The 2015–16 Toto Cup Al was the 31st season of the third-important football tournament in Israel since its introduction and the 11th tournament involving Israeli Premier League clubs only.

The competition was held in two stages. First, fourteen Premier League teams were divided into three groups, five teams in groups A and B and four teams in group C, the teams playing against each other once. The best three teams from groups A and B and the best two teams from group C advanced to the quarter-finals, which will was played over two-legged ties. The semi-finals and the final were then played as one-legged matches in a neutral venue.

The tournament started on 1 August 2015.[1][2][3] Maccabi Tel Aviv were the defending champions, after winning the previous competition.

Maccabi Petah Tikva won the title, beating Ironi Kiryat Shmona 3–1 in the final.[4]
