Supporters and culture

The Wee Team

Heart of Midlothian is one of two full-time professional football clubs in Edinburgh, the capital and second largest city in Scotland.[176] Hearts’ average attendance by supporters during the 2014–15 season was just short of 16,000.[177] This was comfortably the third highest figure in the country, ahead of clubs like Aberdeen, Dundee United and city-rivals Hibernian, and only behind Glasgow giants Celtic and Rangers. Important matches, particularly the Edinburgh derby, European fixtures and games against the Old Firm, always see Tynecastle at or very close to full capacity.[175][178]
