The first and second round draw have been regionalised.

Burton Morrison, Camanachd Association president, said: “It gives the association great pleasure to have conducted the first and second round draw of the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup this morning.

"The Camanachd Cup is shinty’s Blue Riband event and the greatest honour in our sport.

"The last three finals since the pandemic have all been extremely competitive which demonstrates the desire of all teams to get their hands on this prestigious trophy.

"The final will be returning to Fort William for the first time since 2019 and we look forward to working with the club and the local community to make sure it is a success.

"I wish all teams in today’s draw the very best of luck in their endeavours to lift the trophy on September 21st."
