hooraaaaay for sensibility :party::scarf:

Another slight on pensioners.
Most people will be happy and won't care about the cost to the elderly.
I had hoped that after complaining about the cost of the semi, the prices for the final would be fairer to pensioners.

Whilst I sympathise with your position where do we draw the line, discounts for unemployed, full time students, families on low incomes? Let's just delight in the fact that we're in another cup final which has been priced, in my view, sensibly. There are as many working families as cash strapped as pensioners!

Quite so, but only when concessions are available, which they were not for the semi and are not for the final. :confused:

on the contrary...i'l be one myself in 11 years :greengrin but seriously your correct of course, it looks like the pricing has been set by both clubs and unfortunately only two groups have been taken in to consideration, i'd be interested if concessions were discussed at all between the clubs, and if not...why not

It's hibs sole decision on what they charge for season tickets, the pricing at a cup final is not under our total control, these will have to have been negotiated. It'll be based on supply/demand, will pensioners be willing to miss out on a cup final for the sake of a tenner, they obviously don't think so.

Would have liked to have seen is get 30K though just to give us a bit kore flexibility with sales and letting groups sit together.

I'm sure they will be but the initial allocation probably tightens up how we go about selling them slightly.

With 30K every ST holder could have got 2 so mates etc could sit together and there would have still been about 14K left. Anyway not complaining as everyone who wants will get one way or another.

does anyone know when they will announce when and how they will be sold? I want to be sure I can get a ticket before booking travel etc

I have the grand total of 10 loyalty points, so I'm one rung up the ladder before a general sale! I know everyone is saying anyone on the datatbase should get one but I'd like to be sure before forking out on the train!

I reckon, even with initial allocation, that anyone with enough points for half season ticket or above should get 2 tickets, then general sale.

With so many tickets coming our way, there must be a chance of something like that. Everyone who wants one should get a ticket; the Hibs support will be enormous.

So the question is do i buy 2 tickets from my season ticket or hang fire till the general sale as my group is 10 and would ideally hope to be all seated together.

IMO I would only have two "waves", season ticket holders and then general sale.

8,000 season ticket holders with 2 each would still only amount to 16000 even if every season ticket holder took up their second ticket option and lets face It there will be several thousand additional tickets made available after the initial 25,800.

What ever the allocation I don't think there will be a panic over getting a ticket

There's only 20,000 on the database. You'll get a ticket before general sale.

Hmmm, so you are being asked to pay an extra 3 over ER walk up price for a cup final. Pensioners, like me, are being asked to pay an extra 13, but all is well, aye? Seem fair to you, does it?

I would imagine that, with this volume of tickets available, the last rung of loyalty points to be given a priority period to purchase tickets before it becomes a general sale will be considerably higher than 10.

I'm on the database but have exactly zero loyalty points (to my eternal shame, gloryhunter and so on and soforth :greengrin) and fully expect to get a ticket. Having already booked flights, I'm bloody well hoping so!!

There's no "concession" category for these sales though, it's purely age related. U16 cheap, over that age 25 (which is a very fair price IMO, but anyway)

But you as a pensioner can get to the game for zero cost. So, whilst other adults will pay 35-40 to see the game you will manage it for 25. Not too shabby IMHO.

I think pricing in general for Scottish football is over priced, for all of us! However, as I mentioned earlier they've obviously decided to reduce the standard ticket price with the expectation that pensioners will be willing (for these one off games) to pay the same adult rate. If they'd charged 35 for an adult ticket and 15 for an oaps there would have also been an uproar, they can't please everybody I guess. I would however say that if anyone is struggling to find another 13 to attend a football game then their financial priorities should lie elsewhere and that should apply to supporters of all ages.

5 points or 100 points, there has to be a point in having loyalty points and these guys should be given the chance to buy tickets before any general sale (after ST holders of course).

