FAN REWARDS SCHEME

FAN REWARDS SCHEME

By contributing to the financial well-being of the club through pledging to the Foundation, Hearts fans have ensured that we have the best reward possible – a Hearts team turning out every week, a thriving club set-up, and a legacy that we can pass on to future generations.

Nothing beats that. However, as a further reward for the support given, the Foundation has – in conjunction with the club – put together a rewards scheme based on individual pledgers’ financial input. By using a ‘points for pounds’ calculation (1.5 Maroon Points for every pound pledged), pledgers are eligible for the rewards below.

When you become eligible for a reward, you will automatically receive an email which will give you the relevant information.

AFTER ACHIEVING 50 POINTS (ANNUALLY):

PREMIUM BENEFITS DISCOUNT CARD

The Premium Benefits package, managed by the club and which provides a discount card scheme to season ticket holders, was extended to Foundation members who achieve 50 points annually. The card enables Foundation members to receive discounts in a vast range of restaurants, hotels, health clubs, hairdressers and other retail outlets in Edinburgh and beyond. (More about Premium Benefits here: www.premiumbenefits.co.uk.)

After achieving 1000 Points:

A SOUVENIR PLOT OF TYNECASTLE PARK

After reaching 1000 points, pledgers are invited to an awards event at which they take ownership of a unique virtual souvenir plot of the Tynecastle pitch, complete with its own GPS coordinates.

Souvenir plot owners are presented with their owner’s certificate and also receive a legend’s card – a souvenir card detailing the career of a Hearts player who has graced their plot.

Plot owners also have their photos taken on the pitch at their plot.

(Please note that these plots are souvenir plots only and do not bring any associated landowning rights or the right to build a supermarket or flats there. Full details of the terms and conditions are included on the reverse of the plot owners’ certificates.)
