Association Cup & Shield

The Association Cup is the knockout competition for top level men and women teams, scheduled on specific weekends to avoid clashes with league matches.  Teams who lose in the first or second round of the Cup move across to the Shield competition, which is also played on a knockout format.

 

Details of the draws and results for each round are found below.

 

Any club affiliated with Volleyball Ireland can register teams.
