The 2022/23 Sky Sports Cup Final, the competition previously known as the SWPL Cup Final, will be played at Tynecastle Park in Edinburgh on Sunday 11th December. The match will also be exclusively live on Sky Sports, the first SWPL game to be broadcast on the channel.

The venue, home of Heart of Midlothian, has hosted the two most recent Scottish Women’s Cup Finals, providing an outstanding backdrop for the clubs, players, and fans as well as producing some historic moments.

Fiona McIntyre, SWPL Managing Director, said: “We’re thrilled to have secured Tynecastle Park for the 2022/23 final. The clubs and players have all spoken very highly of their experiences here, commenting on the incredible atmosphere that is created at Tynecastle which is well-known amongst fans of Scottish football.

“I’m also delighted that this will be the first match broadcast on Sky Sports since the announcement of our record partnership. Alongside Sky Sports and the two finalists, we look forward to a historic moment for the girls’ and women’s game.”

The Semi-Final draw, conducted at Tynecastle by Fiona McIntyre and Scottish singer-songwriter, ili, is as follows:

The draw means a repeat of the 2019 Cup Final which saw Hibernian prevail 4-2 on penalties over Glasgow City. Spartans host Rangers, after defeating both Heart of Midlothian and Celtic on penalties earlier in the competition.

The Semi-Finals will take place on Sunday 6th November, hosted by the home clubs. Ticket information for the Final will follow these matches.
