    Hearts' New Stand Thread (Merged)

    Just found an old STV link which has told us what they've been neglecting to mention.

    https://stv.tv/news/east-central/136...at-tynecastle/

    It's 20,099.

    Whatever it is it will still be smaller and inferior to Easter Road.

    I'm pretty sure the PBS capacity will be toiling to make 19,000 never mind 20,000.

    There is a stadium exiting plan as part of the new stand planning application and it notes their Wheatfield, Roseburn, and Gorgie stands as having capacities of, 5,918 , 3551 , and 3340 respectively.
    A total of 12,809.

    The deck area of their new stand is made up of seven section of 28 seats and two wing sections with 6 seats in a row. Our East has the same seven sections of 28 seats but our wing sections have 11 seats in them. We have ten seats more per row in our longitudinal stands because our pitch is 6 metres longer than the PBS.

    Their new stand will lose seating area for the directors box, dug-out area , press box, stair exits, and bigger seats for the executive bums. 6,200 will be a tight squeeze in that stand, which would be 19009.

    Remember the Club has already said there are only just over 5,400 season ticket seats available in the new stand so over 20,000 is a Yam figure pure and simple.

    Mental how they're building a new stand and will STILL have a smaller stadium than Easter Road. That would get under my skin big time! 😂

    Only big teams have a smaller stadium than their city rivals

    Yes but once they get their standing area, it will go up to 400k surly.

    There is no online seating plan for the new stand as per the complaints from the greeting faced jambo fuds who are trying to swap seats from the existing stands to the new stand. If they are trying to swap by phone / online they are being given any old seat, and if they want a specific seat they are having to go to the ticket office and queue to pick a seat from their seating plan.
    What are they hiding?

    The Jambos do. A lot.

    Their other three stands will still be not-fit-for-purpose crumbling death traps, unfortunately.

    The final capacity should be 19,788 but you make a good point about forced reductions - they already have had to cut seats from Georgie and Roseburn due to the cramped environment. The 'official' figure for the new main stand may be revised downwards. Anyone interested will be able to find out but their media pals/other propagandists will continue with the smoke and mirrors to perpetuate the lie that it's a 20,000 + stadium.

    I don't read sickback but from what others have mentioned on here there would appear to be a lack of threads regarding their new capacity!!

    This is what I think they are maybe not so much hiding but keeping quiet!!

    Most teams have a seating plan online so fans can pick seats!! Wonder why they don't have one??

    Stand will be delayed meaning those who buy tickets for new stand are forking out money for new seat but will have to sit in olds stands....

    It's 20,099.
    Shows a small minded attitude. At least when Spurs are building their new stadium, they have the front to ensure its bigger than their rivals one over at the Arsenal Library.

    some rumours going around that all seats will have seatbelts attached due to the steepness of the big pink stand, health and safety or something

    The new stand angle is 32 degrees, the Wheatfield is 34 degrees from horizontal.

    My yam associates still think it will be all singing and dancing for the time specified! I said no chance cos they were skint and the begging bowl is out again!! I am apparently jealous of the goings on down PBS way!

    Now I asked about the capacity once it has been finished and was again told 'bigger than yours'.

    I was wide and asked what the capacity would be and I reckoned it would be 20,099 at most.... The response was priceless.... That's a wee team capacity but skirted around this trying to change the subject!

    I get the impression that it's a subject they don't really want to talk about!!
