The Scottish Women's Football League First Division Cup is a cup competition in Scottish women's football, a competition only open to teams in the First Division, the second highest division in Scottish women's football. There are four rounds, including the final.

Background[edit]

The trophy was originally called the Scottish Women's League Cup. It was one of the three major honours in women's football in Scotland along with the Scottish League Championship and the Scottish Women's Cup. It was open to all teams that were members of the football league system in Scotland. This was until the creation of the Scottish Women's Premier League and with the Scottish Women's Premier League Cup in the summer of 2002.

The Premier League Cup was a competition exclusively for only teams that were a part of the Premier League. This meant that Scotland's top division already had its own League Cup competition, so the Scottish Women's League Cup was renamed the Scottish Women's Football League Cup. The cup was exclusively for First and Second Division teams (similar to men's Scottish Challenge Cup).

In 2012, the SWF launched separate cup competitions for First and Second Division teams.[1] So the trophy is now an exclusively all First Division competition.

Since 2009, women's football in Scotland has adopted a summer season which now runs from March to November each year, which is now why the competition is played in a single calendar year.[2]
