When do we think these will come out for next season ?
Looking at the Scottish government new levels pdf level 0 would mean 2000 fans inside stadiums although 12,000 allowed in hampden for the euros

If we were to spread fans out across the stadium it could work but how do you ensure people don't all huddle together inside the stands. Secondly the large crowds of people that assemble in the street as well. I can't say I fancy wearing a mask for 2-3 hours at a time to watch a game.

Even with vaccinations this is going to be a problem for the next year or two, maybe longer.

If thats the case makes me think if its worth it or not.

11,000 season tickets into a 21,000 capacity stadium isn't going to work for a very long time as the 3rd Covid wave ( hopefully very much reduced) must hit again around September/October making the winter season very debatable as to what are the numbers allowed.🤔

I have been impressed by Hibs ambition to hold onto players just for that extra 6 months before Porto and Nissy inevitably move on in the summer and am quite comfortable that 'Ron the Con" is actually anything but and is in fact a very responsible and reasonably ambitious owner.✅

Shelling out £420 roughly for a season ticket is therefore OK for me but I would like an upfront statement as to how Hibs plan to accommodate lets say 10,000 fans over the course of a season and how they plan to structure the return and balance all the different supporter groups by age/location/corporate etc.

It can only be very rough and ready as it all depends on the moving target of Covid and the Government regulations in place but I don't think Hibs should be asking for a blank cheque this time around.🤔

I think from watching the AGM that the club thinking is some of us back in "the fall" and the rest early next year. I'm not so sure that with Hibs Pass with David Tanner and some other add-ons that it's going to succeed in persuading us all to renew against that. Which is a shame as I've no doubt Ron Gordon wants to invest higher in the playing squad....

I'm going to stick my neck out and say there'll be no capacity restrictions at ER by end of August. I actually think all restrictions will be lifted by end July but I'd be looking for longer odds on that one. Israel are pretty close to being able to lift all restrictions and they're not that far ahead of us in vaccinations.

I hope this is the case. Vaccinations will be done by then and what else is there to do.

I don't mind them telling little porkies to try to stop folk going daft. I do think we need to ca' canny till the vaccine is rolled out further and if messages like that help Canada then fair enough.

I have been hearing quite a bit of discussion about the possibility of fans having to get a negative Covid test done or a vaccine passport in order for crowds to return to mass events like football matches and concerts. I seriously hope it doesn't come to that or we really are opening up a can of worms.

If however it came to the choice between the two I would hope the vaccine passport would be sufficient. The idea that thousands of football fans are going to have to get tested before they will be allowed to go to Easter Road doesn't seem realistic in my view. To be honest, I don't think I would bother going back.

Season ticket sales for 2021/22 are going to have to be marketed very cleverly in order for fans to respond in the way we want. The sheer uncertainty at the moment about the future is our biggest problem.

I do however share the optimism from some that things will more or less be back to normal by late summer/Autumn. The vaccine roll-out will really have taken effect by then along with better treatments for Covid. The key thing is to avoid people getting really ill with the virus and having to go into hospital and worst of all dying.

People will get Covid and it's assorted variants forever more. It's going to be unavoidable. I wish the powers that be would be straight with people about this. What we have to reduce to the absolute minimum is people getting seriously ill with it and having to be hospitalised. That's what surge localised testing, better treatments and vaccines (of which there are four of now) are supposed to prevent, and I think they will.

Please don’t shoot the messenger but I was talking to a friend who works at the Wellcome Trust. She said that last summer’s rise in C19 cases was partly down to people bringing the virus back from summer holidays - amazingly something like 30% of new cases at that time could be traced to folk coming back from a handful of Greek islands - Zante was one of the worst offenders (not sure if this was UK wide or more regional). She says if the UK government allow international travel this summer then it’s likely we will see the rapid spread of the South African / Brazil variant here (as well as others). If that’s the case we should expect new lockdowns in the autumn/winter and potentially another 50 thousand + deaths. So no or limited crowds at the football.

I really hope your right. But vaccinations don’t stop spread, and may have limited effectiveness after say six months I think I read. I’m worried we may not see progress for well I don’t really know.
