South Baden Cup

|Most successful club(s)||FC 08 Villingen (8 titles)|
The Cup was established in 1945, after the end of the Second World War, in the French occupation zone in the southern half of the state of Baden, which existed as the state of South Baden from 1945 to 1952, when the state of Baden-Württemberg was formed. Due to the northern half of the state being under US occupation, the Baden football association was cut in half and a northern and southern federation was formed. The same happened with the regional cup competition.
The South Baden Cup is played annually, with the exception of 1946–47, 1951–56 and 1957–58, when it was not held.
From 1974 onwards, the winner of the South Baden Cup qualified for the first round of the German Cup.
The cup was sponsored for some years by the mineral water botteler Peterstaler and carried its name, Peterstaler Pokal, but the current sponsor is brewery Rothaus, and the competition is the therefore named Rothaus Pokal.
Professional clubs are not permitted to enter the competition, meaning, no teams from the Fußball-Bundesliga and the 2nd Bundesliga can compete. The only club from the region affected by this in the past years has been the first team of the SC Freiburg.
All clubs from South Baden playing in the 3rd Liga (III), Regionalliga Süd (IV) and Oberliga Baden-Württemberg (V) gain direct entry to the first round. Additionally, according to a quota system, the best eight clubs from the Verbandsliga Südbaden (VI) and the three Landesligas (VII) also enter the first round directly. The four semi-finalists of the six regional cup competitions in South Baden also qualify for the competition. Should more clubs be required to make up the number of 64 set for the first round, they will be selected from the Verbandsliga.
In case of a draw, the lower tier club advances.
