The National Amateur Cup is an annual knockout football competition that takes place in Malta.

The tournament is open to all the teams that take part in the National Amateur League, the third and last level of Maltese football and some teams from the Gozo Football League.

The teams that reach the semi-final stage are allowed to take part in the Maltese FA Trophy preliminary round.[1]


The tournament was created in 2020, following a general restructuring of the Maltese football system by the Malta Football Association. It was decided to create a new single-elimination competition reserved for the teams from the lower categories.[1]

The first season of the cup started on October 2020[2] and it was interrupted and later declared cancelled on 9 April 2021 due to the decision of the MFA to stop all the competitions because of COVID-19 pandemic in Malta.[3] Munxar Falcons and Żebbuġ Rovers were the first two Gozitan teams that played in the competition.[4]
