The 1876 Scottish Cup Final was the third final of the Scottish Cup and the final of the 1875–76 Scottish Cup, the most prestigious knockout football competition in Scotland. The match took place at Hamilton Crescent on 11 March 1876 and was contested by Queen's Park and 3rd Lanark Rifle Volunteers. The match was the first final to be held at a neutral venue and also the first to require a replay to decide a winner.[1]

The original match ended in a 1–1 draw with the first goal from Drinnan of 3rd Lanark RV in the second minute of the match. Queen's Park equalised in the 35th minute with a goal from Thomas Highet. In the replay a week later – played at Hampden Park – Queen's Park won 2–0 with a double from Highet to seal a hat-trick of cup final victories.

In only three years of the competition, Queen's Park had reached every final, even with a significant rise in the number of competitors. This was 3rd Lanark RV's début appearance in the final having previously reached the quarter-finals in 1873–74 and 1874–75.

The match also marked the first competitive meeting of Queen's Park and 3rd Lanark RV.

Route to the final

Both clubs entered the competition in the first round. Queen's Park won all their matches before the final at the first attempt, also without conceding a single goal. 3rd Lanark RV also managed similar success until the semi-final, conceding only a single goal. In the semi-final tie itself, however, the club required two replays to defeat Dumbarton after two consecutive 1–1 draws.
