Scottish Cup

The Scottish Football Association Challenge Cup, commonly known as the Scottish Cup, is an annual association football knock-out cup competition for men’s football clubs in Scotland. The competition was first held in 1873–74. Entry is open to all 98 clubs with full membership of the Scottish Football Association (SFA), along with up to eight other clubs who are associate members.

Although it is the second oldest competition in association football history, after the FA Cup, the Scottish Cup trophy is the oldest in association football and is also the oldest national trophy in the world. It was first presented to Queen’s Park, who won the final match of the inaugural tournament in March 1874. The current holders are St Johnstone who defeated Hibernian in a 1-0 victory on Saturday 22nd May 2021. They are the first team to win a cup double since Aberdeen in 1990.
