2019 Florian Cup

The Florian Cup (currently known as the Chicken King Florian Cup for sponsorship reasons) is the premier annual knockout football competition in men's domestic Florian Football. It is organised by Florian Football Association.

Foreign clubs

Clubs from abroad used play in the competition. These teams were usually from Etourney and for the 2018 Florian Cup, teams from the Florian Free State entered the competition. However, in 2020, teams from Etourney decided to withdraw from the competition and create their own one instead.

Format

From the 2019-20 edition onwards. All teams in the Florian football league system expect the Etournian teams will be entered into the cup. In addition, due to the withdrawal of Etournian teams, the winners of the from the previous Regional Leagues from the previous season will qualify for the First Round. All Super League Football teams will enter the Second Round of the competition whilst the teams from Super League Football 2 will enter either the First Round or Second Round depending on league position from the previous season. Florian Championship and Florian League One teams all enter the First Round.
