Prior to the creation of these leagues in 2007, the cup was a "plate" competition for teams that lost in the Challenge Cup. The winner of the Chairman's Cup previously played the Premier Division champions in the Peter Swales Shield.

History[edit]

The Chairman's Cup's first season was in 1999–2000. At this point the Northern Premier League consisted of just two divisions and the tournament was a "plate" competition for teams that had lost in the Challenge Cup. The competition was later competed by the respective Division One North/South champions. Hyde United is the most successful team with two wins.

After the split of Division One into two leagues in 2007–08; winning the Chairman's Cup secured qualification to play the Premier Division champions in the Peter Swales Shield.
