Qualifying rounds[edit]

The only one of the Swedish District Football Associations that had a qualifying round was Dalarnas FF, the other ones decided their teams in other ways. The first round commenced on 3 March 2012 and the final was contested on 22 May 2012.[4]

Round 1[edit]

64 teams from the third tier or lower of the Swedish league system competed in this round. The round was played between 3 June and 5 August 2012 with the majority of the fixtures played in early August.[3]

Round 2[edit]

All teams from 2012 Allsvenskan and 2012 Superettan entered in this round, 32 teams in total, where they were joined by the 32 winners from round 1. The 32 teams from Allsvenskan and Superettan were seeded and played against the 32 winners from round 1, the matches were played at the home venues for the unseeded teams. The fixtures were drawn on 6 August 2012 and the round was initially scheduled to be played between 16 and 20 August 2012, however three fixtures were postponed to later dates due to clashes with Allsvenskan and European cup play.[3]

Group stage[edit]

The 32 winners from round 2 were divided into eight groups of four teams. The 16 highest ranked winners from the previous rounds were seeded to the top two positions in each groups and the 16 remaining winners were unseeded in the draw. The ranking of the 16 seeded teams were decided by league position in the 2012 season. All teams in the group played each other once, the highest ranked teams from the previous rounds and lower tier teams had the right to play two home matches. The group stage was played in March 2013. The draw for the group stage was held on 13 November 2012.[5]
