5. Transitional Payment Arrangements for the Main Stand Season Ticket Holders
As we move from our old main stand to our new stand, scheduled to open in season 2017/18, current season ticket holders in this stand will require to be re-assigned to new seats. Many of these seats will now be in Gold or Platinum pricing categories, rather than the Silver category that previously applied to all Main Stand seating to reflect the limited and ageing facilities.
In order to assist season ticket holders who find themselves faced with a larger than usual price increase, due to this reclassification, we are offering a transition period, as outlined below.
Silver Category Renewals:
* New Silver Category Pricing will apply as normal
Renewals in new Gold Category:
* Season 17/18: Silver Category Pricing will apply
* Season 18/19: Full Gold Category Pricing will apply
Renewals in new Platinum Category:
* Season 17/18: Gold Category Pricing will apply
* Season 18/19: an increase to the mid-point between Gold & Platinum Category Pricing will apply
* Season 19/20: Full Platinum Category Pricing will apply
This offer is only available to current Main Stand season ticket holders who wish to renew.
Any new Season Ticket Holders in the Main Stand will pay normal category pricing.
6. Seat Guarantee and Price Freeze
In order to generate funds for the completion of the new main stand a special initiative is being introduced which will assist the club’s cash position during the re-development, while providing benefits to supporters over the next 3 seasons.
For a £100 donation to the Tynecastle Redevelopment Fund (TRF), the Club is offering a three year price freeze and seat guarantee as follows:
(i) A guaranteed price freeze on your Season Ticket from season 2017/2018 up to and including season 2019/2020, provided you renew your Season Ticket each year.
(ii) Guaranteed priority to purchase your Season Ticket seat, for all non-league matches, from the opening of the new stand which is expected to be 9th September 2017.
(iii) A 50% reduction in our '1 in a million' benefit scheme, saving you £50. This scheme will comprise a range of club benefits and special offers at local entertainment venues and restaurants. Further information relating to this scheme will be provided separately.
Unfortunately, this Price Freeze option is not available to Main Stand season ticket holders who have taken advantage of the transitional payment arrangements and the Seat Guarantee is not available to Roseburn Stand season ticket holders.

9. Season Ticket SmartCards
Season Tickets are in the form of a SmartCard which gives you access to all matches covered by the Season Ticket.
An administration charge of £5 is payable for the replacement of lost SmartCards.
Season Ticket holders who forget/misplace their SmartCards for any given match may be issued with a paper Season Ticket for access to the Stadium for that game only. The Season Ticket will be issued subject to the holder’s SmartCard not being used for the match. In the circumstances a Season Ticket can be requested from the Season Ticket Office, using the contact details above, however the Club will not “fast track” any such requests. The Club reserves the right not to issue a replacement match Season Ticket where a SmartCard is lost.
In the event that Season Ticket holders are unable to attend a fixture on a specified date, the Club encourages holders to contact the Season Ticket Office and advise that their ticket will be available for resale for the specified match. By contacting us you are giving us authority to re-sell your seat and this cannot be reversed or credited if you change your mind. While giving the club the right to re-sell your seat, our policy is to pass on a number of these tickets to the Big Hearts Community trust to distribute to worthwhile causes.
