KNVB Amateur Cup

The KNVB Amateur Cup (Dutch: KNVB Beker voor amateurs) is the cup competition for amateur football clubs in the Netherlands. The winner qualifies for the amateur super cup match against the national Hoofdklasse champion.

The cup is contested by the winners of the district cups (Dutch: districtsbekers) in the six districts of the Royal Dutch Football Association: West 1, West 2, South 1, South 2, East and North. The six teams face each other in a knock-out competition, starting in the quarter finals. Two clubs receive a bye, but they will have to play an away game in the semi-finals.

The KNVB Amateur Cup was first contested in the 1980-81 season, replacing the KNVB Saturday Amateur Cup and KNVB Sunday Amateur Cup (see Hoofdklasse#Background for more on Saturday and Sunday football in the Netherlands).

The structure of the cup competition has changed throughout the years. For a number of years, the clubs were placed in two pools of three teams each. Matches were played in two halves of 20 or 30 minutes each, with all group matches played on a single day. The final was held on another day, and was played in two halves of 45 minutes. Between 1996-97 and 2000–01, nine clubs took part, because the Royal Dutch Football Association then consisted of nine districts. Until 1997, the reserve teams of professional football clubs took part in the district cup competitions; two of them won the KNVB Amateur Cup: Ajax Reserves in 1983-84 and SC Heerenveen Reserves in 1990-91. From the 1997-98 season onwards, the reserve teams play in the KNVB Reserve Cup.
