One of the best things about Scottish football is the rivalry between the clubs. The Old Firm derby between Celtic FC and Glasgow Rangers in particular is massive, and Edinburgh derby between Hibernian and Hearts is also big. The atmosphere at these games is as intense as you'll experience anywhere in the world.
If you're lucky enough to see one of these games live, you can feel the passion and the atmosphere grabbing you in the stomach. At the end of the game you'll be exhausted and, along with 60,000 others you'll either be on an extreme high or an extreme downer.
It's traditional in Scotland to head out for a drink after the game to discuss the result, the performance and the controversial moments. The Scottish people are great fun, so why not make a day of it?
The Scottish Premier League season runs from August until May, and it's possible to get tickets for most games. For more information visit the official Scottish Premier League website.
The Cup is a knockout competition, with pairs drawn completely at random. FA Cup matches usually take place on the home ground on one of the teams playing, and this is usually decided when the teams are drawn. In the history of the FA Cup, only 8 teams who were playing outside the top level of English football have gone on to win the competition.
Every year there are games where the whole squad of one team is worth less than one player on the opposition team. The beauty of the FA Cup is that in each round there is always an underdog to support in at least one of the games. As well as the English FA Cup, there is also a Scottish FA Cup for teams in Scotland, and an FA Women's Cup.
At the end of the competition, the winning team is presented with a trophy - the FA Cup. Manchester United hold the record for the most FA Cup wins (11), followed by Arsenal (10) and Tottenham Hotspur (8). The FA Cup runs from September to May, with the Premier League clubs joining in early January. The FA Cup final is played at England's new national stadium - Wembley.
