Glasgow Cup

The Glasgow FA were formed in March 1883 after the Edinburgh FA challenged the city to a challenge match. Before this, the Scottish FA organized Glasgow’s representative fixtures and they saw this as a challenge to their authority, as the Edinburgh FA felt the eastern-based clubs were under-represented by the national body. After a number of years, the Glasgow FA, like most of the other county FAs organized a challenge cup competition. The first few years saw around two dozen clubs enter, and the competition was, given the calbre of clubs involved, seen as second only to the Scottish Cup. Even after the formation of the Scottish League in 1890, the Glasgow Cup was given priority over league fixtures, much to the exasperation of other clubs around the country. By the turn of the century the number of entrants had dwindled, but with Glasgow having six League, and mainly First Division, clubs, the competition held much prestige right up until the 1960s. By then, the introduction of European competitions had diminished its standing. The latter years of the tournament saw a number of competitions go either unfinished or unplayed. It was finally abandoned as a Senior competition in 1989 after which it was run as a youth tournament.
