Tennents' Sixes

Biggest Win: 6 - 1 vs. Falkirk (N) on Jan 24th, 1988

Total Players Used: 48

The Tennents' Sixes was an annual indoor football tournament contested each January by senior football clubs from Scotland (along with some English guests) between 1984 and 1993. The tournament was sponsored byTennent Caledonian Breweries and organised by the Scottish Football Association. When Tennent Caledonian Breweries withdrew their sponsorship after the 1993 event, the Sixes was discontinued. The format used was dependent on the number of teams participating: in most cases 10 teams were involved and would be drawn into 2 groups of 5 who would play each other once. From there, the first and second-placed teams from each group would contest the knockout stages, consisting of two semi-finals and a final. United never faired particularly well in the tournament and in the 10 years it took place, they never reached a final. Aberdeen, Rangers and Hearts were most successful, each winning the competition twice. Partick Thistle won the last event in 1993 and therefore still remain holders of the trophy.
