I notice that this fixture is still down for a 3pm KO on Saturday 2nd April.

Is it too early to assume that the game will not be on TV and therefore the KO time won`t be altered or game moved to Sunday?

It`s not far away, and with the holiday period at that time, it would be handy to know for sure what the script is before making plans.

I can tolerate a Saturday lunchtime, but I hate Sunday lunchtimes. No enough time for a bevvy pre-match and the hangover prevents you getting into 'Derby Mode'.



How hard is it to schedule it for 3pm on a Sunday instead?

At the end of the season it will be interesting to find out how many of our home games kicked off at 3pm on a Saturday.

It's a worrying trend imo.

It would overlap with Sky's 'Super Sunday' 4pm EPL kick off which will no doubt see a massive clash between the likes of Wigan and Fulham.

This fixture will not be a relegation tussle come the 17th April as Hamilton will be well clear by then.

At the moment it's 5 out of 12 in the SPL.

To put it mildly, I am not amused!:grr:

We have had arrangements in place since July for the annual Orkney Hibs and Shetland Hibs supporters visit to ER to take place on 16 April for the Hamilton game. The change of KO to Sunday is totally unacceptable to the vast number of fans who make the long journey down from the Northern Isles and for this reason we will now be postponing the visit until the early part of next season.

To be fair to Hibs I did get a very apologetic phone call before the change was made public but I don't think the SPL know or care about the effect that such a change can have on so many people at such short notice. And all for the sake of TV:grr:

Agree with the majority of other posters though. Paying customer shafted yet again. And they wonder why crowds are falling. Only in football.

I would be interested to know how many times over recent years a derby at tynecastle has been played on a saturday v's a sunday and the same for us. It always seems to be a saturday kick off at their bit, not always on telly no wonder they pull in bigger / sell out crowds.

Since season 05/06, derbies at Tynecastle have been played on the following days;

Saturday-7
Sunday-1
Thursday-1
Monday-1
Tuesday-1

Derbies at Easter Road have been played on the following days;

Saturday-4
Sunday-8
Wednesday-1 (League Cup)

I can only find info for matches since 08/09 but in that time, there hasn't been a league derby that hasn't been televised, either at Easter Road or Tynecastle.

Was looking forward to the Orkney/Shetland day on the 16th which has now had to be postponed. The Hamilton game was chosen long ago because it was considered unlikely the game would be televised.

A lot of members have already made arrangements to travel down on the 16th. The paying fans are the last consideration when the TV gets involved. TV are the reason that a 10 team SPL is being suggested so they are guaranteed 4 old firm games a season although all the fans I know (including old firm fans) would prefer a 16/18 team league.

There were 2 games in 04/05 not televised, one game each at home, then in 05/06 one game at Tynecastle was while the other three were Saturday 3pm. Every cup and league game since has been televised. Given the games are over their short-lived 'must see' status, would be nice to get one or two back to their rightful place on a Saturday afternoon.

totally with you on that think the feeling on this thread goes someway to showing why season ticket numbers are dropping. I play golf on sundays most club comps are on sundays so i have to miss out not the end of the world i admit but there must be folk with real issues work/kids/hangovers:greengrin who this puts off buying, I know that games will change but when i buy my season ticket i assume that most games will be saturday 3pm

Wish the Hearts game would kick off an hour or two later but probably going to struggle now.

Will be in Halifax for the rugby on the day of the Hamilton game so I'm sure the Yam who owns the Pump Room pub near the station will be happy to put the game on!
