The Waratah Cup is a knockout cup competition in New South Wales, run by the governing body of football in NSW, Football NSW. Teams competing in the Waratah Cup come from the NPL NSW, NPL NSW 2, NSW State League Division One, NSW State League Division Two and many semi-professional association clubs within New South Wales. The Cup is held during the NPL NSW and state league seasons. Since 2014 preliminary rounds of the Waratah Cup have been used to determine the NSW entrants to the national FFA Cup. [1]

History[edit]

The Waratah cup commenced in 1991 teams featuring clubs from the top 4 tiers of football in New South Wales, as well as teams from non-league associations.[2]

Blacktown City Football Club have won the cup the most times with four wins, with Sydney United having won it three times. Sydney Crescent Star are the only non-league team to win the competition in 2004. Sutherland Sharks took out their first title in 2009.
