Hibernian FC v Ross County FC– Hampden Park, Sunday 13 March 2016, 3.00pm
Televised live on BBC Scotland

The SPFL has today announced ticket prices for the Final of the 2016 Scottish League Cup, presented by Utilita Energy, which will take place at Hampden Park in March.

Following agreement with the two competing clubs, ticket prices have been set at £25 for adults and £10 for juveniles (under-16s).

SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster said: “We are pleased to be able to announce the ticket prices for this season’s Scottish League Cup Final, presented by Utilita Energy, following agreement with both clubs.”

Utilita Energy Managing Director Bill Bullen added: “It is a credit to both clubs that they have agreed ticket prices designed to attract as many fans as possible to this showpiece final. We are delighted to be playing our part in ensuring a memorable footballing occasion for everyone.”

Ross County fans will be accommodated in the West and South stands, with Hibernian supporters being allocated tickets in all four stands.

The Hampden Park Safety Officer and Police Scotland have approved initial ticket allocations of 25,800 to Hibernian FC and 7,000 to Ross County FC. These numbers will be reviewed in the light of actual demand from each club for tickets.

Hibernian FC Chief Executive Leeann Dempster commented: “We are thrilled to have qualified for the Final of the Scottish League Cup presented by Utilita Energy. We want as many Hibernian supporters as possible to get to the match, so with an initial allocation of 25,800 these will be snapped up quickly. We have spoken to the SPFL and additional blocks of tickets will be made available to us when we require them. It will be a great occasion for both Clubs and we are all very much looking forward to the day.”

Ross County FC Chairman Roy MacGregor added: “Everyone at the club is absolutely delighted to have qualified for our first Scottish League Cup Final – presented this season by Utilita Energy – and our second national cup final in just six years. We were backed superbly during our semi-final win over Celtic; I know all Ross County supporters from across the Highlands and beyond will be keen to be there on March 13, so I’d encourage everyone to buy their tickets early. It should be a superb atmosphere with both sets of fans and the big day can’t come quickly enough.”

The clubs will announce ticket sale information via their own channels in due course.

Great news. Not being moved for the rugby or any such piffle by the looks of it.

Good prices for a cup final as well.

My spur of the moment decision to book flights looks like the right one now :agree:

Wonder how it's been allocated, if our initial allocation is the full North and half the East, or if it'll be the full East and half the north??? The SFA won't want an empty North stand on the tele so they won't keep any for the County support and they'll know full well how many we'll sell in the end.

Hibs will have sections of all 4 stands. Ross County will get part of the West and part of the South.

Do folk actually read a post properly before replying?

I'm fully aware we'll end up in all 4 stands, I'm merely wondering how the initial 26000 will be allocated to us.

They're no initially going to give us 26000 and have unsold sections left between the stands.

The full North/ full East and half the South will surely be more than 26000, no? Maybe no actually with hospitality etc.

Or maybe I'm talking out my arse and we're getting the full Notth and half of both the East and West plus the South allocation.

hibee-boys
04-02-2016, 02:58 PM
We've initially been allocated tickets in all stands so I'm guessing they're wanting us to shift all the north stand, south stand lower and initial blocks of East/west stands first. More we sell the more East then west stands blocks will be released and then I guess south stand upper if needed.

I'd take a punt at the full north and half east, with the sections closest to the south left empty until required...makes it look full on TV and helps with stewarding. I also guess they'll keep the upper section of the south shut until required, so those that leave it late might end up with cracking seats.

There was circa 10k with 90+ so I'd say go straight to 2 per person for something like 180+ for a few days to give them the best seats then 2 per person 90+ for few days then 2 per person for 10+ for a few days then general sale as many as you like.

We need to release tickets ASAP so it's nearer last months payday, we don't want massive amounts of time per points group cause we need to get these sold them request more and give the SPFL the cursory 2 weeks to sort it and we want to keep momentum with the sales while wives, partners, 'day trippers' etc can get seats together.

