One Twitter account has claimed that Hibs still have unsold tickets for next Sunday’s League Cup Final at Hampden.
The Edinburgh side have been bleating since making the final, demanding a 50-50 split of tickets despite taking around 10,000 fans to the semi-final, in contrast Celtic took over 40,000 fans to their semi-final win over St Johnstone.
Hibs were initially given an allocation of 17,000 tickets and claimed on December 1 that they had sold out.
Another 2,000 tickets were then made available, believed to be from the Debenture Section but according to the screen grab there are still a large number of unsold tickets available in the West Stand.
In 2017 Hibs were given half of the tickets to a League Cup semi-final against Celtic at Hampden but barely sold more than 10,000 but having sold North Stand tickets first there was no way of allocating empty seats to Celtic fans while maintaining segregation.
West Stand tickets for next Sunday’s match cost £35.
As at 18:15 tonight still plenty of tickets available in the Hibs end for The Premier Sports Cup Final
With thousands of Celtic season tickets holders denied the opportunity to purchase briefs for the Final due to the allocation split, will the Celtic Board finally speak out? pic.twitter.com/tJnADyMyW6
