Following further discussions with the City of Edinburgh Council, the Club is pleased to confirm that the stadium capacity for Saturday’s match against Celtic has been increased to 5,272.
An additional 737 Jambos will now be able to attend the cinch Premiership league opener at Tynecastle and the Club will continue to work with the local authority with a view to obtaining a further increase in capacity ahead of our next home match against Aberdeen on August 21st.
The ballot for the additional 737 tickets will run tomorrow morning (Friday) and those successful will be notified by email by tomorrow afternoon at the latest. Tickets will then be available for collection from the Tynecastle Ticket Office on Saturday between 12pm and 7pm.
We look forward to welcoming more than 5,000 Jambos on Saturday evening and will continue to do everything in our power to ensure greater numbers are allowed in for upcoming fixtures.
