Hearts Premier Sports Cup fixture dates revealed - two televised
Hearts will kick off the 2021/22 season with a trip to Peterhead.
The club’s four Premier Sports Cup Group A fixtures have been confirmed with two games being televised.
Hearts are in Group A with regular foes Inverness CT as well as Cove Rangers and Peterhead who the club have faced recently in the competition and Stirling Albion.
Robbie Neilson's men travel north to Balmoor Stadium to face the Blue Toon on Saturday, July 10.
The last time Hearts visited Peterhead in 2017, Ian Cathro’s side lost 2-1 with Rory McAllister netting a 90th minute penalty.
It was a crucial result as the team failed to progress from the group with Cathro getting sacked after failing to beat Dunfermline Athletic.
Cove Rangers come to Tynecastle for the first time in a competitive encounter on Tuesday, July 13 with the game being shown on Premier Sports. It will be just the second time the teams have met. The previous occasion saw Hearts win 2-1 at Balmoral Stadium in 2018.
A week later, Hearts travel to Stirling to face the Binos. Their first visit to Forthbank since 2007.
They finish the group with a home tie against Inverness CT on Sunday, July 25. The match has also been picked for television coverage.
