Supporter Information: Hibs v Hearts

1st February 2022

Hearts supporters attending Easter Road this evening should read the following information.

The Hearts Ticket Office will be open until 5pm tonight for ticket collections.

Fans are encouraged to arrive to Easter Road early so as to avoid queues. Allocated seating is in operation so please sit on the seat numbers printed on your match ticket.

Kiosks inside the stadium are cashless.

Searching for prohibited items will take place and is a condition of entry, anyone deemed to have consumed excess alcohol will be refused entry.

Supporters are reminded that damaging seats or any other part of the stadium will result in the club being billed for repairs, so please act responsibly.

As per Scottish Government legislation, spot checks will be carried out at all entry points to the stadium and proof of COVID-19 vaccination must be shown unless one is exempt. Both digital and paper vaccine passports will be accepted. If you don't have a vaccine passport, proof of a negative lateral flow test can also be shown to gain entry. 


Updated legislation means supporters must have had the booster jag as well. Or, as above, a negative lateral flow test can be shown to gain entry.

The following groups of supporters are exempt:

participants in vaccine trials
under 18s
those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons 
Under 18’s will be able to use their season ticket or match ticket as proof of age, as these have been checked at the point of purchase and are clearly marked with age categories.

Fans who are medically exempt or are participating in vaccine trials should carry proof of this. CLICK HERE to view Scottish Government information regarding what will be accepted as Proof of Exemption.

Travelling from the rest of the UK?

Supporters attending from the rest of the UK and the broader Common Travel Area (including Republic of Ireland) will be able to use their existing Covid Status apps with QR Codes or paper-based certificates. Visitors from outside the UK can use proof of vaccination from the country they were vaccinated in.

Lateral flow tests

Supporters can provide proof of a negative test form to access venues covered by the certification scheme.

In addition to paper copies of a vaccine certificate, proof of vaccine status on their mobile device or proof of exemption, supporters will be able to show on entry a record of a negative lateral flow or PCR test result taken within the preceding 24 hours.

This record may take the form of an email from NHS COVID-19 Notification or a text message from NHS result. Copy of the text message or email can be shown electronically or via printed paper copy.
