ModeEdit

The competition is open for all member clubs of the Mecklenburg Vorpommern FA playing in the 3. Liga, Regionalliga Nord, NOFV-Oberliga Nord, Verbandsliga Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Landesligas. Additionally, the regional cup winners of the previous season are also qualified. Reserve teams are not permitted to compete anymore. Up until the quarter finals, the teams from lower leagues have home advantage against teams from a higher league. From the quarter finals onwards, this is not the case. In case of a draw after regular time, extra time is played and, if this remains inconclusive, the game is decided by a penalty shoot out. The cup winners automatically qualify for the first round of the German Cup.[2]
