The Greek Cup 1997–98 was the 56th edition of The Greek Football Cup, or Greek Cup for short.

Tournament details[edit]

Totally 66 teams participated, 18 from Alpha Ethniki, 18 from Beta, and 30 from Gamma. It was held in 7 rounds, included final. The teams of Alpha Ethniki would enter in the competition in the Third Round.

Panionios made the surprise overcoming Panathinaikos in the Final and won the second Cup in their history, after 1979. Also, they were neophyte in Alpha Ethniki that year, while the previous season they had participated in Beta Ethniki Championship. In semi-finals they eliminated PAOK. Panathinaikos in the Fourth Round eliminated Panserraikos, achieving an impressive victory in Serres, with extraordinary 4–6, and while in half time they were behind in the score, 3–1.

It is remarkable that captain of Panionios, Leonidas Vokolos, played later in Panathinaikos.
