The 2017–18 Coupe de France was the 101st season of the most prestigious football cup competition of France. The competition was organised by the French Football Federation (FFF) and was open to all clubs in French football, as well as clubs from the overseas departments and territories (Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Mayotte, New Caledonia (winner of 2017 New Caledonia Cup), Tahiti (winner of 2017 Tahiti Cup), Réunion, and Saint Martin).

Paris Saint-Germain were the defending champions, and won their 4th consecutive final and record 12th title overall with a 2–0 win over Les Herbiers VF in the final.[1]

Teams[edit]

Round 1 to 6[edit]

The first six rounds, and any preliminaries, are organised by the Regional Leagues and the Overseas Territories, who allow teams from within their league structure to enter at any point up to the third round. Teams from Championnat National 3 enter at the third round, those from Championnat National 2 enter at the fourth round and those from Championnat National enter at the fifth round.[2]

Round 7[edit]

The 145 qualifiers from the 6th Round of the Regional Leagues are joined by the 11 qualifiers from the Overseas Territories and the 20 teams from Ligue 2.

Seventh round[edit]

The draw for the seventh round is made in two parts. First the Overseas teams are drawn against opponents from the French League structure who have applied to potentially travel overseas. Those French teams not drawn in this part are re-entered into the main draw.

The draw for the overseas teams took place on 25 October 2017.[5] The main draw for the seventh round took place on 26 October 2017.[6]

Ties took place on 10, 11 and 12 November 2017, with matches postponed from those dates being rescheduled for 18 and 19 November.[7][8]
