Hammers tickets are too cheap according to a top West Ham source

A Hammers club insider says the players’ wages and amortisation of transfer fees, can’t exceed a fixed percentage of turnover to comply with financial fair play regulations and sadly the revenue must come from somewhere to increase West Ham’s turnover to enable them to compete.

While this year’s increases in season ticket renewals are above inflation the club source insisted last year’s increases were a lot less than inflation.

Speaking to Claret & Hugh today a club source told us:

“Our season tickets really are too cheap, If we were starting afresh tomorrow our season tickets would be 50/75% higher and there would only be concessions in band 6. We cocked up badly by under-pricing season tickets from day one when we moved to the London Stadium. Most supporters realise how cheap they are! Our day one renewals this week were at a record level.”
