GO Football in Edinburgh

Football in Edinburgh When you think Scottish football usually the names of the country’s two soccer giants Celtic and Rangers come to mind. However not to be forgotten are Edinburgh’s two main teams Heart of Midlothian known to most as Hearts FC and Hibernian FC both of whom play in the Scottish Premier League (SPL).

As with its English equivalent the Scottish Premier League contains the country’s top football teams all competing to be League Champions. It has been more than eight years since a team other than Celtic or Rangers have been able to claim the top spot however the top three teams in the SPL at the end of the season have the chance to go onto further glory in the two major European competitions the Champions League and the UEFA cup. So there’s a good chance that you could see an Edinburgh club playing against European rivals next time round!

There are hundreds of smaller clubs who play regularly in Edinburgh – even the cab trade has a team! However the other notable Scottish capital football team is Livingstone FC. Although not strictly an Edinburgh club anymore they do have capital connections, as previously they were Meadowbank Thistle FC who had their home at the Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh.

In terms of women’s football Scotland has it’s own women’s league with over 40 teams across four divisions. Edinburgh has a number of teams in the league including Whitehill Welfare LFC, Tyncastle LFC and the Civil Service Strollers LFC but Hibernian Ladies currently rule the city’s ladies football roost with their their position as Premier League Champions in 2003/04.
