Banter king questions Hammers motive

KeysKing of banter Richard Keys has taken to social media to ask Hammers Chairman David Gold whether West Ham would have offered the cheapest season ticket in the Premier League if we had stayed at the Boleyn Ground.

Keys on twitter asked”Just wondering David Gold. Would West Ham have reduced ticket prices to £289 if you were staying at Upton Park?”

The new band five  West Ham season ticket priced at £289 is £10 cheaper than Man City’s £299 season ticket which is cheapest in the Premier League.

While West Ham say they want to create affordable family football and the move was spurred on by the recent record TV broadcast deal, others have suggested it is purely motivated by the need to fill the 54,000 seats in the new Olympic Stadium.


On the day of  the season ticket price announcement David Gold told his followers on twitter:

“I am delighted to announce that the best new Stadium in the Premier League will have the cheapest Season Ticket – just £289. dg”

“We have the most passionate and loyal fans in the league. Today’s announcement is about giving something back to them. dg”

  1. He is right though!

  2. Who is right DG or the idiot from Sky ? Jack
    The minute we announced we were going cheap a whole ten pounds there were going to be the non believers with nothing to do midweek,
    Was that our new centre forward scoring last night for Real another good move Van Gal,
    That’s a good one for Wetpants.com numbers and £ signs grab those calculators
    Must go

  3. Ofc we wouldnt but that really is immaterial,this is about the OS tickets.Keys obviously couldnt find one of his make-up girls tops to look down.Must have been bored.Maybe Andy Gray had her in the broom cupboard 😉

  4. it was just banter!

  5. I know that Sarith,i just cant stand Richard Keys,smug little git 😀

  6. Ha, jealousy creeping in already, that’s usually coupled with fear, fear the Hammers we’re coming for you

  7. Cheap jibe from a class 1 tw*t. He would criticise if prices were not cut and he criticises when they are. Why doesn’t he challenge Sky bosses on how they are going to fund the ridiculous bid they made for PL matches? Ultimately, who is going to pay for that?

    The owners have a stadium to fill and a business to run. The reductions are generous and they should be commended for that, notwithstanding the fact that we all know they are making commercial decisions, – and why shouldn’t they?

    A season ticket will be within the grasp of many under 16’s. £99 is payable by most youngsters willing to put themselves out with a Saturday job through the summer. £289 is also not pie in the sky for the average working man, – or even those on benefits, judging by what I see around me.
