It’s Official – The Scottish Cup is a world record breaker!

Guinness World Records have bestowed two separate awards on the Scottish Cup marking the trophy’s importance within the heritage of world football.

First won in 1874, the trophy is both the oldest national football trophy in the world and the oldest trophy in Association football. Special certificates acknowledging each category have been sent to the museum from Guinness World Records.

Accepting the certificates at Hampden Park were Campbell Ogilvie, President of the Scottish FA, and Robert Craig, Chair of the Scottish Football Association Museum Trust.

The Original Scottish Cup is on display permanently in the Scottish Football Museum.
