The historic Waratah Cup is known for being one of the most prestigious Football NSW knockout competitions ever since it made its debut in 1991.
The Cup competition itself has gone through a number of name changes with the Federation Cup commencing in 1957 before it was renamed the Ascot (Craven) Cup in 1959 but then went back to its original name in 1962.
The Federation Cup name was then changed to the Waratah Cup in 1991 where Blacktown City took out the honour of lifting the coveted trophy defeating Avala 2-1.
The 2021 Waratah Cup is the 18th season of Football NSW’s knockout competition.
The Preliminary Rounds are now a part of the 2021 FFA Cup Round of 32 competition.
The 4 winners from the FFA Cup Preliminary Seventh Round qualify for the 2021 Waratah Cup.
