Afternoon all,

I hope you and yours are still safe, this is a tough gig now, the past few months have been extremely difficult but keep ticking away and doing your bit, looking out for all – including the wider Hibernian family.

In the middle of this month the decision to curtail and end the season was made – no surprise there – but the certainty and clarity was welcomed. The club released an announcement at the time thanking our magnificent support, describing how we continue to amaze everyone with extraordinary backing – CLUB STATEMENT | 2019-20 SEASON

Our club continues to contribute heavily in the Joint Response Group (SFA/SPFL) discussions to resume football in a safe manner (JRG presents its Return to Football strategy to Scottish Government | Scottish FA). We now have a plan made in pencil how that may look (subject to change, long way to go before August and moving through the phased approach by the Scottish Government).

– Scottish FA will lift football suspension on June 11 to allow teams to return training in a controlled environment
– Phase two (June review if positive results) professional sports teams can return to full training
– Phase three (July review if positive results) sport can resume with a restricted number of spectators
– Phase four (no set date) football continues with further restrictions eased

Football is likely to be played in August if all goes well. Will matches start behind closed doors? most likely, at first. However, there is a desire to reintroduce fans as soon as it is deemed safe to do so by the medical experts. We’ll know more where it is all positioned in the summer reviews by the Government and medical experts.

The club will continue to review what that means for fans, getting our support back to matches at Easter Road is a priority and I’ll be there to support to make sure we have the right flexibility for us.

The reconstruction ‘proposal’ looks doomed to failure. We’ll maybe find out more this week (we may not even see this put to a vote).

If there is meaningful talks in future years, looking at the reorganisation of Scottish Football, with a better model (competition and financial) for the benefit of the game it might get off the ground between members.

Since 1875

The club see Since 1875 as a big part of making the atmosphere as good as it can be. After discussions between the group and club they’ll be located in Section 45 of our East Stand next season.

I would like to update you on a number of key areas that I’ve flagged recently with the club on behalf of supporters.

Season Tickets and Deadlines

The Season Ticket Early Bird Deadline is set for 5pm, Thursday 4th June alongside the seat reservation deadline and extended finance option (well received).

Continue to explore flexibility options for supporters on deadlines.

KP – I’m hopeful of a solution and trying to find a balance that is positive for all, supporters and club.

Communication

Our communication throughout this uncertain time has been outstanding and exemplar. Supporters appreciate the transparency and honesty in the clubs messaging. Continue to keep supporters updated even if no ‘new’ news.

Following on from the fastest selling Hibs strip of all time we have our away strip now. I’ve always been a fan of judging any strips in the flesh in the clubstore (Does them more justice). Roll on July.

Hands off Hibs

Approaching 30 years for this momentous moment in our club history. As a 4 year old at the time I can remember vividly attending the supporter rally on the 9th June 1990 in the scorching heat. The magnitude of the situation is something that will never be forgotten.
