  • All leagues on same level run parallel.

Recent changes

In 1988, upon the suggestion of the 1. FC Sonthofen in 1986, the Bezirksoberligas were introduced in Bavaria, set between the already existing Landesligas and Bezirksligas.[1]

In 1998, the Bavarian FA renamed the three lowest football leagues:

  • A-Klasse became Kreisliga
  • B-Klasse became Kreisklasse
  • C-Klasse became A-Klasse

On top of this, in some of the seven Bezirke, two new lowest levels were introduced and named B and C-Klasse. The reason for this was the integration of all reserve teams into the normal competition. In the Bezirke who did not follow suit, like Schwaben, the reserve teams of clubs in the Kreisliga and below still compete in separate, parallel leagues.

Bavarian Cup

The seven Bezirke in Bavaria each play their own cup competition which in turn functioned as qualifier to the German Cup (DFB-Pokal). Starting in 1998 these seven cup-winners advance to the Bavarian Cup. The two finalists of this competition advance to the German Cup.[2]
