The 2017 Latvian Football Cup was the 23rd version of the tournament. This version of the competition began on 28 May 2017 and ended on 18 October 2017.[1] The winners of this season's cup earned a place in the first qualifying round of the 2018–19 Europa League.[2]

In a change from recent seasons, the tournament was played in one calendar year instead of over two years. The tournament was played in its entirety in 2017[3]

Ventspils were the defending champions.
