Glentoran celebrate winning last season's Irish Cup.

The magic of the Irish Cup could lose its spell this season as the draw for the opening round takes place today.

The draw will be streamed live on the BBC Sport NI website at 5.30pm from Windsor Park but it remains unclear whether next month's ties will be played due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
