THE William Hill Scottish Cup fourth-round tie between Bonnyrigg Rose and Hibs will be played at Tynecastle on Saturday, January 21 with a 3.00pm kick-off, the SFA confirmed today.

The Junior outfit, whose New Dundas Park ground has a capacity of around 1500, were keen to maximum revenue from the game with the cup holders and, following recent discussions with Hearts, the match will now go ahead at the home of the Hibeesí arch-rivals.

We should be taking big numbers along to this game, it's the first match in defence of OUR trophy. Tynie isn't far away at all and I'm sure tickets will be reasonably priced.

That lot from across the city will hate us being there rejoicing in our glory that they were in a perfect position to stop from happening.

Our first defence of the cup . The tie should be reasonably priced . We have 11k plus season ticket holders and the game is in Edinburgh. Don't see why we can't sell it out . I don't take the kids to the PBS but I will for this one .( I'll just warn them not to touch anything:)

Just be wary - new stand or not the existing stands are still a dump and the steps are a death trap when wet in the wheatfield.

Would guess Bonnyrigg would get the Roseburn and us the other stands. Think the Roseburn holds about 3500 which should be plenty for them.

Also means they can stop fans mixing after the game if they think it will be required.

It all depends how many tickets Bonnyrigg allow us to have.

As the away team, we're technically only entitled to 20% of the stadium capacity, which amounts to around 3,500 tickets.

If Bonnyrigg happen to attract an extra 12,000 fans for this match (all from the Gorgie area) which wouldn't overly surprise me, then they might be able to restrict us to the minimal amount of tickets.

If we're given the option of buying around 13,000 tickets then the match will sell out.

Bonnyrigg will sell out the Roseburn and I would expect Hibs to sell more than 6400! It is our first Scottish Cup Tie after the greatest day in our history and i think their will be a big demand.

Agreed, I'll be pleasantly surprised if we get anywhere near selling out, even the semi at Tynecastle last season didn't sell out until last few days. It's an away game & lots of Hibs fans simply won't go to games at that place.

We sold out both our last visits to the PBS.

Both were semi finals and this is against some part timers in an early stage but it should be a good occasion and the start of our defence to retain the cup.

Are Cup gate receipts split 50/50? if so, the more jambos that are there the better. They pay us for the privilege of us to mock them about chucking a 2-0 lead with 10 mins to go.

Hi Heid Yin

Don't believe for a second that more than a handful of Jambo numpties will dare attend this match.
They are simply telling themselves and us this to fool or convince everyone that it is their numbers which swelled any high Hibs attendance.
They are still greeting and bleating that we recorded the highest attendance at their sacred ground last season against St. Johnstone in the cup. The fact that we recorded the highest attendances in Edinburgh last season (both at ER and Tynie) hurts them BIG time....That and those last 10 minutes at Tynie, the replay at ER and of course, witnessing us going on to lift the BIG cup!!

If it's a decent price with walk up gates open then it could be a very decent crowd. I would estimate around 12-14 000. It's a brilliant game for us against a side we should beat comfortably and close to home.

0-7 would do me!!!

The stand is a death trap but I'm sure they have this master plan to keep it open for the rest of the season while they find the money to build it.

Hibs will easily fill Wheatfield.

The pub team 2 will probably fill the Roseburn - I would give Hibs the other end also.

Sir David Gray
21-12-2016, 09:33 PM
As I mentioned last night, as the away team we're only entitled to 3,500 tickets for this game so getting the Wheatfield Stand would actually be quite a lot more than the minimum number we need to get.

There's every chance a number of Hearts fans will fancy this knowing their history of attending our games so we may well be restricted to one stand.

Won't be a question of hiding allegiance, I imagine hibs fans will wear colours regardless of where they get a ticket - it's not likely bonnyrigg fans will cause bother.

Of course, if daft Jambo's turn up then it's a different ball game.

Could be interesting - and remember, we ain't the home team, or the stadium operator, so wont be us that get the grief when it all kicks off.

Perhaps the people I know are not representative of the whole town. Loads of the guys doing coaching and the bairns that play and their parents are Jambos. Way more than there are Hibbys anyway.

I was up at Turriff supporting the Rose and have been to a few games here and there. They are a great wee club but they, like every club, have a good few fans that like a fair scoop on match days. Given this is perhaps the biggest game in their history and we are defending the cup I suspect there will be more than a few bevvies drunk. With Hibs just getting the Wheatfield it pretty much guarantees that some fans will be mixed so I hope the lagered up fans find their way to different stands . I certainly don't want any bother as I will be trying to get tickets for me and my kids in the Wheatfield. If push comes to shove I'll go behind the goals but with the chance of lots of "neutrals" being there too I'd much prefer the Hibs end. Hope its a good day out for all but also hope Hibs win very comfortably.

I think both ends will be pushing it but can see Bonnyrigg bringing 3000+. Biggest game in their history and everyone connected with the Rose friends and families will be there.

When Whitehill Welfare from Rosewell just up the road played Celtic at Easter Road in 97/98? they filled the whole South Stand. Bonnyrigg much bigger

As a Bonnyrigg Hibee I hope it's a great day - but business is business and there a SC to defend 👍
