Hearts have agreed to pay for Partick Thistle supporters buses for Saturday’s game between the two clubs at Tynecastle.
Following early consultation between the clubs, Hearts made the gesture after the original fixture on Saturday, February 13 was postponed at extremely short notice.
In a statement, the Edinburgh club said: “Hearts is pleased to confirm that, following discussions last week and careful deliberation, we will cover the cost of the official Partick Thistle supporters’ buses to travel through to the capital this weekend.
“As we all know, the previously postponed game was called off just before 1pm on Saturday 13th February following persistent heavy rain and then a late torrential downpour which effectively flooded parts of what had been a playable pitch.
“This caused considerable inconvenience and cost to many supporters from both clubs. While we cannot reimburse every individual supporter on a case by case basis, we hope that this gesture will demonstrate the club’s appreciation of just how difficult things can be for supporters.
“We felt it was particularly relevant given the fine gesture from Partick Thistle during season 2013/14 when Hearts were in administration and a donation was made by the Maryhill club in relation to travelling Gorgie fans.
“Thistle have already sold the vast majority of their allocation for the game on Saturday, a match which will also see Hearts wear their official third strip which features the names of over 8,000 Foundation of Hearts pledgers.”
