HKCA Saturday Cup (Twenty20 Format) - News & Announcements

The Saturday Cup will be held once again this year in the Twenty20 format. It will be a 16 side competition with the teams being seeded from the positions they finished in the regular league season (1vs 9, 2 vs 10 etc).

This means the teams finishing 15th through to 18th will need to play in a qualifier round to see who goes through to the Cup competition.

Due to the restriction with ground availability, where grounds are marked as TBA they will be announced once results from the previous weekend are confirmed.
