1997–98 Albanian Cup (Albanian: Kupa e Shqipërisë) was the forty-sixth season of Albania's annual cup competition. It began on August 1997 with the First Round and ended on June 1998 with the Final match. The winners of the competition qualified for the 1998–99 first round of the UEFA Cup. KF Partizani were the defending champions, having won their fourteenth Albanian Cup last season. The cup was won by KS Apolonia.[1]

The rounds were played in a two-legged format similar to those of European competitions. If the aggregated score was tied after both games, the team with the higher number of away goals advanced. If the number of away goals was equal in both games, the match was decided by extra time and a penalty shootout, if necessary.
