Welsh Cup er det viktigste cupmesterskapet i walisisk fotball. Cupen blir organisert av det walisiske fotballforbundet og har blitt spilt hvert år siden 1877/78, med unntak av opphold under første og andre verdenskrig.

I fotballens første år i Wales ble fotball hovedsakelig spilt i Nord-Wales, mens rugby var den foretrukne idretten i Sør-Wales. Det walisiske fotballforbundet ble stiftet i Ruabon ved Wrexham i 1876, og de holdt til i Wrexham helt til 1986. Først i 1912 vant et lag fra Sør-Wales, Cardiff City, cupen for første gang.

Cupmesteren får delta i neste sesongs UEFA-cup. (Tidligere deltok cupmestrene i Cupvinnercupen, som ble nedlagt i 1999.)

Fram til 1995 kunne klubber fra de delene av England som ligger nær grensa mot Wales, delta i Welsh Cup, men de fikk ikke delta i Cupvinnercupen dersom de ble vant cupen. Siden 1995 har bare klubber som spiller i det walisiske ligasystemet fått lov til å delta i cupen. Dette utelukker de seks walisiske klubbene Cardiff City, Swansea City, Wrexham, Newport County, Merthyr Tydfil og Colwyn Bay, som alle spiller i det engelske ligasystemet.

Den siste engelske klubben som vant Welsh Cup var Hereford United i 1990.

Finaleformer[rediger | rediger kilde]

Til og med 1961 ble det spilt én finalekamp. Ved uavgjort finale ble det spilt omkamp.

I perioden 1961/62-1970/71 ble det spilt to finalekamper, hjemme og borte, og gitt vanlige seriepoeng for seier eller uavgjort. Ved likt antall poeng etter to kamper ble det spilt en tredje, avgjørende kamp.

I perioden 1970/71-1984/85 ble det også spilt to finalekamper, hjemme og borte. Ved lik målforskjell etter to kamper ble laget som hadde scoret flest mål på bortebane, kåret til vinner.

Fra og med sesongen 1985/86 ble det igjen spilt en enkelt finalekamp, som ved uavgjort ble avgjort med ekstraomganger og eventuelt straffesparkkonkurranse.
