Should Raith qualify from the group stage once again they will play their second round match on the midweek of August 30/31, with the quarter-finals midweek of October 18-20.

Due to changes to the calendar caused by the winter World Cup in Qatar, the semi-finals will take place in January with the final scheduled for Sunday, February 26.

This will be the first year since the competition was reshaped in 2016 that there will be no regionalisation in the group stage after a recommendation from the SPFL Competitions Working Group.
