The Prince Roy Cup a friendly football tournement organized by the Federation of Sealand for members that are still active in a cup competition late in the season and are therefore unable to compete in the regular Sealand Cup. The Prince Roy Cup was founded in the autumn of 2018 when the idea for such a competition was proposed by Spammie. The competition is usually only played when there is a sufficient number of participants.

Note 1: the final (and the fifth place match) of Prince Roy Cup II was not played until two seasons later.
Note 2: there was no actual final match in Prince Roy Cup III. The winner was decided by a round-robin group, with the last match pitting the top two ranked teams against each other. The match between RKTVV and FC Jaapo can be considered as de facto final of Prince Roy Cup III.
Note 3: there was no actual final match in Prince Roy Cup V. The winner was decided by a round-robin group, but it was not until the final round (at 10 January 2021) before the winner was known. The match between winner FC Biegstraaten and runner-up Appy United - which turned out to be decisive for the championship - was played earlier in the tournament (at 30 December 2020 in Het IJskonijnenhol) and ended in 0–0, with FC Biegstraaten winning the penalty shoot-out 3–1.

Top scorers

Golden Boot

The top goalscorer of the Prince Roy Cup wins the Golden Boot. The second-placed player receives the Silver Boot, while the Bronze Boot is for the third-placed player in the classification. In case of a tie, the player scoring the highest number of field goals is ranked higher. The number of different matches with at least one goal is the second tie-breaking criterium, the importance of the scored goals is the third tie-breaker and the average number of goals per minute played is the fourth tie-breaker.
