The 2022/23 campaign will see the 17th ever Christmas Eve fixture in Hibernian FC’s history.
Following the release of the fixtures for the upcoming campaign, the SPFL has selected a game week on Christmas Eve (24 December, 2022) instead of Boxing Day.
For that festive fixture we will welcome Livingston to Easter Road in a 3pm kick-off.
Looking back through the history books, there has been 16 Hibs matches played on Christmas Eve before.
The first was all the way back in 1881 where we faced Dumbarton, and fell to defeat, in the Scottish Cup.
More recently, in this century, we have played two games on Christmas Eve. We faced Raith Rovers in the Scottish Championship in 2016, which finished in a 1-1 draw, and Dundee United in 2011 where we were beaten away from home.
We’ve won six, drawn four and lost six of our previous 16 Christmas Eve matches.
