Hearts supporters have set a new record after season ticket sales crashed through the 12,500 barrier in less than four weeks.
It’s the quickest the landmark figure has been reached in modern times and demand shows no sign of ending, with the possibility of a complete sell out of season tickets fast becoming a reality.
Supporters have flocked to Tynecastle since the middle of May to renew - and buy new - season tickets for the 2016/17 campaign as excitement about the upcoming Europa League adventure reaches fever pitch.
Head coach Robbie Neilson told Hearts News that he’s grateful for the backing and can’t wait to get the season started.
“12,500 season tickets is a fantastic achievement, and the amazing thing is that we’re not finished yet,” he said. “By all accounts the demand is not slowing down, so I’m anticipating an even higher number in the coming weeks.
“To have so many of the fans backing the team and committing to the club for next season is tremendous. Having a full Tynecastle every week, yet again, will go a long way to helping the team meet its targets on the park.
“I’m really looking forward to the start of the season. With new arrivals to come, European football and a competitive league, there’s a lot to be positive about as we head into next season.”
All non-renewed seats have now been released and supporters have one week to snap up these seats at phase one pricing. Phase two pricing will begin on Tuesday, June 14th at 9am.
Season tickets can be bought, subject to availability, over the phone by calling 0333 043 1874, option 1, online at Hearts eTickets or in person at the Hearts Ticket Centre on McLeod Street.
