After having gone to US soccer fields, I was a bit disappointed by this one. I can’t believe they still do will call tickets for games. In the states you buy them online and scan in right at the gates, easy. Here they have you wait for ages and then you have to give them your home address, no idea why. Because of this we were about 20 min late into the game. I understand why there’s no alcohol in the stadiums but definitely is a massive bummer. The stadium itself is pretty nice and spacious, didn’t feel cramped. I couldn’t believe the away supporters were more loud and exciting than the home supporters. And such a small supporter section too! Overall it was a pretty ok experience.

Nice stadium, good folks, good Atmosphäre, east stand recommendable for best view and atmosphere, though they have now a singing area in the famous five stand.

Winning 6-1 losing 2-3 we've seen it all this week on a magnificent pitch that looks better than some greens I've putted on. One of the best attacking ploys is to prey upon defenders who want to keep the ball alive instead of booting it out the park and resetting the defence. I watched a masterclass on the attacking side taking advantage of this idiocy. Sadly it wasn't always for my team. I'm 60 now so watching Hibs for this length of time has taught me how some players or coaches learn and others clearly don't. They punt it towards the line for the full back to press up and go into the space commonly just outside the box, shoot, cross or get fouled by the guy who should've just put it out. I saw a fullback juggle a ball badly that was going out only to mis-control it and have it nicked then foul the boy for a penalty. When we did compete we were good but it only lasted 15 minutes. Ah, football!

Third visit, third different stand. Always a nice experience and the staff & stewards are always very kind. Good luck the Hibees for this league campaign!

History (from Wikipedia)

Easter Road is an all-seated stadium, split into four geographic sections, known as the Famous Five (formerly North),[21] East, South and West Stands. The Famous Five and South Stands are the oldest part of the present stadium, built in 1995.[6] Each stand has two tiers, a cantilevered roof and a capacity of nearly 4,000.[24] To keep within the boundaries of the site, the upper deck of each stand angles toward the centre.[24] When the stands were built, the Famous Five Stand was above pitch level and the South Stand was below, but this was corrected when the natural slope was removed.[24] Each stand also stretched beyond the east touchline, which was corrected by widening the pitch when the East Stand was rebuilt.[24] Between the two tiers of the Famous Five Stand there are function suites and lounges.[21][24] Before the stands were rebuilt in the 1990s, the north and south ends of Easter Road were known as the Cowshed and Dunbar End respectively.[21] The southern end was called the Dunbar End because there was a lemonade factory named Dunbar's located behind it.[38]

The West Stand, which initially had a capacity of 6,500, was built in 2001.
[21][39] A reception area, club offices, media centre, banqueting suites, hospitality area and changing rooms are located in the West Stand.[21][39] The capacity of the West Stand was reduced slightly when the new East Stand was constructed in 2010, as the pitch was widened during this development.[40] The East Stand, which is the newest part of the stadium, was built in 2010.[37][41] It is the only stand that is not split into two tiers and has a capacity of 6,400.[4] The decision to build the East Stand as a single tier was taken to maintain the character of the old terrace, which had been a simple viewing area without many facilities.[42]
