Description:
The Russian Cup (; formally known as Pirelli — Russian Cup) is a football competition held annually by the Football Union of Russia for professional football clubs.

Participants

All clubs from the Russian Premier League, First Division and Second Division as well as amateur clubs compete for the Russian Cup.

Competition system

The competition is held under knockout format. Second Division teams start from 1/512, 1/256, or 1/128 final stage, depending on the number of teams in the corresponding Second Division zone. First Division teams enter the tournament at 1/32 final stage, and Premier League teams at 1/16 final stage. All ties are one-legged. The final tie is played as a single match; traditionally, it had been held in Moscow, but since 2010 has moved around the country. First round matches are usually played in April, with the final being played the following year in May, so each Russian Cup competition lasts for more than a year.
