    2020 ST benefits

    I was wondering if there would be any benefits to those who put their hand in their pocket to help the club but have since lost their job?
    Iím aware we arenít Chelsea however it would be nice if some fans who sacrificed much needed cash were rewarded.

    I'd imagine we might get free entry to a friendly or two in the summer. Few raffles for meetings players etc and a tenner off the new home top and that'll be our lot.

    If we want the club to strengthen the playing side again in the summer we can't be expecting much more as it all costs the club money.

    I get what you mean but I think our reward will be European football, keeping hold of the likes of Nisbet, potentially agreeing a contract with Jackson Irvine. That kind of thing.

    I get that. But there is fans who canít give anymore. I was wondering if anything would be done for them?

    I've always thought there could be scope to offer a reduced price ST for those who are unemployed. I know people will argue that is open to abuse but so is any concession ticket.

    No one is going to avoid working for the sake of a hundred quid or whatever off a ST at ER. If it means the difference between someone not buying a ticket at all or paying a reduced amount for a season then renewing at full price when they are back in employment then it could be worth it.

    Perhaps only those who have held STs previously would be eligible or something. With a few tough years ahead it's a position a lot of people could find themselves in.

    Thatís a great idea. A lot of us bought STs out of love when we thought covid would be done by September (for some reason). I think any discount would be welcome/ignoring those who contributed at a time of unprecedented hardship would be very cold

    I donít think it would be cold. Most people bought tickets thinking we would see all or most of the games in the stadium but it wasnít to be. Weíve had the fall back of watching them all online for our contribution.

    Any decision to make reductions next year means we donít spend as much on the team.

    It is hard but it wasnít of Hibs making and they have tried to direct all our money to making the team better. Theyíve said a number of times how grateful they are for all of our support.

    I donít know about the general concept of concessions for unemployment. Football is an entertainment at the end of the day. Sorry that sounds harsh but it is a choice to spend on the football or not.

    I think Dundee Utd were first in the league to announce their plans, they are offering around 90% credit towards next seasons tickets but have said they are hoping more than 80% of fans will turn that down based on a survey they carried out.
