Scottish Cup Pop Up 2019/20

Recommended Posts

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

In Rounds 2, 3 & 4 you will have 16 selections. From the 5th round you can only select teams that you picked in the previous round. Incorrect selections will mean, therefore, less options to choose from in succeeding rounds.

Selection Points

One point for each correct selection in Round 2. This will increase by one point in each successive round. Therefore, correctly selecting the Cup winner is worth seven points.

Seeding Points

Teams are seeded according to their league position. There are 6 groups - Premiership; Championship; League One; League Two; Highland/Lowland League; East of Scotland/SJFA
Additional points will be awarded if your selected team knocks out a team from a higher group. One point per level. A further point will be awarded if it is an away win.
To make it simple I have identified these fixtures in the list below i.e. H2 means a home win would gain 2 seeding points.

Bonus Points

Bonus point questions will be sprinkled throughout the competition. One point each.

 


Round Two fixtures
        Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic v Buckie Thistle
        Edinburgh City v Banks O' Dee A3
        Auchinleck Talbot v Cove Rangers H2
        Penicuik Athletic v Stenhousemuir H2
        Albion Rovers v Fort William A2
        East Kilbride v Gretna 2008
        Cowdenbeath v Broxburn Athletic A3
        Clachnacuddin v Brora Rangers
        Rothes v Inverurie Loco Works

        Annan Athletic v Brechin City
        Lochee United v BSC Glasgow H1

Jagger, I think the typhoon has distracted you. You've missed out your 16 teams for Round 2

BB, I appreciate that a competition scoring suggestion from a forum member who cannot even count to 16 may seem incongruous, but here goes.

How about awarding bonus points (or even better an extra team?) to any contestant who successfully predicts a victory by a team in a lower tier than the team they defeat? To make it easy all non-SPFL teams can be deemed to be in the fifth tier. 

This might encourage contestants to go outside the box rather than stick to the safe big team options. Also later on in the competition, it might allow a way back into contention to those who have less teams to select from, thus spicing up the competition.

Just a thought but feel free to say hahahahahahahaha.
