How exactly are the payments from the DFB-Pokal distributed?

The DFB Cup bonuses are normally determined before the season and paid out for each round depending on the clubs’ sporting performance.

This year, €128,757 will go to the clubs in the 1st round. The second round brings the clubs 257,514 euros, the 3rd round 515,028 euros. In the quarterfinals, the clubs can earn 1.004 million euros, in the semifinals already 2.008 million euros. The bonuses for the final have not yet been determined at this point. Incidentally, since 2013/2014 there have been no more special payments for clubs involved in matches broadcast live on ARD.

Overall, the bonuses from the DFB Cup have always risen steadily in recent years. Since the COVID pandemic, however, the picture has been different.

From the 2022/23 season, premiums from marketing are set to rise by more than 20 percent as a result of the new TV contract.

As in 20/21, however, the DFB will initially pay out only 80 percent of the contractually stipulated revenue from central marketing. In return, all clubs below the 2nd division will receive a one-off amount of EUR 15,000 to implement the hygiene concept.

In addition to the bonuses, the clubs can earn money in particular from spectator revenue. The spectator income per match in the DFB Cup is shared among the clubs. Each club receives about 45 percent from the spectator revenue. 10% of the revenue is used to cover the costs of pitch rental, regulatory services, referees and the Red Cross. In addition, since last season, amateur clubs have benefited from the elimination of the €7,000 expense reimbursement for the visiting club and from the increase in the organization fee from 15 to 25 percent.
