I do not believe defunct is an accurate description here:
- For the Coronation cup- either it was a one off event, or they may hold it again at the future date of a coronation- so can't be "defunct"
- Plans for UK team in 2008, and 2012 exist
In any case navigational templates are not the place for article text. Astrotrain 12:00, 9 April 2006 (UTC)
Nationwide Football competions
Added FAW Premier Cup. Its contested by teams in the Welsh system and English system. Out of the four competions listed only 1, the Texaco Cup contains, English, Scottish, Irish and Northern Irish teams, plus Ireland is not part of the UK anyway. As for the Anglo-Scottish cup, Empire Cup and Coronation Cup these where played out between just Scottish and English sides. Personally I see more relevence for a competion which is still in existance, over the anglo-scottish cup which was played out between sides not good enough to qualify for European competions i.e. Fulham and St. Mirren.
4 Associations' Tournament
I feel this is out of place here as not all teams involved are part of the United Kingdom nor will all the teams of the United Kingdom be involved. Currently, I believe its inclusion is misleading. Fionnsci (talk) 18:11, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
