Next weekend sees the long-awaited return of the William Hill Scottish Cup, with Hearts, Hibs, Celtic and Aberdeen finally set to play their semi-final fixtures which were postponed earlier this year.
Supporters can now get their hands on a keepsake of this unprecedented time in the competition’s history by purchasing the official match-day programmes.
The 36-page, A5 collector’s editions for the Heart of Midlothian v Hibernian and Aberdeen v Celtic fixtures are now on sale for £3.00, plus 99p post and packaging, from the Scottish Football Association’s official print partners Ignition Sports Media.
Saturday’s semi-final tie serves up an Edinburgh derby, with 2019 finalists Hearts, attempting to go one better than last year, facing rivals and three-time winners Hibernian, who last lifted the silverware in 2016.
On Sunday, 1 November, reigning holders Celtic are hunting down a record-breaking 58th cup final appearance, but face stiff competition from Aberdeen in their final-four encounter as the Dons aim to end their own 30-year wait to lift the famous trophy.
Order for both editions of the limited memorabilia will be despatched first-class on Thursday, 29 October. Though the programmes are produced to a schedule that should allow them to arrive before kick-off, pre-fixture delivery cannot be guaranteed due to reliance on Royal Mail meeting their normal performance standards.
