The first DFB-Pokal took place in 1935 when it was called the Tschammer-Pokal.

Since 1982, the format has changed to a single round of 90 minutes. If no winner is found in that time, extra time is played followed by a penalty shoot-out.

Since 1985, the final game of the tournament has been played in Berlin’s Olympiastadion.

Germany’s most decorated club is Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich is also one of the most awarded clubs in the world.
