The 2020–21 KNVB Cup, for sponsoring reasons officially called the TOTO KNVB Beker, was the 103rd season of the annual Dutch national football cup competition. It commenced on 29 August 2020 with the first of two preliminary rounds, and concluded on 18 April 2021 with the final played at De Kuip in Rotterdam.

Ajax are defending champions won the 2019 final, as the 2020 final wasn't played due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the Netherlands.

As winners, Ajax will participate in the 2021 Johan Cruyff Shield against the 2020–21 Eredivisie champions.

Effects of the COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all six district cups were abandoned, before any of them had reached the semi-finals. This meant that none of the 24 qualifiers from the Hoofdklasse and lower were known at the time of the abandonment. The KNVB decided through a scheme which four teams would qualify per district. The same scheme is also used when a team reaches the semi-finals of the district cup but wins promotion to the Derde Divisie in the same season (and by that qualifying in two ways for the KNVB Cup)

On 14 October 2020, the KNVB announced that all first round matches involving amateur teams would be postponed until 1 and 2 December as a result of new measures taken by the government to stop the spread of the virus. If the amateur teams are still not allowed to play matches by 2 December they will be excluded from further participation. On 17 November 2020, the KNVB's director of amateur football Jan Dirk van der Zee confirmed that the KNVB Cup would continue without the amateur teams.
