It was quite precipitous!

I only remember it as a covered terrace from when I started being taken to games in the mid 80s, but my God that terracing felt like the north face of the Eiger.

Hibs - among the pioneers of the 20s and 40s - yesterday announced the immediate end of the matchday programme after 75yrs continuous.

Some iconic cover designs from the 'golden age' in 1950s & 1960s:







 

Immediate? As in they aren't going to produce any more this season? Seems a strange thing to do - why now when they could have either stopped at the start of the season or waited until the end of the season?

https://www.hibernianfc.co.uk/article/communication-and-content-changes

After reviewing our communications and content output since the start of the 2021/22 campaign, we’re making a number of changes that we’d like to share with our supporters. That starts with our matchday programme. We used the international break to analyse the readership, downloads, and purchases of each edition and have made a decision to no longer continue with these in their current format.

We do, however, understand that there is a section of our supporters, currently and historically, that like to purchase written publications from us. With this in mind, we’ve come up with an alternative and will produce a 100-page quarterly magazine. The magazine will attempt to bring you closer to the club, our players, our staff, and aim to give you a great insight into Hibernian FC. We aspire to print the first edition in January.



So issue v St Johnstone on Sunday 26th September was final ever: but nobody knew. No special last edition etc.

Sad way to end what started 96yr ago and was spectacular 60yr ago.

Desperate cash-flow issues?

Whatever, some great cover photos there (the key to this thread!), so thanks to @HibeeJibee

How does that work with Scottish cup where you have to produce a programme I think.

I actually thought you had to produce a programme for top flight matches e,g Arbroath didn't normally issue one while in Division Two (afaik), but produced them in 1959/60 & 1968/69 when in Division One. But maybe that all changed when the Premier League started. Or maybe I'm talking nonsense.

They've changed a lot of the staff "upstairs" lately I'm sure. This absolutely reeks of a new manager in charge doing something in the hope it makes them look intelligent and worthwhile. Probably formed a "think tank" and drew up a "strategic plan", before having multiple meetings discussing costs and sales etc., before deciding it was a good idea.

No specific mention of programmes in cup rules now.

Articles of Association simply say:

Quote


29.3 A club or recognised football body issuing a match programme shall make available one page for promoting the Scottish FA’s activities and interests, as from time to time may be decided by the Board.

If mandatory, actually enforced, and home draw R4-R6... presumably they'll do an 'ad hoc' special.

Myth sadly.

Splendid, that saves me some work.

Suppose it could be a requirement under their promotional/media protocols - or with sponsor (which cup doesn't have just now!) - but certainly rulebook itself is silent regarding programmes.
