The 2018 Scottish Cup Final was the 133rd final of the Scottish Cup and the final of the 2017–18 Scottish Cup, the most prestigious knockout football competition in Scotland. The match took place at Hampden Park on 19 May 2018 and was contested by Celtic and Motherwell.

The fixture was a repeat of the finals in 1931, 1933, 1951 and 2011, all of which were won by Celtic. It was also a repeat of the League Cup final earlier in the same season, which Celtic won 2–0.[1]

Celtic completed a successive domestic treble ("double treble"), a feat which had not previously been achieved in Scottish football.[2]
