The 2014–15 Toto Cup Al was the 30th season of the third-important football tournament in Israel since its introduction and the 10th tournament involving Israeli Premier League clubs only. The tournament resumed after the planned competition for the previous season was cancelled.

The competition was held in two stages. First, fourteen Premier League teams were divided into three groups, five teams in groups A and C and four teams in group B, the teams playing against each other once. The best 3 teams from groups A and C and the best 2 teams from group B advanced to the quarter finals, which was played over two legged ties.
