Format[edit]

In the 1972–73 Cypriot Cup, participated all the teams of the Cypriot First Division, the Cypriot Second Division and 8 of the 14 teams of the Cypriot Third Division (first eight of the league table; cup took place after the end of the league).

The competition consisted of six knock-out rounds. In all rounds each tie was played as a single leg and was held at the home ground of the one of the two teams, according to the draw results. Each tie winner was qualifying to the next round. If a match was drawn, extra time was following. If extra time was drawn, there was a replay at the ground of the team who were away for the first game. If the rematch was also drawn, then extra time was following and if the match remained drawn after extra time the winner was decided by penalty shoot-out.

The cup winner secured a place in the 1973–74 European Cup Winners' Cup.[1]