Unfair and uncalled for IMO. Pensioners have a limited income and so it's a fair point to raise. I can think of no reason why the category of concessions applied by Hibs for a game at ER shouldn't be available for this game.

Archie89

I hope there will be. My young son was nearly put off for life during the 4-3 falkirk semi when there was no designated family section. . The fighting, arguing and general idiotic behaviour of a few around us had him terrified.

Going from Kirkcaldy then you can get a bus straight to Glasgow. There's a X27 leaving Kirkcaldy at 11:35, arriving into Glasgow at Half One. You then have plenty time to get down to Hampden on any number of buses from there.

After the game there's a bus at 18:00 that gets you back into Kirkcaldy at 8.

Those times look absolutely perfect for your day out at Hampden and, at zero cost, it means that the cost your day out is considerably lower than for other adults. :thumbsup:

I'm surprised there's no price structure for different groups and I think the tickets are expensive if there isn't. It seems strange there's no family ticket or no cheaper tickets for considerably worse seats behind the goals. It won't put me off as I'll get a good seat and can afford it but I can see it taking considerable numbers off the gate for the people who may have been tempted to take the family but have second thoughts when adding it all up.

There may still be more to come out before they go on sale but I can't see it selling out at these prices.

Onceinawhile

Indeed. I'm fairly certain there was a family section at that game (5 a kid rings a bell) but because the tickets were cheaper it also attracted a number of numpties.

Aye i know what you're saying, also experienced this in family sections but generally less extreme. A group of lads or whatever having a day out on the bevy looking for their version of "atmosphere" are less likely to buy tickets in a family section if there is one.

It was cheap for kids but anyone could buy anywhere in the east at those prices (15 and 5). Where as at the celtic final there was a section which you could only buy tickets in if you were buying a child ticket within your group.

Yeah if there's any genuine issues with not being able to pay for their ticket then I'd happily chip in to help out.

I know how much my late grandad would have loved to attend this game so if there are issues then count me in to help out.

Lancs Harp
04-02-2016, 05:57 PM
From my own point of view the 25 for a match ticket is a relative small percentage of the weekend cost.

Transport from Blackpool to Glasgow and back, Saturday night out and stop over in Glaschu, plenty of pop etc etc etc.

Not going to be cheap but as someone posted what price these memories.

Seen something on Twitter about 100 Hibs.net fans contacting Hibs asking that they allow them all to sit together and it's ruffled a few feathers.

Don't know if that's what they've asked but that's what's doing the rounds

Eh, no that's not true. On whose twitter was that as if what you post is correct then someone's just trying to be funny. In a not very funny way :-)

*sigh* More them and us.

This all (probably) stems from the thread on the Bounce where I saw they had contacted the club and had 100 tickets allocated - right now, weeks before public sale - in section D1 of the North Stand. For those who don't know D1, is one the best viewing area's at Hampden.

I posted on the PM board here about it and Jack (who is a regular over there) gave his side of the story as someone who organised it. I didn't agree, but hey, that happens.

I'm not overly fussed about groups being allocated area's but to hand over tickets in the best seating areas before regular Joe Public has a chance to buy - especially when tickets are priced the same and there will be big demand for D1, etc, seemed very unfair to me? And it appears that others large groups could also do the same. It's probably been going on for years at every cup final, who knows.

That's it.

And it's not hibs.net who have complained, no matter what the twitter feeds say. Any opinions I have on it are mine.

You've literally got no idea what you're talking about.

The Bounce weren't handed any tickets and would have needed to get them when they went on sale, just like everyone else.

If it had been a Hibs.net Block then nobody would have batted an eyelid; on this site or, more importantly, on the Bounce.

Really can't understand why there was a problem with this. The Bounce are running a few buses to the Final and most of them wanted to sit together; like they have done the last 2/3 times at Hampden and also at a few away games (Hamilton in the play-offs springs to mind) so I don't see why this game is any different. Especially considering we'll be getting more tickets for this game than we had in any of the previous games.

