C&H Exclusive: Hammers to get tough on non attendance

Turn up or give up: Hammers to get tough on non-attendance

By Sean Whetstone

West Ham is planning to ban supporters from renewing their season tickets if they fail to attend the majority of games as they get tough on absence ticket holders.

The club have compiled a list of West Ham season ticket holders who attend very few games and do not list the ones they can’t make on the club’s ticket exchange

Hammers to get tough on non-attendance for ‘no-show’ fans

Speaking to Claret & Hugh a club insider told us:

“We are not going to renew some season ticket holders who attend very few games and don’t list their seats on the ticket exchange, we are fed up with so many empty seats at games. The season tickets are so cheap some supporters pick and choose their games and it’s a real problem for us”.

West Ham has a licensed capacity of 62,500 on match days at the London Stadium but previous freedom of information requests have revealed that the real attendance can be up to 10,000 lower with many season ticket holders choosing to leave their seats empty.
