The Georgeland Football Association Cup, informally known as the Georgeland Cup, is the main soccer knockout tournament in Georgeland, played between all teams in the national competition with league status. The tournament is played in a series of stages culminating in a Cup Final, usually held in June. The cup has no qualifiying stage and all league teams are eligible. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 cup final was held on September 19. 

As there are a total of 40 teams, at some stages of the event a loss does not necessarily mean knockout - best-placed losers can advance to the third stage. Santa Christina United won the tournament in 2017 following a stage-two loss, and Lylecity FC were runners-up the following year despite a defeat in the second round. 

Every year the Cup champion and the top-ranked team in the Primary Division play the Champion of Champions Cup. On rare occasions, most recently in 2013, the Cup champion was also the League champion, winning the Champion of Champions Cup by default.

The current Cup holders are Zigit City, who won their first Cup final against Bonneville FC. Zigit, who ranked tenth of twelve on the Primary Division ladder, are the lowest-ranked team ever to win. 

The first Cup was played during the 1968-69 season. Santa Christina United have won the cup seventeen times, more than any other team, and have played in 25 cup finals, again more than any other team. During its Golden Age (1997-2007) the team won the Cup three consecutive times (in 1999, 2000 and 2001), one of only two teams (the other being Emilypolis FC) to do so.
