2016–17 Ukrainian Cup

The Ukrainian Cup (Ukrainian: Кубок України) is a national knockout cup competition in Ukrainian association football, run by the Football Federation of Ukraine. The competition is conducted almost exclusively among professional clubs.[1] Since the 2003/04 season, the Cup winner qualifies to play the Ukrainian Premier League winner for the Ukrainian Super Cup.

Current format[edit]

The format of this competition consists of two stages - the qualification with two rounds and the main event with four rounds and the final game.[2] The competition involves all professional clubs and the two finalists of the Ukrainian Amateur Cup (since 2011).

Past variations of the competition involved a home-away type of elimination, but the Ukrainian Cup has since changed to a single game per round format. In more recent years, a conditional replay game was introduced to avoid penalty shootouts. Cup draws may be conducted for two consecutive rounds, but usually they are done before each following round. The lower division teams are usually awarded the home-field advantage (or the first leg at home in case of a two-leg round).

Organization[edit]

Ukrainian Football Amateur Association[edit]

The Ukrainian Cup competition is primarily limited to the professional level clubs. Prior to 1996, the Cup was open to cup winners of all Ukrainian oblasts, but was eventually simplified. In 1996, amateur clubs were omitted from participation in the Ukrainian Cup. In 1997 and 1998, only winners of the Ukrainian Amateur Cup were allowed to participate. In 1999, a new tournament, the Ukrainian Second League Cup was established and amateur clubs became completely restricted. In 2006, amateur clubs once again were allowed to compete by qualifying as the winner of the Amateur Cup. Since 2011, both finalists have qualified for the Ukrainian Cup.

Professional clubs organizations[edit]

From the Round of 32 which is officially considered to be the first round of competition, the tournament is administrated by the Premier League (created in 2008). Earlier rounds are under the administration of PFL Ukraine. Until the organization of the PFL in 1996, the tournament and league competitions were both administered by the Football Federation of Ukraine.

History[edit]

The All-Ukrainian Cup competitions began in 1937 involving top flight clubs in the nation such as Dynamo Kyiv. However, after World War II, the following editions of the national Cup were downgraded to a regional cup competition limited to amateur clubs participating in the KFK (clubs of fitness collectives). Those competitions included the Cup of Ukrainian SSR as the supplemental elimination tournament along with league competition.

The first Cup competition in independent Ukraine had an unlikely winner, similar to the championship of 1992. The main contender, Dynamo Kyiv, settled for a draw in its first game at home against, what used to be an amateur club in Soviet times, Skala Stryi and in the following quarterfinals round, was defeated by the FC Torpedo Zaporizhia. Eventually that competition was won by Chornomorets Odessa.

In 2008, the Football Federation of Ukraine signed an agreement with the company 'DATAGROUP'[3] that agreed to act as the main sponsor of the tournament for the next four years. DATAGROUP introduced its new version of the cup trophy,[4] the first winner of which became Shakhtar Donetsk.[5] In 2010, there was an attempt to launch an independent website for the competition, which was active for only couple of months.

Cup of the Ukrainian SSR[edit]

First Ukrainian SSR Cup on cover of the Soviet Union

Unlike its replacement, the Cup of Ukrainian SSR was a competition involving ~40,000 clubs of different levels. Participation in the competition was allowed for all teams as long as none of the players competed in the Soviet Cup simultaneously.
