The SPFL today announced the fixtures for the 2018/19 season. Hearts will begin their Ladbrokes Premiership campaign with a trip to Hamilton Academical on Saturday 4th August before entertaining league champions Celtic the following weekend.

The first Edinburgh derby of the season comes on a Wednesday when Hearts take on Hibernian at Tynecastle on Halloween. This will come as a disappointment for some younger fans who may not be able to attend one of the biggest games of the season on a school night, as well as those Hearts and Hibs supporters living outside the capital who won’t be able to make the trip.

Edinburgh City will begin their Ladbrokes League Two campaign with a home game against relegated Albion Rovers before travelling north to Elgin a week later.

Hearts fixtures for the season are below (source: although several fixtures are liable to change due to live television coverage.
