FormatEdit

The competition consists of a preliminary round and then six rounds of which the last one is the final. The twelve teams from the Scottish Women's Premier League enter at the second round. Thus all other teams are drawn either in the preliminary round or the first round so that 40 teams play in the first round.[1] The 20 winners plus the 12 Premier League teams then play the second round, the round of 32. All rounds are played over a single leg.
