In March 2020 Cornwall FA canvassed all Saturday clubs to gather their views regarding a new County Cup structure. In particular clubs opinions were sought on a proposal that the Senior Cup should only be competed for by clubs at Steps 5 and 6 of the National League System (NLS) with a new Intermediate Cup being introduced for the teams of the St Piran, East Cornwall Premier and Cornwall Combination Leagues.
Of the clubs that responded 71% were in favour of the change and it was intended to introduce the change for the 2020/21 season in line with the NLS structural changes. However, due to the pandemic, the change was put on hold.
We can now confirm that the changes to the cup structure described above will come into effect for the 2021/22 season.
As with all County Cup competitions, the new structure will remain under continual review but no further changes are intended for at least 3 years.
