The 2014 Singapore Cup is the 17th season of Singapore's annual premier club football tournament organised by Football Association of Singapore. Due to sponsorship reasons, the Singapore Cup is also known as the RHB Singapore Cup. Home United are the defending champions, having won the trophy six times.[1]

Teams[edit]

A total of 16 teams participate in the 2014 Singapore Cup. Eleven of the teams are from domestic S.League and the other five are invited from the Philippines, Cambodia and Laos. Courts Young Lions will not participate in this year's edition of Singapore Cup.

Format[edit]

The sixteen teams were drawn into two distinct pools for the preliminary round. They will play against one another in a single-legged knockout basis. Winners of this round will progress and advance to the quarter-finals. Thereafter, matches are played in two legs with the exception of the one-match finals. Unlike the previous season, away goals rule does not apply.

For any match in the knockout stage, a draw after 90 minutes of regulation time is followed by two 15 minute periods of extra time to determine a winner. If the teams are still tied, a penalty shoot-out is held to determine a winner.
