Crowds in recent years for home league cup ties usually 6-8000 with more for the ICT game last year which was a decider

 

Live on telly may affect the crowd a bit as no STs apply

Wish hearts realised people want their own seats and would shift alot more if just opened the stands.

 

I get money saving so dont need to get security etc for more than one stand but cant help think we shot ourselves in foot with approach to cup games and stands not being opened

Genuine question here - do you honestly think it's that many people? I can't say I or anyone I know would ever care about sitting in 'my' seat to watch the game if the wheatfield wasn't available. Fair enough if the alternative was being sat behind a pole or in a markedly worse view, but bar one or 2 on here i've never heard someone say this for these games. Wanting a good seat - yes, but their own? Not sure that many people care. Certainly not enough to make back the associated costs.

I'm not sure we are shooting ourselves in the foot. Just my opinion.

 I'd prefer if all the stands were open. Having totally empty stands creates a strange almost friendly game atmosphere.

 

 I know there won't be a big crowd but i don't think it benefits the team having half the stadium shut.

I'm delighted to be in the Main stand - don't often pitch up there (this goes way back to the days when as a 10 year old my granddad would occassionaly take me into the 'enclosure' - the standing area below the old main stand' 

 

Also like that we sit beside strangers - the regular seat thing means you have the same old folk around you which can be a mixed blessing

I must admit I do prefer my usual seat as I get a great view from there, but it certainly wouldn't stop me from going to a game if I have to sit elsewhere

Yeah I agree. My ST is in the main stand, so could have gotten these although going with a lot more folk, but I’ve actually got seats more central for this one.

The reason  many people like their "own" seat, is that they are sitting with friends / family. I have a group of friends who bought a block of seats when the Wheatfield first opened. Trying to get 12 seats together in a free for all can be a nightmare.....

I might be in the minority here, but at cup games, I quite like hving to sit elsewhere. I sit in my ST seat 19 times a season, the wee change of scenery is nice.

I think the club should include an option to purchase a bolt on to season tickets to cover cup matches.

 

I appreciate that we never know how many but it could either be set for either an average number, e.g. pay £100-£120 extra and get access to all home cup games with both parties taking a bit of a risk, or a minimum set up - pay £30 extra to get all home LC group matches with priority purchasing taking care of the knock out rounds (and SC) assuming we make it.

 

I know it's more money when people have already shelled out a large amount, but I'd be up for the extra £100-£120.  Would be good for the club too.

On the surface that's a decent idea and IIRC Hibs have done this. That in itself should make you suspicious!

 

One issue is that we have to pay the opposition clubs their share for these games. So if tickets are £12 we have to pay them £6 for anyone who took up the package, a cup game against category A opposition we'd be paying them £15 etc

I was hoping the gate would be around 12/ 14 k  but being a Friday night and on bt " seems to have put a few of  'it's the first game in a while ,I'd thought curiosity and a wee change from the pub on a Friday etc might have added to a bigger gate  ? But it also tells us that the league cup isn't really that worth bothering about , the earlier rounds it seems ,,, heres hoping for a good turnout.....

Sitting in R in the new main stand. Sat there for the 1st time vs Saints in the cup 2 years ago. Since then I've sat another 2 teams for the Caley cup game and Angus Beith game.

 

Sat in the Gorgie for the first time in years last season because I took my wee one.

The big issue is people are on holiday mate, particularly any time in the trades fortnight. Disastrously I will be asleep when the game is on Friday night and it will be the nightmare wake up and check the score.

Ye could be not that many people, fair point...and insignificant number. I just always sense and get impression - maybe false one - people hold out for their own seat in a certain stand and as time passes just make other plans to go to pub for example whereas if stand with their seat was open they would get in for ticket.

There are so many factors at play here, this is the earliest Hearts will ever have played a League Cup tie at Tynecastle. It's still in the key first fortnight of the school/trades holidays. To get a sense of what the key holiday period can do we should look at our last European venture. Our first round game was in June (yes!!!) and we actually got a bigger crowd than our second round game in the 3rd week of July. League cup ties on the 22nd and 24th July had gates of 6,265 and 7,486 in recent seasons. OK that was Cowdenbeath and East Fife but with all respect to Dundee United are many Hearts supporters going to so much more excited about them in comparison.

 

BT of course won't help but the other major factor is that the group games are played in the spirit, style and feel of pre-season friendlies...I think that is wrong but it is reality.

Likewise the last 2 seasons when I could afford a St. Would move over to the wheatfield and just sit and admire the new stand (if there was nothing desirable on the pitch that is)

V quiet in shop & at the ticket desk. Still a shedload left going by the pile on the desk. On the plus side we’re in the new Bertie for this one instead of the Wheatfield & a few in the 1874 pre match.
