In time 2 of Succession, the Roy spouse and children convenes in Scotland for a surprise celebration of Waystar Royco honcho Logan’s 50th 12 months in the small business. The youngest Roy, Roman (performed by Kieran Culkin), decides to impress his father by buying Logan’s childhood soccer club, Coronary heart of Midlothian, who are crosstown rivals to fellow Edinburgh club Hibernian. It turns out that Roman’s big reward was for naught—Logan’s in fact a Hibs supporter. Guess Roman would’ve been better off supplying him a sourdough starter.

This 7 days, the real-lifetime Hearts FC teamed up with NOW Television set, a membership streaming assistance that airs Succession in the U.K., to release a restricted-version Hearts kit fronted with the Waystar Royco logo in homage to the storyline. They’re giving away the shirts this 7 days on Twitter, and proceeds from the partnership will benefit MND Scotland, the charity group whose brand is commonly on the Hearts’ kit. (As the Instagram announcement read through, MND “kindly gave up the front of the jersey room for just one working day only!”) They’ve even place Waystar branding all around the club’s stadium, Tynecastle Park.

“Just like the Roy youngsters in Succession, we’re a club battling for the one position at the extremely leading,” Hearts manager Robbie Neilson stated in a assertion. “Unlike the Roys though, we know we can only get there by performing jointly.” The club’s CEO Andrew McKinley included: “We like watching the Hearts-similar storylines in the exhibit, while we’re fairly grateful not to have any users of the Roy family working the club in authentic life! Brian and Kieran [Culkin] are often welcome in the director’s box at Tynecastle as a visitor of the actual proprietors of the club—the fans.”
