DFB Cup dispute: Türkgücü Munich sees court ruling as “partial success


The Regional Court Munich I revokes the registration of the 1st FC Schweinfurt as a DFB Cup participant by the Bavarian Football Association. Türkgücü Munich considers the verdict a partial success.

Türkgücü Munich’s managing director Max Kothny has evaluated the verdict in the DFB Cup dispute about the Bavarian opponent of FC Schalke 04 as a “partial success”. “I can understand it as a partial success. It at least shows that we were right to take action against it,” Kothny said in Munich on Wednesday. “I assume that we will be entered for the DFB Cup, unless the Bavarian Football Association tries to get back on the Schweinfurt side and change the game rules again”.

The Regional Court Munich I has “partially revoked and amended” the temporary injunction of September 11, as the presiding judge Gesa Lutz explained. The Cartel Chamber has ordered the Bavarian Football Association (BFV) to “revoke the notification of 1st FC Schweinfurt 05 and to decide again on the notification” for the 1st cup round.

“From a soccer technical point of view, everything is up and running. We currently have no participants, we don’t have to report Türkgücü as obligatory, we have to reconsider when we report and have to justify this again,” explained BFV managing director Jürgen Igelspacher.

A court spokeswoman described the ruling as a “Solomonic middle course”. Both parties to the dispute can appeal to the Munich Higher Regional Court with a period of one month’s notice. The second DFB Cup main round will be drawn on October 15. It is scheduled for December 22/23.

Türkgücü had appealed to the Regional Court against the decision of the BFV to enter Schweinfurt as the best Bavarian amateur team alongside TSV 1860 Munich for the DFB Cup. The “Lions” had booked the ticket via the Toto Cup. Türkgücü had been nominated by the BFV during the Corona break to be promoted to the 3rd league, but was not considered for the DFB-Pokal due to a change in the statutes. The regional court regarded this BFV decision as “illegal” and issued a temporary injunction requested by Türkgücü.
