Hibs Cup semi-final date

Have your say

Hibs’ Scottish Cup semi-final against Falkirk will kick-off at 12.15pm on Saturday, 18 April, it has been confirmed.

The Hampden showdown between the two Championship promotion hopefuls will be televised live on BBC1 Scotland.

Hibs are yet to announce ticket information for the tie, which is a repeat of their Saturday-lunchtime meeting at the same stage of the competition two years ago. Hibs won that game 4-3 after coming back from 3-0 down.

The other semi-final, between Celtic and Inverness Caledonian Thistle, will take place the following day, also at 12.15pm, and will be shown live on Sky Sports.

As a result of Hibs’ involvement in the semi-finals, their league match for that weekend, away to Livingston, has been rescheduled for Wednesday, 22 April, with a 7.45pm kick-off.
