Every time I click on the ST link on the club website I get a warning message from a site called readymag. com.

Anyone else got similar problem ?

 

That's how you view the brochure: https://readymag.com/hmfc/1004640/

Well that's me renewed. Now looking forward to Mr Levein doing his bit in the summer transfer window. I know Thistle were poor but Saturdays first half performance (or better) is what we have to aim for. Down to you now CL!

£495 is a massive increase on last year.

 

Can’t remember exactly what I paid last year. Must have been £420-450?

 

Will renew but I’m not happy about that price.

 

Edit: And as an aside, a ST at Hibs for a very similar seat would cost £405. Aberdeen is £410. That’s quite a big difference.

It's a bit rich saying that the increase is down to the cost of maintaining a stadium with an increased capacity.

 

The increased capacity and the uprating of seat classifications should be paying for it itself, and there shouldn't be the same outlay on maintenance.

It wasn't more than £440 mate. Still cheaper than going shopping with the wife every Saturday though.

I can't view the prices on my phone. Don't like the sound of the increase though. Think that'll push it to over £500 for Scottish football :D

 

Also the renewal period seems rather short. Will definitely be waiting to the general sale period.

 

 

*just seen £495 quoted above so not quite the £500 mark yet

Not sure Hearts can really justify the price increases here. I’ll still renew, but getting a bit sick of the begging bowl coming out all the time. I understand it’s needed to pay fo the pitch etc, but the product on the park needs to improve massively next season 

 

Hopefully the new pitch will last another 20 years! Nobody likes a price increase... and I wouldn’t be happy if I thought money was being wasted.  From reading Ann’s statement we need this if we going to increase investment in the squad and finish the stadium improvements. I reckon they also have some concerns that season ticket sales maybe down this year and this may also be a reason for the increase.

 

Will renew.

Platinum was £470 for current season  so a £25  or 5% increase. Basically a £ a game more.

Was there not a discount period for early birds that brought it down a bit?

Weird - the site has a valid security certificate until 2019 according to my PC.

Had a look on etickets - my renewal is the same price as last season, so the price freeze is in place :thumbsup:

This should be fun. Can't wait for the thread to head south and I'm sure the moaners will be along soon when they have digested the statement and brochure. Or maybe not.

 

My increase is reasonable and I will be renewing in due course.

If sales are disappointing by the time the transfer window opens that certainly sends a message to the board about what they need to be doing.

 

Not much good when it falls of deaf ears though.

£75 hike for me in section T

 

Not worth my while renewing at that price so won't be for the first time in years.

No extended renewal period as some were  saying was likely given the early sale.

 

No early bird price.

 

Price increase for my seat, exactly how much I’m not sure, but £495 is frankly ridiculous. Particularly as the facilities in the Wheatfield are terrible.

 

Hope the club aren’t selling seats in all 4 stands. Opportunity to save money next season by closing 1 stand.

Renewal Period: 21st March – 2nd May:

 

Supporters who wish to renew their existing season tickets must do so during this period, otherwise the seats will be released for resale. If you wish to renew but also wish to move your seat, you should still renew and you will then be given the opportunity to request a move during our transition period.

 

 

Transition Period: 2nd May – 9th May:

 

Fans should contact the Ticket Office to request a move.

 

 

General Sale: 10th May - Onwards: 

 

Tickets go on general sale, subject to availability.

Being serious for a change I can see that because everyone's personal circumstances are different.

Think it was £470 for platinum might have been £450 for a renewal though. I will renew but agree a bit steep especially as my partner is retiring in November and she/We are planning a few trips overseas so I will end up missing a good few games.

been here before

If I recall mine cist £470 for Platinum in the Wheatfield so an extra 25 sheets. It does seem a bit pricey in comparison to Hibs and Aberdeen (although Pittodrie is a hole) but to be honest 500 notes to watch the standard on offer both at Tynecastle and Scottish football overall is a bit steep.

 

Im not sure. There'll be plenty of walk ups next year. Might just go with that flow.

Doesnt impact me but glad the club has spread out the ages for the youngsters tickets.

 

Anyone know what the income was from the 14k season tickets this year? Hard to tell given the differing prices.

I'm silver in the Wheatfield and think it was £320 last year so a £20 increase. Ok by me and I will renew as soon as I can.

I think it was £320 for this season mate, so a 20 quid hike is not bad as far as I am concerned. 

 

Others may not agree.

No U13 category either.

 

As a platinum ST holder with 3 kids, two of whom would have been in U13 category, I feel very let down.

 

Renewal cost for next year is £1155!!

 

Yes, I could downgrade to Gold, but all the decent seats in those sections are gone and getting 4 seats is always a challenge. It would also result in the club receiving considerably less cash from me next season.

I say this every year and will always do so , but surely you must have a degree of sympathy for parents/carers who will now have to find a extra money for kids tickets ?

 

£100 extra for 2 kids tickets along with their own price increase? 

 

My situation is that I've got to find along with my £395 my daughters £215 ( 17 & still at secondary school) 

£610 for a slightly restricted view , it better be better ON the park next season

Good honest statement from Ann. None of the bullshit we read earlier in this thread about early sales being for the benefit of the fans, helping them to plan and save and so on and so forth.

Basically "we need the money for the stand".

Whole timetable brought forward together with an appeal to buy as soon as possible.
