About Hibernian FC

Hibs FC were founded by Edinburgh's Irish community and were first crowned national champions in 1903, a year after winning the Scottish Cup.

The golden period for the club was in the 1940s and early 1950s, where they won three championships in four seasons (1948, 1951, and 1952).

In 2016, after waiting 114 years for a Scottish Cup, the club beat Rangers 3-2.

The next day, over 150,000 supporters gathered to celebrate in the streets of Edinburgh with the trophy paraded by an open-top bus.

Today, the club comprises the men's team, women's team, the development squad, and the Under-18s group.

Hibs FC community

Though success on the pitch is not the only thing the club stands for.

In 2008, the club launched their Community Foundation, aiming to improve the lives of local residents.

Areas covered included enterprise and employability, health and well-being, and education.

The Foundation offers courses and programmes to provide support to those who need it, providing community coaching and educational programmes.

Hibs FC Foundation is a symbol of the club's commitment to making football accessible to all.

Inspiring young hibees

Together, we arranged for Hibs TV's Gordon Smart to visit young Hibee Jacob, who suffered from online abuse after his dad shared a photo of him on Twitter in his Hibs gear ready for his first ever match.

This spoiled what should have been a memorable day for father and son, which was something the club and Macklin Motors were not happy to let go.

Gordon paid a surprise visit to Jacob at his home, inviting him to join him on a day out to Hibs FC's training ground to enjoy a kick-about with the team. Just one of the ways our partnership aims to create positive memories for young fans and tackle the issue of online abuse head-on.

Watch the video to find out how we helped put a smile back on Jacob's face.
