The 1929 Palestine Cup (Hebrew: הגביע הא"י‎, HaGavi'a HaEretz-Israeli) was the second season of Israeli Football Association's nationwide football cup competition. The joint-winners of the previous competition were Hapoel Tel Aviv and Maccabi Hasmonean Jerusalem.

Maccabi Tel Aviv won the cup, beating Maccabi Hasmonean Jerusalem 4–0 in the final, which was held on Maccabi Petah Tikva ground.

For the first (and penultimate) time, teams were allowed to enter reserve teams into the competition. However, only Maccabi Tel Aviv took advantage of this, and its B "Nordia" team reached the quarter-finals, before falling to Maccabi Zikhron Ya'akov after a replay.

Second Round[edit]

Second round matches started on 5 January 1929 with Maccabi Tel Aviv narrowly beating a Royal Air Force team of the 14th squadron, stationed in Amman and the previous year's cup final winner (and cup joint-holders) Hapoel Tel Aviv surprisingly losing to a British military team from the Royal Corps of Singals, stationed in Sarafand in Extra time.[8] Hapoel Tel Aviv appealed the result, claiming that according to the competition rules the match shouldn't have gone to extra time, but to a replay, [9]however, the appeal was rejected and Hapoel's elimination was confirmed.[10] The tie between the Arab team St. George and Maccabi Petah Tikva went to a replay after a 3–3 draw in Petah Tikva. In Jerusalem the Arab team won 2–1 and progressed to the quarter-finals.[11]
