There WILL be St Johnstone fans at the Scottish Cup final, Uefa has confirmed.
European football’s governing body has informed the BBC that they have reached an agreement with the SFA for a limited number of supporters to attend the May 22 clash at Hampden Park.
The SFA are seeking Scottish Government approval for up to 3000 fans to attend.
It is yet to emerge how Saints and their opponents Hibs will distribute the tickets they are allocated.
BBC Scotland journalist Kheredine Idessane posted on Twitter the comment he received from Uefa.
It read: “Uefa has been able to find a solution with the Scottish FA to allow a limited number of spectators for the Scottish Cup Final.”
