The U17 cup final was the only one of the four categories that did not feature the team of Shkendija. Akademija Pandev and Vardar faced each other at the same stadium in Ohrid in which all youth cup finals took place. The winner was decided with a loan goal scored three minutes from time by substitute player Nikola Tasev who brought the trophy to the Strumica based team. Keep in mind that in both U17 and U16 categories a match lasts 80 minutes instead of 90.
