The Bavarian amateur footballers discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the two models for ending the season.

The clubs can still vote until Tuesday.


- The explosiveness of the opinion picture that has been running since Friday, in which the Bavarian clubs can vote on the evaluation of the canceled 2019/2021 season, is shown by the number of participants in the webinar of the Bavarian Football Association (BFV).

No less than 520 club representatives from the Upper Bavaria district obtained the relevant information.

The clubs can choose until Tuesday morning at 10 a.m.

District chief Schraudner: "We are completely open-minded."

Option two turns out to be an advantage at first glance - but if you consider the next two seasons, the associated disadvantages also become apparent: “With the alternative solution, the team strength in the more powerful leagues will increase significantly, while the lower leagues will be thinned out .

In addition, we want to bring the leagues back to today's target figures in the next two seasons, which will inevitably lead to a significantly increased relegation ”, said BFV district chairman Robert Schraudner, but emphasized“ that we are completely open-minded ”.


This diagram shows the league strengths of the future circular leagues.

In the case of termination option one, nothing would change in the Donau / Isar district.


The district chairman of the Zugspitze play area, Heinz Eckl, showed the possible scenarios with diagrams. For example, with model number two, the number of district league teams would increase from 46 to 58. "The District League North would consist of 20 teams, there would be eight direct relegations and two relegation relegants at the end of the 2021/22 season," warned Eckl and explained that the scenario would worsen in the following round with 18 teams, nine relegated members and one relegant . "We have to reduce the possible increase in teams", asked Eckl for understanding, but said, "that it still has to be checked whether the number of relegated teams is in accordance with the statutes". Schraudner was able to dispel the concern that 38 match days would not be possible. "With other forms of play that are already being planned,we can enable a season to run with this high number of clubs. "

This is what it looks like in the game classes at district level

The scenario with increased relegation also affects other leagues. If Paragraph 93 was implemented, two teams would be relegated and two teams would be relegated if there were 14 teams in the district league 2, in which clubs from the Freising district play. The alternative solution would increase the league strength by two clubs, but double the number of direct relegated teams to four. The same can be seen in the district class, while there are hardly any differences in the two variants for the A-classes. The situation in the C-Class is more difficult: The number of teams would decrease significantly due to the increased promotion. “There is a risk that some groups will drop out due to too few teams. Due to the regrouping, further routes are possible ",Schraudner explained the consequences of the alternative solution.

But even if the majority of the clubs vote for this variant two, the increased promotion and the suspended relegation are not yet dry.

In that case, an extraordinary association day would be necessary - the final decision would not be made until mid-June.
