    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.

    I have always assumed that the elderly paid concession prices ?

    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.

    Where do we draw the line with season tickets and entry to any other game?
    Why change the rules for the League Cup semi and final?

    on the contrary...i'l be one myself in 11 years 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.

    Decent pricing.

    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.

    Looks like more tickets will be forthcoming if the 25,800 are sold.

    The difference between what they're asking pensioners to pay and what they might have to pay should they have been classified as a concession.

    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!

    cheers

    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.

    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.

    Belt and braces - but the two on your ST, then, if you can buy the ten together, do so and sell the two you already have

    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?

    Delighted with that. I can sit side on for a change. Way too expensive for the kids the last few semis and finals to do that.

    Must be a mistake surely. Cant imagine OAP's arent able to get a concession rate.

    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 ) and fully expect to get a ticket. Having already booked flights, I'm bloody well hoping so!!
