There will be 600 supporters at the Scottish Cup final between Hibernian and St Johnstone on 22 May.

The Scottish Football Association applied for a crowd of 2,000 to be accommodated at Hampden after UEFA approved the plan to admit supporters to the Euro 2020 venue.

But only around a third of that figure - and 1.15 per cent of the national stadium's capacity - will be allowed in to cheer on their side for the showpiece occasion due to social distancing requirements.

An SFA statement read: "Following dispensation from UEFA to allow a restricted number of supporters to attend the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park on Saturday May 22, the Scottish FA approached the Scottish Government for 2000 fans to be accommodated using the approved UEFA EURO 2020 stadium seating template. 

"The Scottish Government has today confirmed that a two-metre physical distancing configuration must be used, not the 1.5m configuration that will be in operation for UEFA EURO 2020.

"At two-metre physical distancing, the number of spectators able to be hosted in the approved areas of the stadium reduces to 600 in total – 300 per club.

"We have notified both finalists, Hibernian and St Johnstone, and while the number is less than anticipated we look forward to a limited number of fans attending the cup final."
