In association football a League Cup generally signifies a cup competition for which entry is restricted only to teams in the top national league (some may include teams from immediately inferior divisions, as evidence by the Football League Cup). This marks the difference from the primary national cups, which are generally also open to teams from lower leagues, often as far down as regional amateur leagues.

League cups were generally introduced after the Second World War - for example, the Scottish League Cup, which started in 1946 - although in other countries, they were created following a rise in the number of floodlit stadiums, allowing regular midweek matches.

In certain countries, the League Cup had, or in some cases still has, group stages in the early stages. These often opened the season, before the league.
