Current format

The format of this competition consists of two stages - the qualification with two rounds and the main event with four rounds and the final game. The first round of the main event starts with the Round of 32 which involves clubs of the Premier division (16) with another 16 clubs of lower divisions that qualify through the qualification stage. In competition participate all professional clubs and, since 2011, two finalist of the Ukrainian Amateur Cup.

There were some variations to the format throughout the history of the competition, yet most of the time that one is being used most often. The first editions involved a home-away type of elimination, but in course of history it changed to a single game per round. In some latter editions a conditional replay game was introduced to avoid case of a penalty shootout.

Draws may be conducted for two consecutive rounds, but usually they are done before each following round. Also usually the lower division teams are awarded the home-field advantage or the first leg on their home turf in case of two-leg round. The final round consists of a single match that traditionally takes place at the national stadium, Olimpiysky, however since the preparation to the European championship 2012 that tradition has been broken.

Since 1999 each club is represented by its senior club in the competition, however some exception were made to the rule. Before 1999 a club could have all its registered teams (second, third, etc.) compete. In 2008 an exception was made for FC Yednist-2 Plysky allowing it to compete as a winner of the Ukrainian Amateur cup.

Organization

Ukrainian Football Amateur Association

Mainly, the competition is limited to the professional level clubs.

Initially until 1996, the cup was open to cup winners of all Ukrainian regions (oblasts) or their best representative (at the very least), but eventually it was simplified. In 1996 there was revived an amateur cup competition that existed before in the 1970s and amateur clubs were omitted from participation in the Ukrainian Cup. In 1997 and in 1998 only winners of the Amateur Cup were allowed to participate. In 1999 there was established yet another tournament the Ukrainian Second League Cup and amateur clubs became completely restricted.

In 2006 amateur clubs once again were allowed to compete through qualification as a winner of the Amateur Cup. Since 2011 both finalists qualify for the Ukrainian Cup.

Professional clubs organizations

From the Round of 32 (1/16th of final) which is officially considered to be the first round of the competition, it is being administrated by the Football Federation of Ukraine.

History

The All-Ukrainian Cup competitions started back in 1937 at first involving the best clubs in the nation such as Dynamo Kyiv. However, after World War II the following editions of the national Cup were downgraded to a regional cup competitions limiting to amateur clubs mostly participating in the what was known as KFK (clubs of fitness collectives). The KFK competitions were intermediate regional amateur competitions and administrated by the respective republican federation where they have taken place. For example the KFK competitions in Ukraine were administrated by the Football Federation of the Ukrainian SSR. Those competitions included the Cup of Ukrainian SSR as the supplemental elimination tournament along with league competitions.

The first Cup competition in the independent Ukraine brought as much surprises as the championship of 1992. The main contender, Dynamo Kyiv, settled in a draw in its first game at home against, what used to be an amateur club in Soviet times, Skala Stryi and in the next round, quarterfinals, was defeated by the FC Torpedo Zaporizhia. Eventually that season was won by Chornomorets Odessa. Nevertheless, since then Dynamo Kyiv continues to dominate not only in the amount of the gained championship titles, but in amount of the Cups won as of today.

Monday, on May 5, 2008 the Football Federation of Ukraine signed an agreement with the company DATAGROUP[1] that agreed to act as the main sponsor of the tournament. The contract was signed for four years and scheduled to expire after 2011/2012 season. DATAGROUP introduced its new version of the cup trophy,[2] the first winner of which became Shakhtar Donetsk.[3] The rain showers that accompanied the final match on May 7, 2008 and stretched way past it did not spoil the holiday spirit of the Miners who during the award ceremony were handed the trophy by the President of Ukraine. In 2010 there was an attempt to launch an independent website for the competition, which was active for only couple of months. Quarterfinals are to be played on April 11, 2012 for the 2012 season.[4]
