The 2019 Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup featuring Newtonmore and Oban Camanachd has been rescheduled to take place at An Aird, Fort William, this Saturday 21st September, with a 3pm throw up, following consultation with both clubs and the Board of Directors.
A weather inspection will be carried out today, Monday, and again on Wednesday 18th September to determine if there are any weather risks for the fixture. If the weather forecast has not improved the match will take place at a neutral venue in Inverness.
Saturday's conditions were unprecedented and worsened considerably as the game went on. In celebration of all those who braved the conditions, the Camanachd Association advised this Saturday's Tulloch Homes Camanachd Cup final will be free entry for all, with donations at the gate to help cover costs for the rearranged fixture.
The Camanachd Association is a not for profit organisation led by a Board of Directors who have volunteered at clubs across the country, played shinty at the highest levels throughout their lives and continue to help the game by leading and giving up their time to support our sport.
In appreciation for those that travelled on Saturday, 14th September and understanding that those same people will likely wish to support their teams again in the final on the 21st September the board agreed to make entry by donation. The board expressed gratitude and appreciation to all the volunteers and staff who worked so hard to prepare An Aird for Saturday.
The Under 14 MacMaster Cup Final has also been provisionally scheduled to take place on Saturday 21st September with a 12pm throw up time.
