The club’s Championship campaign doesn’t get underway until October

Hearts fans’ incredible backing of the club was again reiterated with the announcement that more than 10,000 season tickets have been sold.

Despite the controversy of the last five months within Scottish football, the supporters have not turned their back on the club, instead using their feeling of injustice to strengthen their backing.

Robbie Neilson’s men won't get their Championship campaign underway until the middle of October following relegation.

Despite the lower division and truncated season it has not stopped the large season ticket sales with 1,000 in the last week alone. In addition, the support Foundation of Hearts continues to grow with the group handing a record £150,000 to the club last week.

Neilson paid tribute to the supporters.

“The fans at Hearts are always phenomenal and to get that backing is great,” he said. It's the uncertainty of what’s going to happen and what the season is going to look like when the fans can get back in but we just hope we can get them back in as soon as possible.

"They can give us the backing they have done over the years and they continue to do just now.”

Meanwhile, the club and its charity Big Hearts have produced nearly 138,000 food parcels at Tynecastle during lockdown as they support Social Bite.

Hearts Head of Hospitality, Graeme Pacitti, said: “We are pleased that we have been able to support Social Bite’s efforts to feed thousands of people who have found themselves in the most difficult of circumstances during lockdown.

"It is testament to the loyalty of our supporter base that we have been able to draw on so many volunteers to scale up production to such an impressive level.”
