Jack Ross has thanked Hibs fans after a brilliant opening weekend of season ticket sales.

On Friday afternoon, the Easter Road club put season books for next term on sale, despite uncertainty surrounding the current campaign. Fans answered the call in some style, going past 1000 purchases in 48 hours.

It’s a phenomenal total in an unprecedented time, which Ross has hailed. In a club message, the Hibs boss has thanked fans for the boost they have provided the club with.

“First of all, I hope everyone and their families are safe and well,” Ross said. “Secondly, having been told that we’ve passed the 1000 mark for season ticket sales, I want to offer a huge thank you to everyone who has done so.

“It’s an incredible show of loyalty and support already during what is a difficult time for everybody.  That level of commitment from you, the supporters, is very much appreciated. Not just from myself, the players and staff – but by everyone at the football club.

“We’re very much looking forward to repaying that loyalty with our performances on the pitch when we return to Easter Road. I look forward to seeing you all again then. In the meantime, look after yourselves and your families. Stay in and save lives.”

Showing their support

Hibs might be one of the biggest clubs in Scotland, but that total is brilliant and a mark of how much fans of the Leith club want to support their team.

Many won’t be in a financial position to purchase season tickets due to the economic uncertainty the global health pandemic is bringing. But those who are have made sure to back their club.

It’s an anxious time for everyone, but those who turn up every week at Easter Road have shown camaraderie to back their team.
