The Continental Cup[1][2] (Russian: Кубок Континента, Kubok Kontinenta), also known as the Kontinental Cup,[3] is the trophy presented to the winner of the regular season of the Kontinental Hockey League, i.e. the team with the most points at the end of the regular season.

The name and trophy were introduced during the second season of the competition. In the first season it was simply named the regular season winner. The name of the trophy was voted on by visitors of the KHL website. Other candidates for the name of the trophy included Leader Cup, Suvorov Cup, Peoples' Friendship Cup and «Our Game» Cup. More than 24,000 people voted. Continental Cup received 58.57% of the votes (14 118 votes).[4]

During the history of KHL, the winner of Continental Cup has never won Gagarin Cup in the same season.
