Club Statement: Latest Covid Update

Following the Scottish Government’s announcement earlier today, Hibernian FC has requested that the SPFL bring forward the scheduled winter break and reschedule the affected fixtures.

The announcement stated football will be played behind-closed-doors for an initial period of up to three weeks, starting on December 26.

That means our games against Dundee United, Celtic, and Hearts would all be affected.

Hibernian FC completely understands that this is an incredibly difficult situation due to on-going pandemic, and with that in mind health and safety should be at the forefront of every decision, which is why the Club has made this proposal to the SPFL.

Alongside this, every effort should be made to allow supporters to watch their team and the game they love. The Club also believes that this will protect the integrity of the competition and would save clubs from the potential loss of substantial revenue.

The Club is now waiting for guidance from the SPFL and will update supporters in due course.
