarded to the best-placed non-reserve side of the Regionalliga Bayern.[5]

Regional cups[edit]

Map of Bavaria: The seven Bezirke

  • The reason for the heavy defeat of TSV Gerbrunn in 2003 is the fact that the Bavarian Cup final is always played at the beginning of the next season, in July, and the club had since withdrawn its team from the Bayernliga to a lower league, therefore fielding a considerable weaker team.

DFB Cup performance[edit]
