The Camanachd Association Challenge Cup or the Camanachd Cup or Scottish Cup as it is known is the premier prize in the sport of shinty.

Contents

The tournament

At present the tournament is contested by the eligible teams in North and South Division 1, together with the teams in the Marine Harvest Premier League, who join the competition at the second round stage. There was formerly a Qualifying Cup.

Traditionally, the trophy was competed for on a North/South basis with the best team from the North facing the best team from the South only in the final. In 1983 the open draw was intoduced which resulted in the first (and so far) only All-South final between Kyles and Strachur. 1984 saw the first ever All-North final and first ever final clash between heated rivals Kingussie and Newtonmore.

Four teams have won the trophy three times in a row, Newtonmore, Kingussie, Kyles Athletic and Fort William.

In 2006, the Cup had its first ever televised draw on BBC Scotland sports programme Spòrs, with the final also being broadcast live.

The trophy

The trophy itself was made after public donation in 1896 and, as befits such a Blue Riband event, it is a grand cup designed and constructed by Hamilton and Inches, Edinburgh. The player on the lid was modelled from Jock Dallas who played for Kingussie and whose great grandson, Ally Dallas, still plays for Kingussie.

In 2006, the ancient trophy made its way to New York City for the Tartan Day celebrations, the first time it had ever left Scotland.

Due to the rumbunctious nature of the celebrations of victorious teams leaving the trophy in a fragile state,(drinking whisky from the bowl is a traditional ritual and on one occasion the trophy was abandoned and then found in Somerled Square, Portree, after Skye Camanachd's 1990 victory, as everybody had assumed somebody else was looking after it), the board of directors at the Camanachd Association took the decision to have the trophy renovated and a replica of the trophy made for presentation after finals. The replica was to be ready for the centenary final in 2007 in Inverness but the cost of a replica were considered prohibitive and therefore the original trophy is still used.

The centenary final was contested between 2005 winners Fort William and 2004 winners Inveraray on 22 September 2007 at Bught Park. Fort William won the game 3-1.

The 2009 final was held in Oban between Kyles Athletic and holders Fort William on the 19th of September. An exciting final saw Fort William take a 3-0 lead before being pegged back to 3-3 by a Kyles comeback with 10 minutes to go. Fort William achieved a three in a row streak however thanks to a late goal by James Clark and won the game 4-3.

Media coverage

The final of the Camanachd Cup gets shown live on BBC Two Scotland and BBC Alba.
