|2019–20 FAW Women's Cup|
The FA of Wales Women's Challenge Cup, better known as the Welsh Women's Cup is the national women's football cup competition for Wales. It is run by the Football Association of Wales.
As Wales had no national league for women until the establishment of the Welsh Premier League in the 2009–10 season the Welsh Cup was the only ticket to the Women's Champions League. Unlike in the men's game, however, English-oriented clubs are allowed to participate. Cardiff City won eight consecutive cups from 2003 to 2010.
Following a number of high scoring, one sided matches in the opening round of the 2012–13 competition, the league's unofficial website called on the FAW to consider revamping the competitionto avoid such embarrassing results in future seasons and encourage greater lower league participation.
