Next Thursday will be the four-year anniversary of a day that changed our lives forever.
On May 21, 2016 time seemed to stand still as club captain David Gray ended 114 years of hurt with THAT goal to win THAT game. It was a moment to savour, whether surrounded by family, friends or just roaring incomprehensibly by yourself in your own wee corner of the globe. That feeling has never really worn off.
To mark the occasion, we’ll be replaying the 3-2 win over Rangers in full on our YouTube channel at 3pm – complete with Hibs TV’s Cliff Pike’s emotionally-charged commentary.
We're inviting you to be part of it all over again - wherever you are in the world - to bring together the biggest virtual crowd that we can. We’ll have some special virtual tickets on sale, to help support your club, if you are in a position to.
For £5 you can buy a Rewind: Time For Heroes virtual match ticket and each supporter who does will receive a special digital photobook of the 2016 William Hill Scottish Cup Final triumph via email – packed with some rare behind-the-scenes snaps – and an exclusive wallpaper design for your phone.
We’d love to match the number who packed out Hampden and helped inspire Alan Stubbs’ men on that famous sunny afternoon in Glasgow.
We are also giving away a copy of the sought-after match programme from the day – signed by goalscorers Anthony Stokes and Sir David Gray himself – for the winner of our Man of the Match raffle. It’s £5 for one ticket and £10 for five tickets – putting you in the mix to land a special piece of Hibee memorabilia. We’ll announce the winning ticket, chosen at random, on the night.
Our virtual kiosk will boost the Hibernian Community Foundation’s ‘Famous Five A Day’ initiative – which helps support families across Edinburgh and East Lothian.
It is £2.50 for a virtual pie, £3.20 for a virtual pizza slice, £2.30 for a virtual Bovril and £1.50 for a virtual Capri Sun – with all the proceeds helping a great community cause.
Post-match, Hibs TV subscribers will be able to watch Time For Heroes – the specially-commissioned film with the best pre-match and aftermath access to all your favourites. We challenge you to watch it without a tear in your eye, and remember existing season ticket holders can now take advantage of Hibs TV for free.
We also want to hear your stories, so get in on the act on social media using #TimeForHeroes.
Whether you’re dusting off the old strip for the occasion or have pictures or clips from the day that mean everything to you, we want to see them and we’ll be sharing a few on our channels as part of the build-up.
