German soccer scraps League Cup

The German soccer league DFL has scrapped the League Cup, a preseason competition for top clubs.
The competition began in 1997 and under its latest format involved the top six clubs from the previous Bundesliga season.
The tournament served as a warm-up for the Bundesliga season.
Next year's European Championship made it difficult to schedule the League Cup and league officials decided to scrap it all together, DFL president Reinhard Rauball said Thursday.
Bayern Munich won the tournament a record six times.
