Birmingham Senior Cup

The Birmingham Senior Cup is a football competition for Birmingham County FA club teams, organized by the Birmingham County Football Association. It began in 1875 with Tipton taking the first honours in the final in 1876 and is one of the oldest county football competitions still active.

The Birmingham Senior Cup is a local cup contest, which has featured all of the West Midlands' big clubs, Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Coventry City, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion, Walsall and Wolverhampton Wanderers. However, in recent years most of the bigger clubs have tended to treat the cup as a "reserve" or "youth team" competition, giving the non-league sides a greater chance of success, while the area (and the competition)'s most successful team, Aston Villa, have not competed at all for several years.

The current champions are West Bromwich Albion, who beat Solihull Moors 2–0.
