Cup (Ukraine), 2023/2024, all matches

The Ukrainian Football Cup, also known as the Ukrainian Cup, was founded in 1992 and is one of the most important football competitions in the country. The tournament features teams from all levels of Ukrainian football, from the Premier League to amateur clubs, making it particularly interesting and diverse.

The Ukrainian Cup format includes several rounds, starting with preliminary stages, in which teams from the lower divisions participate. The Premier League clubs join at the 1/16 finals stage. All matches are played on a knockout system, which adds intrigue and unpredictability.

Shakhtar Donetsk is the most successful club in the history of the Ukrainian Cup, having won this trophy 14 times. Other successful teams are Dynamo Kyiv and Dnipro, who have also made significant contributions to the history of the tournament.

The 2023/2024 season ended with the final match, in which Shakhtar Donetsk defeated Vorskla Poltava with a score of 2:1. The final match was held at the Olympic Stadium in Kyiv and attracted a large crowd of fans. The winning goal for Shakhtar was scored by Oleksandr Zubkov in the 60th minute, which became the key moment of the match.

One of the highlights of the tournament was the semi-final game between Shakhtar and Dynamo Kyiv, which ended with Shakhtar winning in extra time with a score of 3:2. These games show the high level of competition and tension in the fight for the trophy.

In the 2023/2024 season, Poliesie from the First League reached the semi-finals, beating Dnipro-1 and Oleksandriya. These unexpected results highlight the unpredictability of the Ukrainian Cup, where every team has a chance to succeed, regardless of the division.

Among the significant players of the Ukrainian Cup, legends such as Andriy Shevchenko and Oleh Blokhin can be singled out, who made a significant contribution to the success of their teams. In recent years, Viktor Kovalenko and Junior Moraes have become bright figures of the tournament, demonstrating high results in their clubs.

The Ukrainian Cup is also an important platform for the development of young players. Young footballers get the opportunity to prove themselves at a high level, which contributes to their professional growth and attracting attention from leading clubs. Mykhailo Mudryk, who began his career at Shakhtar, became one of the stars of the tournament before moving to European clubs.

The history of the Ukrainian Cup is full of dramatic moments. For example, the 2018 final between Shakhtar and Dynamo Kyiv, which ended with Dynamo winning in a penalty shootout, became one of the most memorable matches in the history of the tournament.

The Ukrainian Cup remains an important event in national football, giving teams the opportunity to compete for a prestigious trophy and demonstrate their skills on the national stage.
