Scottish Cup Pop Up 2020/21

113 TEAMS  /  112 MATCHES  /  9 ROUNDS  /  267 DAYS

The  world's most popular sports prediction competition is back. For the first time ever I've got my act together in time to capture every single match of this season's Scottish Cup.

Can Auld Jag repeat his success of  last season? Will jaggy produce a repeat of his last gasp Euro's victory? Or are you a champion in waiting? 
 

Select the teams that will make it through to the next round.

In the early rounds you can freely select any team. From Round 5 you can only select teams that you picked in the previous round.

Selection Points

One point for each correct selection in the Preliminary Round. This will increase by one point in each successive round. Therefore, a correct selection in the Final is worth nine points.

Seeding Points

Teams are seeded according to the league that they play in. There are 6 groups - Premiership; Championship; League One; League Two; Highland/Lowland leagues; East of Scotland/South of Scotland/West of Scotland/North Caledonian & SJFA leagues.
Additional points will be awarded if your selected team knocks out a team from a higher group. This will come into effect in Round 1.

Yes, a lot of guesswork in this round I imagine. Any points will be a bonus :)

With knowing hardly anything about any of these teams, it is difficult to work out who is the underdog. This may enhance the possibility of my scoring some points!

AHAHHAAAAAH

Thanks for organising this and for being so quick off the mark.

When I was a boy, there was nothing more boring than the United, City, Athletic and the like. The exotic for me, so  Crewe, Aston, Crystal , St Mirren, etc, and of course,  Thistle! So I've gone for the most exotically named clubs, and guesses for the others

H  H  H  H  H  H  A  A A A  A

Easthouses Lily Miners Welfare for the Cup!!

Yes, that would  be my approach too. Easthouses Lily Miners Welfare v Dundonald Bluebell in the final.

If that is the case, I may well have won your tournament, though hopefully Thistle can overcome these more delicate flowers.

I notice that these teams played each other in the Scottish Cup Preliminary Round 2 last season. Bluebell 4 - 2 Lily.
