Heart of Midlothian Football Club, commonly known as Hearts, are a Scottish professional football club based in Gorgie, in the west of Edinburgh. It is one of two Scottish Championship clubs in the city, the other being their Edinburgh derby rivals Hibernian. Heart of Midlothian is the oldest football club in the Scottish capital, having formed in 1874 by a group of friends from the Heart of Midlothian Dancing Club. The modern club crest is based on the Heart of Midlothian mosaic on the city's Royal Mile and the team's colours are predominantly maroon and white. Hearts play at Tynecastle Stadium, where home matches have been played since 1886. After renovating the ground into an all-seater stadium following the findings of the Taylor Report in 1990, the stadium originally had a capacity of 18,008, but over the years this has been reduced to roughly 17,000 in order to comply with UEFA regulations.
Hearts have won the Scottish league championship four times, most recently in 1959–60, where they also retained the Scottish League Cup to complete a League and League Cup double – the only club outside of the Old Firm to achieve such a feat.
