The Singapore FA Cup (known as the Singapore Pools FA Cup for sponsorship reasons) is an annual football competition.[1]

Initially held for clubs from the S.League from 1996-1998, the Football Association of Singapore decided to change the format of the cup to allow only teams from the National Football League to take part in the knock out competition from 1999 as so that the S.League clubs can focus on the Singapore Cup, a cup competition which was created in 1998 to run concurrently with the S.League regular season.[2]

After the Singapore Cup and League Cup, the Singapore FA Cup is the next major cup competition in Singapore. For a number of years, the FA Cup was solely restricted to NFL Clubs. They seized the opportunity and produced a string of famous winners, while the Singapore Cup carried on as the knock-out competition for S.League teams and invited foreign clubs. With NFL clubs having had the trophy reserved for them over those seven years, FAS decided to introduce stronger challenges again and in 2006 the Prime League teams of S.League clubs joined the fray.[3] The team matchups were drawn out of a hat against one another for the initial 2006 and 2007 seasons before being seeded into two groups after 2008.
