Agreed.  It should have been sorted days ago.

Of course it should have been sorted days ago, the question is could it have been sorted days ago?

This will be one of the top priority jobs that BDO will be trying to sort out.   Do people honestly think that they are dragging their feet on purpose?  Anything that impairs cashflow to the club hurts us day by day, so it will be sorted as soon as they can possibly do it.

Agreed on all points. I'd not be surprised if this was BDO's number one priority.

Aye, I could have put that better – it's just very frustrating.

As soon as it's available it will be on the main site, facebook, twitter and here.  Don't worry, they will be publicising it as much as they can to get the tickets sold.

You'd think that half way there would be a millstone to report against ... 1/2 way there but more to do type headline. From what I can gather the people in the txt office are guessing

I was in this morning and was fifth in the queue at 11.15 this morning. Guy in front was buying a ticket for the vermin match. I was looking for a single season ticket in the gorgie stand and could not get one above row 4 in the bronze category. Settled for Wheatfield row 6 near the corner flag end section A. Used to be in y section in the gorgie stand front row with my kids. Sometimes we got absolutely soaked. Staff said it was still a few people every five to ten minutes. Not really any big queues but they are hoping for a busy Friday. Another couple of people came in just as I was leaving. Fingers crossed for a busy weekend.

Spread the cost of your season ticket


Zebra Finance is once again available to supporters keen to spread the cost of their season ticket.

The payment facility was temporarily suspended last week but the good news is it is now up an running.  

With their 4-month interest-free and 10-month interest-bearing plans you can purchase a season ticket for as little as £30.40 each month!

To apply for either plan all you need to do is log on to www.heartsfc.co.uk, select Hearts eTickets and your chosen plan, or alternatively complete and return the Zebra Finance application form which can be downloaded here.

Wasn't working when I tried a couple of minutes ago, for any season tickets online ...but maybe just a temporary thing while they get the Zebra thing up and running again though.

Thank heavens.  I was starting to get worried we may not get to 3000 briefs by the 12th of July.
At which date I suspect we could be liquidated if there is not a good bid in place and also  IF !   they did not have around the 3000
figure sold.

That was my first thought. If they could get the card issue resolved that would be an even bigger step than Zebra. I'm still confident we will hit 3k - I know several people who can't renew with cash but will if the card option is sorted.

Good man, I fly back tonight and haven't been able to get one cos of card issues etc.  Even though all sorted now, think I'll head in to get mine, something about buying it in person from the ol' place.  My first one in many a year.  Not that I'll be able to use it much!!

Agree with all saying transparency.  9/10 it's the best marketing.  A ticker-tocker thing on the website would be good.  I guess if and when it reached 3000 would people stop buying who otherwise would have?  Not in my opinion.  You're either getting one and haven't cos of the card issue, being on hols, waiting for zebra, waiting for payday, waiting for spousal approval etc.  Those who are getting one will.

I've been overseas for 5 years now.  Go to every game when I'm home, which is often and sometimes for a fair spell (2 x 6 month maternity leaves) but never enough to buy and seaso.  Before that I played Saturdays, so again was a walk-up customer.  Saw more home games than I missed generally.

Only one to go in section D! N1 and N2 are also pretty close to sold out. I'm a bit shocked at how many are available in F, from across in N3 it always seemed fairly full last season but now looks pretty empty. Also noticed that a lone hero has bought the ticket at the very far top corner of A! Anyway, over to the dot counters, fingers crossed that pay day and zebra coming back online will see several hundred sold over the weekend before the final push towards the 3000 next week

Well Done Marky.
I've got my first season ticket for 7 years. Been in England for 17 years so can only make the odd game. However my old man will make great use of it when I can't.
Every season ticket sold makes a difference

Avail 3198

With 3,198 available, that makes 9,692 unavailable, of which maybe 600 are not made available to ST holders for various reasons, so I'd guess that we have sold around 9,100.  If my maths is correct, then we have sold at least 2,000 of the 3,000 requested by BDO

I also kept the final figure of seats available from last season, which was around 3370, which suggests that we are around 172 ahead of last season's final figure (including 1/2 STs)
