United have never won the Challenge Cup but fellow Championship side St Mirren took the trophy in 2005.

"We're delighted to make today's announcement that Fir Park will stage this season's Irn-Bru Cup Final, including making tickets available to fans from as little as £5," said SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster.

"We wish both clubs the very best of luck for the final and hope they produce a classic for supporters in the stadium and those watching live on BBC Alba."
