Hibs foot stamping has seen them handed 2000 extra tickets for the League Cup Final. This is an unbelievable, and unprecedented, development with Celtic’s allocation currently still on offer to season ticket holders who attended the semi-final.
Is this how Scottish football is run now? A tyranny of who moans and bitches and wails the loudest? The club which jumps about a bit and shrieks most simply gets what it wants?
No wonder people have doubts about the governance of the game.
Do these extra tickets get taken off Celtic?
You wouldn’t think so, but you never know with the way our game is run.
If they are, is our club actually going to stand for that?
What an utter disgrace that would be.
The whole thing is ridiculous anyway.
Hibs could not sell out their semi-final allocation. They failed to sell out their own ground last night for a home game in the league. The fairness argument is preposterous. Hibs actually invoked “sporting integrity.”
I honestly didn’t know they cared.
I know Celtic fans who have attended every game this season and who might not get tickets on the back of this decision, whilst Hibs fans who haven’t been at a match in years might find themselves there.
Nobody is going to tell me that’s fair.
Nobody is going to tell me that this is the right thing to do.
There are many reasons why this is a disgrace, not least of which is that our club may now have less tickets to give to our own season ticket holders.
Hibs average attendance this season is 13,000 including away fans.
They have twice as many tickets for the final as they need to satisfy the demand of their season ticket base.
We have half as many tickets as we need to satisfy ours.
Explain to me where the fairness is in that.
The governing bodies are taking the piss.
Hibs have kicked up a fuss and been rewarded for it.
This game has no leaders. It is a free for all.
