The 2012 Baltic Cup was a football competition which was held on 1–3 June 2012 in Estonia.[1]


For the first time, Finland took part in the competition. As a result of this, the round-robin format is changed to knock-out tournament, as Latvia did not agree to play more than two matches.[1] As a result of this, penalty shootout will be used to decide the winner if a match is drawn after 90 minutes.[2]


Tamme Stadium in Tartu will be used for the matches involving Estonia and Võru Stadium in Võru will be the host for the other two matches. Tehvandi Stadium in Otepää and Viljandi linnastaadion in Viljandi were also to be used, but were unavailable for the time period.[3]
