The game has a Cup competition (you can customise the name of the competition).
It is a knock out cup with one game per round. If you lose a cup game you are out of the cup. All 4 divisions play in the cup and if you play teams from higher divisions than your team they will be stronger and more difficult to beat.
The Cup matches interweave with the league matches. You can change the name of the cup competition in the customise section of the game.
