Season tickets still for sale – new deal available

September 2nd, 2008 1 Comment »

Hibs announced a new season ticket deal today in light of the transfer of Derek Riordan from Celtic.

It means you can pay up over two payments and there’s a bunch of vouchers since you’ve missed the start of the season.  There are plently of Hibs home fixtures left so it still seems like a pretty decent deal.

From Hibs -

Season Extra Time

Hibernian today extended the recently launched ‘Extra Time’ Season Ticket payment scheme to ALL supporters who have yet to purchase a seat.

Many supporters had asked if there were any ways the Club could help combat the ‘credit crunch’ and so this week the Club is announcing a new route to securing a season ticket at Easter Road Stadium:

Hibernian FC Season Ticket – “Extra Time”

This new offer enables Supporters the chance to spread the cost of their Season Ticket over two equal instalments: half paid by 6th September, the remaining half by direct debit on 1st November 2008.

So for example, for an Adult Season Ticket located in The Famous Five Lower, at £355, the new affordable way to pay would be;

A deposit of £177.50 by 6th September 2008

A Direct debit payment of £177.50 taken on 1st November 2008

Plus, for signing up for the “Extra Time” Season Ticket Adult Supporters will receive a £15 discount vouchers (£7.50 for Concessions) for the Clubstore, in recognition that the first home match against Falkirk has been played.

And, for those who have already purchased a ticket for the Motherwell fixture on 30th August 2008 the Club will deduct this from the cost of the Season Ticket – simply bring along the ticket to qualify (or ticket stub after the match).

Please Note: This offer is only available until 3.00pm on 6th September 2008

Roads closed in the interests of public safety and to facilitate the free passage of the public during match days of the season 2008/2009 season.

Pretty much, the roads will be closed off around the ground for an hour before and after each game.  Games are usually 3pm on Saturday.
