The Copa Paulista de Futebol, formerly known as Copa FPF, also sometimes called Copa Federação Paulista de Futebol or São Paulo State Cup, is a tournament organized by Federação Paulista de Futebol every second half of the season. It is played by São Paulo state teams not playing in the Brazilian League and by reserve teams of Paulista teams playing in the Brazilian League.

The competition has already had several different names. In 2001, it was named Copa Coca-Cola (Coca-Cola Cup), due to the company's sponsorship.[1] In 2002, it was named Copa Futebol Interior (São Paulo Countryside Football Cup).[2] In 2003 it was named Copa Estado de São Paulo (São Paulo State Cup).[1] From 2004 to 2007 it was named Copa FPF.[1] Since 2008 it is named Copa Paulista de Futebol.[3]

Since 2005, the competition winner gained the right to compete in the following year's Copa do Brasil and the runner-up disputes the following year's Campeonato Brasileiro Série C. Since 2007, the Copa Paulista de Futebol winner competes in Recopa Sul-Brasileira.[4]
