Why visit Scotland?
What is the Scottish cup
The Scottish Cup is a knockout cup competition run by and named after the Scottish Football Association.
The Scottish Cup trophy is the oldest national trophy in the world. It was first held in 1873–74, with the first winners being Queen's Park. The current holders of the Scottish Cup are Celtic, who defeated Hibernian 3-0 in the 2013 Scottish Cup Final on 26 May 2013.
At the time of the cup's first season Queen's Park were by far the dominant force in Scottish football, and no other team had even managed to score a goal against them until 1875, eight years after their formation. This early dominance meant they were invited into the first FA Cup season and in season 1883–84 they came close to a cup double, winning the Scottish Cup but losing the FA Cup Final to Blackburn Rovers. They again met Blackburn Rovers in the following season's Final but were defeated once again. Other Scottish teams competed in the FA Cup such as Partick Thistle and 3rd Lanark RV and continued to compete until 1887, when the Scottish Football Association banned its members from taking any further part in the "English Cup"
