The Faroese Football Cup ( Faroese Steypakappingin ) is the cup competition for men's football club teams and has been played since 1955. Since 1999 it has been called Løgmanssteypið ("Cup of Løgmaður "). Accordingly, he is awarded by the Prime Minister of the country. The winner is eligible to qualify for the UEFA Europa League .
In addition to the national cup, there are separate cup competitions for young people ( Th. Dam & Co. Steypið ), boys ( Blaðberasteypið ), little boys ( Cadbury steypið ), women from the 1st and 2nd division ( Steypakappingin kvinnur ), girls 14-17 ( Mótasteypið ) and little girls 12–14 ( Niels L. Arge steypið ).
When the cup was introduced, participation was initially only made possible for top division clubs . In the first year semi-finals and subsequent finals were played, in the following years, instead of the semi-finals, various elimination games were played in order to determine the two finalists. From 1958 to 1964 KÍ Klaksvík refrained from participating. Two finals were played between 1974 and 1978. From 1976 there was again a fixed semi-final with four teams, since 1978 these encounters have been played back and forth. In 1979, all second and third division teams took part in the cup matches for the first time, and since 1980 the fourth division also took part. Until 1982 this included the A, B, C and D teams of the clubs represented in the respective league, which initially played off the participants for the next round, with the higher-class teams only entering the competition later . Since 1983 only A teams have been allowed to play in the cup.
From 1995 a group stage was held after the preliminary round. From four groups of four teams each qualified for the next round against every other team in the first and second place in each group. In 1998 the number of groups was reduced to three, with the two best third-placed finishers qualifying for the next round in addition to the first and second placed. In 2005, the group phase was abolished again due to the expansion to 27 match days in the first division .
The finals were played on artificial turf from 1979 to 2009 in the Gundadalur Stadium in Tórshavn . The exception was the period from 2000 to 2005, in which the finals in the Tórsvøllur Stadium in Tórshavn were played on natural grass. In 2010 and 2011 the finals took place in the Injektor Arena in Klaksvík , and in 2012 it will be played again in the Tórsvøllur Stadium. In the final, a replay was scheduled until 1996 if it was a draw after 90 minutes (until 1989) or after 30 minutes of extra time . From 2001 to 2005 the final took place on Ólavsøka , the national holiday of the Faroe Islands, and then only once again in 2009.
The cup is played in a pure knockout system . With currently 18 participating A-teams from the four Faroese leagues , 14 are directly qualified for the round of 16, including all first and second division teams of the respective season. The remaining third and fourth division teams play the remaining two participants for the round of 16. Here and in all subsequent rounds, there is a wild drawing, i.e. without any seeding list. Lower-class teams do not enjoy automatic home rights in the matches. With the exception of the semi-finals, which are played back and forth and in which the away goals rule is applied, all games are decided in a single game. If there is a tie after 90 minutes, there will be a 30-minute extension. If there is still no decision after that, a penalty shoot-out follows .
The winner is eligible to participate in the 2nd qualifying round for the UEFA Europa League . If they become Faroese champions in the same year , the cup finalists will take part in the first qualifying round instead.
