All Home games to be streamed for ST Holders

Recommended Posts

Sooperstar

Let's not pretend that the original ST Guarantee was around physical attendance at matches. The club taking the piss again.

Not free.

That reads to me as though they have pulled the wool over many fans eyes. They are saying that the 18 match guarentee is being satisfied by access to streamable games. Effectively charging fans around £17 per stream.

That goes against an email that a member on here got stating that the 18 games would only be counted as games fans actually attend.

 

£450 for me so over £32 per stream. 

 

The multiple ST's in the same household needs to be addressed as some could be paying well over the odds to watch a stream on the internet.

Pasquale for King

It’s not really what was promised, or indicated and I fully understand why people who bought multiple tickets from one household would be annoyed. You could’ve bought a cheap ticket for an youth and watched it.

Couple of things to take from this below.

 

They are offering match tickets for those who do not renew next year. Not access to a stream. Should covid continue to restrict fans into next season will they go back on this?

 

Secondly,  "No supporter will be left disadvantaged as a result for securing their seat..."

 

The prices for non STs to access streams will need to be about £30 a game to ensure that promise is kept.

 

Absolute farce.

Got my season ticket, I’ll get access to watch Hearts. Didn’t think I was going to be able to do that this season. Delighted. I’m paying a lot more than £17 a pop though. Happy to do it.

 

Happy trolling though.

Being a ST holder is a great way to support the club......not sure what else you expected in these times.

What do you expect the club to do? Ask us to buy season tickets as soon as we can get to games?

Clubs up and down the country are doing exactly what we're doing.

 

 

the point is- this is what we were told 
 

 

"A 20/21 season ticket guarantees you 18 matches at Tynecastle Park, regardless of what league we play in or of the duration of the campaign"

 

so we were Miss-sold and hearts could be liable too for this

Is there any examples of different approaches taken by other clubs for us to compare against?

 

If anyone feels "shafted" by this, they should probably approach the club directly to see what their options are. That's not a healthy relationship between season ticket holder and club.

Got to say I’m not a fan of this idea the club have announced Dave , 

I saw it as inevitable to be fair. I assume the other clubs with large ST numbers are doing the same?

To my mind anyone who bought a season ticket expecting to see football at Tynecastle this season was kidding themselves on . I personally bought mine assuming there would be no football at the ground and was hoping at best for free streaming . I'm therefore happy that my expectations are met . If i get an option they can keep my 4 missing games as well. 

 

I'm far from loaded but would have been paying this and more to travel to games anyway.

I remember we discussed this at the time. I did say it looked like it included streamed games. You were very quick to put me in my place that I didn’t understand the guarantee.

This won't fly fir a number of reasons ;

 

People bought ST's expecting to be in their seats either this season or, if that's not possible, next season. 

 

Not every ST holder will have access to the Internet or the wherewithal to watch a stream. 

 

Some ST holders will have Internet with speeds that aren't capable of  live streaming. 

 

Multiple ST's in the same household being charged over the odds to watch the sane stream.

Not many other clubs guaranteed 18 games regardless of which season they are played in. We will still be due 4 games next season. I think Motherwell may be the only club who done similar.

Exactly. I have no interest in watching streamed matches; I bought a grossly overpriced season ticket to help the club out but importantly to go the games. If the streamed matched count towards the 18 game guarantee then I have to say that I feel I've been taken for an idiot.  All trust has gone.

Hopefully gets expanded to non ST holders in the UK on a pay per game or whatever option.

 

although most of our BBC Scotland channel games will be away ones I’m sure they’ll be in Tynie on several occasions. Probably starting with the league season opener vs Dundee.

ditto.. quicker people reconcile with themselves that there will be no football which can be attended in any significant way the better. 

Hearts need to pay the players this season, regardless of whether there are any fans in the ground... and this in a division with virtually no TV money

 

The players will need to be paid next season as well. 

 

Presumably people expecting a freebie for this season, will be happy with Hearts fielding an amateur side next season for their 18 matches of physical in their seats attendance?

I think thank god the club is counting a tv subscription as an attendance... otherwise the club would be going bankrupt next season!!


This! I didn’t think we would get in to any games this season anyway, and I suspect we might not for much of next season either. I’m glad we don’t now have a ticking financial time bomb.

They guaranteed access to 18 games, some of those will be accessed online.

Pretty shite for numerous reasons already discussed.

 

Said at the time of the 'guaranteed 18 games at Tynecastle' statement that the wording was deliberatly obtuse and rather disingenous.

 

£450 quid to watch second division football via a shitty internet stream on a 6 inch phone screen. 

 

And as a 'thank you' we get to chance to watch a meaningless kickabout against a 3rd division mob.

 

Wish Id bought 2 STs now.

That would be tricky, especially if the PPV price is less than what ST's are being asked to pay.

Season ticket holders knew before buying that we may not see the team as Covid 19 restrictions do not allow mass gatherings.

Live broadcasts will be the only way to watch the side, i would feel better if season ticket holders FOH members got the games for free. Hearts will work it out.

Spot on.

 

After the Zlamal loan farce, I felt like I had been taken for a mug. Feeling the same again here.

 

I understand what people are saying but Hearts could’ve been much clearer if this was the route they were going to go down or even if it was a potential option.

 

The fans are desperate to help the club and support them financially but there has to be more consideration shown by the club.

I said on the season ticket threat at the time offered that I was sure streaming games would count towards the 18. It is simply not viable to potentially give away free season tickets to all next season.

 

The offer was made because of the 27 game season rather than closed door games. Don't disagree that it was vague in the offer re "18 games at Tynecastle Park".

Only issue with that is we would have to charge over £17/game (approx) so that non-ST holders are not paying less than ST holders. 
 

Natural Orders is getting lawyered-up as we speak 😁

The club will definitely offer the 4 additional games next season, but hopefully the vast majority will choose not to claim it.
