The Tynecastle meeting will be the first since the teams have met since the Scottish Cup semi-final back in October, and the first league fixture since March 3 when Hearts ran out 3-1 winners at Easter Road in what turned out to be one of the final matches for both teams before the league ended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

If Hibs reach the Uefa Conference League group stage they will play their first fixture five days after the derby.

Jack Ross’ men are not in action in qualifying until July 22, while Hearts got their season underway with a 1-0 win over Peterhead in the Premier Sports Cup.
