2019 Singapore Cup

The Singapore Cup is the major cup competition in Singapore football, and has existed since 1998.[1] It was renamed from the 1997 Singapore League Cup, which bears no relation to the current competition of the same name. It was sponsored by RHB, and thus officially known as the RHB Singapore Cup for sponsorship reasons. In 2019, Komoco Motors became the title sponsors of the 2019 Singapore Cup.

It is open to clubs in the Singapore Premier League. Since 2005, foreign teams from other countries in Southeast Asia have been invited to compete in the Singapore Cup. Chonburi Province FC from Thailand was the first foreign club reaching the final in 2006 (they lost 3–2 in the final to Tampines Rovers). In 2009, Bangkok Glass became the second foreign team to reach the final, losing it against Geylang United, but they beat Tampines Rovers in 2010 to become the first foreign winners of the Singapore Cup.
