I thought we had about 11,000 ST holders? In theory there could be 22,000 with tickets, which is more than capacity, and would leave no room for away fans or walk ups. Wont happen of course.

Would be great if we could get enough to allow half the of the south to be opened.

A free ticket is a free ticket, surely this scheme will encourages more folk to attend so I personally can't see where the problem lies.

Think thisll be interesting to see how many turn up.

There was a thread earlier on in the season about reducing ticket prices to get a bigger crowd. So if it is lacklustre numbers for the game- pretty much not selling out the ground, then that's prob the death nell of the 'reduce prices to increase crowd' argument.

We'll also get an idea about how many hibbees there are that can be bothered to turn up.

Get along to the ground. Get behind the team.

One question though - I know it says "every" but are concession ST holders (student, child, disabled,oap) able to do this as well and introduce anyone?

Mikey
09-02-2011, 07:10 PM
Don't forget folks, this isn't just going to happen itself.

YOU have to find someone to bring along.

YOU have to pass the details onto the club and get the ticket.

A lot of fans have drifted away over the last couple of years. This is YOUR chance to help get those people back.

Don't leave it to someone else :wink:

I thought the Hibs board were purely after the bottom line, didn't give a flying fig about the fans, ran the football purely as a business, etc etc etc?? :confused:

This is the latest in a long line - they've had more of those extra "Family Days" in the FF Lower in the past season than in the 10 (??) seasons beforehand - of incentives/cheaper kids tickets/giving something back to the fans that have been coming more to the fore in the past 12 months or so.

Well done the board :thumbsup::worms:

Any ST holder who hears about this and doesn't do it needs to have a long hard look in the mirror imo.

I think it's a clever option and anyone reading this should be telling their ST holding mates to ensure they send an email in. We all must know someone who has stopped coming for whatever reason. Lets fill the ground, I don't see any reason why we can't if we ALL play our part.

I agree that this is a very good idea and a good gesture by the club and I know you are just having a dig at those who slag the board but it is about the bottom line. Companies don't hand out free samples because it makes them feel good.

More people will come along, this freebie may result in more coming back which means more revenue.

It's a very good idea and imo the best way to make money is to make the customers feel like they're getting a good deal. This does that, as you say Well done the board :thumbsup:

I think this thread is looking after itself really.

If you can offer a free ticket to someone then post it up on this thread. If someone takes you up on it just edit the thread so that others can see that it's gone.

It can be done by PM, on this thread, or wherever.

Let's get as many people along as possible.

09-02-2011, 10:13 PM
This is an excellent move by the club. :agree:

Although I probably won't be in a position to take up either this or the shirt printing offer that was made yesterday, this type of thing has been long overdue.

The one thing I don't agree with is that it states that the season ticket holder is responsible for the person that they nominate for a ticket.

Surely if the nominee is an adult, they are solely responsible for how they conduct themselves in a public place?

No-one else should be held accountable, in my opinion, and since the nominee's personal details have to be given to the club at the outset, surely if they are involved in any unruly behaviour at this game, their details can be easily taken off the database on a permanent basis and they will be subsequently banned from attending any Hibs games in the future, without any need for reprimanding the season ticket holder.

After the two 1-1 draws against ICT and Hamilton in September, I swore not to go back until things changed drastically.

With the recent additions to our midfield, I'm now of the mind that it might be worth going back for another look.

If any season ticket holder would care to nominate me, drop me a pm and I'll give you my details.

It says something about sending the application for 2 tickets together on the one email. So you'll presumably need to find a couple of season ticket holders that know each other and get one of them to send the email.

I think this is a fantastic idea and kudos to the club. This exact idea was suggested by another poster on here quite recently, so the club ARE listening.




However, Green Day (http://www.hibs.net/showthread.php?172843-Atmosphere-Green-Day-Further-Update&highlight=green+day)? I shall be consulting my lawyer forthwith.

All this says to me is that my custom, as a walk up fan is no longer wanted, so F. em, I wont be going back. That will leave lots of room for the season ticket holders ( many of them posted missing from the cat B games I have been at)
and their pals.


Don't you know ANY Season Ticket holders? I'm sure somebody would help you out with a free ticket.

Am I the only one who thinks these tickets should really be aimed at Hibs fans who over the last few years have stopped going to the games for whatever reason and need a nudge back in the right diretion rather than a number of regular walk up fans who are too tight to pay the £22 on the gate.

I'm all for getting as many people inside ER as possible but from what I've rad on here there seems to be a few regular walk up fans who want to take advantage of this and get a free day out.

Surely the onus is on the Hibs ST holder then to identify these guys. Yes possible that the club could've sent out free tickets to all lapsed ST holders but then you'd have walk up fans posting that there being treated as 2nd class Hibs fans.

It's a great idea and how the tickets are used is entirely up to Hibs fans.

(I'm sure however the details obtained will be used for marketing purposes to get these guys bacj)

So what makes you think that after 90 minutes against ICT that they will start going to games again. If they haven't been to Easter Road for a few years I would say that it would take more than a category B game to entice them to return. Maybe when we are challenging for Europe or in the latter stage of cups will be the time that they get back on board.

Personally I would rather see a free ticket going to someone who has put their hand in their pocket over the past year or so despite the product and results on the pitch than someone who has sat at home or in the pub booing at the tv.

Yes I've put my name forward for a free ticket but if nothing becomes of it then as normal I will stump up my £22 and pay at the gate.

Regardless of who gets those tickets I hope that ER will be close to capacity for the visit of ICT and we all enjoy a great performance by the team and the 12th man. Seeing ER bouncing may entice Adam Rooney to sign for us. :aok:

I've got no idea if the people will go again, they might not become ER regulars but even if it encouraged them to go to a few games a season then it would be worth while.

