While most of Edinburgh will be out celebrating or drowning their sorrows on Saturday night, a team of workers will have an important job to do.
As soon as the final whistle blows Lothian Buses have to transform a plain white open-top bus into a carriage fit for the winning team.
With all the artwork agreed in advance, it will just be a case of painting the double-decker either green or maroon.
Shaun Burnett from Lothian Buses said: "As soon as that full time whistle goes we leap into action. We have got artwork agreed with both Hibs and Hearts so we know what we are doing and we know when we have to have it done.
"Saturday evening we will have this bus moved from plan white in to the livery and artwork of the appropriate winning team. It will take a few hours but we will get through it on the Saturday evening, what we don’t want to do is leave anything to the Sunday morning. The bus will be ready by Saturday night.
"The size of this final and the appeal of the rarity of this final is huge and it’s been the talk of the canteen since both teams got through their semi-finals."
Sunday will see the winning team set off from the City Chambers on the Royal Mile and make their way to their stadium. Two routes have been approved depending on who wins.
