About the Russian Cup

The Russian Cup is an annual competition for Russian football clubs.

Not only professional football clubs have the right to participate in the Russian Cup, so do amateur clubs representing winners of regional competitions of the third and fourth divisions, which have passed the certification of the Professional Football League.

The winner of the Cup faces the champion of Russia in a Super Cup match and also receives the right to play in the Europa League.

The Russian Cup is also held for women’s national teams.

Since 1991, the Russian Cup has been held (at that time, it was the Soviet Cup). Until 2006, the tournament was managed by the Association of Women’s Football of Russia. Since 2006, overall control of the Championship and the Russian Cup is carried out by the Russian Football Union (RFS).

The Russian Cup is a passing prize. The winner is awarded its replica. There are two cases in which the original trophy is awarded:

  1.     If the club is a five-time tournament winner;
  2.     If the club has won three tournaments in a row.

From the 2021-2022 season, BETCITY has become the main sponsor of the Russian Cup. With the new sponsor, there have been changes to the fees for participants in the tournament. The BETCITY winner of the Russian Cup will receive 40,000,000 roubles. It is also possible to watch the matches on YouTube or in the BETCITY app.