You would rather see a free ticket going to someone who has put their hand in their pocket over the last year or so and gone to games regulary, what like season ticket holders?

I've not got an issue with the free ticket scheme, I think it is a great idea and for what it's worth i've given my allocation to someone. As I said above, he might not become a regular again but even if it ecourages him to come to a few games its worth while.

My issue is with regulars who pay at the gates, who irrespective of the free ticket would be there anyway.

As for your last point, totally agree. It will be great seeing ER bouncing.

It is a bit like the prodigal son thingy from Hibs point of view, perhaps, but I can't believe I am the only pay at gate supporter who might feel miffed.

As I see it, it aimed at those who are currently investing in the club with their season tickets and heading off any critics among them who might say what's the point in buying a season ticket in future when there is little incentive to do so – see multiple threads about STs not providing a sufficient enough saving; no point in STs anyone will get into any game now the capacity has increased blah, blah, etc., blah!

I’m sure there will be a wide cross section of all Hibbies among the nominees from regular walk ups; former ST holders; folk that who haven’t been for years; partners who don’t come along that often or never and maybe even a few virgins (in the Rocky Horror meaning :greengrin).

The vast majority of freebies will be with pals and may be encouraged to go back as paying pals in the future.

Perhaps the Hibs marketing team and season tickets holders could conjure something up between them whereby those fans who haven't been to ER for a couple of years or so are tempted back with a 3 game pass rather than just a one off game. It's not as if we don't have the seats to accommodate them and it wouldn't cost the club anything except manpower (or womanpower) and postage etc.

Something has to be done but what that is I don't know.

So, is ANYBODY paying in the old fashioned walk-up way then?? :greengrin

Great incentive from Hibs though. They'll be hoping some of the poverty-strcked scaffs (joking, joking :greengrin I'd be there on a freebie if I was in town) that take up a free ticket will be tempted back into coming along to a few more games as walk-ups in the future, cos they must be losing money on this as a one-off.

To be honest I think you are either being unreasonable or aren't looking at the big picture.

They are giving free samples because they are trying to entice people to try that product again i.e. getting people to go to games again.

If you always buy a caramel wafer every day for your lunch would you be pissed off if Tunnock's gave away a crate of caramel wafer's to increase their customer base?

But that's not quite the same issue. You don't buy a year's supply of caramel wafers, in advance, in August though, like you do with a season ticket when you're effectively buying to see 19 home games all in one go so that the club receives much needed cash, up front in a lump sum.

If Tunnock's decided to give away a free crate of their wafers, you would still benefit as you would get a free wafer out of it, even if you had been buying them for years.

With this deal, someone who is a season ticket holder and who has paid for 19 home games last summer, in advance, is really losing out on one game because people who are not season ticket holders are getting to see one of those 19 matches free of charge.

As a season ticket holder myself, I personally have no objections to this offer and I think it's a good move by Hibs, as I have already said before in this thread. I'm just trying to see things from the other side of the argument.

It is most certainly a good move. They are trying to get a good atmosphere for a big home game, trying to get more people on the database, trying to get lapsed fans back in the swing of things. An they may just make a bit extra cash in the club shop, etc.

Really good stuff coming from marketing at the club at the minute.

Its a good way of helping with the push up the table which is in itsself worth the 'investment' as well as a cheap way of gaining marketing details of lots of potential future 'customers'...:cgwa

I think the reason this is aimed at ST holders is that it allows the club to track where the free tickets are going. The result is hopefully a few hundred new, and old, ( legit ) Hibs fans entered onto the database, as well as a packed house house at a time where we need the 12th man more than we have done for some time.

I don't think for one minute this is the club sticking the two fingers up to you or any other walk-up fan. When you think about it, it's not as if ST holders are getting 'something for nothing'; only those they choose to nominate :agree:

Anyways if anybody wants to take up the free tickets with four available send me a PM. It would be easier if you are taking the lot for family mates but if you only want one or two no problem.

You will have to provide all the details to me as per Green day form and I'll do the rest.

We are in the east stand so I assume unless it is already sold out your ticket(s) is/are likely for there as well.

I'm all for getting as many people inside ER as possible but from what I've rad on here there seems to be a few regular walk up fans who want to take advantage of this and get a free day out.

Why?

So someone who hasn't been back since the league cup win in 2007 is more deserving of a freebie than someone who has paid there £22/£27 for every home game this season :confused:

And season ticket holders moaning about losing out... technically your not losing out, we're just gaining. And i'm sure the lads/lassies who get the freebie will look after you. Think i'll be getting my auld boys, he'll get well looked after, pie and bovril in the ground, few pints, wee accumulator on for him etc.

Petrie (the most miserable bassa in world fitba) is giving away FREE tickets, no strings. Yet people are still moaning. We could win the treble this season and this place would still be full of miserable gits :greengrin

Petrie (the most miserable bassa in world fitba) is giving away FREE tickets, no strings. Yet people are still moaning. We could win the treble this season and this place would still be full of miserable gits :greengrin

Cheers Hibs (and the person who gives me his ticket):thumbsup:

It's not that they're more deserving but the point is to get more people at ER. That won't happen by giving free tickets to people that are going anyway.

I don't have any objection to either group taking advantage of this

Hibs should send out reminders via emails to fans who haven't done it yet.

Good to see that they are trying to find tickets next to current ST seats.

I wonder how many tickets have been given away so far? It would be great to see a near full house

If we get a significant increase in the crowd it might convince RP to do other things like this, or lower ticket prices!

Buy one get one free would work well :agree:

Eg. Say we have around 9.000 season ticket holders.

3,000 walk up fans all get a free ticket with everyone they purchase. 15 thousand hibees at a CAT B game would be awesome :thumbsup:
