Scottish Cup to Resume in March

Wed, 3rd Mar 2021 3:40pm

Following yesterday's announcement about the gradual lifting of the football suspension, the Scottish FA has today confirmed new dates for the 2020-21 Scottish Cup.

The competition will resume on Tuesday 23rd March in order to complete the outstanding ties from the Second Round before the Third Round is played on the weekend of 3rd April.

The Bully Wee will, therefore, travel to face Keith in a Second Round tie on Tuesday 23rd March.

The full list of revised dates is as follows:-

  • Second Round: Tuesday, 23 March
  • Third Round: Saturday, 3 April
  • Fourth Round: Saturday, 17 April
  • Fifth Round: Saturday, 24 April
  • Semi-Finals: Saturday, 8 & Sunday, 9 May
  • Final: Saturday, 22 May

The competition will see the introduction of concussion substitutes on a trial basis, following approval by the Scottish FA Board and confirmation by the International Football Association Board [IFAB].

In the event of an actual or suspected concussion, clubs will be allowed to use a maximum of two concussions replacements, regardless of the number of substitutions already made. The opposition will be permitted to make another change at the time a concussion substitution is made.
