    No walk ups in the east for the rest of the season

    According to the online booking system there is only one seat left in the East for half season tickets. Only restricted view available in most of the remaining stadium.
    Are we the only league in Europe where the possibility of finishing a faraway second sells out the stadium?

    As far as I can see there is only one seat left when you browse the east for a Half Season Ticket. I may have missed some but I got an alert from one of my sons yesterday that there was only about one hundred left. I bought one for my younger son, who can only get there when he is not playing football. When this happens he previously just budged in beside us in the standing section.
    We are looking at a marketing person's heaven. Only way you can watch the Hibees at ER is to cough up £400 before the season starts!

    I'm wondering if all the free seats have been made available for half seasons.

    We've sold around 13,500 season tickets all in. According to dotnet there are less than 100 half seasons available.

    The home stands hold around 16,500 in total.

    I can't believe none of the 3,000ish free seats are in the East!

    Any idea how many seats are in the hospitality section? Need to take that out the total available.
    Strange they’d be selling single ST seats in the middle of rows if there’s other seats available....

    Could be time to reduce size of the rarely full hospitality section in the west

    No idea.

    An educated guess looking at the hospitality brochure I'd guess between 220 to 300 if every venue was sold out.

    This chap in dotnet seems to have a fair idea.

    Our capacity is 20,421 and there is 18,973 seats available to fans.

    So that leaves 1,448 seats for corporate/directors/comps. Seams a lot!
    Take away the South Stand and that's around 15,100 home seats. We're still some way off that many season tickets.

    That's further discussed.

    The reasons are likely to be directors and guests, players comps and other Hibs staff and the wee teams, hospitality, media, mascots and families, kids on the pitch at half time type stuff and the likes.

    Looks like Hibs have decided to release the walk up seats,pretty dumb when folk are under the impression that it's sold out.......
