The competition was delayed by disagreements within the EIFA, and instead of its usual start in early 1941 and finish at the end of the 1940–41 season, matches started on 20 September 1941, at the start of the 1941–42 season.
This competition saw a rise in the number of British and Arab teams, in part due to the heavy military presence in Palestine during the war. Among these teams were some ad-hoc teams, assembled for the competition and named after the chairmen or captain. Despite this, and for the fourth time since the competition started, the two top Tel Aviv teams, Maccabi and Hapoel met in the final. Maccabi won 2–1 to earn its 4th cup.
^The first match was terminated at half time, when the Recruiting Committee of Petah Tikva demanded that players of both teams who were of military age should not be allowed to play. The Score at the time of abandonment was 1 – 0 to Maccabi Avshalom Petah Tikva. The tie was rearranged for the following week.
^Due to military duty, the RAF could field only 8 men, and Maccabi was given a walkover win.
