The King Cup is a long established competition contested by East of Scotland FA member clubs who are also members of the East of Scotland League. Up until recently, Lowland League clubs also took part but this ceased for the 2015-16 competition.
This season, entry is being restricted to clubs playing the East of Scotland League’s twin First Division ‘conferences’ meaning that holders Tranent Juniors will not be defending their title.
The format is straight knockout.
