Hearts could leave Tynecastle

Hearts might eventually have to leave Tynecastle according to new owner Ann Budge.   The stadium has been neglected for some time and is in a state of disrepair.  In particular, the neglected 100 year old main stand is a problem.

The stadium is being patched up, with particular attention to the requirements of safety, but there are limits to what can be done given the prudent financial approach of the new regime.

It is also not possible to expand the present stadium.   However, it is recognised that fans have a strong emotional attachment to it.   Over the next eighteen months it is proposed to review all the options, but no decision is likely before the club is handed over to the fans’ foundation in five years time.
