Four teams from Tallinn managed to get through to the quarter-finals, including the defending champion Levadia. Three clubs from Tartu and one from Narva were also represented.
The win by Flora II was a bit unexpected, but as they had played well in the previous rounds, it was really no big surprise that they overcame the Meistriliiga side. Maag Tammeka had no problem defeating Santos, the only club from the second division. While the main team were victorious, Maag Tammeka's reserve team lost to Flora, conceding two goals in the first eight minutes and two more later in the game. The only game containing both teams from the Top Division culminated with an easy victory for Levadia against 2001 cup-winner Trans.
The clear favourite, Flora Tallinn, having won the competition twice before, in 1995 and 1997, attended the final for the sixth time. The underdog, Maag Tammeka Tartu, played in their first cup final, while also being only the second team from Tartu to reach that stage of the competition.
