History[edit]

On September 25, 1920, the National Challenge Cup held a drawing for the first round of the 1921 National Challenge Cup. The drawing paired eighty-five entrants, down from 99 the previous year being due to the fact the entrance fee had been raised from $5 to $10.[1] The cup a single elimination format consisting of six rounds and a single game final. The entrants were dividing into an eastern and a western division which led to a final pitting St. Louis Scullin Steel F.C. from the west and Brooklyn Robins Dry Dock from the east.
