What is it the Suomen Cup?
Established in 1955, the Finnish Suomen Cup is the primary domestic cup competition in Finnish football, featuring all 125 clubs registered to the FA of Finland.
Like most domestic cups in European countries, the winner is granted entry into the following season’s Europa League.
Finland’s other cup competition, the Finnish Liiga Cup, was abolished following the 2016 tournament. This was replaced by the group stage of the Suomen Cup beginning in the 2017 season, extending the tournament and putting more emphasis on the more historic trophy.
HJK and FC Haka are the cup’s most successful clubs, with 12 wins each. Reipas Lahti come in third, with the name engraved seven times on the trophy.
