The Serbia and Montenegro Cup was an association football knockout cup tournament of Serbia and Montenegro played between 1992 and 2006, after which Serbia and Montenegro became separate nations. The competition was the continuation of the old Marshal Tito Cup of the SFR Yugoslavia, and it was named FR Yugoslavia Cup between 1992 and 2003, when the official name of the country was Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It was renamed to Serbia and Montenegro Cup in 2003 when the country changed its official name. The cup was organized by the Football Association of Serbia and Montenegro.

This tournament was played for a total of 15 seasons, including the 1991–92 season which started as a SFR Yugoslavia cup, but ended as a Serbia and Montenegro (FR Yugoslavia) cup after the other republics of the SFR Yugoslavia declared their independence and their clubs withdrew from the tournament.[1] The tournament was dominated by Serbian clubs with no Montenegrin sides ever reaching the final. Belgrade club Red Star were the most successful club, reaching the final in all but two seasons and winning the tournament nine times.

Between 1992 and 1998, the finals were played on a home and away basis, but this was later changed to a single-game final.

After Montenegro proclaimed its independence in 2006, both football associations got to work on organizing a new tournament. The Football Association of Serbia formed a deal with Carlsberg affiliate Lav pivo and quickly formed the Lav Kup Srbije. Football Association of Montenegro had much more trouble organizing their cup tournament as most of the organizers of the Serbia and Montenegro cup were in Serbia and they directly inherited the rights to the former association as well as cup tournament. However, after a long and difficult struggle, the Montenegrin Cup was formed.
