Stadium Smoking Regulations
Stadium Regulations

Smoking within the confines of Tynecastle Park

The Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Prohibition of Smoking in Certain Premises (Scotland) Regulations 2006 state that no smoking is allowed in premises that are wholly or substantially enclosed.

For the comfort of all supporters and staff smoking is prohibited in all hospitality areas, the seating decks and the entire length of the concourse including the stadium corners.  We appreciate that some supporters wish to smoke pre-match and at half-time.  For this reason, the club has identified authorised smoking zones which do not breach legislation and also consider the comfort and safety of all supporters and staff.

The authorised smoking areas, the only area where supporters can smoke, are set out below and on the enclosed map.

Main Stand Supporters

At the bottom of the Gorgie corner steps in the area barriered off and as directed by our Club stewards.  Please note this does not include the steps.

Gorgie Stand Supporters

Wheatfield Stand Supporters

Roseburn Stand Supporters (West side home support)

HMFC Stand Safety Managers

HMFC Stand Safety Managers will be on hand to assist and direct supporters to/from these areas, along with our Club stewards.   

We would wish to remind all supporters that our Club staff and stewards are there for your safety, security and service so please respect them and cooperate fully with their instructions.

Your assistance in adhering to this policy is appreciated and we thank you in advance for helping us to ensure the comfort and safety of all supporters on matchdays.
