Westphalia DFB-Pokal play-offEdit

As the Westphalian Football and Athletics Association is one of three regional associations with the most participating teams in their league competitions, they were allowed to enter a second team for the 2018–19 DFB-Pokal (in addition to the Westphalian Cup winners). A play-off took place between the best-placed eligible (non-reserve) Westphalian team of the Regionalliga West, SV Rödinghausen, and the best-placed eligible team of the Oberliga Westfalen, SV Lippstadt, with the winners qualifying for the DFB-Pokal.

The Chinese under-20 national team was about to participate in this season from November onwards to even out the fixture list,[3] but the Chinese withdrew after one game following protests from pro-Tibet demonstrators.[4] Accordingly, their participation was cancelled.[5] The season started on 28 July 2017.

Regionalliga BayernEdit

19 teams from Bavaria competed in the sixth season of the Regionalliga Bayern; 14 teams were retained from last season and 3 were promoted from the Bayernliga. FC Unterföhring were promoted from the Bayernliga Süd and VfB Eichstätt from the Bayernliga Nord. FC Pipinsried were also promoted as they beat Greuther Fürth II in the 2016–17 Bayernliga promotion play-off. Finally, in a play-off between the two losing teams, Greuther Fürth II beat Viktoria Aschaffenburg, obtaining the last open spot in the league. 1860 Munich were originally relegated from 2016–17 2. Bundesliga to 2017–18 3. Liga, but failed to obtain a license and therefore competed in the Regionalliga.[1] This meant that this year's league was held with 19 teams instead of 18.
