The 1920–21 National Challenge Cup was the annual open cup held by the United States Football Association now known as the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.


On September 25, 1920, the National Challenge Cup held a drawing for the first round of the 1921 National Challenge Cup. The drawing paired eighty-five entrants, down from 99 the previous year being due to the fact the entrance fee had been raised from $5 to $10.[1] The cup a single elimination format consisting of six rounds and a single game final. The entrants were dividing into an eastern and a western division which led to a final pitting St. Louis Scullin Steel F.C. from the west and Brooklyn Robins Dry Dock from the east.
