On Wednesday 1st February 2017, Heart of Midlothian Football Club will be playing Rangers Football Club at Tynecastle Stadium, with kick off being at 7.45pm.
With the match expected to be a sell-out, police in Edinburgh are requesting fans attending this match do so in a responsible manner.
To ensure the safety of all those in attendance, officers will have a high visibility presence in and around the ground and will assist stewarding staff to conduct searches of those entering the stadium.
Any flares, alcohol and items which could cause harm if thrown are strictly forbidden from being brought inside the ground and if anyone is found in possession of any of these items they will not get to see the match and are likely to face arrest and prosecution.
Fans travelling from outside Edinburgh are reminded that officers will be enforcing the city's drinking by-laws and so antisocial street drinking or consumption of alcohol in the street will not be permitted.
Chief Inspector Helen Harrison, Local Area Commander for Edinburgh South West, said: "This is the second time that Rangers have visited Tynecastle since their promotion to the Scottish Premiership last season and we anticipate a significant support for both teams.
“Ensuring the safety of all those who will attend the match is our priority and it's essential that supporters act in a responsible manner that does not put themselves or others at risk. We want both sets of fans to enjoy the game in the proper spirit."
