BETFRED CUP SEMI-FINAL TICKET UPDATE

BETFRED CUP SEMI-FINAL TICKET UPDATE

By: Hibernian Media on 24 Oct, 2019 11:35

Hibernian FC today confirmed that the SPFL has taken a unilateral decision to reduce the club’s ticket allocation for the forthcoming Betfred Cup semi-final against Celtic at Hampden.

The SPFL action was contrary to the Club’s stated desire to retain a section of tickets that would have allowed more Hibs fans to access concession price tickets, including children and OAPs.

Leeann Dempster, Chief Executive, said :”Whilst the Club accepts the need to ensure the best possible attendance at showpiece games, it is our view that it would have been reasonable and practicable for the SPFL to accede to our request to retain a higher number of less expensive tickets. The response has been disappointing and frustrating.

“It’s my view that segregation would not have been an issue for the area we requested, and as it is the decision taken means the vast majority of Hibs fans now wishing to go to the game will have to pay the higher price ticket regardless of their age or status.”
