Picked up my season ticket last week and it shows seat 5 in the section I'm in. Tried to buy ticket for United game in the same seat and its showing seat 12. Confused I emailed ticket office to be told that they have changed seat numbers and that 12 is my seat number. She said that new season tickets will be issued before season starts!? 

 

So seat 1 will now be classed as 8!? Anyone else heard of this happening?

 

Yes, been explained on this thread. As they say, same seat different number.

Can't believe the utter denial some on here are showing on the drop of season ticket sales.

The Levein effect is in full swing and many are clearly not renewing, as was suggested by lots. This isn't a hate thing against a former footballing legend, it is all about results, style, incompetence, overstaying a welcome and the future of Hearts..

A number here also seem quite dismissive of the drop, as if it was a foregone conclusion. It wasn't:

The Scotland support were transformed with optimism and united again recently when the new manager came in. We subsequently saw a really good home attendance and then travelling support for the last two games. A new honeymoon period exists.

Kilmarnock have made a statement of intent with their new manger and kept their momentum going with their own support. He wouldn't even be good enough for some on here.....

As for all this crap about the same supporters turning up anyway on a weekly basis and the club not losing out. Some really need to think about this further. On the off chance we are top of the league every week, this may happen up to a point, however a dose of reality is needed. We won't be top of the league for any length of time. Also, in the winter months, when it is utterly baltic, wet and miserable on Tuesday night, people simply don't turn up. Even season tickets holders don't turn up as we saw may season. Not many are going to pay £30 for the privilege. Season tickets balance out the good runs and the bad runs, that's why they are so important.

Football is a habit and sadly our travelling support collapsed at the end of last season. Lowest in my lifetime and I am in my 50's. It was once again utterly unbearable under Levein. Why does this matter with season tickets. It only takes one or two in a group to say enough is enough and then the rot sets in. Things like golf start to become more important than they should be.
Walking up to home games is easy now, as there are always plenty of seats available. This differs from the past significantly,since there is no longer the threat of "not getting a ticket" to help focus the mind. 

I still haven't renewed and I have had a ST for over 30 years. Hearts are a way of life for me but this isn't working under Levein. I'm fed up leaving the stadium annoyed and having to listen to our own support booing the team of the park every week. Assuming they have not already left at half time. In my own group, two are not renewing due to Levein. Us travelling to watch Hearts is almost certain not to happen now either.

Keeping Levein in place has consequences and a drop in attendances, is once again one of them.

Great post but unfortunately the CL happy clappers will rubbish anybody that dares to criticise him. Apparently progress now is getting horsed in the LC semi,  losing the SC final and watching Hibs overtake you in the league.

Getting beat in the semi final of the league cup and the final of the Scottish cup by the team that has won the last 9 trophies up for grabs, gaining more points than last season.

 

Them's the facts mate, what is the term for the opposite of happy clapper? 

 

Following Hearts must be a miserable experience for some folk.

Strange term "CL happy clappers". Can only think the 'Levein out' people are frustrated there isn't a bigger revolt to force the issue. 

 

But anyway, as a close watcher of sales over the years and thanks to FF etc we are 300-600 down heading for just under 13,500 sales.

Don't forget, we got more points last season than in 2017-2018. Another backwards step... At this rate we'll only be winning one cup out of three next year.

Agree! 

 

There seems to be some Hearts fans that just love to be miserable ..... they take pleasure from every negative they can find and if there are no negatives they make some up, There must be a way to cure these prophets of doom and turn them into happy positive maroon people they could start by reading(and re-reading) the first paragraph of your post.

 

Then they should think about what their lives would be like if Hearts no longer existed vs now! If they prefer the former then I’d suggest that Hearts are not the team for them!

I reckon we need to keep "pant wetter" and " moon howler"  type tags separate, gives the happy clappers more flexibility. 

 

For example

 

Slaverin moon howler 

Pant wetting, greeting faced bubbler. 

Greeting faced moon howler 

 

If you put the terms together it's limiting, not for me. 

 

I liked the groovy gang and happy clappers. 