I was thinking maybe 4 per ST holder letting everyone book family and friends together, but either way would be fine by me. I have a 16 seater booked and 4 per ST would do me. I do think we will all be together regardless though.

I would very happy with that but I can see it being two per season ticket holder. Means that me and my brother can take two 'guests' with us. One normally goes to the bingo on Saturday afternoon and the other has just began dressmaking classes. Happy days indeed. Bring it on.

Yup - everyone that wants to go will be able to go. So let's get the ball rolling by allowing peoiple to buy as many as they want. If they do it that way then tickets will fly out the door - for example, I want to buy around 60 tickets for my group.

because gail and others will fill the hibs end with hun pals and others who dont follow the club. Unavoidable that there will people there who don't support the club, allowing season ticket holders unlimited amounts would just make it a lot worse. too many non hibees would have a very negative effect on the atmosphere as well.

I wouldn't have a problem with season ticket holders (or people with a certain amount of points) initially buying an unlimited amount provided all tickets are allocated to people with one point.

I think you'll be accommodated anyway if there are 20 St's in your group.

There'll definitely be a public sale anyway.

Yup, for sure. Seeing as the supply of tickets is pretty much unlimited, Hibs do not need to get heavily inolved in the ticket allocation process. A light touch only is required in this instance.

If you care enough about the club to buy a ST, you will also care that tickets go to fellow fans. Unlimited purchase for season holders would present no problems in my view, but suspect a limit of 2 per ST will be implemented.


Let's hope there is a proper family section, with no tickets available to people without children, and that's it's not in the worst seats in the East stand.

This has been a consistent complaint from those taking family to Hampden. I wonder if this is something Frank or Amit can take forward?

£5 for Celtic kids in the North at the semi final but I don't expect that will extend to us in the final.

The Hampden Park Safety Officer and Police Scotland have approved initial ticket allocations of 25,800 to Hibernian FC and 7,000 to Ross County FC. These numbers will be reviewed in the light of actual demand from each club for tickets.

Hibernian FC Chief Executive Leeann Dempster commented: “We are thrilled to have qualified for the Final of the Scottish League Cup presented by Utilita Energy. We want as many Hibernian supporters as possible to get to the match, so with an initial allocation of 25,800 these will be snapped up quickly. We have spoken to the SPFL and additional blocks of tickets will be made available to us when we require them. It will be a great occasion for both Clubs and we are all very much looking forward to the day.”


Any one know roughly how much scope we've got for further allocation numbers wise..? Not very specific numbers wise with that statement. I would like to see 32-35k Hibees at least, which I think we would be able to achieve given the chance.

I've been to see both Dundee Utd and St Johnstone in 2 cup final each, with supporters of these teams. Also took my ICT supporting mate with me to the 2001 cup final v Celtic. He was probably more vocal in supporting Hibs than the 'part-timers'. Not judging anyone, just saying that other football fans might like to enjoy a final.

They should do away with the loyalty point system for this game. allow people to take family and friends that would otherwise not usually attend so they can all sit together. I just don't see the need for a loyalty system when we have an average attendance of 9-10k and have received an initial allocation of 25k. with potential for more tickets after these are sold.

Everyone that wants to go will get a ticket, but the crowd will be lower IMO if we start putting obstructions in place for family groups to sit together.

Everybody that wants to go will get a ticket for sure, but those with loyalty points should still get first choice of seats in my opinion. You don't create a scheme and then completely ignore it to satisfy folk who never attend games just because of the large allocation.

Whilst £25 is very reasonable for a Cup Final, I'm surprised a great seat in the North or South is priced the same as the poorer seats behind the goal. Doesn't seem fair in that regard. Are Hampden games always priced at flat prices?
Yes but all seats at Hampdon Parl are crap. Even if you buy instantly in the South Stand, you will be pushed beyond touch line. The seats in the East and West are so far behind the goal it isn't real. The North Stand is ok but the rake is too shallow to see things when seated.

