This year’s SSE Scottish Women’s Cup Final will be held at the home of Heart of Midlothian FC. Tynecastle Park, on Sunday 24 November.

Scottish Women’s Football’s 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.”

SSE’s Head of Sponsorship and Reward, Colin Banks, said: “The final of the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup is deserving of a venue that matches the ambition of the women’s game and Tynecastle epitomises that.

“Hearts too are actively developing the women’s game, and the appointment of Manchester City’s Kevin Murphy as Girls Academy & Women’s Manager underlines their commitment to nurturing and attracting the best talent.”

Kevin Murphy said: “It’s a great honour for everyone at Heart of Midlothian Football Club 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.”

Last year the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup had a record attendance of 1,943 at Firhill Stadium. The record attendance has been broken every year since SSE started its sponsorship in 2016 and McIntyre added: “We’re confident that we can exceed that again this year with the help of SSE. The venue is truly impressive and has world-class facilities with great transport links so we believe it is fitting stage and venue for our national cup final.”

Tickets will be available on the gate, priced at £7 for adults, £3 for concessions, and U12’s go free. Alternatively, you can purchase your tickets online via the Heart of Midlothian website.
