Hibs and Hearts set to benefit from return of winter break next season
The winter break is set to be reintroduced to the Scottish Premiership next season.
The mid-season pause was cancelled this campaign due to concerns over the fixture schedule during the coronavirus pandemic.
Following discussions the Premiership clubs have approved its return in January 2022, according to the Daily Mail.
A two-week break is likely to take place after the New Year, as it has since since being introduced in 2018.
Some clubs take the opportunity to jet off to training camps in warmer climes, with both Hearts and Hibs having done so previously.
This season, despite there not being a mid-season break, Celtic, controversially went to Dubai, a trip they have taken previously during the winter hiatus.
The SPFL’s former secretary Iain Blair explained why the extra fixture dates were required.
He said: “It is already incredibly tight, and that is before we consider how many games we will inevitably lose to bad winter weather, Scottish Cup replays and further potential postponements caused by Covid-19.”
