Watch Premier Sports Cup draw LIVE as Hibs, Aberdeen, Dundee and others await group stage fate

The Premier Sports Cup group stage draw takes place at 1pm today [Wednesday, May 29] and you can watch it LIVE.

Fans will discover their first set of competitive fixtures for the new campaign as clubs are split into five pots based on their final league placings in the season just completed. There is no regionalisation for the first round and the 37 SPFL clubs involved will be joined by Highland League rivals Buckie and Brechin City, plus Lowland League title winners East Kilbride.

The eight group winners and three best runners-up will join European entrants Celtic, Rangers, Hearts, Kilmarnock and St Mirren in the last 16 of the competition. The tournament kicks off on the weekend of July 13/14, with further group stage matchdays on July 16/17, July 20/21, July 23/24 and July 27/28.

Each participating club is guaranteed to receive at least £30,000, while the winners will pocket £400,000 in prize money. You can follow the draw live by clicking Football Scotland's video player above.
