The 2020/21 Scottish League Cup will get under way in October.

All 42 SPFL clubs will take part in the tournament and could be joined by Highland and Lowland league champions Brora Rangers and Kelty Hearts.

The group stage will begin on Tuesday, October 6, with the cup concluding at Hampden on Sunday, February 28.

Celtic won last season’s League Cup, beating Rangers 1-0 in the final.

Scottish football will resume on August 1 when the Premiership gets under way, with the lower divisions beginning in October.

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said: “The process of scheduling the SPFL’s premier cup competition has been made much more difficult this year due to the disruption caused by Covid-19, but we are delighted to be in a position to confirm five uninterrupted rounds of fixtures once again.”
