The quarter finals will take place on Saturday August 7, with the draw for the semi finals being made week commencing Monday August 9, with ties due to take place on August 28 and September 4.
Steven MacKenzie, Camanachd Association President said: ‘This year represents the 125th anniversary of our sport’s ‘blue riband’ trophy, the Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup and the competition is shaping up to be as exciting as ever. The support that Tulloch Homes have provided the Camanachd Association with over the past few years has been nothing short of incredible and our thanks go to them for that. I wish the best of luck to all teams in the next round as we edge ever closer to that historic day on September 18.’
Victor Smith said: ‘Everyone in the family is very proud of the fact the medal continues to be so important to this day. We know that on Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup Final day, everyone gives 100 per cent so to be that player who has shone brighter than everyone on such a big occasion is no mean feat. You need only look at the list of past winners to see just how many great players have worn the medal over the years.’
