The fixture schedule for Hibs' Premier Sports Cup group campaign has been confirmed.

The Hibees were drawn alongside Queen's Park, Kelty Hearts, Peterhead and Elgin City in Group C, with the competition set to get underway in July. Each team plays on four of five matchdays, with the group winners and three best runners-up progressing into the last 16 stage, at which the Premiership teams who qualified for Europe will enter the fray.

Hibs will begin with a long trip to Elgin City on July 13, before welcoming Queen's Park to Easter Road on Tuesday, July 16. It's then away to Kelty Hearts on Saturday, July 20, before having the night off for the following Tuesday's games.
