2019–20 Russian Cup

The winner of the competition gets a spot in the UEFA Europa League group stage.

ParticipantsEdit

All clubs from the Russian Premier League, First Division and Second Division as well as amateur clubs compete for the Russian Cup.

Competition systemEdit

The competition is held under knockout format. Second Division teams start from 1/512, 1/256, or 1/128 final stage, depending on the number of teams in the corresponding Second Division zone. First Division teams enter the tournament at 1/32 final stage, and Premier League teams at 1/16 final stage. All ties are one-legged. The final tie is played as a single match; traditionally, it had been held in Moscow, but since 2009 has moved around the country. First round matches are usually played in April, with the final being played the following year in May, so each Russian Cup competition lasts for more than a year.

FinalsEdit

The Russian Cup has been played since 1992. The finals have produced the following results:
