Svenska Cupen

Svenska Cupen (Swedish pronunciation: , The Swedish Cup) is a knockout cup competition in Swedish football and the main Swedish football cup. Svenska Cupen usually refers to the men's tournament, although a women's tournament is also held. Each year 98 teams compete, comprising the 16 teams from Allsvenskan and the 16 teams of Superettan together with 68 teams from lower tiers of the league system. The winners qualify for the qualifying stages of the UEFA Europa League. The winner is awarded Gustaf VI Adolf Cup. Compared to cups in many other countries, Svenska Cupen attracts considerably less public interest and even the cup final is rarely sold out. Consequently, the Swedish Football Association has experimented with the format in order to raise the profile of the cup. The final has been staged at a neutral venue, at the national stadium as well as being played as a two-leg match. Svenska Cupen was first held in 1941. The current holders of Svenska Cupen are BK Häcken who beat AFC Eskilstuna in the 2019 final. Malmö FF are the most successful club of the competition having won 14 titles, the latest in 1989.
