2013–14 Hazfi Cup

The Hazfi Cup (Persian: جام حذفی ‎) is a knockout cup competition in Iranian football, run by the Iranian Football Federation. The competition wasn't regarded important by clubs until the IRIFF decided to award one of Iran's four AFC Champions League spots to the champion.

The competition was founded in 1975. Esteghlal has won the cup on the most occasions, with 6 wins. The current holders are Tractor Sazi.

Format[edit]

The rules for the final were exactly the same as the one for the previous knockout rounds. The tie was contested over two legs with away goals deciding the winner if the two teams were level on goals after the second leg. If the teams could still not be separated at that stage, then extra time would have been played with a penalty shootout (taking place if the teams were still level after that).
