The work around the ground in Leith will begin this summer ahead of next season. Season ticket holders who will be impacted by the changes have already been notified.

There will be further upgrades made to the stadium too, including the reintroduction of Behind the Goals and more accessible seating. It means Hibs will become the second Premiership side to implement safe standing alongside Celtic. Nick Montgomery's side are next at home on February 24th against Dundee and have a home Scottish Cup tie with Rangers to look forward to. The list of changes have been announced in full by the club.
