The 2021 Lithuanian Football Cup is a single elimination association football tournament which began on 22 May 2021.[1] The winner of the competition will earn a spot in the second qualifying round of the 2022–23 UEFA Europa Conference League.[2]

Teams from A lyga, LFF I lyga and LFF II lyga participate in the tournament this year. Same as last year, lower league teams were not invited in order to shorten the competition due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The "B" teams do not participate in the cup competition. The A lyga teams enter the tournament from the first round this year.[3]

FK Panevėžys are the defending champions after winning the final in the previous season against FK Sūduva on penalties.[4]
