Edinburgh Airport’s iconic air traffic control tower will turn yellow this weekend as the terminal shows its support for the club ahead of Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final.
The airport’s control tower will be lit up yellow on Friday 26th February to Sunday 28th February as a sign of support for the Lions. The tower has previously turned maroon and green to celebrate the success of Hearts and Hibs respectively, and often turns blue to show support to the Scotland rugby team.
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:
“Watching your team get to the final of a major competition is always exciting and we know Livingston fans will be incredibly excited, and nervous, ahead of Sunday’s final.
“We know the team are flying at the moment so we hope showing our support to one of our local teams will see the safe arrival of the League Cup to Livingston.”
John Ward, Chief Executive of Livingston said:
“This is a brilliant gesture from all involved at Edinburgh Airport.
“I must also applaud them on being true to their word as I made a smart comment on Twitter when they lit the tower maroon for Hearts recent Scottish Cup Final match. They did respond and said if Livingston got to a cup final, they would do this for us too. I was sceptical that we would ever be in this position but it’s great that we are and brilliant that the airport are doing this in support, so a huge thanks to Gordon and the team.”
