Scotland will play their remaining three home 2021 UEFA Women’s Championship qualifiers in Edinburgh, with Hibernian hosting two ties and Hearts the other,

Shelley Kerr’s side will take on Portugal on Tuesday 14 April at Easter Road, before playing against Albania on Friday 5 June at Tynecastle and then Finland on Tuesday 22 September at Easter Road.

Easter Road played host to Scotland’s first qualifying match of the campaign where the team played in front of a record crowd for a qualifier of 6,206.

Scotland Women’s National Team Head Coach Shelley Kerr told scottishfa.co.uk: “We are delighted to be returning to Easter Road in April. It was a memorable night the last time we played there and we are looking forward to playing in front of another large crowd.

“Playing at Tynecastle in June will also be special as it’s a stadium we’ve not played at for some time and recently hosted a well attended SSE Scottish Women’s Cup Final.

“The campaign has started well but there is a long way to go and we’ll need the Scottish public behind us if we are to achieve our goal of reaching our third consecutive tournament in a row.”

It has also been confirmed that Scotland’s away match against Cyprus on Thursday 9 April will take place at the AEK Arena in Larnaca.
