Hearts give season ticket update


Hearts have announced that they have already sold over 10,500 season tickets for next term.

That figure had been surpassed by the time last Friday’s renewal deadline for existing seat holders passed.

Despite criticism of manager Craig Levein from a section of the club’s fans, it appears most of the supporters are remaining loyal to the club.

The disappointment of a sixth place finish in the Premiership for the 2018/19 season was tempered by progression to the Scottish Cup final and Betfred Cup semi-final, which both ended in defeat to treble treble winners Celtic.

Hearts had an average highest attendance of 17,553 across their 17 league home games last term, the third highest in the top-flight behind Celtic and Rangers.

A Hearts spokesperson said: “As always, everyone at Hearts is extremely grateful for the fantastic support shown by the fans.

“We have done our utmost to implement a ticket structure that is fair to everyone and have frozen prices across a broad range of age groups, all with a view to making Tynecastle Park as accessible as possible.

“We are delighted that over 10,500 Jambos have already secured their seats and we hope many more will join them as we gear up to the 2019/20 season.”