Quite up lifting and light hearted

Plenty positives last season.

We put some cash into till by managing a cup run so thats a bonus and the new stand continues to grow and impress.

The product on pitch which underpins it all tho, was, IMO,  turgid, boring and downright purgatory for most of it, post Murrayfield.

If i was pushed on the reasons i would say the mix/blend of the following was out of kilter;

Too many journeymen trying to remain grey men and look safe.

Too many without the mental robustness to cope with the "demands" of Tynecastle crowd

Too many formational changes with relativley new team mates.

 

All clubs get injuries. Our squad did not have the versatility to deal with it. 

Our decisions last August did not look, to me,  like those of  a club that aspired to 4th place, based on 2017-18 final league table and the obvious challenges to get there.

I agree with all of that except perhaps your last sentence (I think) . My feeling was we expected to challenge for 2nd and get at least third, though of course we didn't raise false expectations. Had Hanacek come in in August and had he actually been as good as we clearly thought he was, then it might have been a realistic expectation. The injuries put paid to our chances, plus the other factors you mention. I too (a happy clapper) was bored and rarely clapped. that semi final injury to Naismith really knocked the stuffing out of the team and the fans.

That may assist in addressing the deficit of finishing 6th instead of 4th as in the budget.

Likley more. 

Cup finals are quite a bit more I think once the whole run and TV money is in. 

 

Think it's only around £500k difference from 6th to 3rd. Sc final I think is a good bit more than that. 

 

The Scottish league prize  money is pathetic. Not sure but I Think it's a decent jump when sky get the new contract, still pittance tho. 

 

Ofc, no chance of a euro run or a big draw to help boost the funds. 

Aberdeen Likley got a bit of cash for the two bt games v Burnley last season. 

 

Xxx3rd to 6th is exactly £500k difference. Xx

We'd have made the best part of a million quid from the League Cup semi and Scottish Cup final.

The main source of revenue from the Scottish Cup is not prize money (other than for those in the early rounds). You will earn much more from match day receipts and broadcasting income.

 

Here is the Scottish Cup prize money for 2017/18

For playing in:
Prelim R1: £3000
Prelim R2: £3000
R1: £4000
R2: £5000
R3: £6000
R4: £9000
R5: £12000
R6: £15000
SF: £18000
Runner Up: £30000
Winner: £60000

 

If the prize money was the same last season then Hearts would have received £84,000 in prize money (£30k + £18k + £15k + £12k + £9k) for their run to the final.

Cheers, that's what I meant sf and final gate receipts and TV money is large ( relatively). 

 

I know the prize money is poor. 

 

Even in the past, the games with hibs have been worth close to £200k if reported figures were true. 

 

That's a whole league placing prize  money, in fact it is more. 

 

Ofc,it would be good to combine the league and Cup runs.

... you have your opinion, it’s yours & you are entitled to it, no dispute ... the concern is how people of your ilk turn positives into negatives. Perhaps it’s an unintentional way you express yourself but it comes over as if you enjoy any Hearts failure and that you love to wallow in misery .... very negative and depressing!

 

5 years ago Hearts could have ceased to exist, look at them now ..... they’re doing great!

 

Please be happy, rejoice and try to be positive, celebrate all that is great about the famous Heart of Midlothian ...THEN NOW & FOREVER!

I don't know is the short answer, but if Hearts share of the gate at the final was equivalent to say 40% of the attendance, then you might  be looking at 20,000 x £20 (allowing for VAT and concessions), or £400,000. Add broadcasting rights, and receipts in the run to the final and you could be looking at the bast part of a £1m boost to the club's turnover.

 

The League cup semi on its own could probably generate something similar to the SC final, given that the two semi's were probably pooled.

We were to make 14 million turnover for the season. But was told it more like over 15 million because of cup runs. Find out in December I guess.

Just done another count.

 

I am not convinced how accurate it is in respect of Main Stand sales as according to my figures for today and yesterday there appear to have been 48 sold in Section T in 24 hours. The following figures come with some sort of caveat.

 

Seats left - 3,935

Estimated sales - 11,737

Club estimated sales - 11,962.

