WIN A DAY IN THE OFFICIAL PRESS BOX AT HAMPDEN WITH HOSPITALITY; Plus: a trip to Sky studios to meet the Sky Sports team Every entrant receives a Cupkidz football and camera.

ARE you the next budding bard of the Homecoming Scottish Cup?

Can you pen some verse to describe your love of the beautiful game?

This year celebrates Homecoming Scotland - a year-long celebration of Scotland's culture, heritage and its people - and the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns, Scotland's national bard.

Skilful play by footballers is often described as 'poetry in motion' and we want you to take in the skill and passion of the Homecoming Scottish Cup by attending a match and reporting on it - in the form of a poem!

It doesn't need to rhyme or be lengthy, it just needs to capture the game.

Every entrant wins a CupKidz football and CupKidz fun camera and the official Homecoming Scottish Cup match reporter wins a day out of a lifetime with their family. They will sit in the official press box at Hampden at either the semi-final or final with hospitality provided.

The Cup Final winner will also get an exclusive tour of Sky Studios to meet the Sky Sports team, who may even read out your winning poem live on Sky Sports!

Simply go along to any of the Homecoming Scottish Cup Matches in the fifth round on the weekend of the February 7-8 2009 and complete a match report in the form of a poem.

Homecoming Scottish Cup 5th round ties: Airdrie Utd v Dunfermline; Hearts v Falkirk; Inverurie or Motherwell v St Mirren; Aberdeen v East Fife; Celtic v Queen's Park; Hamilton v Dundee Utd; Inverness v Kilmarnock; Forfar v Rangers.
