The 2013 Finnish League Cup will be the 17th season of the Finnish League Cup, Finland's second-most prestigious cup football tournament. TPS are the defending champions, having won their first league cup last year.

The cup consists of two stages. First there will be a group stage that involves the 12 Veikkausliiga teams divided into three groups. The top two teams and two best 3rd placed teams from each group will enter the one-legged elimination rounds – quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final.

Group stage[edit]

Every team will play every other team of its group twice, both home and away. The group stage matches will be played from 15 January to 6 March 2012.[1]
