Round robin matches now complete

The final round robin matches of this season's City of Glasgow Cup have now been completed.
Following Rangers' resounding win over rivals Celtic in the second Old Firm match, Celtic finished with another victory over Queen's Park, while Rangers beat Partick Thistle in their last match.
The result is another Old Firm Final.


Our Sponsor

Our sincere thanks go to City Refrigeration Holdings, led by Lord William Haughey, for their continued support of the City of Glasgow Cup and the activities of the Glasgow FA. These extend to the popular Glasgow Football Festival for the pupils of Glasgow primary schools and the Football Festival for the Under-11 teams from the Glasgow FA member clubs.


2016-17 competition format

Having recently undergone a re-structure of their Youth Development, Clyde are not participating in the 2016/17 tournament. This leaves the remaining four Glasgow clubs to compete in a round robin set of fixtures, with the top two going forward to contest the Final.
