Hibernian has announced the details of a brand new hospitality offering coming to Easter Road Stadium. From being the first Club to install floodlights, to being the first British club to play in Europe; Hibernian FC is always innovating, as this latest project shows.
In more recent years, Hibernian supporters have seen improvements in and around the stadium, with new kiosks, giant screens and LED advertising boards to name a few. Now, the club has unveiled a brand new matchday hospitality offering, which includes four new spaces for supporters to enjoy.
Working alongside design partner, 442 Design, the West Stand is currently undergoing a major revamp that will see the hospitality offering double in size. Each space will provide a unique offering, different to the next and with ranging price points to accommodate supporters.
Bringing 442’s designs to life will be Hibs’ construction engineer partner, Procast, who have already got to work on the refurbishment ahead of the start of next season.
New state of the art spaces
To match the state of the art new spaces, the club has partnered with one of the country’s leading catering companies, Elior, who have vast experience providing high profile hospitality to some of the biggest venues across the UK.
Fans can expect a wide range of food, from gastro pub grub and matchday snacks to premium buffet style, open kitchens and four course fine dining.
Hibs’ new range of hospitality packages will have something for everyone, so whether you’re treating yourself or your family, looking to book for a group celebration or entertaining clients, there is a space for every occasion.
The 2022 edition of ALSD International is being hosted at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this September 19-20, and will focus on optimising revenue through New Builds, Renovations & Service Expansions, with Architecture & Design, Fan Experience, Hospitality & Interiors, Premium Seating, Rebuilding & Recovery, Sales & Service, Sustainability and Technology some of the key pillars.
Hibernian FC Commercial Director, Greg McEwan commented:
We are delighted to be able to offer four brand new offerings for our supporters to enjoy on a matchday.
We recognised that in previous years we have been lagging in our hospitality offering due to only having two options available.
We were selling out our hospitality offering every week, so we knew we were clearly missing further opportunities. These state of the art new spaces will vastly improve the matchday experience for Hibernian FC supporters and we are looking forward to seeing this new and exciting project come to life.
There are four exciting packages for fans to choose from:
The Albion Bar was a fans favourite, and it is being brought back to life on the first floor of the west stand. A venue where fans can watch the live matches, wear their colours and enjoy the build up to the big game.
Hibs rich history will continue to grow and its place in this City will only get greater.
Inspired by Turnbull’s Tornadoes – the first choice XI that treated Hibs fans to some of the best football since the days of the Famous Five – a squad led by none other than the Famous Five’s very own Eddie Turnbull.
One of the great eras of Scottish Football never mind Hibernian and it is great to honour such a squad with this unique offering for fans where they can enjoy looking back at some of the great matches of the generation.
Hibernian Football Club have been one of the great innovators in Scottish Football and continues to do so. The new Pioneers offering is to celebrate the history of ‘firsts’ the Club have led the way with. Pioneers is the flagship matchday restaurant that offers fantastic views across the pitch so fans can soak up all the build before kick-off while enjoying the ultimate hospitality experience.
