Friday night football coming to Gorgie

17 November 2022

Originally postponed due to the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in September, the Jambos were due to welcome the Buddies to Tynecastle Park on Wednesday, December 21st.

However, with both Hearts and St Mirren’s league games on the weekend on January 14th postponed due to Aberdeen and Celtic’s involvement in the Viaplay Cup semi-finals, the clubs agreed to move the match to a popular Friday evening slot with a 7.45pm kick off.

A Hearts spokesperson said: “In a congested fixture list, there was a rare opportunity to move the match to what we feel will be a more agreeable date for supporters of both clubs to attend.

“From a footballing perspective, it makes perfect sense to alleviate a busy festive period by switching to a free weekend.

“Tynecastle under the lights is always a special occasion and we hope fans will welcome the chance to kick off their weekend on a Friday night in Gorgie.”

Tickets that have been purchased for either of the original dates – September 11th and December 21st – will be vaild for this new date.
