Hibs could have as many as 37,000 fans at Hampden for League Cup final against Ross County



Hibs supporters have been offered the chance to take over Hampden for next month’s League Cup final against Ross County after 37,000 tickets were made available to the Easter Road club.

The Scottish Professional Football League released ticket details for the March 13 clash yesterday, with Hibs and County being handed initial allocations of 25,800 and 7,000 respectively.

But should, as expected, Hibs sell out that first batch, it is understood that an additional 11,200 briefs will be released.

County are likely to be handed an extra 3,000 tickets if they sell out their opening allocation.

Tickets are priced £25 for adults and £10 for under-16s.

Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster said: “We are thrilled to have qualified for the Final of the Scottish League Cup, presented by Utilita Energy.

“We want as many Hibernian supporters as possible to get to the match, so with an initial allocation of 25,800 these will be snapped up quickly.

“We have spoken to the SPFL and additional blocks of tickets will be made available to us when we require them.

“It will be a great occasion for both clubs and we are all very much looking forward to the day.”

Ross County chairman Roy MacGregor said: “Everyone at the club is absolutely delighted to have qualified for our first Scottish League Cup Final – presented this season by Utilita Energy – and our second national cup final in just six years.

“We were backed superbly during our semi-final win over Celtic; I know all Ross County supporters from across the Highlands and beyond will be keen to be there on March 13, so I’d encourage everyone to buy their tickets early.

“It should be a superb atmosphere with both sets of fans and the big day can’t come quickly enough.”
