2020 Rock Cup

The Rock Cup is Gibraltar's premier cup football competition, and has been organised annually by the Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) since 1895. The winner of the 2014 Rock Cup was to be the first one to participate in the Europa League,[1] but as Lincoln Red Imps had already been titled league champion, thus qualifying for 2014–15 UEFA Champions League, the losing finalist College Europa qualified for the first qualifying round. Due to a sponsorship with Gibtelecom, the cup is currently known as the Gibtelecom Rock Cup.


The Rock Cup is entered by all teams of Gibraltar's Premier League and Second League as well as the Under 15 national team, until 2015 when the Under 15s were not entered. It is played in a knock-out format with single legged ties. Second division sides enter in Round One with three randomly drawn teams receiving byes into the second round, where Premier Division sides will enter.

In 2014 UEFA president Michel Platini presented the trophy to the winners.[2]
