For season 2020/21 the Irish Cup (ID: 310026) Only 32 teams will compete for this season's 2020-21 Irish Cup because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Irish FA has announced.

 

The competition will get underway on 9 January 2021 and involve the 24 clubs from the Premiership and Championship.

The 2019-20 Intermediate Cup semi-finalists and the next four teams in the league pyramid will also compete.

Those final four places will be awarded to the teams ranked highest in last season's league pyramid based on points per game.

 

It also said it hoped to return to the traditional cup format in the 2021-22 season.

The traditional format sees intermediate sides compete in four rounds before being joined by the 24 senior clubs in the last 32 (fifth round).

I'm not sure if we are coding one off competition changes but will get some clarification on this.

I'm afraid this is unavoidable due to the start date of the league and the Covid-19 situation.  We can't offer such a unique start date, so inevitably if you choose a team in the early stages of European competition the matches will be simulated when starting the game.  This is the same for some other nations too.  As the next poster points out, you can get around this by including another nation and selecting their early start date, if you so wish.  Thanks.

While this would be a nice feature to have, the league is not licensed so we do not feature the real fixtures.

Hi @David Siddall, what are your thoughts on this?

Thanks

Hi, I previously hid this because it is a database issue not relevant to this thread.  David SIddall is part of the database team.  Please post this on the database & research forum.  Thanks

This is an extremely poor decision.  Massive fixture in the league everyone looks forward to  ''Boxing Day''  its Derby day you play your local rivals.  It saves people travelling so far on Christmas and is by far the biggest attendance of the season.  Please reconsider this one and only decision the rest of the league can be random but this fixture NEEDS to be Derby day across the whole league!

I've been to many boxing Day Derby and saw ones on TV some of the fixtures get the same turn out as a lower end of the English Championship while the rest of the season its like National League North/South

I don't think its an extremely poor decision. It would be nice to have, but definitely not something that is massively needed

you clearly don't follow the NIFL.  ask any fan what the biggest fixture is.

Just checking if a fix was ever found for Glenavon kit issue? shorts should be white not blue

Hi there, this isn't an issue for here, you'd need to ask in the Northern Ireland thread in the database & research forum.

This looks a little wild, I think. That may be true, but it's a lot of money, compared to the other teams -

Hello, this isn't something for us in this area of the forum.  If this is first year, then this will be for the database & research guys.  If this happens during regular gameplay in a future season then it would be for the gameplay guys in the All Other Gameplay forum.  Thanks.

Playing my 2nd season in the NI 3rd tier and I’ve yet to have a league game and it’s December. Is there any way to fix this?

 

@Dan Ormsby

Can you provide us a save game with this issue present and (ideally) a save game from before the issue occurred?  Cheers.

Can you check your reserve team fixtures and see if they are being entered into this competition?  Also could you provide us with a save game?  Thanks.  https://support.sega.co.uk/hc/en-gb/articles/360015264418-How-to-upload-files-for-support
