The game, kicking off at 3pm, has centre stage and has also had an impact on the domestic fixtures in the cinch Premiership.
Not only are the two sides out of league action this weekend, their prescribed opponents, St Mirren and Aberdeen will also be idle, meaning only four matches go ahead on Saturday – and league leaders Rangers could extend their advantage over finalists Celtic, with a home match against Dundee United – one of only two teams to defeat them in Scotland this season.
Though the top flight is scaled down, there is however a full card of league clashes in the second tier cinch Championship, spread from Inverness in the Highlands to Dumfries in the south of the country.
Match officials have, of course, been appointed to each fixture and here is a run-down of who is in charge of each game in the two two divisions – plus two of the stand-out clashes in League One.
The identity of Sunday’s man in the middle has already been revealed with John Beaton handed the honour of officiating the first cup final of the season, assisted by Graeme Stewart and Calum Spence at the National Stadium, and fourth official Greg Aitken.
