We have been advised that our home fixture versus Hibernian will be played with 500 home supporters in attendance.
This follows two days of discussions after the First Minister's Tuesday address advising of restricted numbers at sporting events for an initial period of three weeks. United alongside several other cinch Premiership clubs expressed a desire for the winter break to be brought forward.
On Thursday night the SPFL Board ruled that games on 26 December should go ahead but games scheduled for 29 December and 2 January would be rearranged as the winter break is brought forward.
Season ticket holders who purchased tickets during the loyalty period and who haven't already been selected in previous ballots will now be entered into a ballot for tickets for the Hibs game on December 26.
SEASON TICKET BALLOT
Season ticket holders who are eligible have been entered into a ballot for tickets and those who are successful will receive an e-ticket via email before 5pm on Thursday (today). These season ticket holders can then use the digital ticket for entry either via their mobile device or by printing at home.
Supporters will be housed in the George Fox Lower stand and one metre social distancing will be in operation (although family groups who receive e-tickets can choose to sit together).
