Premier Cup Finals

The Premier Cup began life as the Charity Cup, which was a pre-season tournament contested by the top sixteen teams in the previous season's final Premier Division table, and the pairings were worked out on a seeded basis favouring the teams that finished higher in the table. It was soon renamed the Premier Cup and eventually incliuded all 20 teams in the Premier League in the upcoming season.

From 177 the competition will continue as a pre-season tournament, but will only involve the top 12 from the previous season's final Premiership table. The teams in positions 5 to 12 will play off in the first round and the winners will play away from home to the top four in the quarter-finals. The final will be at Weembley as usual
