Welsh Cup / Cambria Cup 2021

The invitations for the Welsh Cup 2021 and the Cambria Cup 2021 have now been issued. These, Wales' premiere knockout events for respectively Men and Mixed teams, will be played online in the initial rounds but will still be regionalised into a North and South region in the hope that later matches will be played live.

Each stanza won gives a portion of a Green Point so, unlike most knockout competitions, you are likely to get some Green Points even when you lose a match.

So why not enter this year?  Each competition will lead to a final with about six teams some time in 2021.
