Hong Kong FA Cup (Chinese: ) is a knockout cup competition in Hong Kong football, run by and named after The Hong Kong Football Association. The first edition of the competition was held in 1975, before then the cup was known as the Golden Jubilee Cup. The current season is the 33rd edition of the event. Until now, 11 teams have won the cup with 10-time champions South China being the most successful.

In the first three years, the semi-finals and the finals were two-legged event. If the aggregate result was drawn, there would be extra time after the second leg. Drawn ties after extra time would be settled by a replay. However, this practice was abandoned in 1977. Since 1978, all matches have become one-legged, draws are settled by extra time and penalty shootouts.

Moreover, teams from the Second Division and Third Division was allowed to enter the competition before. However, due to the huge difference in playing level between the First Division and the inferior levels below it, the cup has been limited to top-flight teams since 1981.[1]

The current HKFA Cup holders are Kitchee who defeated Sun Pegasus 1-0 in the 2013 final played on 11 May 2013, at the Hong Kong Stadium.
