The organisation confirmed that a sum just shy of £24,000 was donated to the club throughout March, meaning an average sum of more than £25,000 has been added to the team’s coffers every month this season via the supporters.

Thanking fans for their donations as well as record-breaking shirt sales and huge season ticket numbers, Hibernian Supporters chairman Jim Adie explained how fans can continue backing the team as they enter the last five games of the season plus the Scottish Cup campaign just months after the successful #Hampden100k drive.

Adie said: “Since the start of the pandemic we have been blown away by the desire of our members and supporters to help the club through a difficult trading period with no fans in attendance at Easter Road.

“We have always said that we wanted to provide fans with a platform to help the club if they were in a position to do so and as we come to the end of the season we think it appropriate to reflect on a huge collective effort across the board which has given us a good chance of qualifying for Europe.

“We believe the last 12 months has shown the strength of the Hibernian support and we hope our #RoadToEurope initiative will encourage fans to consider coming on board as we all look to finish the season strongly and move into the summer with confidence.”
