There will be little to separate them at Firhill too, though City have history on their side with six trophy wins to Celtic’s one.

They last met at Celtic’s home ground in Airdrie – the Penny Cars Stadium – in September. A close game finished 2-2 with goals from Clare Shine and Lauren Davidson putting City ahead at the interval but a rallying second half from Celtic saw Olivia Chance score twice for a share of the spoils.

Previous wins

The match involves the beaten finalists in each of the last four competitions played – with Hibs holding the trophy on each occasion. City fell at the final hurdle in 2016 and 2019, with Hibs defeating Celtic in the two years in between.

The last time City held the cup was after an extra-time victory over the Edinburgh side in 2015, which took their tally to six. A win on Sunday will draw them level with Hibs on seven trophy wins each.

Celtic’s one and only triumph came in 2010.

Anything else?

Tickets are available at the gate, priced £8 and £2 while a fanzone will also be in operation pre-match from 2pm. There will be meet and greet opportunities with former players of each side – Jo Love (City) and Natalie Ross (Celtic).
