The Coppa Italia Dilettanti (Italian for ‘Italian Amateurs Cup’) is an annual knock-out competition for teams from the sixth and seventh levels of Italian football: the Eccellenza and the Promozione. All ties except for the final, which is held at the Stadio Flaminio in Rome, are played on a home-and-away basis. The cup-winners are also awarded promotion to Serie D, the fifth-ranked league.
Prior to the 1999/2000 season the competition also included teams from Serie D. There were then two parallel knockout competitions, one for Serie D teams and one for teams from the Eccellenza and Promozione, with the winners of each sub-tournament meeting in the final. Subsequently Serie D have staged their own competition, the Coppa Italia Serie D, leaving only Eccellenza and Promozione teams to compete for the Coppa Italia Dilettanti.
