The Icelandic Men's Basketball Company Cup, commonly known as the Men's Company Cup (Icelandic: Fyrirtækjabikar karla), was an annual basketball competition between clubs in Iceland that was organized by the Icelandic Basketball Federation. It was Iceland's second-tier cup competition, and is not to be confused with Iceland's first-tier cup competition, the Icelandic Cup.

History and format[edit]

The Company Cup was founded in 1996[1] and its first edition, bearing the name Lengjubikarinn after its sponsor Lengjan, took place in October and November that year.[2] It included all twelve Úrvalsdeild karla teams and the top four teams from the second-tier 1. deild karla.[3] The first cup was won by Keflavík after it defeated KR in the Cup final, 101-107.[4][5]

Its last edition to date was held in 2015 where Stjarnan defeated Þór Þorlákshöfn in the Cup finals, 72-58.[6][7]
