The idea of a sunny seaside away weekend in Bournemouth have been dashed with the release of the Premier League fixture list. West Ham will play Bournemouth away at the Goldsands Stadium on a cold January Tuesday evening! The fixture is scheduled for 7.45pm kick off on 12th January.
Premier League regulations state that clubs must provide at least 10 per cent of their overall allocation of tickets for away supporters meaning West Ham’s allocation could be as low as 1,170 for the away fixture.
The away fans are currently crammed into a corner of the ground between the South and East Stand with Eddie Howe wanting them to stay there to give his players the psychological advantage when they are playing in front of a home crowd.
