Greek Cup Rules

The rules and regulations of the Greek Cup tournament for season 2015-16 were announced at the official website of the Hellenic Football Federation on 10/07/15. You may click here to see the original article (unfortunately it is only available in Greek). I skipped the paragraphs that are not directly associated with betting and here is what you really need to know before placing your bets:

Attention: Only Super League and Football League clubs are allowed to participate in a total of 6 Rounds.

The First Round: 18 teams, 14 qualify automatically

Football League has 18 clubs in season 2015-16. In order to come up with the 16 teams that will qualify to the Second Round, the Hellenic Football Federation decided four teams will be randomly chosen to play in two pairs. The two pairs will face each other in double matches (away goals rule). The ones that qualify will join the remaining 14 clubs to the Second Round.

The Second Round: 32 teams

In this stage the 16 Super League clubs enter the tournament. A new draw takes place to determine 8 Groups that will have ONLY two teams from each division.

  • Attention: Single matches, the away goals rule does not apply.
  • All Football League clubs will be scheduled to have two matches at home meaning that the Super League clubs are obligated to play two matches away.
  • The teams that will finish in places 1 and 2 qualify to the next round.

The Third Round: 16 teams

A new draw takes place between the eight teams that finished first in their group and the ones that finished second to determine a total 8 pairs.

  • The clubs will face each other in double matches (away goals rule).
  • A total of 8 teams will qualify to the next round.

The Fourth Round: Quarter Finals

A new draw takes place to determine the 4 pairs of the Quarter Finals.

  • The clubs will face each other in double matches (away goals rule).
  • A total of 4 teams will qualify to the next round.

The Fifth Round: Semi Finals

A new draw will take place to determine the 2 pairs of the Semi Finals.

  • The clubs will face each other in double matches (away goals rule).
  • The two teams that are left qualify to the Final.