The best seats in my view are the South Stand Upper Tier. They will not be issued until the other seats are sold.

It can only go two ways.

We get the east, the North and half the south. County get half the south and the entire West.

We both get the same as before except we get half the west each.

I'm not sure it can really be segregated any other way if I'm not mistaken and I don't know what the numbers would be in each scenario. I reckon half the west will be left empty until we both sell the majority of our tickets, then they will make a decision.

because gail and others will fill the hibs end with hun pals and others who dont follow the club. Unavoidable that there will people there who don't support the club, allowing season ticket holders unlimited amounts would just make it a lot worse. too many non hibees would have a very negative effect on the atmosphere as well.
Seriously ? grow up. The same 3 family members were at the Dunfermline, Livingston and Kilmarnock finals, they would have been to more had they been able to obtain tickets. We are talking about 3 football supporters here, all from Edinburgh in their late 50s, not tattooed scary knuckle draggers from Govan. And you can bet they will support Hibs on the day a damn sight better than a few of our own.

They have also been to games at ER.

I'm a season ticket holder and wouldn't care if it was by as many as you like / need. I want the Stadium full of Hibs fans and would love to see more than made the trip to see Killie.

This team deserves the backing and while a loyalty scheme is in place since there are a large amount of tickets available the club could save itself extra work by allowing bulk : group orders rather than splitting it up and complicating it.

Not got a problem with the tucket allocation so far, its so we fill the particular ends that syit the TV cameras, no point having it all patchy, I'm quite confident we'll get another 5-8000 tickets when these ones go and County will get another 3-5000+ too if they also sell out their allocation.

The most important thing here is that there will almost definitely be room for every Hibs and County fan who want to attend.

The response you've had to this and your original post is a wee bit over the top. Although I don't agree that any Rangers fans should be on our databse - I've also got a couple mates who don't support Hibs who come a long to watch the odd game (Derbies, Semi-Finals etc) just for the day out, the atmosphere, the pints beforehand and becuase they enjoy watching football in general regardless of who is playing. I don't see why that's such a problem?

If we sell 40,000+ for this final you can guarantee that every Hibby that wanted a ticket, will of got one with plenty room for the odd fan to bring a long a non-supporting friend or family member.

They're on the database because I have bought them tickets for games at ER, I was required to provide their names and addresses back then. They have been more recently and I haven't been asked when buying tickets who they were for. I think Hibs have abandoned that requirement now, either that or I have bought that many tickets over the years that I am trusted. Or maybe because I buy at least 4 season tickets per year, who knows :confused:.

One of my said friends is a Rangers fan. He's only been to a couple games quite a few years ago, mainly watched them on the tele and bought the odd Jersey. Not your typical Rangers fan from Ibrox who sings God Save the Queen in the shower every morning and who's house is draped in Union Jacks. He's not on the database but has come to maybe 4 or 5 "big" Hibs games with me as he enjoys the day out. Is that still a problem? If you had a mate who supported another club asking to come along to a Hibs game with you would you refuse because he supports another team? Seems very, very narrow minded to me.

Not every Rangers, Celtic and Hearts fan is a total mutant. Some people aren't that invested in their clubs and just want a day out with their mates. Football clubs are not some sort of secret society where you have to prove your worth to sit in the stand. It's an entertainment game. As long as you're not actively supporting the opposition team, you're pretty much free to come along if you like.

You can't convert them if you don't at least try.

ST holders should without doubt be catered for first, especially the guys and girls this season. However unlimited tickets is pushing it for a final in my opinion. I can't afford a season ticket and work weekends but get to as many games as I can. I know with the allocation I should be able to get one but if it's unlimited for ST holders then they, technically could buy the lot! That could mean lots of people going who haven't set foot in Easter road this season. I know this is unlikely but it is possible. :thumbsup:
