Has there been any mention in the Scottish media about when this is going to start?

2 weeks before the lower leagues begin is the plan I think. So early October.

7th October.

Today is the day League 1 and 2 clubs have to accept or decline the invitation.

Here is a novel idea.Why Can't the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup be by invitation only?

I pride myself I never swear which precludes the way I would respond.

If it starts early in October it will almost take the place of pre-season friendlies for the lower league clubs. Premiership clubs will have a huge advantage having played two months' competitive league fixtures by then.

Correct Wee Eck, we have had some great away results in recent years at the premier league teams, which will be harder to achieve

What format is it taking? Straight to knockout or mini leagues then knockout?

Aren't they still waiting to hear from all clubs as to whether they want to take part or not? The number of clubs involved may determine the format but you would think the lower league clubs would want a guarantee of more than one or two games before their league campaigns start.

Perhaps starting in mid September would help. That way we could have leagues of 4 playing each other once. That would take place instead of friendlies.
