Cup matches have always had their own laws. Time and again, amateur clubs have managed to knock the big favourites out of the competition. No team from the top flight can be sure of making it through the first round.
That is why the DFB Cup has been an important and exciting competition in German football for years. Numerous clubs fight to reach the final in Berlin’s Olympic Stadium and lift the trophy into the sky there.

A cup competition was held in Germany for the first time in 1935 and 4000 clubs took part. It was modelled on the Club Cup in England, which has been held since 1872. The cup was initiated by the then Reichssportführer Hans Tschammer, which is why the competition was named the “Tschammer Cup”.
The first title went to 1. FC Nürnberg in front of 60,000 spectators in Düsseldorf’s Rheinstadion. After the Anschluss of Austria, teams from the Alpine Republic also took part in the competition. Rapid Wien (1938) and First Vienna FC (1943) won the trophy. The end of the Second World War also brought the end of the “Tschammerpokal”.
After the post-war travails, the cup was held for the first time in 1952 as the “DFB Club Cup”. However, interest in the cup was extremely low in the 1950s. It was not until the introduction of the Bundesliga in 1963 that the attention became much greater again. In 1965, the competition received a new cup, which is still presented to the annual winner today. In 1970, the Offenbacher Kickers won the title for the first time as a second-division team. In the 1991/92 season, teams from the former GDR were integrated into the cup.
The period from 1992 to 2011 proved that underdogs can cause surprises, with underclass teams reaching the final seven times. Most recently, Eintracht Frankfurt’s cup victory over Bayern Munich sparked great emotion and once again proved the charm of the competition.
Of course, the DFB Cup is also very interesting for sports betting fans. The betting providers always have a wide range of offers for the cup. Long-term bets on the winner of the competition can be placed even before the start of the season. When the cup begins, there are several bets available for each match. It is also worth taking a look at the special bets. Especially in the first round, the betting odds are extremely lucrative. Here, the professional teams meet the amateur teams.
Double-digit odds on the underdog are not uncommon. Time and again, the underclass teams manage to cause a sensation, which is why high odds are worthwhile. DFB Cup betting therefore brings all kinds of excitement. The special feature of the competition is that extra time or penalty shootouts can be decisive for the outcome of the games. Especially here, live bets are worthwhile, as many teams run out of steam after 90 minutes.