 

Total of 37 sold excluding Section T.

Im strongly influenced, in my aspiratiions comment, by the selling of the first 19 goals striker in a very long time and completley failing to replace. We had a lot of pts to catch up on Dons and hobos even before that decision.

Im not faulting the decision necessarily, but its not the look of a club aiming for 4th from that position.

I don't think we intended to leave ourselves without a replacement - I think Vanacek wa ssupposed to be the replacement, with Uche as alternative and Wighton backing him up. I would criticise them for not being sure enough re getting Vanacek, though as it turns out he may have been useless anyway

Yeah, 108,000 or so at the LC semi’s. even at £15 per ticket that’s a share of about £400k to us plus tv money.

You aiming to get to 30k posts before we get to 12k sales? That would be some post no.30,000 if you bump your own thread!

 

 

Now I am.

Can't believe the utter denial some on here are showing on the drop of season ticket sales.

The Levein effect is in full swing and many are clearly not renewing, as was suggested by lots. This isn't a hate thing against a former footballing legend, it is all about results, style, incompetence, overstaying a welcome and the future of Hearts..

A number here also seem quite dismissive of the drop, as if it was a foregone conclusion. It wasn't:

The Scotland support were transformed with optimism and united again recently when the new manager came in. We subsequently saw a really good home attendance and then travelling support for the last two games. A new honeymoon period exists.

Kilmarnock have made a statement of intent with their new manger and kept their momentum going with their own support. He wouldn't even be good enough for some on here.....

As for all this crap about the same supporters turning up anyway on a weekly basis and the club not losing out. Some really need to think about this further. On the off chance we are top of the league every week, this may happen up to a point, however a dose of reality is needed. We won't be top of the league for any length of time. Also, in the winter months, when it is utterly baltic, wet and miserable on Tuesday night, people simply don't turn up. Even season tickets holders don't turn up as we saw may season. Not many are going to pay £30 for the privilege. Season tickets balance out the good runs and the bad runs, that's why they are so important.

Football is a habit and sadly our travelling support collapsed at the end of last season. Lowest in my lifetime and I am in my 50's. It was once again utterly unbearable under Levein. Why does this matter with season tickets. It only takes one or two in a group to say enough is enough and then the rot sets in. Things like golf start to become more important than they should be.
Walking up to home games is easy now, as there are always plenty of seats available. This differs from the past significantly,since there is no longer the threat of "not getting a ticket" to help focus the mind. 

I still haven't renewed and I have had a ST for over 30 years. Hearts are a way of life for me but this isn't working under Levein. I'm fed up leaving the stadium annoyed and having to listen to our own support booing the team of the park every week. Assuming they have not already left at half time. In my own group, two are not renewing due to Levein. Us travelling to watch Hearts is almost certain not to happen now either.

Keeping Levein in place has consequences and a drop in attendances, is once again one of them.

 

"The Levein Effect"? Is that when a guy returns to the club at the lowest point in our history and within 2 years has contributed to us being back in Europe?

 

You've had a ST for 30 years and now aren't renewing now. That means you happily renewed after Tommy McLean, latter Joe Jordan, Csaba Laslo's dire anti-football, The Korobocha/Frail season, John McGlynn.... you watched us get pumped out the cup and finish 5th or worse numerous times and renewed, and go years without a sniff of a trophy. You were fine with Romanov and Robinson both ripping the heart out of the club (or try to) in different ways. And now you choose not to renew. Where do you think the club would be if everyone followed your lead?

I don't know is the short answer, but if Hearts share of the gate at the final was equivalent to say 40% of the attendance, then you might  be looking at 20,000 x £20 (allowing for VAT and concessions), or £400,000. Add broadcasting rights, and receipts in the run to the final and you could be looking at the bast part of a £1m boost to the club's turnover.

 

The League cup semi on its own could probably generate something similar to the SC final, given that the two semi's were probably pooled.

The SFA take the first 43% of all income from the final

Has anyone who’s taken a ST on finance had their eTickets account updated with their ST yet?
