It’s game day. After the excitement and tension has been cranked up to record levels, Hearts and Hibs will meet at Hampden this afternoon to contest the first Scottish Cup final between the sides since 1896.
STV will be covering the weekend’s events every step of the way. We’ll tracking the fans on their way to Hampden, bringing you the team news as soon as it’s announced.
When the big game is underway we’ll have live updates from kick-off right through to the final whistle (and penalties if needed and our nerves are up to it). And when it’s all over we’ll have reaction from the victors and regrets from the defeated side.
It wouldn’t be a cup final without a parade of course and on Sunday, one half of Edinburgh will be partying. Be sure to visit STV Sport for all the news from the parade and seeing the fans salute their heroes as the players show off the famous trophy.
