The 2019–20 Scottish Cup will be the 135th season of Scotland's most prestigious football knockout competition. The tournament is sponsored by bookmaker William Hill in what is the final season of a nine-year partnership, after contract negotiations saw the initial five-year contract extended for an additional four years in October 2015.[1] This will be the first season in which a match from every round of the tournament proper is broadcast live, with one match per rounds 1-3 being shown live on the BBC Scotland channel for the very first time.[2]
