1968 Icelandic Cup

Last updated

The 1968 Icelandic Cup was the ninth edition of the National Football Cup.


It took place between 21 July 1964 and 5 October 1964, with the final played at Melavöllur in Reykjavik. The cup was important, as winners qualified for the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup (if a club won both the league and the cup, the defeated finalists would take their place in the Cup Winners' Cup). Teams from the Úrvalsdeild karla (1st division) did not enter until the quarter finals. In prior rounds, teams from the 2. Deild (2nd division), as well as reserve teams, played in one-legged matches. In case of a draw, lots were drawn. From the semi-finals, after a replay, lots were drawn.

ÍBV Vestmannaeyjar, newly promoted to the 1. Deild won the Icelandic Cup for the first time in their history, and therefore progressed into Europe. Another first came when a reserve team reached the final - KR Reykjavik, who beat their own first team in the quarter final.
