The Kuwaiti Federation Cup is a competition organised by the Kuwait Football Association, the Kuwaiti version of a League cup and has been played in its current format every year since 2008.

The first edition of the Federation Cup however was played in the 1969-70 season, although not much is known about the competition in the early years. The competition is for senior teams playing in the top tier Kuwaiti Premier League, although the 2015-16 edition saw Burgan enter to gain much needed practice before they enter the top flight.

The cup competition is predominantly played during international breaks (Group stage) and after league match days. the Tournament was abolished at the end of 2015-16 season later returned in 2017-18.
