Falkirk Stadium will host a bumper a day of women’s football on 1 May 2022 as the Biffa Scottish Women’s Cup semi-finals take place.

The draw was conducted at Hampden Park on Tuesday afternoon pairing Eva Olid’s Hearts with Fran Alonso’s Celtic and producing an all Glasgow tie between Partick Thistle and Glasgow City.

Both matches will take place back-to-back in Falkirk and will be streamed on the Scottish Women’s Football (SWF) YouTube channel.
