Join your heroes of 1998 at the Heart of Midlothian Football Club's ’98 Cup Winners Celebration, on Sunday May 20th 2018.

1998 was an unforgettable year for supporters of Heart of Midlothian. For the first time in two generations, a team of heroes travelled to Glasgow and returned victorious, bringing the Scottish Cup back to Tynecastle.

To mark the 20th anniversary of this amazing day, the team is returning to Edinburgh to be reunited at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre for an extra special celebration dinner. Supporters can join their heroes at what will be the event of the season. A fantastic evening of entertainment is planned as the squad reminisces about what it meant to them, and players such as Stéphane Adam and Thomas Flogel will share their special memories of the campaign.

This glittering event will be hosted by the voice of Tynecastle, Scott Wilson and our guest speaker will be Willie Young, who refereed the final at Celtic Park.

2018 also marks the 60th anniversary of the amazing achievements of the 1957-58 team who won the league in emphatic style, scoring an incredible 132 goals; a record that stands to this day. The evening will pay homage to their achievement.

The package for each guest comprises:

  • Pre-dinner drinks reception with club officials
  • 3 course dinner with tea & coffee
  • Drinks package (half bottle of wine per person)
  • Top entertainment and awards ceremony hosted by Scott Wilson and after dinner speaker, Willie Young
  • Interviews with the team as they gather for the first time since lifting the trophy

There will be an auction and raffle including “money-can’t-buy” prizes and supporters will have the opportunity to bid for a special auction item to raise funds for a cancer charity in memory of Stefano Salvatori.

The Club will shortly be announcing details of some very special sponsorship packages for this event. 

The '98 Cup Winners Celebration Dinner will take place on Sunday May 20th at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. 

Tickets are priced at £98 and may be booked now at Hearts eTickets or by calling 0131 200 7244 or 0131 200 7282.
