The Banterbury Cup is the Banterbury League version of the FA Cup, where the league table is thrown out of the window and the minnows in the lower leagues can pit their fantasy football expertise and attempt to cause an upset against those teams in the top leagues. All 80 teams enter the Cup at the start of the season and ties are played every 5 game-weeks on a knockout basis until GW35 when the remaining two teams compete in the final to see who will be crowned Banterbury Cup Winner 2013/14.
