    Season Ticket Pricing 2020/21

    The thread on ticket admin costs got me thinking to the above - the first season ticket campaign under Ron Gordon's stewardship of the club.

    Based on the last couple of years we're about eight or nine weeks away from the campaign launch: what are you expecting?

    Not sure about Season Ticket prices but it wouldn't surprise me if the cost of attending single games were increased.

    I'm basing that on the fact that a lot of other clubs have higher prices than us, including the likes of Livingston and St Johnstone, and having had a number of price freezes in the last few years.

    £395 for early bird adult season ticket

    I wish they would rebrand it as Hibs membership.

    Gold - Away and Home ST
    Silver - Home ST - away game priority
    Bronze - walk up

    Costs vary and you can have add ons in each package.

    Think our walk up for Cat B games is £23, think it was £25 at Livingston and Ross County, and £22/£23 at St Mirren and Hamilton
    Maybe the likes of Livvi and Ross County, charge as as a Cat A game?

    I think we will see something different this year.

    Bonkers! Why should Home ST holders be classed as second class supporters?

    Sadly, I agree.
    Expecting some dressed up jiggery pokery which would be the american influence.
    A dangerous strategy if they do for example decide to charge different prices to sit in different parts of the ground ala Hearts.
    Should keep the current one adult season ticket price. Keeps us all in it together.

    I think they will be careful to not mess about with things too much. Hearts pricing strategy seems to draw quite a bit of criticism from their fans.

    Hibs board are obviously aware that season ticket sales dropped somewhere around 6-7% this season I think, so they need to be careful not to upset the balance.

    I could see walk ups going up a pound or two though.

    That's just a load of old **** status based capitalist marketing drivel.
    Keep all the home season ticket holders as a united group.
    Don't make anyone feel better than anyone else by introducing platinum, gold, silver and bronze season tickets or similar bull****.
    Hibs season ticket holders are as one supporting the team and should always have and be seen to have equal status.

    We also had a different charge for the Aberdeen game at ER, in between the Cat A and Cat B price. They just seemed to keep that one quiet though.

    Think there will be interest added to the season ticket loan this year. Wonder if the finance company will be the same.

    Agree.

    #weareallhibs but some people think away supporters are more important.

    Never said 2nd class supporters.

    Though a ST isnít value for money so the idea of a membership may entice more to buy or continue to buy.

    Wouldnít be a fan of the Hearts type pricing - even they were doing that you may as well fix the FF lower issue and empty seats.

    The idea was about getting more £ into the club = better players ideally.

    We have fans regularly moaning about funding and away tickets etc so just an idea to maybe sort it.

    The last thing I would want to do is split the Hibs family so I can understand what your saying.

    I would be happy to keep it the way it is - but wish they would sort the match day experience as thatís been neglected for too long and is only getting worse.

    I genuinely don't get this "match day experience" phrase that seems to be quite a popular thing to say in recent times. To me the match day experience is down to how the hibs play and if we get a result. Put it this way I'm never in my puff going to come away from a game that we've lost and talk about having a fantastic match day experience because I bought a half decent pie and I could hear the pre match and half time tunes and the stadium announcements clearly??

    I wonder if increasing walk ups by a pound or two could ultimately lead to greater season ticket sales i.e. if a ST comes to be seen as better value than it presently is?

    Personally I miss on average 2-4 games per season so my season ticket is never good value for me, but it does mean I get to keep the same seat all year round.

    I would rather see Hibs win in a fantastic stadium - eating decent food and hearing the half time guest than some crappy stadium with no leg room, crap toilets, awful food and not hearing when Sauzee (for example) has to say if he returned as a half time guest.

    Like anything in life itís about standards and for the money I pay to watch Hibs I expect the quality on the park to decent alongside attending with family or friends visiting for the 1st time.

    Some friends being used to decent standards in Germany and England for example.

    The whole of Scottish football should be looking to improve standards as they game here is a mess as it is.
