I've just received an e mail from the Club saying that it's a Family Fun Day on Saturday and an Adult + 2 kids (under 15) will be allowed in to the Famous Five Stand for 22.

And oh aye - you also get the chance to meet the Hibs Mascot in the form of the Sunshine on Leith Lynx.

It's not like Hibs to offer a package like this but well done all the same!

That's much better value - well done to the club. Now hopefully some youngsters will attend that might not have due to cost.

:greengrin how many of the current squad could you say that bout as well though!!

Good move by hibs hopefuly see more of these promotions throughout the season to boost attendances and get the young ones supporting hibs early.

This is more a SPL thing than a Hibs thing. Every SPL club has to do some sort of promotion as part of the family fun weekend. Nae danger Hibs would be doing this if they didn't have to. Still welcomed though, will save me 20 this weekend.

Motherwell are doing 1 adult and 3 kids for 22 for both 'Well and Dons supporters. Cannae grumble at that. Caley are letting kids in for 1, even for Hertz supporters and will have players from both teams doing signing sessions.

Hibs do nothing to encourage kids along to games.:agree:
Well I suppose there are four Hibs kids days. But apart from that what have Hibs ever done to encourage youngsters to attend?
And there was the tickets given away free to the cadets at the Rangers game. But apart from that......................:greengrin

Good for the 14 and unders, the age group that would be going with their parents anyway.

They do nout for the 15-16 year olds though, the type of age group of would go on their own. Well except charge 12 for the likes of Hamilton and 14/17 for OF & Hertz. :agree:

I said last week after walking away from the game that with the size of our stadium now, we should be allowing Hibs Kids in for free to all Cat B games, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Non Hibs kids could be allowed in for, say, 5, which would probably encourage all the kids to join.
Even if by some miracle, Yogi got Hibs winning and the crowds returned, I believe we could still easily accommodate them all in these games.

I think we all know that going to ER is a habit and once that habit is broken, it is hard to get it formed again.

A very good point was also made by 'Antifa' regarding 15 and 16 year olds. These are the fans who will hopefully be working in the immediate years ahead and we have to encourage them to part with their hard earned cash, if they have managed to get jobs. 10 or 12 for them would be good, just let's get the fans coming back through the door again.

And that's exactly why it doesn't happen more often, because we need twice as many new fans in one go just to break even from existing supporters who are spending less per head than for any other game.

But my nephew is now going to go with his laddie, so that's 2 gained and two more Hibbies through the gate :thumbsup:

I'd doubt it. Everything seems to be geared towards young Hibs fans as the Club have also organised other activities such as the handing out of stickers & sweets, face painting and special offers in the Hibs shop.

After much debate on here, I think the attendance was finally agreed as being 11,938 (or something like that!)

Perhaps is the lynx does go onto the pitch he could take care of the litter that covered it last week, making it look like we were playing at the edge of a recyling bin! What exactly were the ground staff doing at HT?

In all serious Hibs well done, a good effort to bring people to The Road. Yogi + players give us another reason for enjoying the day and encouraging other back!

You don't, as with most of these offers if you've paid the club in advance for a whole season you can't take advantage and have to pay full price for your kids, it's a shame as my kids enjoyed their first game last week and are keen to go again !

Huh, I wish!!! Your Dad will feel the same way as me Em I am sure. Whinga about it all day but more than happy to take you. How you doing anyway? Not heard from you for ages.

BOOgers you disgusting little man you. Got to bypass the sweary filter somehow. :greengrin


Dinnae worry GT, in six years time you will get in for next to nothing and they will still be paying full cost :greengrin

Joking aside, I suppose I don't see them that often and it sure ain't often I can get the two of them together, and I reckon the last time both them managed to get to a game together was the LC final (which I missed but seem to recall buying the tickets anyway!!!). All in all, I'll pay the tickets and be the chauffeur, they will be buying the bevvy on Saturday night:greengrin

Is the Hibs kids thing not a bit of a sham???

I'm sure I was reading something on here a week or so ago about the Hibs Kids and it was any kid who wasnt a season ticket holder, had until like 5pm the next day to get to the ticket office to get their tickets for the games this season. How many kids could get down to ER before 5pm, especially if their parents are working?

In my day you just got sent out 4 tickets in the post for the games.

On a slightly different note, Hibernian are absolutely piss poor at public relations!!!

I'm sure it must have been possible for the tickets to be claimed over the phone? If not, then I agree a bit of a sham, but what's the point in assigning seats to kids who may not turn up unless we're planning on doing a Yam-style attendance figure?

Yeap, you can phone up for them. Never had a problem getting HibsKids tickets and popping in to the ticket office isn't an option for me.

I'd like to see the extremist element of our support buy tickets for the famous five this week and attend the game with a huge banner to hang that reads '**** *** and die, Yogi'

Then the press can get the pics of the kids having their photo taken with the Lynx and this banner in the background.

That'll teach Hughes to accept the manager's job at ER. Isn't he a hun anyway or something?
