    In the league 900 is the minimum but we could get less in a cup game so they have to play safe.

    I read on here it was fully subscribed but no idea if anyone was turned away. Iím not sure how high the demand is for one.
    Have to admit I have no idea myself but an easy solution to this is to expand it to maybe 600. That way all the regular away attendees are looked after for big away games. Infrequent away attendees like myself are in with the rest. Easy to administer.

    Thereís logic in there but itíd still be an all or nothing system and those that go to most games would be tied into buying tickets for all games for no benefit.

    Thatís the way season tickets have always worked. Very few people get full value for money with their season tickets because there are usually a couple of games a season that get missed for one reason or another.
    The away season ticket looks after the most frequent attendees but also preserves the value of the home season ticket by allowing access to Tynecastle tickets.

    The old one was always badly implemented, that and the HSL nonsense poisoned the idea of a loyalty scheme.

    I just don't think we need one, it solves a problem that doesn't exist.

    As a ST holder, if I bother my arse to log in to eticketing on the morning tickets go on sale for any game, I'll get tickets. Sure, the online ticket scramble is a pain but if you're there on time you won't miss out.

    So are the ubers really just looking to have their special status acknowledged and protected, by exempting them from having to take part in the scramble? Either that, or what they really want is guaranteed access to the 'best tickets' at away grounds, rather than just being able to buy a ticket.

    I've got nothing against a loyalty scheme in principal, but we don't need one.

    Thatís just not true, as Iím sure many people on here could testify to.

    I couldn't get tickets for hearts games twice last year despite being there on time and having the browser open for over an hour.

    On point A, the club has to sell away tickets no matter what. Having 300 sold without any extra work every week is a benefit to the club.
    Iíd be happy enough for them to open up the away season ticket, that way there would be no need for a loyalty point scheme.

    How are the 300 tickets no extra work,? it's the same amount of work as if non AST ticket holders buy them, they have to be allocated, payment processed, receipts printed then placed into envelopes and posted.

    At times we have had 4 folk on two or three different devices and still missed out. Last game at Tynie we managed to get 5 single tickets scattered all over the place.

    It is fully subscribed and there is a waiting list.

    My argument was that they were not extra work. Iím happy enough to accept that itís the same amount of work (although personally I think it will be easier than selling to the public).

    What a lot of people forget is you can get up the ladder for key away games if you have a loyalty scheme in place.

    If you look at this season, Hibs have had 3 home European ties and 2 Betfred Cup ties too. These games would have added up to much more loyalty points than away games so far

    So most of the these fans would have almost automatically got tickets for Tynecastle if theyíd attended all

    Might also have added a few more to home gates too, if a scheme was in place

    I would think you would not have to go much higher than the 300 before everyone who wants one gets one and then everyone is happy?

    I attended every single game in our promotion season. Home and away. All cup ties as well, except the Scottish cup tie at tynecastle because I couldn't get a ticket. Is that fair?
    Itís tough luck but hardly unfair, plenty missed out.

    Correct, but I think the poster in question has previous for nonsense like this. And calling away fans "ubers" is just attention-seeking.

    You must have uber wifi then and nobody is guaranteed at ticket in the online scramble and fine you know it.

    Away fans are ubers now? Would they still be ubers if there was a LP scheme in place which is fairer for everyone?

    I go to about 90% of away games so am I classed as an uber? Just wondering so I know if I can put it on my CV or not.

    Why is your preferred choice of private hire transport relevant to buying Hibs tickets?

    Depends on your reason for missing the other 10%.

    Work might be ok to retain your uber status but a true Uber fan would be expected to postpone home ownership for however long it took in order to be ever present. Fail.

    Yeah, I agree. I wasn't really saying it was or it wasn't. Just giving an extreme example. I know of a few people who only attended that away game all season.

    I was the same, which is why it annoys me that there isnít an option to choose however many tickets you are after, and the system allocate you seats (ie 5 together, or a 3 and a 2, or if there genuinely are just singles available then 5 singles). Would save so much time and hassle, having to select every different section to find out whether it is sold out or not, to then add that one ticket to your basket, to then go through it all again for ticket 2 etc.

    I agree that there should be a ĎI donít give a flying **** what section, just give me a ticket optioní to save all faffing about trying different sections.

    Not everyone is able to take time off or skive at work to attempt to get tickets so a loyalty point scheme would allow those fans to get their tickets in their own time within a limited window.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.
