Recommended Posts

Special Officer Doofy

Now that they’ve set a deadline for renewals, they should start shifting again. 
 

Honestly can’t wait to head back in to the city again. Miss Edinburgh, and miss HMFC.

Looking at the shambles with Premiership teams virtual tickets, Hearts now have 2 months to get that side of the season tickets bang on. Watch what the other teams get wrong and make sure ours is pretty slick.

Exactly.

Plenty of providers out there that can give us a good reliable streaming service

Got a meal booked on Monday in the main stand for the wife's birthday. 

Will be renewing 4 season tickets at the TO also that day. I think we will see another surge now that the deadline has been set. 👍

Is it? Ok thanks for the heads up m8, will do it over the phone then.

Got a problem trying to get one of the accounts assigned to me so I can buy them all online, was hoping to get it sorted when I went in.

What’s getting into a game got to do with it? You buy a season ticket to financially support Hearts (at least that’s what I do), seeing a game is a bonus ‘icing on the cake’!

 

I'm sorry JF but that's just utter nonsense. You buy a season ticket to see your football club play at home. You get a better deal than paying it per game.

It’s different for everyone. As I mentioned earlier, for some it’s little more than an arrangement whereby you pay money to watch a game. For others, it’s as @Jambo-Fox described. I won’t be going to many games on my season ticket, but it’s about giving them my money and using it to assemble a good team.

That’s fine .... we buy season tickets for different reasons - I’d get a better deal if I bought tickets on a match only basis. We are all different which is good and there are no rights or wrongs! We all support Hearts regardless!

Great post.

The fans are in uncharted territory. Whodathunk existencialism would ever be presented to us in such stark and easily understood terms. We are talking about the very existence of Hearts and even football beyond it being a TV only experience. I bought my s/t weeks ago in the full knowledge that I am unlikely to enter Tynecastle this side of Christmas. Originally I thought this Christmas, now I think it will be Christmas 2021. Clubs cannot survive without supporters, some will go under, we need to make sure it's not us.

i doubt if I have had my money's worth for a season ticket (in terms of being cheaper than pay as you go) for the last five years as I can't  usually get to more than about 10 games a season . For me it's about supporting the club, and also about ensuring I can go when I want to go, without the hassle of buying a ticket

does anybody know what will happen with the '18 game plan'  if the season starts behind closed doors? Will the 18 games start from the first game fans are allowed in?

I suspect virtual games will count towards the 18 home games. Basically a discount of 4 games next season.

It's quite simple. Hearts said your ST will allow you to attend 18 home matches. Regardless of which season they are played in. Or if you are planning on renewing next year they will provide a discount to next years ST to the value of games you were yet to attend.

My big concern is that if everyone took full advantage of that offer we would be completely financially screwed for season 2021/2022.

Assuming they give free access to season ticket holders for streamed Tynecastle games I’d say there is a chance and to be honest I’m ok with that.

True but it's a something Hearts have obviously calculated for. I think a decent amount of people will still opt to pay full price. 

Perhaps our away ticket fund will help counter that too.

Don’t think it’ll be a big problem. I think the majority won’t take the offer. If they do, then they are well within their rights though, and it’s only right that they should be able to do so. I am proud of the club for doing this. I’m glad we are in a position to offer it to those who may have to take it up. I think without that offer, we would have sold far fewer season tickets. I expect the fund raising and FoH pledges will more than mitigate for the loss.

I renewed when they first went on sale.  I just want back to games ASAP.  Also as angry as I am with the whole SPFL debacle I'm actually looking forward to seeing games against other teams instead of playing F****** Motherwell every other home game, or so it seems.

"Access to games"

 

Online is access. 

 

But I think there is a decent chance we can go.

 

Complicates playing at Murrayfield though.

Thats how I read it also, giving free streams to season ticket holders is giving access. Makes no difference to me just don’t want people expecting big discounts next year.

Literally says 18 matches at Tynecastle Park.

 

I'd bet my house on the fact that we won't be counting online streams as attending a game.

The whole 18 games thing has confused me and that's why I'm not renewing for the coming season...if it looks like we're getting a full season next year then I'll buy one again but I'm just not sure what the 18 games thing does to next years season ticket sales.

I presumed that for any games which are missed this season, you would be given an additional ticket for a game next season. You would still be paying for a full season ticket next year 

 

this will be at least 4 tickets so far with fewer games this season

Shouldn’t the club come out and clarify what this 18 match situation is. Even on this thread there is confusion about whether 18 games includes access to online streaming of games. 

 

I have not renewed yet, and TBH I would feel a bit shortchanged if say 5 of my 18 games were just watching on Hearts TV.

An additional ticket to give to a friend? That could be impossible to guarentee to everyone depending on a number of things. How many STs we sell, how many games we miss this year, how many away fans attend etc.

 

My Season ticket cost me £315 which is £17.50 per game in an 18 game season. If Hearts are planning on counting streamable games as in their words "...access...to a home game..." then they'd need to charge non ST fans at least £17.50 per match to stream to their home. Otherwise they will have screwed over ST holders. 

 

As far as I am aware there hasn't even been any discussion from any official party (other than Morton recently) about teams even being allowed to stream games outside of the Premiership.

Will take in any attended games this season and a good part of next whether at Tynecastle or more likely Murrayfield. Most sensible compromise I would imagine.

Yeah I think you are right, that everyone is different. That’s why I think the club should send out a message to clarify to ensure nobody buys a season ticket on a false premise.

This whole idea of live streaming of matches for any team is not worthwhile the attention its been given.

Firstly for ourselves it cannot be possible for a streamed game to be counted as one of the 18 guaranteed games.Some fans, admittedly a small number, won't have access to enable streaming.

For all teams the idea that a ppv option for non ST holders will generate worthwhile income is nonsense .Non ST holders will simply congregate in small groups and pay once, or will borrow log in details from someone-there is going to be lots of ST's registered to one household who will only require one.

There may also be legal minimum age for someone to whom a company can offer streaming services 

Not our concern but for the premier teams any worthwhile income would obviously be from OF fans subscribing for away games.This will be a non starter as the games will more than likely be on Sky.

I was in the shop earlier.There seemed a decent stream of people at the ticket office.Good to see.

On a side note the plaza is a bit of a mess.Weeds coming up etc.Any Gardners on here could nip down and give it a tidy up?

Wonder if maybe the club will leave it up to the individual and just give them the choice between:

 

1) no discount next season

 

2) discount next season 

 

3) discount in the form of TV access

 

That would make most sense to me. Leave it up to the individual.
