Use this map to determine the region in which your school is located. Then go the appropriate regional webpage under the drop-down “Tournament Venues” menu, whether to get more information about your regional competition or to skip straight to registering your team for it.
Once you’ve completed a team registration form you’ll receive further instructions in a confirmation email.
The registration cost is £70. That guarantees your team at least two matches in its regional tournament. Teams that advance to the finals aren’t charged a further registration fee. In addition, The Cup will provide financial assistance, in the form of travel bursaries, to teams that qualify for the finals but would otherwise struggle to afford the journey to St. Andrews.
It is important to us that the Cup be an opportunity for dialogue between students from a diverse array of backgrounds. To that end, schools that serve less wealthy communities are given a £50 discount on the fee. A school serves a “less wealthy community”, for the purposes of this discount, if it falls between the 50th and 99th percentile of schools in the percentage of its students that
- qualify for a free school meal (Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales)
- quality for the pupil premium (England)
