The Ramsden Cup aka Scottish League Challenge Cup has been going since 1990 and has been known as other names such as B&Q Cup, Bell's Cup and Alba Cup. Falkirk are the most successful club having lifted the trophy four times. The final is usually played at a smaller venue such as McDermiad Park or Fir Park rather than Hampden, although if Rangers made it to the final it may go to Hampden.
