Attendance - Hibs v Leeds 1967-8 Fairs Cup

Post by exile » Wed Jan 02, 2008 8:58 pm

What was the attendance for the Hibs v Leeds Fairs Cup tie in 1967-8? Your CD spreadsheet has a figure of 30,000 - but this seems both a bit low and suspiciously "round". I'm sure I read in a Hibs history a few years ago that the attendance was something over 40,000.

It is 'suspiciously' round which is unfortunate as Hibs were one of the few clubs in the 1960s to issue accurate returns to the press. However, Europe appears to have been a blind spot for them. I don't have anything other than round figures for home games after the semi-final v Reims in 1956 (44,941) until their first round game v Olimpia Ljubljana in 1968-69 (10,445) and they played eleven home games in that time.

I'm getting to the age where I can't remember what I did yesterday, never mind a question I asked over a year ago!
