Cottam Cup

Australia's Oldest Running Knockout Cup

The Cottam Cup

The historic Cottam Cup, the oldest continuously played for Knock Out Competition silverware in Australia, since 1907, returns again for season 2021.

Reigning champions Ponds FC from Blacktown Districts Soccer Football Association proudly took “Johnny Home” in 2020, after an epic Final against Rydalmere FC. Both teams are committed to making history again in 2021 but so will a growing number of other clubs from all over the state as word of the significance of our Cottam Cup continues to spread… and this year’s prize money of $7,000 is also very exciting! ($5k for the winner, $2k for the runner up)
