Big Hearts to feature on Saturday's match jersey

25th March 2021

The Big Hearts logo will take pride of place on the front of the jersey as Hearts take to the pitch against Queen of the South this Saturday.

To mark Big Hearts Day 2021, the charity badge will feature alongside the club crest on the front of the jersey.

Big Hearts Day is the annual matchday recognising the charity’s achievements across the communities surrounding Tynecastle Park and further afield.

In Gorgie, 35% of children are living in poverty. It is the highest rate across the whole city of Edinburgh.

From the charity’s facilities within the Wheatfield Stand, Big Hearts uses the power of the game to create better outcomes for local school pupils and their families and works on other areas of needs, including social isolation of over 65s and men’s mental health.

The Big Hearts Supporters Movement is a leading light within Scottish football, gathering thousands of Hearts’ fans volunteering to help others in need.

In 2020 and amidst the Covid-19 crisis, Big Hearts supported over 8,000 vulnerable people - more than ever before. 

Ahead of kick-off on Saturday, we encourage Hearts fans to tune in on Hearts TV from 2:15pm to hear directly from a family supported by Big Hearts and get to know a bit more about their work behind the scenes!

Supporters will also get the opportunity to lay hands on the special matchday shirts, with all proceeds going to the charity.

Craig Wilson, General Manager at Big Hearts comments:

“Our successful partnership with the Club is based on strong family values and a proud record of community engagement. We are excited to see the first team players show their support on the pitch for the very first time this Saturday, on what will be our 5th annual Big Hearts Day at Tynecastle Park.

“At Big Hearts we believe in the power of football to change lives. Every week, hundreds of Hearts’ fans volunteer with our charity to support families most in need. We see this kind gesture from Heart of Midlothian FC as a tribute to their continued effort, particularly during the incredibly challenging past 12 months. A big thank you to all who have helped make this happen.”
