    Singing Section - Update

    Further to our announcement on 28 February 2017, Section 25 of the FF Upper will be transformed into the Singing Section next year.

    To date, over 75 applications have been received. The closing date for applications is 23 March 2017. If the demand outweighs the availability, we’ll contact those who have not been successful and place on a waiting list. We’ll also contact those successful to then arrange the purchase of the Season Ticket by 7 April 2017, in line with the Early Bird and Payment Plan closure at the club.

    Both our Group and the Club have received feedback from a small number of supporters relating to the lack of engagement. Our Group recognise the areas where we have failed to engage with the right audience and have taken a number of learnings from this experience. We’d like to apologise for any upset/inconvenience caused to that population. I also understand the Club continue to liaise with those impacted by this change.

    As ever, we’re happy to discuss these changes and are arranging for a “drop-in session” in the next couple of weeks where all supporters will have the opportunity to ask questions and meet those involved and interested in the Singing Section. Date, time and location to be confirmed.

    We've created a small forum to keep track of updates to the section and details of buses/sections for away games.

    http://since1875.boards.net/forum

    Thanks to everyone who has sent a message to the account. I have categorised these below into a Q&A for your viewing.

    Q – I cannot use the application on the website, how do I apply?

    A – Please send the following information by email to famousfive@hibernianfc.co.uk

    Signed (Your Name) –
    Date –


    Q – How to I apply with my friends/family to ensure we have seats together?

    A – Please arrange for all applications to be sent together in one email. One application per person must be completed.


    We thank you for your continued support and backing. As a Group of passionate supporters, we will continue to work hard and engage with the wider fan base to ensure this is a success.

    Glory Glory

    Well done, mate. FWIW, I think you've done about all you reasonably could - at the end of the day, there's folk who'll complain that the sun rises in the morning, let alone they've not been consulted enough. Look forward to seeing this!

    I have emailed the address with my brothers and my own applications. Is it possible to get an email back confirming the info I sent was sufficient

    We have asked Hibs to allow us to support them by issuing acknowledgements to reassure people. If you want to PM me what you sent I'll confirm accordingly.

    I sent a paragraph saying that myself and my brother would like to sit in the section. I explained that I'll be buying the ticket on behalf of him that's why I am sending them together. Also sent our names, addresses, season ticket type but used the same contact number and email for both.

    As someone who is not affected by this, can I just ask the OP why the club are moving the singing section from where it is just now in the East, to the Famous Five upper inconveniencing those who have possibly had season tickets there for years ? It seems fine to me where it currently is in the East Stand.

    This move was driven by us. Initially we suggested behind the goals; however this would have impacted too many supporters and hibs understandably felt the risk outweighed the potential reward.We are currently based at the bottom of the East, next to the away support. This move will see us almost at the heart of the Hibs support with the potential to grow significantly.

    Who suggested the section you are now moving to? The club or did you guys think you would get good acoustics there?

    We asked to explore the FF Lower. It was quickly ruled out due to impact to supporters and potentially financially.Section 25 was then proposed to which we agreed to give it a go.No doubt it will be far better acoustically, visually as well as holding three times what our current location holds.

    I think the FF Lower would have been perfect for you guys. Im auld skool and long before the auld east terrace, the place to be for singing was the Cowshed(now FF).
    The visual impact, along with the acoustics, would be a great sight, especially when the baw hits the net right in front of you, against the Gunts

    For me, the Upper section takes away the effect that you guys are trying to create, as you are further away from the pitch. Its a bit like what happens at some away grounds with us, 'Well, Killie, etc, that they stick us as far back as possible so we cant get near the pitch, even pre~exuberence days It kinda dilutes the atmosphere a bit, and makes the game/crowd look sh'ite on the telly.

    I totally understand the movement issues, and the considerations to be made, of fans already in that area, but its gonny happen wherever you move to.

    As long as its no next to me, I kinda enjoy a wee kip now and then during a game

    A number of incomplete applications were received. You may have been asked to clarify some details by email.

    Decided to stay in 43 as well. There was limited seats in the FF section and seems to be oversubscribed if I have been following correctly, so dont wanna take the chance I end up in the next section with someone telling me to sit down

    No sure where you are getting your information from @Davy but I'm sure that last info I saw said there were 250 seats in singing section and they had had 95 applications.

    I saw a couple of weeks ago that they'd had 75 and were verbally guaranteed at least another 75. Not sure what's happened in the meantime.

    Too fcukin true.

    It's a singing section no a fcukin standing section.
    They'll be knackered carrying that drum all the way up here anyway, probably lying down rather than standing.

    No seats have been assigned so dont think you've followed the instructions above. If you apply today, you'll be in. Can relocate your ST.
