The Scottish Youth Cup (also known as the SFA Youth Cup) is an annual Scottish football competition run by the Scottish Football Association for under-18 teams,[1] previously under-19 teams.[2] The competition started in 1983–84 and is open to all senior clubs.[1][3] The competition's first winners, Celtic, have won the competition 15 times, more than any other club.[4] Rangers are the current holders, having defeated Celtic in the final of the 2018–19 competition.[5]

The Scottish Youth Cup final has been contested between Celtic and Rangers nine times; it should not be confused with the Glasgow Cup, formerly a senior competition for clubs in the city of Glasgow but now also played by their youth sections. Normally its final is played within a few weeks of the Youth Cup, and almost always features those same two clubs.
