The Coupe Charles Simon, commonly known as the Coupe de France (-frkup də fʁɑ̃s, French Cup), is the premier knockout cup competition in French football organized by the French Football Federation. The cup competition is named after Charles Simon, a French sportsman who died while serving in World War I and is open to all amateur and professional football clubs in France, including clubs based in the overseas departments and territories. The final is played at the Stade de France and the winner of the Coupe de France qualifies for the playoff round of the UEFA Europa League. The current champions are Paris Saint-Germain, who defeated Monaco 1 � 0 in the final of the 2009 � 10 competition.

The Coupe de France was first held in 1917 � 18 and, during the 2007 � 08 season, celebrated its 90th anniversary. Combined with random draws and one-off matches (no replays), the Coupe de France can be difficult for the bigger clubs to win. The competition is usually beneficial to the amateur clubs as it forces higher-ranked clubs, usually professional clubs, to always play as the away team when drawn against lower-league opposition. However, despite the advantages, only one amateur club has actually reached the final since professionalism was introduced in French football in 1932: Calais RUFC in 2000. Both clubs who have won the competition and were not playing in Ligue 1 were professional, Le Havre in 1959 and Guingamp in 2009. The Coupe de France is managed and ran by the Coupe de France Commission, whose president is former French international Jean Djorkaeff.

7,317 clubs participated in the 2009 � 10 cup competition.
