Boleyn grounds contents for sale

Boleyn_Ground_Upton_Park_4West Ham have emailed football clubs across the South East in a bid to sell the contents of the Boleyn Ground which are not deemed suitable for the memorabilia auction starting later this month.

The email contained a seven-page brochure in which the club lists over 20,000 items that are available to the highest bidder.

As well as larger items like the floodlights (which were purchased just three years ago for £3m) and scoreboards, the club is also selling one “large stick blender”, a “slicer” and ten fridges from the kitchen, as well as a “police gaol”.  The boleyn1distribution list included sports clubs across the south of England as West Ham looks to strip the stadium bare before the stadium is demolished by developers.

West Ham has appointed Hilco global to run the auctions.

The Stadium Contents Online Auction will open on 18th May and close over two days, 8th and 9th June, while the Football Memorabilia Online Auction will open on 23rd May 2016 and close over two days, 13th and 14th June. A live Webcast Auction, meanwhile, will be held at the Boleyn Ground on 4th June

Supporters can now pre-register their interest in the Farewell Boleyn auction, by visiting www.auctions.whufc.com, where further information can also be found on the auctions and available lots. The auction brochure will cost £20.

Viewing will be available on Saturday 28 and Tuesday 31 May and Thursday 2 June 2016, between the hours of 10:00am and 4:00pm BST. Two people are admitted per catalogue. Please report to the Betway Stand entrance.

  1. It’s all getting very close now.The end is near.Going to be a massive night next week with many memories,most of them happy for me when I think about the times I spent with my family through the generations at the ground.No tears though,just great memories.If I read one more comment on sites about them in tears already I will be crying as well,with laughter.

  2. You are a cold man Stanley lol.Only pulling your leg,I get where you’re coming from.It does get rather tedious reading the same people saying they are crying again.It isn’t a badge of honour is it.Maybe they somehow think it makes them better fans to continually talk about crying.Isn’t my cup of tea anyway,if people want to cry do it but you don’t have to tell everyone you are all the blooming time!

  3. Not cold at all Gobs.I just find it hard to buy into people who want the world to know they are crying all the time about the move.All seems rather contrived & theatrical.Do it but don’t keep telling every man & his dog you are as if to higher your loyalty ranking.It’s only my personal thoughts on the matter.I’m sure many will be in torrents of tears on the day but I can’t abide the ott crocodile tear comments flying around.

  4. Stan your spot on… Yes its bloody upsetting we’re moving, yes we’ve all got great memories but its like a 6 month version of DIY SOS with some of them or counting down the days to Armageddon.

  5. Lol,listen I know I sound cold hearted but I know i like most have had far worse things to deal with in life & though it’s going to be a massive wrench to leave UP our memories don’t get stolen as the builders move in.I can’t stand some of the amatuer dramatics being thrown around.Most of us know we will have a thousand memories swirling around our minds on Tuesday but leave it at that
