Bavaria will host the 2019 UEFA Regions' Cup finals from 18 to 26 June.
The German region is one of eight qualifiers for the European amateur finals, along with teams from the Czech Republic, France, Poland, Russia, Spain, Slovakia and Turkey. Germany stages the finals for a second time after the 2003 edition in Württemberg.
The draw will be held at half-time of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg between Bayern and Liverpool on Wednesday 13 March at Fußball Arena München, which kicks off at 20:45CET. In that the teams will be split into two groups of four, to be played on 18, 20 and 23 June. The two group winners progress to the final on 26 June to compete for a trophy won in 2017 by Zagreb from Croatia, who missed out in qualifying this time around.

Qualifying: how it worked
- In all cases national qualifiers were held to decide the representative for each association. San Marino entered their national amateur team rather than a regional selection.
- In the three preliminary round groups played in June and July, the teams finishing first and the two best runners-up progressed to the intermediate round.
- The winners of the eight intermediate round groups, played as mini-tournaments, now compete in the finals next June, with one of those contenders, Bavaria, subsequently selected as hosts.
