The George F. Donnelly Cup or National Amateur Cup is an annual amateur soccer competition organized by the United States Adult Soccer Association. It is named after George F. Donnelly, president of the former National Soccer League and prominent figure in promoting soccer in the United States.[1]

The competition includes a men's tournament and a women's tournament. Each tournament is composed of four "Regional Select" teams (one for each region in the USASA), who have competed as "State Select" teams in regional qualifying tournaments. These select teams are made up of the best amateur players within any given state's soccer association.

The Donnelly Cup, until 2009, was held each year during the Martin L. King Jr. holiday weekend in January. Prior to 2003, it was conducted during Thanksgiving Day weekend in November.

In 2010, the competition was staged during July in Lancaster, MA,[2] and won for the third time by the Connecticut State Soccer Association (CSSA) entry.
