I have brought these things up a few times over the years. We can't guarantee the outcomes on the pitch (3 points each game!) but the club can improve match day and other aspects within their control.
Online sales - seems over complicated
Contactless payment at kiosks (the length of queues put me off as much as the quality and pricing)
Cheaper tickets, Scottish football is hugely expensive, keep it accessible to ordinary supporters.
Reduce the pricing of the replica kit, we just charge these ridiculous prices because other clubs charge the same, if we are a true community club, stop these rip off prices.
Entry system - my new ST hasn't worked yet.
Some kind of loyalty scheme.
I think all off the above would not affect the income in any way (couple of points may improve income).
Things like a fans zone, I'm not convinced this would work, but a well run BTG seems like a no brainer.
Hold back the away fans to allow Hibs supporters to leave by Albion place / Across the bridge / Though to Meadowbank.
What should be simple things, that never seem to change. Pricing, quality & good design, in simple terms, putting the needs of the supporter 1st.

On a slight side note, Hibs to lead a campaign for away ticket prices as happens in England. An SPL wide £20 is plenty.

Safe standing section
Removal of songs over tannoy ~10mins before KO
Better food catering
Better turnstile ticketing system - fix issues to get back on par with last season
Alcohol
Oh, contactless payments for tickets at gates / catering.

Most of these are things that have been asked for for years and ignored. Incredible for a business to treat paying customers with such contempt.
Tannoy, decent food and hot water. It’s 2019

Improved scoreboard and large screen between the South and West stands to rerun clips of famous Hibs victories. I'd love to see us play clips of Gunts getting beat pre derby. Obviously Hibs could use this as an advertising opportunity for season tickets/match tickets/Hibs TV etc. Before people start moaning this would be a waste of money, it's an investment which potentially could last 5-10+ years before a further upgrade.

That bloody tannoy/PA system. It really isn't acceptable at present. Team news aside if there was an important announcement (I.e. emergency) no one can make out a word! This should really be a priority considering the number of people that go to games.

Just to clarify - does that mean "this is what I do every Saturday" type thing, or this is what I wish I was able to do in a perfect world? (eg "have a pie whose underside doesnae stick to the foil"; "enjoy a pre-match libation in a BTG not painted radioactive green")
...get through the turnstiles on time for k.o.
Understand what's being said over the tannoy
Find somebody selling happy hibby
Winning happy hibby
Winning the game
Winning a high pressing game
Not have to fight off seagulls
Not have a seagull shit on ye....
Eh no Mr Power I can't think of anything that would make it better,honestly I'm just happy going along to the match jumping about, chanting and singing and feeling like I'm 18 with all the rest of the fans and watching Hibs even when we're shite.
I just love it. :041::041::041:

Oh nearly forgot can we do away with the score board at the away end and have scantily clad ladies with score cards parading round the ground...oh sorry I forgot I'm no 18 anymore, I wouldn't know what to do with a scantily clad lady anymore. :38:

The things mentioned already were the same issues me and the other folk brought up over 10 years ago through fans engagement.

Every week before and since then the same issues have been brought up here and elsewhere. Every fecking week! Again and again.

Some things happened, some really good things. Lots of basic things haven't and are still frustrating each and every one of us those who only attend home games and those who travel away.

It gets to the time when you wonder why you bother and I no longer bother. I'm not sure the supporters who were full of enthusiasm and worked on things like the blueprint of the Hibernian Way and involved before LWT became a talking shop can be bothered either. We've been beaten into submission and surrendered!

Being able to buy a happy hibby ticket in the east. Turnstiles 42-46, sellers used to be there a couple seasons back but have now vanished.

OR... even better, being able to buy a ticket online.

"Healthier" food options, maybe like the gunts who have a curry stall, india etc etc.

Some fans are unlikely to go home and cook so a better option then the "fast food high cals" please.
Ticket sellers could be supplemented by a text and buy system. Seems simple enough but a grey cloud will come along with some reason it's not possible.

Safe standing area.

Decent grub that you can pay for with card, queues would move a lot quicker and sell a lot more food.

A whole squad a fit and 100% trying players with the basics done right most of the time and the not so basic happening often.

Loyalty points was a biggy for me. Travelling 140 miles round trip, for a home game alone, like others I put a lot of effort into my love of Hibs and cash. When loyalty points where in, a was top of the tree. Which I felt was the clubs way of respecting my efforts.
Then we got fucked over. But that's history now.
So I drifted, change of personal circumstances. Sometimes I would like to go with the good lady. But the pricing for two for a fun day oot is uncompetive with other pursuits. Buy one adult, one half price initiatives on the lesser games, would attract more couples possibly. Probably not doable but it's bums on seats.
More interaction with kids, as they walk up, mascot etc. Selfie opportunities. All good and very low cost out lay for the club. Family friendly matters.
The East with big games is great, smaller games like a morgue. I liked ultras in East.
Food stall top of the East, maybe. Its a long way doon and back up. And it's very slow moving. It's possible maybe.
That's me shut up noo.

We really need to brand the outside of the stadium. Scottish football generally doesn't have a clue how to use its prime advertising space to show off its brand.

The outside of Easter Road should be covered in Hibs branding.

That side of the East as you come up St Clair is prime for a Hibs badge

Arrive at the ground anything up to an hour before kick off because there will be reasons to be inside the ground. These could include:

Proper singing sections in at least 2 if not all 3 home stands. Season tickets for those areas are sold on the understanding that it is a singing section where folk stand up and sing and create a great atmosphere that negates the need for crappy music blasted out of crappy speakers that nobody can hear anyway.

Quality screens in each corner that show highlights of previous games and those team line up things they do on the TV. Again this will negate the need for crappy music and unintelligible mutterings over the tannoy.

Hibs pop up shops inside the concourse of each of the 3 home stands that also sell match day programs and Happy Hibby tickets.

Several different food vendors selling stuff that will be so tasty nobody is gonna toss it away thus eliminating the leftovers those seagulls are so desperate for.

Halftime kids games thus eliminating the subs from standing around chatting.

That will do for starters.

Screens cost a fortune. I’d rather money went up better players.

Use to have pop us shops in the betting booths . Didn’t last long. Takings were very poor

This whole standing sections improve atmosphere is pish. Arguably best fan interaction and doping is in PL, where it’s all seater and also no drink. You remove booze and council coke from UK matches and you’ve got morgues.
“I need a drink and no folding seat and then I’ll sing” makes you sound so ducking dull. It’s no point being a yoochoob ultra then trying to copy what you see, you can’t copy inbred culture.

Major issue in Scottish fitba is. Get them in and out ASAP. But in the in between, get as much cash from them as you can.

Afwiw. I’ll becat a 3rd tier game in PL tomorrow. It’ll be cheaper, in realative terms to the Scottish game. And it’ll be a better “experience “

If your team wins. Does any one care about the process before. Yeah we lost. But I got to stand and had some warm over priced lager from a limited selection.
