East of Scotland Qualifying Cup & East of Scotland (City Cup) 16-17

The East of Scotland Qualifying Cup is contested by members of the East of Scotland FA who are not members of the Scottish Professional Football League.  In practice, this means most of the Lowland League and East of Scotland League’s member clubs.

Played in a knockout format, the finalists ‘qualify’ to play Berwick Rangers and Edinburgh City in the East of Scotland (aka City) Cup semi finals.

The Qualifying Cup competition is sponsored by Football Nation.
