Federation Cup, previously called in full Bangladesh Federation Cup, is Bangladesh's premier knockout competition in men's association football. The competition started in 1980 and is run by the Bangladesh Football Federation which is responsible for all types of competitive matches in the country. The teams from the country's premier league and other clubs compete in the tournament while occasionally Indian sides were invited in the past. Most of the matches are played in the country's main football venue Bangabandhu National Stadium.

Format[edit]

A total of 16 teams participate in the final round. The top 10 teams from the Bangladesh Premier League directly take part in the final round while the other six teams are qualified out of 11 teams from preliminary round competitions in which the teams are split into three groups. In the final round the teams are split into four groups. Two teams from each group qualify for the knockout rounds.[1]
