Net gains for fans in ticket sale

Hibs fans will have one last chance to get their hands on tickets for Saturday’s historic all-Edinburgh Scottish Cup final.

The Easter Road club have received a small number of returns from Hampden and the SFA to add to the tickets left unclaimed after their ballot and the contingency Hibs kept aside to cover the collection period which ends at 5pm today.

As a result an online sale of the few remaining tickets will begin at 6pm with fans limited to two tickets each. Hibs today stressed there will be no telephone sales or tickets sold directly from the ticket office either face-to-face or by the direct telephone number.

Only supporters already registered on the club’s ticketing database will be able to buy briefs - which are expected to sell out exceptionally quickly - and those sold will be avilable for collection from the ticket office from 2pm tomorrow. Ther will be no option for delivery this close to the final itself. The web address to buy tickets is
