As soon as we can get you back where you at belong at Easter Road Stadium, we want the atmosphere to be as good as it possibly can be.
We see Since 1875 as a big part of that. Whether it’s through their imaginative displays or their general backing of the team, they pump up the volume week in, week out – home and away.
We’ve listened to your feedback and are pleased to say that, for next season, they will be located in Section 45 of our East Stand.
Thanks to the incredible backing shown by Hibernian supporters in season ticket sales there aren’t many areas of the ground going spare with the number of seats required by the group. Availability in Section 45 provided the opportunity for the group to relocate to a more prominent position in time for next season without causing disruption to existing season ticket holders.
Hibernian FC Chief Executive, Leeann Dempster, said: “We have a strong relationship with Since 1875 and we’ve always tried to work with them and support them whenever possible.
“We don’t always have the flexibility to accommodate every request, but this was one we were determined to help with.
“We had discussions with the group before football was halted in March and this was agreed as the best solution to improve their position for next season.
“At the AGM we painted our vision for having the best match experience possible. The long-term impact of the current situation is unknown but we still hold that ambition and will engage with all supporters to achieve that aim when we return.
“Like every single Hibernian supporter, I can’t wait for the day that the team runs out at Easter Road Stadium to a packed crowd – and we hope Since 1875 will be a loud, passionate voice in the atmosphere we hope to create.
“Their Time For Heroes banner from the 2016 Scottish Cup Final is the stuff of legend. Now it’s time for a few new stories.”
We are currently releasing the seats previously held by Since 1875 in the Famous Five Stand, should anyone else wish to secure those spots.
If you’d like to be in and around them, the core group will be based in rows AA and BB of Section 45 of the East Stand and there are spare seats in the surrounding areas. If you have purchased a seat already and wish to move to join them, please email email@example.com and our ticketing team will be able to assist.