Did you complain to Hibs about it? I find that incredibly petty if you did. Jamie & co are running 8 buses to the final, helping groups of long standing supporters get to the final and have a good day out. He is also going out of his way to get a block of seats for pals. You must have a pretty bleak existence of you took time out of your day to contact the club to moan about this.

I think that if hibs.net - you know, the mouthpiece for the board, the sycophants, the admins that are all in the club's pocket, that hibs.net - had been given 100 tickets before they were on sale, there'd have been all sorts of pish about it.

That stand holds 10,000 folk, Jamie arranged for 100 seats to be sold on a block to folk who qualified on the 1st tranche. 1% of 1 stand. Making it easy for that group, easier for the ticket office and generally a decent thing to do. Obviously he doesn't actually have the tickets yet, I doubt they're printed yet.

No one was jumping a queue, it was just making life easy. I seriously doubt anyone from the 1st tranche would miss out on a north stand ticket if that's where they wanted due to this arrangement. But you've put the kybosh on that with an act of fuddery rarely seen between fellow supporters. Well done you.

I think you're right about that, everyone will get a ticket there, so with that in mind...why should anyone jump the queue, which of course was what it was. It makes it easier, but only for those who jump the queue. It doesn't make it easier for anyone else.

I don't have a problem with them asking, if you don't ask you don't get, but they should have been told they had to wait until the sale. Why shouldn't they have to wait?

You call it an act of fuddery, but it's less of an act of fuddery, in my opinion, than thinking you're somekind of special fan who doesn't need to wait for tickets like other people do.

And what's the maximum block booking you can make think I might see if the West of Scotland Branch and hangers on can sit together and each block booking can have their own supporters flag to add to the atmosphere One big happy Hibs family roaring their Team on

It's no much different from a group of 100 people rocking up to the ticket office, sauntering past the queues and going right to the front, then telling everyone "dinnae worry, there will still be tickets for yous".

Its still based on loyalty points, so no skipping.

I agree totally. No group should be allowed to obtain some of the best seats before anyone else, it's just plain wrong. If they all have the relevant points they will easily get a block of 100 in the first wave.

Moaning about 100 tickets out of an allocation of 30,000+ seems a bit petty to me.

It's the location and pre-booking not the number which is annoying but then you know that don't you :agree:

Doesn't seem to have become the norm considering the Bounce have done this the last 3 (maybe 4) times we've been at Hampden and numerous other games since (most recently being last week at Tynecastle).

That's the only thing I can think of as I doubt anyone would just complain without asking for a similar deal regarding a group of seats.

Are hibs stopping the bounce block booking any seats at all or are they simply not offering them D1 any more?

I never read the bounce and only went over the other night to see if it was still open :wink: and saw it. No idea it had been happening for years.

This site isn't interested in a block booking or in stopping others, but again you choose to ignore the point about it being the best viewing seats in the North supposedly allocated. That's my only gripe. Having been to Hampden plenty times before and suffered rubbish views, you'll know it's much better to be in North or South.

Petty? are you serious? get a bloody grip. Supposing you weren't in this priviliged group and got seats behind the goals, would you be happy? Why should anyone get preferential treatment. There is a system in place, which I'm not happy about either. I think season ticket holders should get priority, but I'm having to abide by the decision.

They didn't do it on behalf of anyone, as far as i know. I don't have a gripe with anyone, be that those wanting to book tickets, or those that think it's unfair. That's their prerogative, life's too short to have gripes about that stuff.

It's not the people sitting together that I care about, it would be great if we could all sit with our family and friends at the match. What I think is totally unfair that this group have, and are being given priority over Joe Bloggs.

You seem to be deliberately ignoring the fact that NO SEATS have been pre allocated to anyone.
But feel free to keep posting it till it becomes FACT

You're wasting you're time Brian. I think Gail has got the bit between her teeth now and after stamping her feet a few times she'll be emailing the club to complain about the ticlets that haven't even been allocated.
