The 2008 Bavarian Cup was the eleventh edition of this competition, organised by the Bavarian Football Association (BFV), which was started in 1998. It ended with the SpVgg Unterhaching winning the competition. Together with the finalist, SpVgg Ansbach, both clubs were qualified for the DFB Cup 2008-09.

The competition is open to all senior men's football teams playing within the Bavarian football league system and the Bavarian clubs in the Regionalliga Süd (III) and 3rd Liga.

Rules & History[edit]

The seven Bezirke in Bavaria each play 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 finalist of the region that won the previous event advance to the newly introduced Bavarian Cup, the Toto-Pokal. The two finalists of this competition advance to the German Cup. Bavarian clubs which play in the first and second Bundesliga are not permitted to take part in the event.[1] The seven regional cup winners plus the finalist from last season's winners region are qualified for the first round.
