Premier Sports Cup Group Stage Draw Information

We’ll begin our 2022/23 season in the Premier Sports Cup with the draw for the group stage of the competition taking place on Wednesday, May 25 at 1pm.

Here’s what you need to know ahead of the draw.

What has changed this year?

For the past six years, the group stage has been regionalised with teams split into North and South sections.

There is no regionalisation for this year’s competition.

Is there still seeding and how is that decided?

Seedings remain with five seeding pots, based on final league placings in season 2021/22. One club from each pot will be drawn into Groups A-H.

Killie are in Pot 1 and have been issued club number 8.
