The Scottish Professional Football League has announced that Hibs supporters will have the whole of the Wheatfield and Gorgie Stands and most of the Main Stand.

St Johnstone fans will be accommodated behind the goal in the Roseburn Stand, the stadium’s traditional away end.

It has been agreed that Saints’ allocation may increase if there is a demand for tickets. If this is the case they will be housed in block N of the upper Main Stand. If this is not required by the St Johnstone support then this area will be allocated to Hibs fans.

Tickets for the match on 30 January next year are priced at £20 for adults and £5 for under-16s.

The prices are the same for the other semi-final between Celtic and Ross County which will take place at Hampden the following day.

County fans have been allocated the lower sections of the South Stand at the national stadium, with Celtic supporters taking the rest of the ground.

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said: “We are all looking forward to two fantastic semi-finals early next year and hope supporters of all four clubs enjoy lots of entertaining football and two memorable occasions.”

The competing clubs will announce ticket sale information via their own channels in due course.
