The Steel & Sons Cup (also referred to as the Steel Cup) is an intermediate football competition in Northern Ireland run by the North East Ulster Football Association (also known as the County Antrim & District Football Association). The competition culminates in the final which has traditionally been played on Christmas Day (except when Christmas Day falls on a Sunday). The 2006 final, however, broke with tradition when it was staged on the Saturday before Christmas as this was a closed date for all other football fixtures in Northern Ireland. The final returned to its original Christmas Day slot in 2007-08.
