So if we take away the non attending ST holders

there was still 15500 Hearts fans there yesterday. Not bad for a 12.00 KO in the middle of a poor run of results and performances. 

The fact is the club sold all the tickets available to the home support.

If you are a Hibs fan at the wind up you will be aware of the masses of green seats on show every game at ER while still claiming crowds of 17k.

Didn't think the Roseburn stand held that much, maybe a error?

Always thought it was 3500.

You must have the same debilitating disease as my brother which accounts for why he didn't go.

Some folk at work.

Holiday.

Sick.

Prior family arrangements.

Car breakdown on way.

Watching on tv rather than travel from (e.g.) Ayr, Aberdeen, London.

Christmas Shopping with wife, boyfriend, bidey-in.

 

Will these do for starters

The Dead could surely get the tickets held back for 'walk ups'?

12 o'clock kick off times are a slap to the people who go to games.

 

It's something imo all fans should boycott

I don't think it holds that much.

Maybe it was 3,477 as a mis-type or they included hospitality sales (although highly doubt 300 Rangers fans were in hospitality).

Much greater number of empty seats 5/10 minutes to go when we were still trying to get something from game. 

 

Is that what we were doing? Don't think McGregor had to put a knee on the grass in the second half.

I don't think there has ever been an update from the claimed 20099  after the building of the new stand.

It looks like the effective capacity is about 500 to 600 lower.

The various nibbles at seats (TV studio, Wheatfield tunnel, etc don't seem to amount to as much of a shortfall as that.

Why? We've sold the tickets and got the cash. 

If anything, as we're a business she should be applauded for managing to sell tickets to people who won't always use them

Maybe they counted in the wee bams in G and N who act like Rangers fans.

My great nephew was playing his last game of the year yesterday, variety of reasons why people can’t make a 12pm ko on a Sunday.

This.

The Gorgie suite seats looked full and from watching the highlights I couldn't see many empty seats in the upper Main so these hospitality seats were presumably sold.

More could be sold twice if we gave an incentive to ST holders to release seats.

There were also a few unexplained gaps, near the front by the police box for example. I don't think they were sold as STs.

I doubt she’ll be too concerned about what you think she should be concerned about. Too busy running the club.

When the game is a sell out there is no good reason to have as many empty seats. I couldn't make a game last season so i just phoned the ticket office gave them my details and they sold my seat.....no problem. This lets a fan get a seat and gives Hearts a few quid. One phone call and everyone wins.

I buy a season ticket, I rarely use it! What’s the problem?

When Hearts officially request STs are returned / released for re-sale I oblige, to the best of my knowledge that has only happened once, Christmas 2016.

 

I buy a season ticket to back the club financially and also know I can turn up watch a game whenever I want!!

I am in the same boat. ST holder for 15 years and have never made more than half the games. But once I could afford it it was a way of supporting the club financially and guaranteeing a seat and cup semi and final ticket. It is very rare for walk up tickets not to be available the day before a game so see no reason to routinely release my seat. Or feel guilty or uncaring if I don't.

I don't want recognition. How exactly are you helping the club when seats are still available to walk-ups?

Depends on where the available seats are. Mines are Platinum in the Wheatfield so I assume they would be in demand for walk ups.

You mean I should care about Hearts fans who are fussy about where they sit for a big game which are only ones where the issue really arises?

If more people offer seats for resale, and attendances are measured as tickets sold, does that mean we may get attendances greater than the maximum number of seats? :berra:

I never renewed as I guessed there would be many games moved for International breaks and TV. 

Simply, can't make it. 

Hearts or no Hearts, not shelling out over 400 sheets for 8 odd games.

I probably attend a dozen or so games but am lucky in that I can now afford to help the club financially  so still get the ST every year.  Fully appreciate it is very difficult for others to do the same.  That said I would not buy a platinum seat and am in the Gorgie so much less than 400 quid.
