Next years Scottish cup final date

Recommended Posts

the general

Next season's Scottish Cup final will take place on 9 May - two weeks before the end of the SPFL season - because Hampden is hosting Euro 2020 matches.

Its not like there is a perfectly good stadium that they could use to keep the final as the last game of the season.

The first of the Euro games isn't until 20th June, surely we could still have the final around it's traditional mid to late May and still have enough time to prepare the  stadium for a game of football.

The SFA really have no shame, so pathetic

 

Moving it to Murrayfield makes perfect sense, and depending who makes the final, a larger/sell out crowd of 68,000 is possible

 

The Glasgow obsession is totally ****ing our game

FA cup final in England not moved, even though Wembley is also being used for Euro 2020. SFA making up their own rules again

Fair point

 

Wembley just has semis and final though. Weeks later than first game at Hampden.

The final is the showpiece end to the season so surely it is not outwith the realms of possibility to bring forward the league fixtures  which would culminate the first week in May. They only have to find one date over a 9 - 10 month period or is that an over simplification.

And my son's. He's now seen Hearts get beat by St Mirren in a League Cup final and Selik in a Scottish Cup final. Third time lucky. ?

Absolute fuds - irrespective of Murrayfield / weegie centrism you could just have the cup final at Celtic Park. Instead they change the entire fixture calendar to revolve around the shite corrgated iron shed where they have their offices

 

Bulldoze Hampden ASAP - why are UEFA having games there, better facilities at Caithkin Park.

Agree, they played both cup finals in 2014 and Scotland games at CP because of Commonwealth games , if they can’t fathom moving out of Glasgow why can’t they just do that again (with grey skull as 2nd option if the mhanks get to the final again).

Hearts play better at Hampden than Murrayfield. Happy for us never to play at Murrayfield ever again to be honest. 

Let us be realistic though. Hampden needs every penny and no more games will leave Glasgow that makes money

Any work needed at Hampden will see it out of action, probably with lengthy delays as this is the SFA we're talking about. Games would need to be played at Murrayfield in the meantime, Old Firm hosting already ruled out from past discussions I think.

Murrayfield is crap.

 

after aek Athens and Celtic, I never want to see it advocated on this board again.

 

The SC final atmosphere and occasion at Hampden was MILES better than it could have been at Murrayfield, so the story’s over, as far as I’m concerned

Murrayfield is for Rugby. Ibrox or Parkhead are the only two alternatives, so feck that.

That's bollocks!* Murrayfield is easily better than Hampdump, and the atmosphere would have been at least as good, and quite possibly better, if the final had been there.

 

Edit: I say bollocks, of course you're entitled to your opinion, it's just wrong! ?

I don't mind the date being moved to get everything ready for the Euros but they need to bring the end of the league season forward, the Scottish Cup is the closer of the season not the 2nd or 3rd last game

In order to do that they would need to play 2 or 3 more midweek games (assuming there is free dates available).

I just can't understand why about 4 weeks isn't enough time to "prepare" the pitch/stadium after a normal cup final date.

Wonder then if the media talk of scrapping Scottish Cup replays is an alternative.
