Key fixtures in Hibs' season

Hibernian's August fixtures

For many Hibs fans on fixture release day, attention immediately turns to the dates of this season's Edinburgh derbies.

The first meeting of the capital rivals will take place at Easter Road on the weekend of Saturday, 26 August, while Tynecastle will be the venue for a Boxing Day clash at 12:30 BST.

New head coach David Gray's men host Hearts in Leith before the split on the weekend of Saturday, 1 March.

After their opening-day trip to St Mirren, Hibs' first home game of the campaign sees champions Celtic make the trip to Easter Road on Sunday, 11 August.

Their first fixture against a side that finished outside the top six last season comes on matchday five when St Johnstone are the visitors.

Hibs complete their pre-split fixtures in April with a trip to face Rangers followed by a home game against Dundee.
