The IFA is thrilled to announce the draw for the highly anticipated IFA British Cup 2023/24. With an incredible response from teams, the tournament promises to be a thrilling showcase of football supporter talent from across England and Scotland.
The draws have resulted in four competitive groups, with English teams split into North and South divisions and Scottish teams drawn at random. Teams will battle it out in a series of group stage matches, playing each other once, aiming to secure their spot in either The IFA Challenge Cup or the Glyn Price Vase.
Here are the groups for the IFA British Cup:
As the group stage progresses, the top two teams from each group will secure their place in The IFA Challenge Cup, where the competition will intensify even further.
The remaining teams will proceed to the Glyn Price Vase, a new, and highly anticipated tournament in its own right.
Due to the presence of 11 English teams, the two lowest-ranked English teams from Groups A and B will compete in a thrilling Vase Survival match.
