2012–13 Albanian Cup (Albanian: Kupa e Shqipërisë) was the sixty-first season of Albania's annual cup competition. Laçi, the winners of the competition qualified for the first qualifying round of the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League. KF Tirana were the defending champions, but were eliminated by Kukësi in the second round.

Apart from the Quarter-finals, the ties are played in a two-legged format similar to those of European competitions. If the aggregate score is tied after both games, the team with the higher number of away goals advances. If the number of away goals is equal in both games, the match is decided by extra time and a penalty shoot-out, if necessary.

Preliminary Tournament[edit]

In order to reduce the number of participating teams for the First Round to 32, a preliminary tournament is played. Only teams from the Second Division (third level) are allowed to enter. In contrast to the main tournament, the preliminary tournament is held as a single-leg knock-out competition.[1]
