The Azerbaijan Cup is a major association football competition in Azerbaijan. In its original form, it started in 1936, when Azerbaijan was a republic of the Soviet Union; it was not disputed by Azerbaijani teams in the Soviet league pyramid.

Compared to cups in many other countries, Azerbaijan attracts considerably less public interest and even the cup final is rarely sold out. Consequently the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan has experimented with the format in order to raise the profile of the cup.

Format[edit]

Participants[edit]

All clubs from the Azerbaijan Premier League and First Division.
