A state cup is an amateur football competition organized by a state football association. It is typically open to all amateur clubs in the state, and the winner is considered to be the state champion.


The first state cup was organized in England in 1871. The competition was called the FA Cup, and it is still the most famous state cup in the world. Other countries soon followed suit, and today there are state cups in most countries with a significant football following.

The structure of a state cup varies from country to country. In some countries, the competition is a straight knockout tournament, while in others there are preliminary rounds or group stages. The number of teams participating in the competition also varies. In some countries, only the top clubs in the country are eligible to participate, while in others any amateur club can enter.


The winners of a state cup are typically awarded a trophy and a cash prize. They may also be given the right to compete in a national cup competition, such as the FA Cup in England.
