The Coupe des Patriotes, also known unofficially as the Patriotes Cup in English, is a knockout tournament competition for football clubs registered as members of Football Kelssek. The trophy and the competition is named in honour of the Patriotes, one of the major republican-socialist parties in Kelssek's 1837 revolution. The Coupe des Patriotes final traditionally marks the end of Kelssek's professional football season and is one of the country's most-watched sporting events. The champion earns a spot in the IFCF Cup Winners' Cup.

Entry is open to any football club in Kelssek which is in good standing with the Football Kelssek, the sport's national association. Non-professional clubs play in the qualifying rounds before Kelssek Football League National and Conference clubs (levels 2-3 of the league system) enter the competition in the "First Round", and the KFL Championship (top division) clubs enter the Third Round. Each round's fixtures are decided by an unseeded draw (in other words, no brackets), which also determines which team will play the tie at home. Extra time and the penalty shootout are used to decide the winner if the score is tied after 90 minutes. The final venue is rotated throughout the country and announced two years in advance.

While national cups are often watched for the tantalizing possibility of lower-league teams upsetting rich professional teams, the Patriotes Cup has gained a particular reputation for upsets and underdog victories. For example, a remarkable 5 of the 11 finals have been won by the team that finished lower in the league. Clayquot City's win in the 11th Patriotes Cup made them the first team to successfully defend the trophy as well as to have won it multiple times.
