2017–18 Albanian Cup

The Albanian Football Cup (Albanian: Kupa e Shqipërisë) is the main "knockout" competition in Albanian football. The competition started in 1939 as Kupa e Mbretit (English:"The King's Cup"). Just after a year the cup was suspended as the Second World War started. It started again in 1948 as "Kupa e Republikes" (English:"Republic Cup") and from 1991 as "Kupa e Shqipërisë" (Albanian Cup). Today it is the second most important competition in Albania after Albanian Superliga. The winners of the Cup automatically earn the right to participate in the 1st qualifying round of Europa League. Runners-up do not earn any European participation.
