2022 Copa Federación

The current Copa Federación, created in 1994, is not considered by the RFEF the same as the original one. A similar competition with regional qualification tournaments for amateur clubs (including the affiliated teams of the professional clubs, such as Real Madrid C and FC Barcelona C), the Campeonato de España de Aficionados, operated from 1930 until 1987,[1] but is also considered to be distinct from the Copa Federación.

Regional tournamentsEdit

  1. ^ a b Due to its size, Andalusia has two Tercera División leagues (one for Western/Lower Andalusia [es], the other for Eastern/Upper Andalusia [es]) and operated separate qualifying tournaments for the Copa Federación for each section until 2020, when the Andalusia Football Federation (RFAF) established a trophy for the entire region, the two finalists taking the qualification spots.[2]
