A total of 24 teams will take part in the 2015 EA SPORTS Cup. The first two rounds will be run on a regional basis with four pools of six teams.
Two teams from each pool will advance to the quarter-finals where there will be an open draw.
The 24 teams in the 2015 competition are the 20 SSE Airtricity League clubs; Ulster Senior League champions, Cockhill Celtic; Leinster Senior League champions, Crumlin United; Munster Senior League champions, University College Cork and Mayo Football League.
Under the competition rules clubs who have qualified for European competition (2015/16) and Setanta Sports Cup (2015), including the Saints, are exempt until the Second Round so Cork City, Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers all receive byes in the First Round.
The Saints have been drawn in Pool 3 and will face one of Crumlin United/Bray Wanderers, Drogheda United/Shelbourne or Dundalk in the Second Round.
