New Hibs Home Kit 2008/09The new Hibs home kit will be released on Friday 13th of June, the same day as season tickets go on general release.

The new it has a white stripe running from the shorts to meet the white sleeves.  The shorts are predominantly green as are the socks.  The picture here is a scan of the mailshot sent out yesterday.

There’s an interesting offer for season ticket holders too.  Buy tickets to the Intertoto home game, Wigan game and Middlesborough game all for £20 (£10 concessions) before 4th July.  Not a bad deal.  Makes the whole four game pre-season £45 (£25 concession) – which is not bad value for 3 friendlies against Premiership and La Liga opposition and one Intertoto game.

Hibs away kit 2008/2009 was reported earlier.

Barcelona, Real Madrid both interested in Steven Fletcher?

Real Madrid CrestThe Scotsman ran a story today about Barcelona joining Real Madrid in the race to sign Steven Fletcher from Hibs.

Colleen Patterson appears to have asked Carlos Naval about the player and he replies that Barcelona are aware of the player but that he doesn’t really know. Well, that’s what I take from it anyway, judge for yourself:

Carlos Naval: “I have heard about him and we have seen him play and if Real are interest then he is obviously a good player. I am not on the technical side of things so I don’t know exactly what the coaching staff might think. We always look for gaps in the team to see where we can fill but it’s not based on the rivalry or just because Real are also interested in the same player.”

You can get tickets for the game now by visiting or or by ringing the credit card hotline, on: 0131 346 5100.

Setanta Sports will also be showing the Hibs v’s Barcelona game live on Zitelli. That’ll be good for the attendance then.

EDIT: Many thanks to all the Celtic fans who pointed out that their strips are green and grey hoops rather than grey and white hoops.  Apologies for any offence caused.
