Knock-Out Cup

The competition is to have a new format this season.

Instead of being played during the week at individual clubrooms throughout the season, it will now be played at the weekend on only two separate dates at a central venue. First round losers will have the chance to play in a subsidiary competition.

Originally it had been planned to hold the first two rounds of this competition before Christmas and the final two rounds in the New Year. However the UCU Committee have been unable to find a suitable date and venue pre-Christmas, and so the first two rounds will now be held, subject to confirmation, on Sunday 20th February 2000 at the QUB Staff Common Room. The final two rounds will probably be held shortly after Easter.
