What is the Scottish Cup Final?
The Scottish Cup final is the last match in the 3rd oldest existing football competition in the world. It is a knockout cup competition in Scottish Football. The competition commenced in the 1873–74 season just two years after the first FA Cup. The winners are awarded the world’s oldest trophy, minted in 1885.

Clubs that win the Scottish Cup can complete a domestic “double” by becoming Scottish league champions in the same season. Only three clubs have won both competitions in the same season. Rangers have completed the double on 18 occasions, followed by Celtic on 16. Aberdeen achieved the feat once in 1984.
Celtic are currently the Scottish Premiership leaders need one more league wins to secure an eighth straight top-flight title.
