Sky-Sports-vs-BT-SportWest Ham have been announced as one of the three LIVE games this weekend away to Stoke.

It will be our 15th Premier League game shown live on UK TV this season. Each match earns the Hammers a facility fee of around £875,00 so the total will top £13.13m for the whole season, up from £11m for 13 matches shown last season.

West Ham were also picked for 5 live FA Cup games on BBC and BT Sport facing Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool twice and Manchester United twice which earned another £1m TV rights and facility fees.

Next season’s TV facility fees are set to increase to over £1m per game after the new deal increased by 58%. If the facility fees increased by 58% then each televised game will be worth £1.38m to each club. A similar 15 games shown live on UK TV could earn the club over £20.7m next season.

  1. I had not realised till looking at this post we have only lost one televised game to Spurs maybe a good omen for Sundays game 🙂

  2. Seems that televised live games suit West Ham down to the ground . Reckon we might need that habit in the our new home ( home ? ) because it will be nigh on impossible to recreate the Boleyn Ground atmosphere in a big Stadium like the OS .
    But we have sold 50,000 + season tickets ,, so it should produce some noise on match days . It will be tougher at the OS , but big time players are , or should be , above that .
    The main criteria for West Ham is to have players that can perform on the big stage .
    If you look at the really big clubs ( Real Madrid , Barcelona , Man Utd , Arsenal , Bayen Munich , Paris San Germaine , juventus , the both Milan’s ) for example , there are others of course , but that was just an example , then that is where we must aspire . Maybe , just maybe a big Stadium like the OS will lend less pressure on the players to perform to Thier best without so much pressure from the stands ?? , just a thought .
    We need , in other words , players that won’t / don’t get phased by a big Stadium .
    The massively difficult task that Slaven has is to prepare the squad for is the huge change of atmosphere on match days next season . But with his experience I suspect that he his more than capable … We really do need to beat Stoke on Sunday to keep the momentum going . Fifth would be great , but sixth would be enough . Maybe even seventh if things turn out according to the odds this season . Our problem this weekend is Southampton but we must win our game .

  3. You need to change the Southampton score 6th feb. 1-0 loss 🙁
