Royal Cup

  • The Royal Cup is a group stage and knockout cup involving the top ten teams in Super League from the previous season, the top four teams from the previous League One season, and the top two teams from the previous League Two season that will be played on Sundays after league matches during the season
  • If the previous season’s Royal Cup winner did not finish in those positions listed above, they will automatically qualify for the next season’s edition of the tournament. The 4th place team from L1 (home team) and 2nd from L2 from the previous season will then play in a one leg playoff to determine the last spot in the group stage
  • Teams will be split into four pots based upon their finish in the previous season. A random draw will be held to create four groups with four teams each
  • Teams will play the other three teams in their group once with group winners and runners-up moving on to the knockouts
  • Tiebreakers for the group stage are as follows: points, GD, GF, head-to-head record, head-to-head GD, play-off game
  • The top 4 group winners will be seeded for the Quarterfinals and cannot match up against one another. Teams may also not play a team from their group in this round. A random draw that accounts for the two rules stated above will take place to determine the matchups for the Quarterfinals
  • The Quarterfinals will be a two-legged knockout cup with away goals counting. Should teams be tied after two legs, those teams will need to start a 3rd match and play Golden Goal until a winner can be determined. If the teams are tied after two legs and both matches are draws with the same score (Ex: 1-1, 1-1 or 0-0, 0-0), use extra time and penalties instead
  • Teams that advance from the Quarterfinals will then enter the Semifinals with another random draw. From here, those two winners will move on to the Final
