Scottish Women’s Football Executive Officer Fiona McIntyre, said: “We’re delighted to be hosting the final here at Tynecastle.

"We’ve been working closely with Heart of Midlothian and they’ve been very supportive.

"They have invested in their girls’ and women’s section in recent times and their values align closely with our own in terms of their ambition to see the girls’ and women’s game flourish in Scotland, so it’s a brilliant fit all round.”

Heart of Midlothian’s Girls Academy and Women’s Manager Kevin Murphy added: “It’s a great honour for everyone at Hearts to be hosting this year’s SSE Scottish Cup Final.

"With our Girls and Women’s teams set to become fully integrated into the club in November, hosting a game of this magnitude generates even more excitement, not just at Hearts, but across the entire women’s game.

"We hope that a record number of fans will come along and enjoy the matchday experience at Tynecastle Park - one of the most iconic venues in Scottish football.”

Tickets for the final will be available on the gate, priced at £7 for adults, £3 for concessions, and U12s go free.
