The Scottish League Cup


A Brief History Of The Scottish League Cup

Season 1946/47 saw the introduction of the League Cup competition and Rangers became the first winners of the Trophy defeating Aberdeen by four goals to nil at Hampden Park.

In many ways, the idea of a League Cup came about almost as an accidental by-product of the Second World War, but unlike the League Championship, which has been dominated by the top clubs, this tournament has witnessed a more "even spread" of winners.

The League Cup proved to be an instant hit with both players and fans and for the first 25 years or so proved to be an outstanding success.

However, in those days it was played on a sectional basis and with social habits changing the public lost faith in the competition and for several years, especially from the mid seventies until the very early eighties, the standing of the League Cup competition was at an all time low with both the media and the paying public.

The introduction of a short snappy knockout formula in season 1984/85 has proved to be extremely successful and popular with supporters.

Now sponsored by CIS Insurance, it is a tournament that has produced many exciting, high scoring and memorable cup ties over the years.
